Turn Up the Heat on Your Furnace Installation Business

Turn Up the Heat on Your Furnace Installation Business

Heating season has hit Southern Ontario a few weeks ago, and many homeowners have discovered their old furnace is not so reliable anymore and may be giving uneven heat. Time to get that fixed before winter hits!

Snapshot: HVAC Contractors Market Sizing

The Heating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Contractors market size in Canada is estimated at $14.7bn in 2022 according to IBISWorld, up 3.3% from the year before.

The challenge: running a profitable furnace business

Owning and operating a business that sells and installs furnaces has become more difficult in the past few years due to:

  • Availability of furnaces – worldwide supply chain issues
  • A significant increase in cost of materials – everything has gone up in price
  • Labour shortages – how do you find qualified people willing to work?

Many HVAC businesses have shrunk in sales and in size due to the factors mentioned above, and have had to cut costs as a result. Many are now a 1 or 2 man show driving around from customer to customer, trying to maintain or grow their business and keep customers happy with timely installs.

Time is Money

This old adage is nothing new to Furnace installation contractors, but many don’t really consider the impact of constantly driving back and forth to their office to get the furnace for the next job.

It’s actually quite simple:

The more time you spend driving to get the furnaces and deliver them, the less time you spend installing, and therefore the lower the amount of billing you can generate.

The better way: Have High Energy Transport Inc. deliver your furnaces for you

Let us do what we do best: we’ll make sure all of your customers’ furnaces are delivered on time at their home so you can focus on doing what you do best, which is servicing your clients.

4 Problems to Avoid When Delivering Mattresses

Posted by High Energy Transport on 5 October 2022
4 Problems to Avoid When Delivering Mattresses

We love our mattresses, but sometimes we hate them too… Given that we spend approximately one third of our lives sleeping, it’s no wonder mattresses play such an important role in our well-being. Many of us also love to read or watch TV in bed; some of us have breakfast in bed, and then there’s, well, you know…

As much as a good mattress can improve the quality of everyday life, getting those mattresses delivered to customers quickly and efficiently is key to creating a high customer satisfaction experience.

Canadian Mattress Industry Data

The Canadian mattress and accessories market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 1.7% to reach $27.B in 2024 according to a report available at ResearchAndMarkets.com.

While it is a more modest industry growth, it does present many opportunities for mattress manufacturers and retailers to increase their revenues and their market shares.

 

Here’s our list of the top 4 problems to avoid in your mattress delivery business:

1.      Can’t handle order volume

If you’re relying on 2 guys with a truck to deliver your mattresses to your clients, yes you may be saving some costs in the short term, but can they handle the volume of orders? You may have to deal with multiple “2 guys with a truck” to fulfill your orders, and that actually adds cost to your business as it’s not a scalable business model.

Solution: use a reliable transportation and logistics partner with a fleet of trucks that can handle your order volume. Faster delivery means more revenue and higher customer satisfaction.

Hint: High Energy Transport Inc. (HET) has a fleet of vehicles to handle your order volume.

 

2.    Can’t cover your delivery area

Yes those 2 guys with a truck can deliver your mattresses to many cities and towns, but do they actually cover the entire GTA efficiently? If they have to deliver a memory foam mattress to Oshawa then a spring mattress to Niagara Falls, that’s a lot of time wasted driving, and significantly reduces the number of mattresses that can be delivered in a day.

We know that in this day and age consumers expect next day delivery, and that delivery delays directly impact your all-important Google Reviews.

Solution: use a reliable transportation and logistics partner with a fleet of trucks that can cover the entire GTA. Save time and effort, increase customer satisfaction.

Hint: HET covers the entire GTA with its fleet of vehicles.

 

3.    Improper material handling

Let’s face it: mattresses are big and bulky, they can be quite heavy and cumbersome as well because of their sheer size. Are your delivery partners properly trained to deliver inside a customer’s house – and remove the old mattress – safely and without damaging the customer’s home?

Solution: make sure your delivery service has properly trained staff to avoid damage and injuries, which saves time and reduces shipping costs.

Hint: HET has professionally-trained staff and follow all the applicable health and safety protocols; and that includes good customer manners as well.

 

4.   No inventory management

Can your mattress delivery partner take inventory off your hands and manage it for you? Or do they have to constantly run back to your warehouse?

Solution: use a reliable transportation and logistics partner that has a warehouse and that can handle some of your inventory for you, reducing your costs and improving your delivery times.

Hint: HET has a centrally-located warehouse and we can direct ship to your clients for you.

 

High Energy Transport Inc. can help you drive cost out of your mattress delivery needs.

Need to get Gym Equipment to Your Customers? No Problem!

Posted by High Energy Transport on 7 September 2022
Need to get Gym Equipment to Your Customers? No Problem!

As summer is shining its last rays on us, many consumers will turn their attention to indoor activities to stay fit and healthy throughout fall and winter.

Remember that Peloton craze a few years back? How about that Bowflex or NordicTrack? Whether it’s treadmills, ellipticals or rowing machines, something that’s sure is there will always be a big demand for home gym equipment, and there will always be that next must-have piece of home gym equipment no serious fitness buff should be without.

Fortune Business Insights stated that the global market size for home fitness equipment was US$ 10.18 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach US$14.74 billion by 2028, which means lots of growth opportunities for you and your business.

 

How do I ship home fitness equipment to my clients?

As a retailer, you’ve received many orders from your clients for indoor gym equipment, but how do you get those items delivered to their homes?

As a fitness equipment manufacturer, you may be selling online to clients all across Canada, but how do you deliver those orders to your biggest market in the Greater Toronto Area?

Home fitness equipment is big, bulky and heavy, and requires special handling, warehousing and shipping. These items aren’t easily handled by automated conveyor systems, and they must be safely manually handled by your warehouse staff. The potential risk of injury can be high if they aren’t trained well or think they can handle more than they actually can. Injured employees hurt your productivity and can result in delivery delays and decreased customer satisfaction overall.

 

Let a trusted partner handle your delivery needs for you: High Energy Transport Inc.

Let High Energy Transport Inc. handle your delivery and warehousing needs for your big and bulky items; allowing you to focus on your core business of serving your customers and keeping them happy.

The Best Way to Deliver Sheds to Your Customers

Posted by High Energy Transport on 3 August 2022
The Best Way to Deliver Sheds to Your Customers

 

With summer in full swing, many homeowners have been as busy as bees in their gardens planting petunias and begonias, or maybe tomatoes and jalapeno peppers. Many home gardeners have purchased new gardening tools to till the soil, plant new seeds and reap their harvests.

With all those gardening tools comes the challenge of where to store everything in a neat and orderly manner? The garage is an obvious answer, but many homes don’t have one or only have a carport. Sometimes our garages are packed full of our stuff and it’s hard to get easy access to what we’re looking for.

The shed is a staple of many residential and commercial properties, and is an excellent way to store all the gardening paraphernalia. Many homeowners have ordered new sheds to replace the old one, and some even have purchased mini greenhouses to house their vegetables and flowers.

The global market for outdoor sheds is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2021 to 2028 – from USD$6.6B to USD$9.6B – according to a report from The Insight Partners.

 

How best to deliver sheds to your clients?

If you’re a retailer or distributor, you’re painfully aware that sheds are bulky and overweight items that aren’t easily handled by automated conveyor systems, and they must be manually handled by your warehouse staff. That ties up your staff and prevents them from performing more efficient tasks, and also exposes them to the risk of injury if the sheds aren’t handled properly or if something happens in the process.

 

Let a trusted partner handle your sheds for you: High Energy Transport Inc.

Focus on your core business of selling products and servicing your customers with your automated conveyor systems, but let High Energy Transport Inc. handle your bulky non-conveyables like sheds for you.

We have a centrally-located warehouse in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) that’s easily accessible from most major highways, which means those oversized sheds don’t even need to go in and out of your facilities, which saves you time, effort and money. Talk about efficiency!

Our qualified staff has both the expertise and the experience to handle non-conveyables, and we’ll deliver directly to your customers on your behalf with our Final Mile Delivery services. We want to become part of your team, and be your delivery mechanism to make your business more efficient.

 

Contact Us Today

If we haven’t already convinced you that we’re the best partner to deliver your non-conveyables, contact us today and we’ll show you how we can help improve your delivery business.

We’re sure you’ll see an improvement in your efficiency, profit and overall customer satisfaction as you focus on doing what you do best: servicing your clients.

What Not To Do When Delivering Hot Water Tanks

Posted by High Energy Transport on 6 July 2022
What Not To Do When Delivering Hot Water Tanks

If you own or operate a business that sells and repairs hot water tanks, tankless water heaters or water softeners, you’re probably wondering:

  • How do I get more business?
  • How do I become more efficient?
  • How to do I become even more profitable?

In this article, we’ll tell you what NOT to do to improve your business.

 

Snapshot: Residential Water Heater Market

The North American residential water heater market is forecasted to grow from USD $2.7B in 2020 to USD $3.2B in 2027, according to Global Market Insights. The Canadian market for its part is expected to grow at a rate of over 3% annually over that same time period, thanks to an increased adoption of advanced technologies such as leakage detection, Wi-Fi and remote monitoring.

 

THINGS NOT TO DO – if you want to improve your bottom line

Driving your tanks around

Let’s face it, there is so much time wasted by loading the water heaters and water softeners into your truck, driving to the customer location and then unloading everything. Of course you still need to drive to get to the customer site, but do you really need to be driving around with all that extra weight especially considering the price of gas these days?

Wouldn’t it be better if the water heater or softener would already be on site when you get there? How much more efficient would that be?

 

Running back to a warehouse

Hot water tanks and water softeners are big, bulky units, and we’d be surprised if you can fit in more than one at a time in your truck. This means of course that you need to drive back to a central warehouse location to get the next unit for the next job. Ah, that driving around nonsense again!  And did we mention the price of gas? Tsk, tsk, tsk… it eats at your profit margin.

Just imagine if you could drive directly from one client location to another, and how much time and fuel that would save? And forget about that traffic hassle!

 

Owning a warehouse or renting storage space

Most businesses will want to have some sort of warehouse or storage facility for all the units, equipment, spare parts, tools, etc. That might give you access to the parts, but at what cost? Inventory costs money and often goes out of date, which means it needs to be replaced with newer equipment, costing even more money. Space costs money in terms of mortgage, utilities, insurance, etc. Then there’s the staff factor: having to pay employees to load, unload and handle the material as it transits between your suppliers and your technicians.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could offload all those costs and management headaches to a reliable partner instead?

 

WHAT TO DO – if you want to improve your efficiency and your profit

Service your customers and clients

The way you’re going to increase your efficiency and your profit, is by having your technicians do what they do best: service the customer. Whether it’s a brand new tankless water heater installation, a repair on a water softener or a scheduled annual maintenance call, your technicians are experts at installing, repairing and servicing those units, so let them do their job! The work will get done better and faster, and your customer will be happier – which means more positive reviews for your company and more referral business coming your way.

 

Call High Energy Transport Inc.

Why? Let us handle getting the water heaters and water softeners to your customers for you. Our experienced staff can handle these bulky items, and we can easily accommodate your inventory from our centrally-located warehouse as it transits to your job sites with our Final Mile Delivery services.

We’re sure you’ll see an improvement in your efficiency, profit and overall customer satisfaction as you focus on doing what you do best: servicing your clients.

 

We treat and value every single customer as if they were our very first client.

We are here and willing to help you and your business in any way we can; please rest assured that your shipments are in good hands with us. Please contact us for a quote.
