Frequently Asked Questions

Why would our customers pay for a rapid delivery, when they can collect the order themselves, or use our free delivery service?

Your customers will work out which is their best option. If they have pre-planned items they require they will order in advance for delivery or collect on their way to their job. If they are already on their job and need a missing part quickly, they will work out if it is more cost effective for them to travel to you to collect, or pay for a rapid delivery.

How much does this service cost?

Delivery prices are calculated using the distance and time to make the delivery. There are no additional setup fees or subscription for this service, you only pay for the deliveries we provide for you. You can decide to pass this cost on to your customer, mark it up, discount it, or absorb the cost yourself.

We already provide free deliveries from our own vans, why would we need this service?

This is a premium service over and above your current free delivery service where your customer needs the part sending straight away.

What are the payment terms?

We will invoice you for the delivery charges. Payments are taken automatically on a weekly basis using your provided bank details.

Who are your delivery drivers?

We source community-based, independent delivery drivers. These may be Uber drivers, Taxi drivers, couriers, or drivers working exclusively for TradeDrop.

What types of businesses use you?

We partner with a wide range of suppliers such as electrical wholesalers, plumbers merchants and other businesses who sell to the trade.

What security measures are in place?

Our delivery app has a number of in-built security measures to ensure the security of the delivery. These include a secure collection code so that you can verify the driver collecting the parcel, a secure delivery code, signature verification, and GPS tracking to ensure the parcel can only be delivered to the correct customer.
