Having a baby is one of the happiest occasions in any families’ life; however, it can also be very expensive. The cost of pushchairs, cribs and the many other items can add up and leave you a pretty impressive bill, especially if you want to buy everything new.
Despite, auction sites like eBay and classified websites like Gumtree, which make it easier to find good deals on such items, the size or shape of the objects make them very awkward to post or very costly to ship, therefore, many are advertised as ‘pick-up’ only, this can be a major headache if the crib of your dreams is located in Glasgow and you live in Brighton! In cases like this the cost saving you make using auction sites can be wiped out by using an established transporter.
