Here at Delphi Steel we like to make sure our customers get the best price and value for money for our industrial steel building kits. High delivery prices are a major issue espeically for those that live in remote areas of Britain, such as the Highlands of Scotland. Unfortunately for some, delivery cost can be a show-stopper. With that in mind we have worked hard to secure alternative delivery options from our suppliers. The result? A significant delivery price cut to remote areas, saving some of our customers in excess of £1000!
Living in remote areas of Britain does have it’s advantages. Many are not only the most remote but also the most beautiful. Often inhabited by people whose families have lived there for generations, others have found it a welcome escape from the rush of modern life. Of course there are disadvantages too. Getting anything to a remote area incurs more cost, and subsequently more cost to the customer. Higher fuel costs combined with the amount of travelling required to get anywhere means people spend much more on getting around. Food brought in has additional travel charges added, so supermarkets, restaurants and cafes a little more expensive than ‘normal’.
However, it is surprising to learn some of the areas of Britain classed as ‘remote’ in terms of delivery and postage costs. This will strike a chord with many who live in and around Inverness in the Highlands, a city of around 70,000 inhabitants. No boat is required to aid your arrival to this city, nor aeorplane, no bridges, causeways or tunnels. It is very much on the mainland, but not (apparently) if you wish to post anything there. Having an Inverness postcode can often mean you are not considered part of mainland Britain. Reports have claimed that this can incurr up 4 times the postage costs.
We can’t resolve all these issues, however our delivery price cut to remote areas is reassance for our customers. If you have a project planned and live in a remote area, get in touch today. We will be happy to discuss how to get your project moving.
