Firstly, don’t get too hung up if the water you want to stock seems a long way from Shropshire. We are, in fact, pretty much central to the whole country.
Every year we hear tales of woe from customers who have bought fish from their local supplier even though they knew him to be a complete idiot and the fish he had for sale were inferior but the decision was made not to order from us because of concern about the distance we would have to transport their fish. Please Stop Worrying! For most folk, moving a few fish an hour down the road is a big deal but successfully delivering carp and other coarse fish from our farm in the Midlands to fisheries from Cornwall to Scotland is what we have perfected over the last twenty years, it is no big deal for us and our equipment.
Coarse fish delivery is all on our own transport in tanks fitted with the best oxygen and air systems to ensure your fish arrive happy and healthy.
With ever increasing fuel, insurance, labour tax and maintenance costs, the real cost of sending a vehicle out on delivery for the day is becoming really significant. We reckon it costs about £230 to send a vehicle out for a whole day. Please don’t read this as a whinge, it is just a fact of life.
Whilst the accountant says we should pass the whole lot onto you, the customer, I disagree but we do ask for a contribution as follows, please.
