Why it’s always a good idea to have a backup sameday courier service

Category : News

It may be fair to say that you are happy with your current same day courier supplier, but it is always handy having a backup number to call incase they can’t help you out for whatever reason. In today’s current climate, it goes without saying that keeping your customers happy and providing the best possible service you can is paramount to succeeding in business and gaining repeat custom.

Here at L12 Couriers, we hear on many occasions from new customers that their current supplier had let them down, didn’t have vehicles available or simply couldn’t work within their timescales. Although their current or regular sameday service provider may have been having an ‘off’ day, it happens. However you still need to keep your customers happy and get their orders collected and delivered when they want them. That’s why we always recommend having a backup number to ring in the event of an emergency. Time spent looking through the search engines, business pages and local papers is time wasted and could prove costly.

If you’d like to add our number to your contacts list, it is 0845 83 87 012 during office hours. We also have a mobile number for those out of office hours calls – 07545 117 288. We are able to collect from anywhere in the UK, usually within the hour, using locally vetted couriers. We can source vehicles from motorbikes up to 7.5t wagons with larger vehicles are available on request. Our prices are very competitive with our small van charge starting at £1 per loaded mile (min £45). We are available for regular collections, urgent one off jobs or ongoing contract work. We are specialist medical couriers and collect from private clinics, hospitals, premiership football clubs and other clinical institutions throughout the UK on a daily basis. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

A record £6 million is expected to be spent at Liverpool ONE in the first weekend of sale shopping starting, Boxing Day. These figures, which represent a 16% increase compared to the same period last year, will make it the most successful Boxing Day since the retail and leisure complex opened in 2008. More than 50% will be spent on clothing and footwear and a further £220k will be spent on toys – in one day alone.

With almost one million people expected to visit between now and early January, Liverpool ONE is set to maintain a healthy 5% increase in visitor numbers compared to the same time last year. Gift card sales have grown by 16% with almost £1,000,000 sold for Christmas alone – much of which will be spent in the New Year. Liverpool ONE has enjoyed a large number of individual successes during the year too, with more than 20 new stores launching, including many higher end retailers, such as Michael Kors at Peter’s Lane. Ted Baker London and Coast have both up-sized to larger stores and Zara chose Liverpool ONE as the destination for its North West flagship store. Toys R Us and the Samsung Experience Store have also opened.

Estate director at Liverpool ONE, Chris Bliss, said: “We are delighted with this continuing success at Liverpool ONE. “We experienced a very strong first half of the year and this trend has continued right through Christmas. “These are significant increases when we look at the same period last year and we are confident growth will continue into 2015.“ “We put a large amount of our great success story down to shoppers not just visiting simply to enjoy the fantastic and varied offer from our retailers but coming for the whole Liverpool ONE experience.

“Our restaurant offer has increased this year with new names including Cote, Tortilla, Bill’s, Ed’s Diner and Manzo driving a growth in restaurant sales of 8% and firmly establishing Liverpool ONE as the number one leisure destination for the north. “The success of Liverpool ONE’s offer throughout the year, including the popular Ice Festival which is here until January 4th, affirm Liverpool ONE’s stance as a unique destination to both shop and enjoy quality time with friends and family and these are all factors in our great success story.“
