Hickman Transport began handling kitchens and bathrooms over twenty-five years ago in a single warehousing unit in SW18. Since then, the company has expanded year on year and now occupies a 25,000 square foot custom-fitted warehouse in NW10. Furniture, appliances and a wide variety of accessories arriving at our NW10 hub are offloaded and individually inspected before being stored in dedicated bays in our two-storey warehouse in accordance with manufacturers' recommendations, thus avoiding the risk of damage inherent in containerised or palletised storage solutions offered by most other companies in the Warehousing and Storage industry.
Our fully-integrated, custom-built database tracks all goods from the moment they arrive at our NW10 facility until the moment they are signed-off at their final destination and can provide minute-by-minute updates on your stock situation and delivery bookings, as well as a wide variety of statistics and details for the benefit of our customers.
Deliveries to showrooms and sites are undertaken by our highly experienced and CSCS-certified crews of two or more men working with a fleet of 3.5gvw and 7.5gvw vehicles with full National and International Operator Licensing.
"Having had the privilege to work with you and your team over the past six years I can testify to the high quality of service you offer. Undoubtedly, the quality and helpfulness of your staff has made my job a lot easier and their eagerness to go that 'extra mile' with difficult deliveries stands you apart from other delivery companies I have used in the past. Your warehousing and stock control systems provide invaluable information which allows us to control expenditure more efficiently and plan deliveries more precisely. Your attentiveness and helpfulness over the phone is second to none and you have saved the day on several occasions. Needless to say I look forward to continuing our close association for many years to come."
- Jonathan Wood, Norman Glenn Kitchens
"Some time ago we were looking to replace our existing transport company, having worked with Peter and Greg in the past we included them with several others in our search, the manner of their approach and the package offered was head and shoulders above all the rest, and all at Tsunami were impressed.
