With national Government coronavirus restrictions due to lift on 2nd December there is no time like the present to prepare for re-openings and forecasted colder weather, advises Barriers Direct.
The online safety and security equipment business are predicting certain products will be high on customers’ Christmas lists this year, including an increased demand for grit bins and storage solutions.
Wall mounted grit bins are the ideal solution when space is at a premium, whilst larger grit bins are popular for covering expansive areas such as car parks or company premises. They can be safely stored by the roadside and are robust and highly durable.
Other products already proving popular are bike ceiling hoists. With more of us now cycling to work to avoid public transport following Government advice, bicycle storage is a challenge when space is limited. Ceiling hoists are growing in popularity as they provide effective storage, meaning cycles are kept safe and secure at home.
For business and residential customers alike, Parcel boxes are anticipated to be a top seller this festive period. As lockdown restrictions ease and employees head back to the office, parcel boxes provide safe and effective storage for your valuable online purchases should you not be at home at the time of delivery. A 3 point locking system provides maximum security and eliminates the risk of items received at Goods In becoming mislaid in the warehouse.
Avoiding delivery chaos
Postal services and courier firms are predicted to see a 40% increase in volume this Christmas (Retail Week), so Barriers Direct are urging customers to plan ahead to avoid any delays impacting them this season.
“We’re fortunate to have stock available for next day delivery, in UK warehouses”, says Managing Director, Janine Carhart. “December is going to be the busiest trading period ever for the UK’s postal services and couriers. We are urging customers to get ahead by placing their order requirements earlier to help spread demand, particularly if businesses require equipment for safe re-opening or poor weather conditions”.
This year Barriers Direct has also seen a big demand increase for its stretch belt barriers and other social distance enforcers as businesses around the country raced to bring in new precautionary measures to keep employees and customers safe, as COVID-19 tightens its grip on the nation.
