PHS Teacrate has upgraded its packaging materials service to provide customers with next day delivery as standard. Teacrate's packaging division was formed last September to offer a comprehensive nationwide service to the removals industry and the new next day service standard is expected to further increase the company's success in the removals sector.
A dedicated tele-sales team headed by Nicola Humphries has been at the heart of the new division's success and is expected to be expanded again later this year. A newly developed on-line ordering system will also be launched to further streamline the ordering process.
Business Development Manager Simon Johns said, “The average delivery time for packaging materials in the UK is around three to five days and we wanted to offer something better. After all, we deliver crates to our customers the next day, so why not do the same with packaging? We've invested over £750,000 in vehicles and IT infrastructure during the year to make it happen, and now we're ready to deliver. I firmly believe that customers will experience the most efficient packaging materials service in the UK.”
Teacrate holds large stocks of materials at its six depots across the United Kingdom and operates a dedicated fleet of specially adapted vehicles to allow rapid loading and unloading of palletised materials. The vehicles are all equipped with tail lifts so that heavy deliveries can be made without the need for a fork-lift at the delivery site.
Customers ordering packaging materials either on-line or through Teacrate's tele-sales team before 3.00 pm, can expect delivery the following working day.
