Harrowden Turf has launched a “Dropship” service – its second new initiative to support the horticulture sector in as many weeks.
What is Dropship?
The company recognises that many traditional retailers in the sector have been adversely affected by coronavirus restrictions. So, Harrowden Turf will offer its “Dropship” home delivery solution to retailers this week. This enables retailers to continue to service customers via telephone or online orders. These will then be fulfilled directly by Harrowden Turf using its well-established no-contact direct-to-home delivery service.
Stuart Ridd-Jones – Managing Director
“There is currently significant interest in home-improvement projects and the garden is no exception. Harrowden Turf’s “Dropship” service gives retailers the ability to continue to sell turf and other landscape products without holding stock or otherwise being involved in fulfilling that order”
“We have a well-established no-contact direct-to-home delivery service. This can provide an ongoing service to your loyal customers whilst generating some much-needed revenue. This is very straightforward to set up and administer.”
Whilst supporting retailers we would like to reassure you about ordering from Harrowden Turf during the COVID-19 outbreak. Our priority is to keep our people and customers safe. We are following the expert advice of the Government, Public Health England and World Health Organisation. We have made the necessary changes to our business to ensure everyone stays as healthy as possible.
Whilst, nearly all office staff are working remotely from home. The important work that can only be completed at our farms means that some staff are travelling to work as normal but we have adopted strict hygiene and social distancing protocols to protect both them and customers safety.
Our carefully selected delivery partners have introduced “no contact” delivery procedures in order to protect their drivers and our customers as much as possible. We are currently able to operate a normal home delivery service.
