City Link Demise and Our Customer Deliveries
On Christmas Day it was very sad to hear of the demise of the UK delivery company, City Link.
We were particularly concerned for our daily collection driver and the other self employed or ‘franchised’ drivers or operators. Although all job losses are a personal tragedy, you always feel for the driver with whom you have personal contact, especially if they have invested their own money into a franchise with a leased liveried vehicle.
Although City-Link provided the majority of our deliveries of customer orders, we’re relieved to be able to report that as as far as we are aware, there are no outstanding deliveries. Fortunately, all orders placed prior to Christmas Eve were dispatched, either on-time or early, ensuring delivery on or before the Christmas Eve failure of City Link.
In terms of furniture deliveries, this week we have used ad hoc delivery services, to ensure uninterrupted deliveries between Christmas and New Year. From the 5th of January, we have been able to acquire a new delivery service supplier, hence we will once again be able to supply on-line tracking details, as was the case with City-Link.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the individual delivery drivers from the now defunct City-Link, as over the last few years, our experience of their delivery services have been very positive.
