Following on from providing multi-drop delivery services for Northfield Nursery delivering hanging baskets (flowers) all over the UK for many years for a few weeks over Easter, I have built up a good knowledge of locations and roads all over England and Wales.

STAYING SAFE DURING THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) PANDEMIC

In response to Covid-19 requirements my transfers are now Covid-Safe with the following precautions:

1) I maintain a clean vehicle, wiping down touch-surfaces each trip with anti bactericidal wipes, washing hands thoroughly when leaving home or using hand sanitizer between jobs if I am on the road, and maintaining social distancing in public areas.

2) I wear mask and gloves when transferring luggage between my vehicle and venues, including inside buildings.  [I do not drive wearing a mask.]

3) There is no transfer of paper documents; confirmations are shown on my phone to staff at addresses I am collecting from or delivering to.

4) Gloves are disposed of securely following each transfer.


Cancellations due to Covid-19

Should a client need to cancel a transfer, even at short notice, because of Covid-19, there will be no charge.

Should I discover I am infected or have symptoms, I will not be able to provide transfers and will self-isolate for 14 days. I will inform any clients affected within 24 hours.


Loading a van with hanging baskets ready for delivery around the UK from Northfield Nursery in the New Forest.

When driving for the nursery I typically leave home at 5am, delivering to several different garden centres, and returning to the nursery to collect and load up for the next day, or I travel to the nursery and collect a load to be delivered that day.

The nursery provides about 20,000 hanging baskets per season to a variety of independent garden centres and chains.

Please visit northfieldnursery.co.uk for information about their services.
