Many of the UK’s largest organizations grew from small beginnings.
Strictly Beds & Bunks started from such humble begins. The firm first started trading supplying Hotels with all their bedding requirements. Our statement is “Why wait” and our mission is to get your order booked in for delivery at the time order. That way you knew when the delivery day is. This is within days from ordering, how refreshing.
The Director brought five beds and stored them in a domestic garage.
A very small one line advert was placed in the local paper supplying a mobile number for sales. The firm then did not have a van so the Director “borrowed” a van from his builder mate when ever a delivery was required. At the time we were delivering around THREE beds a week.
We have now moved to a larger 10,000 sqft industrial unit and is now growing at a pace.
Our warehouse is used for additional stock. Thanks to its regular client base we now complete over FIFTEEN THOUSAND deliveries a year. With over THREE THOUSAND people visiting our website a day we are set to grow and gro.
We need more vehicles !
Given the volume of our orders we now increased our fleet of vehicles, our policy to move away from nationwide carrriers was proving a success.
