COTSWOLD DELIVERY COMPANY
So can one pricing be great for all van bookings?
Yes because our company uses a combination of mileage and time for a fair yet transparent pricing
1 - Driving Rate
We use a mileage rate when our driver is on the road so if there is traffic slowing them down your price will not change.
2 - Loading & Unloading Rate
We use a time rate when our driver is at your address so we charge only for the loading time used.
Which van booking type is best?
Only flexible bookings booked on a weekend will incur overtime rates.
(We choose the time slot for you so if your flexible booking uses any weekday overtime hours we will not charge any overtime.)
Any time used on a weekday during overtime or on a weekend will incur overtime rates.
(Unfortunately, unforeseen circumstances on the road can arise so we cannot guarantee time. But we will not charge the fixed booking fee if the driver is over 30 minutes late.)
Do you want the rubbish gone?
● If you need a clearance we can collect and dispose a whole van load of unwanted items. Just look at our pricing below for disposal costs.
● Or if you need a new item of furniture delivered we can unwrap and dispose the packaging for you.
Is the booking too much for one driver?
If your item is too heavy or the job is just too large for just one driver, we can supply an extra driver just add one or even two during the booking.
Our drivers may be strong however please keep in mind we do not expect them to carry items over 30kg solo.
