Click and collect

IronmongeryDirect has launched a new click and collect service for its range of 18,000 in-stock products.

Customers can order their products as usual from architectural ironmongery, seals, sealants and adhesives, as well as fire protection products, and select the click and collect option at the checkout.

Orders will then be delivered to a convenient network of local pick-up points the next day when ordered before 8pm. These pick-up points include branches of stores such as Sainsburys, Matalan, Homebase, Currys PC World, Rowlands Pharmacy and select local convenience shops.

There is a pick-up location within a 10-minute drive of 90% of the UK population.

The IronmongeryDirect click and collect service is free on orders over £45+VAT, or £3.95 on orders under £45+VAT, compared to £5.95 for standard delivery on orders under £45+VAT.

It is offered in addition to the current delivery options. Customers are able to choose click and collect delivery via the website or when ordering by phone.

Tom Ramshaw, director and head of operations at IronmongeryDirect, said: “For trade professionals, waiting at busy trade counters for products and missing deliveries can cause delays on jobs and frustrations for customers. By offering the opportunity to choose a location that’s convenient, we are making it easier for customers to get the products they need exactly when and where they are needed. And fast.

“We plan to implement further delivery options in 2020, adding thousands of additional pick-up locations, giving even more choice to customers.”
