Screwfix is to launch a rapid delivery service called screwfix sprint that will deliver orders direct to site within 60 minutes.
Following a successful trial, Screwfix will begin to roll-out the service, which will “meet the growing demand for speed and convenience from Britain’s tradespeople and DIY customers”.
The latest delivery proposition will mean customers who need urgent supplies when on a job “can order and receive their essentials within 1 hour, without losing time by leaving the site”.
It is estimated that by November more than 30 cities across the UK are set to benefit from the service. London, Birmingham and Glasgow are among the cities included, meaning that the service will be available across 34% of UK postcodes, with further rollout planned next year.
John Mewett, CEO of Screwfix, said: “We understand how busy the nation’s tradespeople are and we are always looking for ways to provide our customers with even greater convenience, meaning they can get what they need, when they need it.
“Our 1 minute Click and Collect service is already hugely popular and the trial of Screwfix Sprint across Bristol showed how, in addition tradespeople value 1 hour delivery to where they are working. For many, time is money and this means not having to leave the site to collect a part, tool or other key essential needed for the job.”
