I love the fact that the transporting price, can be bided on, and the keenest professionals are looking for their jobs. It makes a change from having to try to get people to do collections for you.
I also may transport locally and use the service from both sides. Awkward large objects locally are easy for us , but small or far away items are not , as we don't have part loads going multi direction and the fuel costs would normally prevent us from entertaining the purchase of items outside of our locality. Thats where these other other providers really help us, and allow us to purchase, and now collect from much , much further afield.
