Simplifying Outdoor Furniture Delivery to Your Customers

Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. For many Canadians this means spending as much time as possible outdoors in their backyards, on their decks and porches, or at the cottage.

With the pandemic restrictions of the past 2 years and people spending more time at home, consumers have been shifting their attention to improving their outdoor spaces to make them more comfortable and more aesthetically pleasing with outdoor furniture items such as:

  • Outdoor lounge furniture: sofas, chairs, sectionals, ottomans, stools
  • Outdoor dining furniture: tables & chairs, dining sets
  • Outdoor accessories: furniture covers, umbrellas, cushions, planters, rugs
  • Outdoor ambiance: fire pits, fire tables, outdoor heaters, outdoor lighting

As a result, the demand for outdoor furniture and accessories has skyrocketed. Market research firm Global Market Insights is projecting the overall outdoor furniture market to grow by approximately 6% compounded annually from 2021 to 2027.

Online sales of home furnishings in Canada have also jumped 190% in the first quarter of 2020, according to Statista, which also stated that homeware and furniture sales accounted for 10.6% of all the e-commerce sales in Canada.

Growth & Customer Delivery Issues

This tremendous demand coupled with the supply chain issues we’ve all been dealing with – from material availability to transportation – means that there have been significant delays in getting customer orders fulfilled in a timely fashion.

And even once the items are available, delivering such large and bulky items to consumers represents a challenge for many furniture stores, retailers and wholesalers in the Greater Toronto Area, and indeed across all of Canada.

Even online retailers have struggled with delivery of outdoor furniture as these items tend to be much larger than regular consumer products and don’t fit neatly in most automated conveyor systems used in sorting facilities and warehouses across the globe.

How to deliver outdoor furniture quickly and efficiently to your customers?

As a retailer, a Third Party Logistics (3PL) organization or an OEM manufacturer that needs to ship directly to your clients, there are a few things you should consider to provide a great delivery experience to your customers in the most cost-efficient and timely manner possible.

How to handle non-conveyables

Start by separating your non-conveyables – those large and bulky items that don’t fit into standard-sized boxes that can be efficiently handled by automated conveyor systems – as a different workflow stream.

Let a trusted partner handle your non-conveyables

Trusted third party storage and warehousing partners can handle your non-conveyables for you, improving your efficiency and saving space. These bulky outdoor furniture items don’t need to hit your warehouse and tie up your staff’s time and efforts as they switch between conveyables and non-conveyables.

This is where High Energy Transport comes in: our staff has the expertise and the experience to handle these bulky and sometimes fragile items, and our centrally-located warehouse can easily accommodate your inventory as it transits to your customers.

Work with a reliable Final Mile partner

High Energy Transport specializes in heavyweight and bulky oversized shipments that others can’t easily deliver with our Final Mile Delivery services. For example, we have safely delivered approximately 50,000 large screen TVs over the past 5 years – claim free.

Getting Your Non-Conveyables Out the Door

Posted by High Energy Transport on 2 March 2022
Getting Your Non-Conveyables Out the Door

It would be an understatement to say that online sales have exploded over the past 2 years. Indeed, the CBC reported that online sales in Canada have almost doubled in that timeframe , and that U.S. consumers spent a record $204 billion online this past holiday season, according to the Adobe Digital Economy Index.

Whether you’re an E-commerce retailer or a more traditional retailer that had to beef up your online presence, or whether you’re a transportation provider or courier, you’ve all experienced this tremendous growth in online sales.

 

Sales of Non-Conveyables Increase

It’s not just the online sales of toys, electronics and apparel that has gone up as we all know, it’s also the sale of larger items. Online sales for exercise equipment such as stationary bikes, treadmills, and weights jumped 55% early on in the pandemic, according to the Adobe Digital Economy Index.

Online sales of home furnishings in Canada have also jumped 190% in the first quarter of 2020, according to Statista, which also stated that homeware and furniture sales accounted for 10.6% of all the e-commerce sales in Canada.

The jump in e-commerce sales of non-conveyables has disrupted many retail and delivery organizations.

 

What are Non-Conveyables?

Non-conveyables are items that are either too large, too bulky, too heavy – or too small – to be handled by conveyor systems used in sorting facilities. Not all products sold fit neatly into a regular sized box, and those items create major pain points for businesses that have to move these products quickly and efficiently to customers.

 

Consumers are More Demanding Than Ever

A happy customer becomes a repeat customer. We all want to keep our customers happy by providing great shopping and delivery experiences, so that they keep purchasing from us, give us good reviews and recommend our products and services to others.

But consumers are more demanding than ever. One week delivery? Too slow. What, no free delivery? Not acceptable. We’ve all gotten used to free next day delivery and that trend is not going away anytime soon. This creates significant headaches – and additional costs to retailers, especially when it comes to large bulky items.

 

Delivering large, oversized and bulky items for retailers and 3PL companies

This is where High Energy Transport comes in with its Final Mile Delivery services: we specialize in heavyweight and bulky oversized shipments that others can’t easily deliver. For example, we have safely delivered approximately 50,000 large screen TVs over the past 5 years – claim free.

Delivering 50,000 Large Screen TVs – Claim Free

Posted by High Energy Transport on 2 February 2022
Delivering 50,000 Large Screen TVs – Claim Free

 

“We got to move these refrigerators, we got to move these color TVs”

– Money for Nothing; Dire Straits, 1985

 

Ever since the invention of Television, consumers have been glued to their TV sets enjoying their favourite comedy, drama or news program. And even though other devices have crept into our daily lives – such as smartphones, tablets and laptops – for many consumers television remains the medium of choice to relax at the end of the day, to get their news from or to watch the big game on.

4K & 8K UHD Large Screen TV Sales on the Rise

The sales of television sets were estimated at 215 million units globally in 2021 according to Statista, and that number has been relatively stable over the past 7 years. In North America, 75% of TVs shipped in 2021 were 4K UHD, with a notable increase in the 70-inches and higher segment. In 2022, 8K UHD sets are expected to grow significantly, according to the Consumer Technology Association (CTA).

How To Ship Large Screen TVs To Consumers?

Shipping these very large TV screens to consumers has been a logistical challenge for both brick-and-mortar and online retailers alike, as well as for OEM electronics manufacturers:

  • How much space do I need to store them?
  • Can my staff safely handle such large and heavy boxes?
  • Is my staff able to handle bulky and fragile electronics?
  • What’s the most cost-effective way to deliver to consumers?
  • How do I deal with returns?

The sheer size and weight of the boxes coupled with the fragile nature of the electronics inside means that not every transportation or 3PL company can efficiently deliver these prized items to their purchasers without experiencing problems.

This is where High Energy Transport comes in with its Final Mile Delivery services: we have safely delivered approximately 50,000 large screen TVs over the past 5 years – claim free. Our staff has the expertise and the experience to handle these bulky fragile items, and our centrally-located warehouse can easily accommodate your inventory as it transits to your customers.

Delivering large, oversized and bulky items for retailers and manufacturers

We specialize in heavyweight and oversized shipments that others can’t easily deliver. Whether you are a Third Party Logistics (3PL) organization or an OEM manufacturer that needs to ship directly to your clients, please rest assured that your shipments are in good hands with us.

We have a 24-hour sorting facility in the Greater Toronto Area and can get your shipment out for delivery the very next day on most days.

Don’t know what to do with old office furniture?

Posted by High Energy Transport on 5 January 2022
Don’t know what to do with old office furniture?

As we head into the New Year, many business owners and office managers may be thinking about where their business will be in 2022. Thoughts about growth and expansion, refocusing and streamlining, or even rationalizing and downsizing are in order. The pandemic has definitely taught us that we need to be adaptable and flexible – pivoting as required - in order to be resilient and survive in a challenging business environment.

A change in your business environment may mean an office move to a larger or smaller location. Whatever the reason for your commercial move may be, it is a great opportunity to freshen up or upgrade your office furniture.

What do you do with the old office furniture you don’t want or need anymore?

Every office has some older office furniture that is broken or needs to be repaired. You know that back room that serves as an office chair cemetery? Yes, we’re talking about that room where all the unwanted, no longer needed, damaged furniture or office equipment ends up in. That room that no one goes in at night where the old computer cables seem to move on their own…

Moving your office is the perfect opportunity to clear out that room: out with the old and in with the new! But what to do with all those unwanted items?

Ways to Dispose of Unwanted Office Furniture and Equipment

These days, it’s all about the 3Rs – Reuse, Reduce, Recycle – so just bringing old office equipment to the dump should be a last resort solution. There are many ways you can dispose of your unwanted equipment and old office furniture, and maybe help others and the environment at the same time too.

Donate to Charity

Unwanted office furniture that is still in good condition can be donated to a charity or a not-for-profit organization. That way you can help others and get a tax credit for a charitable donation at the same time. It also avoids sending things to the dump. It’s a win-win-win!

Refurbishing

Some unwanted office furniture may be a bit damaged or have broken parts. There are a number of businesses that offer refurbishing services to bring the furniture back into top shape and then resell it at competitive prices. Your old office partitions may be reused by another company looking to expand their office, extending their useful life. It can also contribute to LEED credits for those trying to achieve LEED certification.

In the case of office equipment and electronics, there are businesses that can repair and refurbish, or break down and recycle all or most of the equipment and components. Your local municipality may also be able to collect your electronics and office machines, sometimes even at no cost to you.

Selling

If the unwanted items are still in good shape and are still usable, consider selling them online on Kijiji or through an auction. You get a bit of money back to help with moving your office, and the items don’t end up as waste at the dump.

Let High Energy Transport Dispose of Unwanted Office Furniture and Equipment

Whichever way you choose to deal with your used office furniture, High Energy Transport should be your obvious choice for your next commercial move. We can help you clean out the office clutter, provide you with a seamless office move and set you up in your new facility in no time with as little stress as possible.

Our uniformed installation teams are trained to carry out their work in a professional manner and are always respectful of their host environment.
