The new cut-off time allows customers an extra hour to purchase what they need, further supporting tradespeople who need large orders in a short space of time. Customers placing orders over £45 ex VAT are also entitled to free next day delivery.
This added benefit for customers follows several recent announcements regarding the retailer’s expanded delivery offering. Same day delivery was launched for customers within the Southend-on-Sea, Chelmsford and Romford areas, and has now been extended to include IG, & E postcodes, with further areas to be included in the near future. For urgently needed goods, customers can order by midday Monday-Friday, with orders arriving by 4pm that day.
In addition, the company has extended its Click & Collect network to include over 6,000 pick-up points nationwide, including Sainsburys, Matalan, and Homebase. Simply order online, select Click & Collect at checkout and your goods will be delivered within five miles of your home or workplace.
Marco Verdonkschot, Managing Director at IronmongeryDirect and ElectricalDirect says, “We recognise that, especially over the last year, customer requirements are consistently evolving to meet the changes and challenges within the industry. As a specialist supplier, we want to guarantee tradespeople have what they need, exactly when they need it, so they can continue to work and deliver projects as efficiently as possible.
“We have made several improvements to our delivery services over the past few months and as part of this, we are pleased to be able to extend our online next-day delivery option to meet our customers working hours or schedules that could change at a moment’s notice.
“We will continue to take our customers feedback on-board and make the necessary changes to support the industry.”
