Retail Freight Services to Jersey or Guernsey
We Can Ship Your Retail Stock Between Jersey or Guernsey and the Mainland
Our door-to-store retail service is facilitated by a comprehensive commercial fleet, capable of carrying a wide variety of goods, including both temperature-controlled freight (like food) and ambient consignments (alcoholic drinks, clothes, other retail stock).
We will collect your freight from any location within the UK, ship it to the Islands, and deliver directly to the store/your customer. There is no need to deliver the freight into us – we will fulfil the entire transit quickly and simply, from door to your store. A reverse service is also offered for Island to mainland goods.
What Are Some Benefits of Shipping Your Retail Stock with Profreight?
Our retail service works hand-in-glove with our secure storage facility, and for many retail customers, we hold a significant amount of stock at our Portsmouth depot, for their Jersey and Guernsey stores to call off on a ‘just in time’ basis. This ensures that Island consumers receive a next day delivery service from those retailers storing stock with Profreight – offering our customers a huge commercial advantage over their competition.
Profreight also offer an online shopping delivery service to make delivering to your Jersey and Guernsey customers even easier. Simply send your goods to our secure Portsmouth warehouse, and we’ll take care of the rest. Our speedy door-to-door shipping service will deliver your goods to customers in Jersey or Guernsey, with two-man delivery options for bulky or large items.
What Can You Expect from our Delivery Service for Retailers (Jersey/Guernsey)?
At Profreight, we are dedicated to the fast and efficient shipping of your retail goods from the mainland to Jersey or Guernsey. We understand the importance of shipping your items safely, and take the following measures to ensure that you retail goods arrive in immaculate condition:
Profreight vehicles meet both mainland and Channel Island specifications, so we ship directly to your store or warehouse, with no trans-shipping of goods (minimising the risk of damage during transit)
Your items are blanket-wrapped upon collection to offer additional protection
They are then secured to side rails in our specially designed vehicles. Ratchet straps and other securing mechanisms which could mark or damage your goods are strictly prohibited
All vehicles have a rubber floor, giving your goods a relatively soft but robust and flexible surface on which to sit during transit
We can offer additional insurance to give you total peace of mind that, should the very worst happen, your business is protected
We can provide experienced porters to unload your pallets, parcels and other retail goods, minimising the risk of damage
We will not mix your retail items with other types of general freight
Our specialist demountable vehicles can be hydraulically lowered to the ground, so that your larger retail freight can simply be walked out of the truck and into your store without the need for lifting equipment, avoiding all associated unloading risks
Any overflow or back-up stock can be stored at our secure warehouse facility in Portsmouth to ensure next-day delivery
What Types of Shipping Services Do We Offer Retailers?
All commercial services are offered for both deliveries from the mainland to Jersey and Guernsey, and vice versa (e.g., north and south bound). Service levels provided include next day delivery, specific day or economy delivery and weekend/evening/out of hours’ delivery. In short, we will collect and deliver your goods as, when and where required to meet your exact needs.
