Leading turf supplier, Paynes Turf, is expanding its delivery fleet of FORS accredited vehicles following sustained growth of the business in the UK. The investment will allow the 40-year-old turf company, which grows premium quality turf at its 1500-acre farms in Essex and Suffolk, to meet increasing demand for Paynes Turf’s products and services.
Paynes Turf products include turf, topsoils and border bark, with turf supplied in 1sqm rolls or in big rolls of 20sqm, the latter being ideal for landscapers working on large-scale commercial projects, allowing turf to be laid quickly and effectively.
The company has enhanced its delivery service with the addition of a tenth vehicle to its fleet, all of which are fitted with custom-built smart GPS tracking systems that allow drivers to stay ahead of the traffic, and include piggy-back forklift unloading.
“Efficient landscaping work requires turf to be on site at the right time, which is often early in the working day for landscapers. Reliable delivery is yet another area where Paynes Turf excels; we operate our own fleet so that we can better meet our customers’ needs – delivering right on site with our forklift unloading where required,” said John Payne, Partner at Paynes Turf.
Paynes’ turf is harvested the day before delivery to ensure that it arrives fresh and in the best condition. “Much of our business relies on recommendations and reputation so it’s important that we go that extra mile to provide a fast and efficient delivery service.”
