We have received a huge influx of enquiries regarding Slips From Stock delivery price. We wanted to address the huge impact COVID-19 and Brexit has had on our business as well as the sacrifices we have made for the you, the customer.
Whilst we briefly discussed Slips From Stocks delivery fees in a previous blog, we felt it was important to discuss the subject more thoroughly.
The COVID-19 pandemic had major implications on every industry and the haulage industry was no exemption. Many foreign workers opted to return home during the pandemic and, as of yet, haven’t shown any signs of returning. This has led to a huge shortage of HGV drivers. This is currently estimated to be around 100,000. So due to being majorly understaffed, haulage companies have had to hike their prices. Rather than inflate price for the customer to reflect this, Slips From Stock delivery price remained the same.
Slips From Stock have held their delivery price since it launched it 2019. We absorbed an increase in costs when the UK officially left the EU back at the end of 2020. This was so that our products remained as affordable as to possible to as many people. Furthermore, whilst the samples we offer are completely free for the consumer, they cost us around £14 to produce each one.
We really hope you have a better understanding of why Slips From Stock delivery price is £50. Although we would love to make it cheaper for customers it is just not feasible in this current economic climate.
