As our car hire delivery and collection service continues to grow, we recently conducted research into the delivery habits of UK consumers and found that British consumers are becoming more demanding than ever.
Topping Brits wish list of most desirable delivery items are a cooked English breakfast following a night on the tiles, freshly brewed high street coffee to kick-start the working week, fish and chips from the local chippy, alcohol post closing time and a cooked Sunday roast. Not forgetting emergency supplies such as toilet rolls, petrol for when the nearest filling station is out of reach, plus shoe repair, laundry and dry cleaning.
We’re spending and ordering more than ever before
So dependent as a nation have we become on direct delivery services , that we are now ordering a staggering 1.5 billion deliveries a year at a cost of £16.8 billion – that’s an average of 30 deliveries per person, totalling £342.
We’re becoming more demanding
Three quarters (73%) now expect a delivery service as standard when purchasing goods, three out of four (75%) would like companies to offer a courier collection service for unwanted items and a massive 89% would consider switching supplier if they didn’t offer direct delivery.
Delivery just to the home is also no longer enough, with 78% expecting to be able to receive goods to their place of work or other addresses. Over half (58%) also admit that even next day delivery offers limited flexibility for busy schedules with 63% keen to see same day delivery more readily available.
Our research clearly demonstrates the popularity of delivery services. Car hire is just one example of a delivery service which has cropped up to meet time poor customers and
Avis Delivers gives those customers the flexibility to have a car delivered and collected for just £10 each way, wherever they are.
