“ Today we were in London and delivered to a celebrity , but other days we might be driving along country roads in the hilly landscapes of Wales ”
“ I prefer to drive early when the roads are clear , and I love being out and meeting new people ,” says driver Dan Heathcock ( pictured above ). “ Today we were in London and delivered to a celebrity , but other days we might be driving along country roads in the hilly landscapes of Wales .”
There ’ s nowhere in the United Kingdom that the Cotswold Company doesn ’ t deliver to – for free – within 14 days if the product is in stock , although it may take a little longer to deliver to the north of Scotland or the Scottish Islands . For the vast majority of orders , you ’ ll be able to choose your own delivery date . For in stock orders you can select a delivery date while placing your order ; for out of stock items you can book your delivery date online once your order arrives with us .
We have our own fleet , with dedicated drivers who only work for Cotswold . “ It ’ s a really nice company to work for . We ’ re kept up to date on what ’ s going on in the company says Dan . “ Over the past 18 months we ’ ve just been doing doorstep deliveries , but we ’ re starting to deliver into
so the cardboard then gets recycled .”
Additional delivery services you can choose , priced from £ 14.99 , include a four-hour-window upgrade , so you receive a notification the morning of the day of delivery providing you with a four-hour timeslot . We can also deliver to a room of your choice .
“ I ’ ve been driving with Dale since I started ten months ago . The first day we didn ’ t even put the radio on , we just talked all day . We live five minutes away from each other in the Black Country ,” Dan says . Our drivers are based here as it ’ s the middle of the country , meaning shorter driving times . “ When I get home I have a shower , some food , spend time with my family . Recharge my batteries .”
