Tuffnells achieves record Christmas tree deliveries

Tuffnells achieves record Christmas tree deliveries

As the festive season approaches, leading business to business distribution specialist, Tuffnells Parcels Express, is expecting another record year for Christmas tree deliveries.

With predictions of over 10,000 festive deliveries expected this year, the team are already experiencing another busy Christmas period as demand exceeds last year’s figure of 7,000.

Over the years, Tuffnells has helped bring Christmas to thousands of businesses and homes across the UK with its specialist Christmas tree shipping service.

Commenting on this years’ service, Sally Stenton, director of The Billingley Christmas Tree Farm in Barnsley, who has been a Tuffnells customer for over five years, said: “Over the years, we’ve noticed more and more businesses in the major city centres choosing to use Tuffnells’ delivery service. By using Tuffnells it removes the need to cart a big, heavy and awkward tree on London’s underground system, or through Leeds’ busy city centre. Instead, our customers can have the peace of mind to know that their tree will arrive right at their door at a time and day that suits them.

“It’s already an exceptionally busy year for us this winter with approximately 500 orders expected. We’ve used Tuffnells for many years now and their ability to tackle the delivery of such large items with ease, coupled with their reliability, great communication and customer service, has made them the perfect choice for making our customers’ Christmas extra special year after year.” 

Elaine Keep, marketing manager at Tuffnells Parcels Express, added: “For many, nothing kick-starts the season’s festivities quite like the smell of a fresh Christmas tree. In recent years, we’ve noticed an increase in the number of trees we’re delivering as more people opt for these traditional options over artificial alternatives.

“At Tuffnells, we pride ourselves on having the ability to deliver those parcels that might prove too tricky, large or cumbersome for other delivery services. We’re pleased to be able to bring Christmas to so many homes and businesses over the years by offering an efficient and convenient service, and we’re looking forward to what is set to be another great Christmas.”

Tuffnells Parcels Express, specialises in the handling of a diverse range of parcels and consignments that are unusual shapes and lengths.
