Additional service delivery at the CDFHS
We have launched our â€śHandyman Serviceâ€ť this month along with the acquisition of a small general purpose van to support this new venture. We often find that the washing machines and cookers we supply need installing for our clients. Our large furniture vans are increasingly in demand for larger clearances and clients' demands for value new and reused furniture are growing ever larger. Our regular customers expect and should get next day service. Buying a small van seems at odds with this, howeverâ€¦.
We also are increasingly doing small clearance, repairs, paint and decorate work. Buying a Vauxhall Combo with 5 crew seats has meant we can do this and also move volunteers and workers as needed to jobs to really put people power, where needed, in place.
This vehicle also adds to our transport of volunteers who we increasingly support to come in to CDFHS from the rural areas of the county. Taking the burden and cost of travel off of them. It means we can be sure of staffing and that our larger furniture vans can concentrate on our core service delivery.
