Home Delivery Solutions, founded by Steve and Nicole Taylor in 2009, offers a premier delivery service from the Chesterfield area to anywhere in the UK.
Trusted by B&Q, Screwfix, Homebase, ATT Fabrications, and many other local and national businesses, they specialise in delivering internal and external doors and their fittings, primarily for a well-known wholesaler. They also deliver anything you want to a room of your choice, not just your doorstep.
Four Solutions out of One
Dawsongroup has been providing solutions for HDS for the better part of a decade from four of our business units. Dawsongroup | vans provides 3.5t Luton vans to deliver smaller items directly to customers, whilst 7.5t box trucks from Dawsongroup | truck and trailer deliver larger goods. Also from our truck and trailer business, HDS has 18t curtainside trailers which are specifically fitted out to stand doors upright and ensure they are transported safely and without risk of damage. Dawsongroup | emc provides industrial sweeper-scrubbers at both their Sutton-in-Ashfield and Chesterfield sites, keeping their warehouses clean and maintaining health and safety standards.
Dawsongroup | material handling provides forklift trucks and, working with attachment supplier Hallam Materials Handling, they also provide special appliance clamp attachments. These enable HDS to unload containers efficiently and stack the goods safely in their warehouse. The attachments have extensive opening and closing ranges which accommodate the vast number of differently sized items they process on a daily basis, ensuring all loads are handled efficiently.
Supporting Rapid Growth
With rapid growth of the company over the last eighteen months leading to an expansion of their warehouse facilities at an additional site in Nottingham, Dawsongroup has supported Home Delivery Solutions by providing exactly what they needed to make their container loading and unloading more efficient.
Chris Bland, Transport Maintenance Manager for Home Delivery Solutions, said, “I’ve been a customer of Dawsongroup for more than twenty years, and I knew a relationship with them would benefit Home Delivery Solutions when I joined the company. The forklift trucks with special appliance clamp attachments from Dawsongroup helped improve our manual handling. We can move the products more efficiently, they don’t get damaged, and we make sure that health and safety standards are maintained.”
Sarah Black, Area Sales Executive for Dawsongroup | material handling and account manager for HDS, said, “We carried out multiple site surveys and spent time building up not only the relationship between Dawsongroup and Home Delivery Solutions, but also with their customers, so we could come up with a solution to help HDS achieve their timescales and a safe way of unloading certain items.”
The Right Product
Chris knows from experience that Dawsongroup’s service is always reliable and of a high standard. We keep up to date with the latest technology, such as providing customers with electric forklift trucks which are more economical and greener for both the economy and the environment. With three of their forklift trucks already electric, HDS is in the process of changing the rest of them over as well, and once vans and trucks have the longer range they need for deliveries, we will work together to change those over too.
“As their business has expanded and grown over the last year, Dawsongroup | material handling has supported Home Delivery Solutions by supplying multiple pieces of equipment within exceptionally good lead times,” said Sarah. “Our service and workshop team have also been applauded by HDS for their quick turnaround and amazing work which they carried out to ensure the trucks suit their preferred way of operating.”
“Dawsongroup always looks into what we need and makes sure we get the right product for us, whether that’s material handling equipment, vans, trucks and trailers or sweepers,” said Chris. “At the end of day, we have always got on with Dawsons, and the relationship benefits both of us. As the company continues to grow, I’m sure our relationship will continue to grow as well.”
