Large Format Print Courier
We were recently contacted by a customer who needed a large format print courier for an ‘out of hours’ delivery; we explained there is no such thing with A-B 24/7 as we are available around the clock, seven days a week. He needed boxes of large format graphics, just over 3 meters in length collected from the Principal Hotel (8 Russell Square, Bloomsbury, London WC1B 5BE) and delivered directly to the printers in Watford, Hertfordshire by 7 pm. We were excited by the prospect of visiting the recently refurbished Principal hotel, (formally Hotel Russell), which reportedly cost £85million and took over a year to complete.
Our Wimbledon, despatch team organised a collection time at the hotel to allow for enough time to make the journey out to Watford to make the 7 pm deadline. The Principal Hotel is within ten miles of our London SW19 depot, a route that took our driver just over 50mins, passing the Imperial War Museum, crossing the Thames on Waterloo Bridge and going around Covent Garden. Unfortunately, when we arrived at the hotel, the large format print was still in use. Our drivers will always wait on site for as long as needed, this will incur a waiting charge, but it means as soon as you are ready our driver is there.
Watford is only 22 miles from the Principal Hotel, which took our driver a little over an hour. Although we were running later than initially intended, the team in the office kept everyone up to date with progress and kept in regular contact with our driver.
Another happy client…
