Revolutionize The Way Things Are Shipped As A Shyp Courier

UPDATE: In March 2018, Shyp’s CEO, Kevin Gibbon, announced they were shutting down and were laying off all employees.

Let’s be honest, shipping things is a hassle. You have to box your item up, label the package with the correct address, go to the shipping store, stand in line, research rates, pay for extra insurance, and cross your fingers that your item arrives on time and in one piece. It’s a time consuming and often frustrating process. Not anymore. Shyp is here to change the game.

Shyp is an app-based business that makes shipping packages convenient, affordable, and hassle free. As a consumer all you have to do is take a photo of the item you need shipped. Then open up the Shyp app on your iOS or Android device. Enter the pick-up location and the end destination. Include your contact details and payment method and your pretty much done.

Shyp will send a courier to your door in under 20 minutes. That courier will bag and tag your item so you can easily track it. The item is transported to the local Shyp warehouse where a vetted packer will carefully package the item and label the box. Once the package is ready to go, Shyp transports it to the delivery company (USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL) that offers the best shipping rate – and off it goes.

As a consumer, you can track the package via the Shyp app from start to finish. Plus, you can rest easy knowing that your package is insured. Shyp is available 7 days a week from 8 AM to 8 PM. This groundbreaking service only costs $5 plus the lowest shipping rate. The fee covers Shyp’s logistics, infrastructure, technology, and support features.

Plus, they offer address free shipping, which means that Shyp will ensure your package is always sent to the correct address. The real question is why would you ever ship something yourself again?
