April 8, 2013 (FPRC) -- Staff at the firm, which is based in Rayne, were shocked to discover their impressive overnight courier service is not considered an industry standard in a sector of the retail market that should be working harder to ensure the freshness of its stock during transit.
The team at King & Co have always offered their overnight courier service on all items ordered on the web, but were surprised to learn that they are in fact one of the only tree nurseries in the United Kingdom to supply their customers with their trees just one day after the original order is placed.
Orders placed online via the company’s website can be delivered the very next day to locations in England and Wales if placed before twelve noon between Monday and Thursday. Customers in Scotland and Ireland will need to wait just 48 hours before they receive their plants. Orders placed on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday will be delivered the following Tuesday. Alternatively, customers do of course have the option of arranging delivery on a particular date.
“We think it’s extremely important for our customers to receive plants that are ‘nursery fresh’,” explains Paul King, the company’s founder and managing director. “Though we pack our plants carefully to ensure the order arrives safely, we’re fully aware that stock can be easily damaged during transit and want to eliminate the risk of any losses during the delivery process.
“Above all, we are dedicated to working with our customers directly to organise delivery at a time that’s convenient to them. Our staff can accommodate specific requirements on request and will be happy to arrange delivery on a particular day as long as they are notified in advance.”
Orders placed for a larger quantities of trees and plants can be distributed to the customer’s premises via a dedicated vehicle, though the staff at the company recommend getting in touch with them directly to ensure all needs are met, especially with regards to arranging a suitable drop-off point for the items.
King & Co is also happy to arrange local deliveries to Essex and surrounding counties on request. Please contact the team directly on 01376 340469 for further information.
King and Co is the leading supplier of large semi-mature trees, shrubs, screening trees and evergreen trees in Essex. The company’s tree nursery in Rayne boasts over 2000 containerised plants encompassing hundreds of different species.
