Two man delivery specialist Panther Warehousing is to offer its services seven days a week. This is designed to meet the needs of internet shoppers asking for the same speed of delivery for heavy items as they do smaller items.
Panther Warehousing is offering two hour delivery windows on the day and cut off times as late as 10pm. It also offers collections of items on Bank Holidays, and this the company believes will make it even more popular with clients and customers alike.
Colin McCarthy, Chief Executive, Panther Warehousing, said: “Consumers have become very discerning about what they want from a retailer and one of the deciding factors is definitely the speed and convenience of delivery.
“They want the immediacy of the high street from the comfort of their home. It can make the difference between a retailer making a sale or not. People aren’t all able to take a day off work during the week to take delivery of a bed, sofa or new kitchen appliance and clearly such large items needs to be delivered to their home.
“Saturday and Sunday deliveries are the obvious answer, so it was a logical step for us to provide that service as we have always put our customers and in turn their customers at the heart of our operations.
“Consumer expectations are higher than ever before – people have come to expect that they order one day, will arrive the next, whatever day of the week that happens to be, and their expectations are the same whether it’s a book, bed or a super size American fridge. Our service offers total visibility, flexibility, convenience and choice.”
Panther also offers a ‘day of choice’ option for customers wishing to offer householders the opportunity to plan further ahead when ordering large items, for instance as part of a refurbishment or house move.
