Birthday Gifts Delivered London
If you're searching for Birthday Gifts Delivered London, then you're inevitably online and seeking to send a gift to the UK's capital city. It is a relatively straightforward experience due to logistics and an extensive choice. It's great if you know exactly what the recipient likes and can organise for a specific product to be delivered in good time. What happens when you are simply perusing for ideas or something different? Very often gift purchasing tends to be a last minute rush. This restricts choice to the immediate local vicinity, so flowers become the default go to option.
In 2016 London’s population was 8.8 million, 13% of the total UK population. 3.5 million people lived in Inner London, and 5.3 million lived in Outer London. (Source: https://www.trustforlondon.org.uk/data/londons-population-over-time/
With such a large population, there will be almost 9 million Birthdays celebrated every year. Many people from around the world and within London will wish to send a gift to a friend or family member to acknowledge the importance of the occasion.
With this in mind we've compiled a few key issues affecting delivery of Birthday Gifts within London and what it means for customer choice. The characteristics of your search for Birthday Gifts Delivered London are as follows.
1) London Traffic Congestion
It doesn't matter whether it is Central London or Greater London, pretty much everything within the M25 radius moves at a slow pace during weekdays. As a result if you are seeking to have a Birthday Gift delivered to someone in London, the chances of having it delivered on the same day as your order is distinctly hit and miss. This is because there is no choice but to rely on an individual human's ability to process, assemble and deliver your order to the correct address. The companies that have the best chance of doing this are florists with their own delivery transportation. Any other business will have to rely on a 3rd party courier. This means even if the business is within a few miles, it will still take 24 hrs to deliver your Birthday Gift as it will need to be packed, collected and then out for delivery next day.
2) High Cost of Property
Business Rents and Rates are extremely high, which has to be factored into the margins of the product. A typical Retail unit as used by a florist of under 800 square feet, (that's a mere 70 square metres) such as this one rents for £20,000 per annum. Rates will be a similar amount again.
Perhaps a warehouse such as this:
Warehouse for rent, West London.At a cost of £100,000 per annum excluding rates, it's a high fixed cost to overcome before any profit from the sale of Birthday Gifts delivered London can be derived. What does the above mean? It means that whilst competition is fierce online, the logical thought process of finding somewhere local tends to lead searchers down a blind alley. The local businesses find it difficult to process your order and make a profit.
3. Diversity of Housing
With rents and space at a premium, a large number of people live in apartments. This brings with it, its own set of problems in terms of executing the smooth delivery of a gift. Access to service areas is not always guaranteed. People are not always at home to take delivery. Business addresses are not always straightforward, since 95% of the UK economy is small business and micro businesses don't always have clear signage. Essentially there are umpteen reasons why something, which sounds comparatively simple can become a problem. This is where it is important to use a company, which specialises in ensuring the right goods are delivered to the right people at the right time to the right address. Such a company will work with customers to ensure that in the event of any unforeseen problems arising, someone will step in to make the right calls and ensure that your nice sentiment doesn't become an expensive hassle.
