It’s getting to the time of year where people across the world get ready to bag some bargains during Black Friday.
Black Friday was originally a US tradition that took place the day after Thanksgiving, but in the last few years, it has made its way across the Atlantic to the UK and Europe. It is when retailers reduce their prices in the run-up to Christmas.
Although shops both online and offline sell goods on Black Friday, the majority of people are now skipping the queues and buying from the comfort of their own homes, with 68% of people doing most of their shopping online, according to the BlackFriday.com website.
In order to keep up with the increased demand from customers and ensure goods get out on time, it is essential that your distribution centre is working smoothly. This is where Pickerings Lifts and our Loading Systems team can help you.
Our team of highly skilled engineers are available to keep your distribution centre working as it should over the Black Friday period, and into the festive season too.
From the Scissor Lifts used to take parcels off high shelves to the Dock Levellers that are used to load parcels onto vehicles, we can help every step of the way.
We are a member of ALEM, CHAS, Constructionline and SAFEcontractor and comply with all relevant European and UK standards, so you know your distribution centre is in safe hands with us.
And don’t forget… we operate a 24 hour, 365 days a year callout service so if your distribution centre stops working, our engineers will be there as soon as possible in order to put things right.
Black Friday takes place this year on 23rd November. Last year savvy shoppers in the UK spent on average of £172 per person over Black Friday (source: PWC)… make sure you aren’t missing out!
