Harrowden Turf has launched a new initiative to support the horticulture sector.
The company recognises that many traditional retailers in the sector have been adversely affected by coronavirus restrictions. Harrowden Turf is offering its “Dropship” or home delivery solution which enables retailers to continue to service customers via telephone or online orders which will be fulfilled directly by Harrowden Turf using its well-established no-contact direct to home delivery service.
Stuart Ridd-Jones, Harrowden Turf's Managing Director:
“There is currently significant interest in home-improvement projects and with the improved recent weather 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 which can enable you to continue to provide ongoing service to your loyal customers whilst generating some much-needed revenue. This is very straightforward to set up and administer.”
We can reassure you about ordering from Harrowden Turf during the COVID-19 outbreak. As a business, our priority above all, is to keep our people and customers safe and we are following the expert advice of the Government, Public Health England and World Health Organisation to make the necessary changes to our business to ensure everyone stays as healthy as possible.
Nearly all office staff are working remotely from home but 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.
