How to Avoid Outdoor Furniture Delivery Issues This Summer

Posted by High Energy Transport on 4 January 2023
How to Avoid Outdoor Furniture Delivery Issues This Summer

Although winter has just started in Canada, smart outdoor furniture companies are already planning their summer season in terms of getting their goods to their customers.

The staycation trend of the past few years is expected to continue in 2023, and consumer spending on backyard improvements and outdoor décor have increased substantially:

  • The overall outdoor furniture market is projected to grow by approximately 6% compounded annually from 2021 to 2027 (Global Market Insights)
  • Online sales of home furnishings in Canada have jumped 190% in the first quarter of 2020 (Statista)
  • The worldwide BBQ market is estimated at US$5.1B (Statista)
  • Deck construction is up 275% and hiring landscapers is up 238% (WFSU)

 

On-Going Supply Chain Issues

There is a continued high consumer demand for outdoor goods such as furniture (tables, dining sets, sofas, chairs, sectionals), BBQ grills, fire tables, heat lamps, etc., as well as deck building materials such as lumber, wood, composites, railings and decorative hardware.

The global supply chain issues we’ve been experiencing for the past few years are still with us and will impact getting these products delivered to consumers, especially when being shipped in from overseas. The overall transportation sector has been hit hard with staff shortages and rising fuel prices, so shipping costs have gone up as well.

 

Final Mile Delivery Challenge: Finding a Reliable Transportation Partner

Whether you’re an outdoor furniture OEM, an online seller, a home décor retailer or even a home improvement or hardware chain, getting your goods delivered to your customers quickly and cost-effectively remains a huge challenge to your business, and one that significantly affects overall customer experience.

You need a transportation partner that can:

  • Pick up your shipment at the Port of Montreal
  • Handle your rail shipments
  • Destuff your containers
  • Warehouse your shipments when required
  • Cross-docking your shipments to save time and costs
  • Transport your products to markets across Canada (e.g. Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver, etc.)
  • Deliver directly to your customers’ homes or business locations

 

High Energy Transport is Your Reliable Transportation Partner

Turn Up the Heat on Your Furnace Installation Business

Posted by High Energy Transport on 2 November 2022
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.

You don’t have to worry about delivering furnaces any more, or to run back and forth to your office to get the furnace for the next install. We’re sure you’ll see an improvement in your efficiency, profit and overall customer satisfaction as you focus on installing furnaces.

Don’t wait: Call High Energy Transport Inc. today

Why? Our experienced staff can handle these bulky furnaces, 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 are perfectly suited to handle your non-conveyables and have done so reliably for many of our clients over the years.

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.

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.

Let High Energy Transport Inc. handle your delivery and warehousing needs for your big and bulky items like mattresses. Focus on serving your customers and keeping them happy.

High Energy Transport Inc. has a centrally-located warehouse in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) that’s easily accessible from most major highways, which means we can quickly deliver those oversized and overweight mattresses to your customers on your behalf with our Final Mile Delivery services, and we offer optional White Glove Services to deliver straight to the bedroom and even remove the old mattresses for you. 

We can help your business more become more efficient by saving you time, effort and money; just give us a call.
