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.

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.

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.

Increase Your HVAC Profit with High Energy Transport Inc.

Posted by High Energy Transport on 1 June 2022
Increase Your HVAC Profit with High Energy Transport Inc.

Summer’s not officially here yet, but in Ontario and many parts of Canada we’ve already had our first heat wave of the season in May, with temperatures feeling like 34°C the week before Victoria Day weekend. Definitely time to crank up the AC!

Many of us have unfortunately discovered that the home Air Conditioning unit is on the fritz and is not delivering that cool relief we need to cope with the heat of the summer.

The Heating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) service market size in Canada is estimated at $12.9bn in 2022 according to IBISWorld, up 4.7% from the year before.

HVAC Supply Chain & Labour Challenges

The market size is great news if you provide HVAC installation and repair services to consumers and businesses, but as with all industry sectors, HVAC has also been hit with serious supply chain and labour issues:

  • Units are hard to come by and have to be ordered well ahead of time
  • Skilled tradespeople have been difficult to find, as many have retired, stayed home to help with the kids or stopped working altogether, and there are not enough young trades coming up to replace them

But even when you have the qualified staff and the HVAC units, getting them to your client in time can pose logistical problems for you and your technicians:

  • The units are big, bulky and heavy, and take up a lot of space in the service vehicles. This means unnecessary multiple trips to the warehouse to get the units, and that wastes time, money and effort. It’s impacting your bottom line.
  • Your technicians’ time is wasted driving around instead of installing and repairing units – again a negative impact on your sales and profit
  • The units are taking up space which could be used to store additional repair parts instead, allowing your service technicians to perform more repairs for more clients faster

 

The Solution: use High Energy Transport Inc. to drop ship the HVAC units directly to your customer’s location

HET has the experienced staff with the expertise to handle these bulky and cumbersome items, and our centrally-located warehouse can easily accommodate your inventory as it transits to your customers.

Let us handle getting the HVAC units to your clients for you, and 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.

High Energy Transport specializes in heavyweight and bulky oversized shipments that others can’t easily deliver with our Final Mile Delivery services. We are perfectly suited to handle your non-conveyables and have done so reliably for many of our clients over the years.

 

Providing Exceptional Service to You and Your Customers

At High Energy Transport Inc., we treat and value every single customer as if they were our very first client.

Streamlining your BBQ Delivery Process

Posted by High Energy Transport on 4 May 2022
Streamlining your BBQ Delivery Process

 

Victoria Day marks the unofficial start of summer in Canada, and weather permitting, the start of the BBQ season. Nothing beats the taste of meat and vegetables roasted to perfection on the grill, and it’s even better when shared with family and friends. Canadians just love spending time outdoors at home in their backyards or at the cottage.

Outdoor Home Improvement Boom

Over the past few years with the pandemic and people spending more time at home, consumer spending on backyard improvements in North America has jumped up significantly. According to a WFSU article, deck construction is up 275% and hiring landscapers is up 238%. Following suit, the barbecue grill market value is estimated at US$5.1B worldwide according to Statista.

Outdoor Appliances Supply Chain Issues

High consumer demand for BBQ grills - and outdoor appliances like fire tables and heat lamps - coupled with global supply chain issues means there have been significantly delays in getting these products delivered to consumers.

Customer Order Delivery Challenges

While struggling with those issues, retailers and distributors have also had to deal with the complexity and cost of reliably getting these orders delivered to their customers. Supply chain issues have also hit the transportation sector hard with staff shortages and rising fuel prices, so shipping costs have gone up as well.

For larger shipments, it’s a common practice for distributors and retailers to get multiple shipping quotes from different transportation companies, and then to figure out what’s the best match for which shipment at that particular point in time. While this may appear to be saving you shipping costs upfront, you may be wasting more staff time managing the whole process and it likely ends up costing you more in the long run.

Pick a Reliable Shipping Partner

We recommend picking 1 or 2 solid transportation partners that can deliver your orders to your clients quickly, efficiently and as cost-effectively as possible.  Building a strong relationship with these partners will be more beneficial cost-wise and better for your customer experience in the long run, rather than chasing after the next penny in your shipping dock.

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. We are perfectly suited to handle your non-conveyables and have done so reliably for many of our clients over the years.

Our experienced staff has the expertise to handle these bulky and cumbersome items, and our centrally-located warehouse can easily accommodate your inventory as it transits to your customers.

Providing Exceptional Service to You and Your Customers

At High Energy Transport Inc., we treat and value every single customer as if they were our very first client, which is why we are rated so highly with not only with our customers but with our clients’ customers as well.
