Frequently asked questions


How quickly can you pick up my package?

Pre-booking will ensure you have the least delays for the pickup of your goods. However, we will be able to confirm a pick up time when you call our office. Generally it will be within 30 minutes of your call. If there are any delays en route you will be notified.

What do you need to know when I'm requesting a quote?

For us to quote a price for you, Our Customer Service will need the size and weight of the consignment, the delivery and collection postcodes. The size of the consignment will enable us to provide the most appropriate vehicle size for the task. The postcodes are used to map and route the exact mileage.

To complete the firm booking, it would help us if you provide a little more information, such as contact names at the collection and at the delivery point with the company name or building address. The more contact information you are able to supply the easier and smoother the delivery.

How do I pay?

Having a credit account with us is the easiest way to ensure a faster service. If you do not have a credit account with us, we will ask you for payment before we undertake the delivery. We accept most credit and debit cards or you can pay by fund transfer or cash on collection of the goods. Opening a credit account is easy - simply complete and return the account application form and we will do the rest. Contact our Customer Service and we will be happy to send you a form.

Can my package get lost?

No. Your delivery starts and ends in a dedicated vehicle, unless we specify otherwise. A signature is collected at the point of delivery to verify the safe delivery.
