Why You Need A Two-Man Delivery Service For Garden Furniture?

two man delivery service for garden furniture

The winter is – hopefully – on its way out and British householders are turning their thoughts to revamping the garden to take full advantage of the warmer weather. Who doesn’t love reclining with a cup of coffee or glass of wine outdoors?

Benches, café tables and stools, dining sets, BBQs, sofa sets, and gazebos and pergolas will soon be high on the agenda of British shoppers.

But delivering garden furniture is rife with complications that require a specialist two-man delivery service to give the customer an excellent service they will remember and recommend.

How does a two-man delivery help?

First and foremost, garden furniture is heavy, bulky and unwieldy and the garden access to some properties may be narrow, to say nothing of the difficulty of accessing flats to reach a balcony.

A two-man team of trained, professional couriers will be able to quickly reach the customer’s site of choice with minimal stress, while a generic service could annoy the consumer by simply dumping it on the kerb.

Customers now expect premium services like removing the packaging, assembly and installation, recovery and disposal of old garden furniture, seven days a week collections, and liaison with the courier on delivery windows.

A good delivery partner will also remove the need to pallet products up, a time-consuming process. Labelling the goods up and waiting for the company to collect them frees up valuable time for retailers.

Why is two-man delivery important for garden furniture?

Customer purchasing habits have changed. E-commerce sales will account for an estimated third of total retail sales by 2024. Consumers have become more at ease with turning to online retailers for large lifestyle items including garden furniture.

Specialist two-man teams will show a demonstrable commitment to health and safety and will be certified to regulatory standards.
