Anyvan lets you get large items from A to B without paying a fortune.
Several ?delivery auction' services have launched in the last year, but Anyvan is one of the best we've seen. Listing a large item you need transported - be it a car, piano or cow - is free and very easy, with dedicated options for house moves and clearance and the useful ability to enter an eBay item number where applicable. Couriers then browse the listings and bid to ship your goods. Aside from its tidy design, what lifts Anyvan above similar sites are the extra features such as displaying requested shipments on a Google map, letting you upload an image of your item and encouraging you to leave post-delivery feedback.
