Meeting growing expectations

LIFE moves at a fast pace now and the rise in online retail giants and ever-decreasing delivery times has left customers with high expectations from a courier service.

Businesses have come to rely on goods getting to where they need to be, when they need to be there, and local delivery firms are up against some tough expectations.

Gofers, the Northampton-based delivery and courier service, is a same-day delivery specialist, combining its own fleet of vans and team of highly experienced drivers with access to thousands of vehicles across the UK to ensure delivery times can meet those expectations.

Clive Toomey, who runs Gofers with his brothers Kevin and Trevor, said: “Courier and logistics solutions are vitally important for business, particularly to the local market, where a fast-response, cost-effective courier and delivery service is essential. The massive growth in online ordering has changed the sector and we have to keep up with that.

“Our local service gives customers in Northamptonshire the peace of mind of having a reliable courier on their doorsteps, whether that’s for regular or one-off deliveries, but we can also offer same-day and next-day delivery across the UK.

“Booking a collection and delivery needs to be quick and easy, and our updated website ensures we meet demand.”

The Gofers website gives information about everything from same-day delivery locally and nationally, right through to international delivery services. It allows customers to choose the size of package or vehicle needed and input the distance to be covered, so a quote is available instantly, and the job can be booked there and then.

Customers don’t necessarily have to have an account with Gofers, although there is a 30-day credit facility for those that have, and there’s no minimum spend. Gofers provides a door-to-door service and can usually collect within 30 minutes of the booking being made.

“Our focus is on providing the best service for our customers, and we feel we’re obviously getting something right as we’re continuing to grow and expand,” said Clive.
