Spring is in the air – are you ready for the rush?

Everyone has different peak trading periods.   Some would say Christmas is their biggest retail challenge, but many companies feel the pressure at other times of the year such as Easter, Mother’s Day and the summer holidays. 

Retailers with airport outlets certainly feel the pinch in the summer holiday season. Suppliers of staples like milk and bread have a surge in demand when the children are on their school holidays and need feeding.

Well, it might not seem like it but the rush is only a matter of weeks away. If you haven’t planned for it already you’ve probably left it too late to build up stocks of roll cages, trays etc. to cope with demand. 

There are two options:

1. buy unbranded cages - that you’re likely to lose,
2. rent cages.

In the past, the issue with renting cages was the high cost of losing them. However now you can rent from our sister company at Roll Cage Rental and receive a free recovery service for the cages you lose and we find. 

They can offer this service because they are the only rental company that also has a nationwide recovery service for transit equipment.

Don’t throw your money away buying cages you will inevitably lose; go to the only rental company that helps you to hang onto the cages you rent.

 

 

From Warlock To Magician

Posted 13-10-15, Tags: Roll Cage Rental

When you land in trouble you grab the nearest helping hand but hero worship for saving the day can soon turn to aversion.

Remember the 1959 film "Warlock"[1] when Henry Fonda and Anthony Quinn were gunslingers hired to restore order to a lawless mining town?  Having cleaned up the neighbourhood the residents, as Fonda predicted, came to resent him and after much gunplay and romantic angst he leaves town.  Nice.

The Christmas Crunch

Well, every year the same plot is played out in UK supply chains swamped by the Christmas peak, except the ending isn’t so clean.  A sudden shortage of roll cages sends countless businesses into the hands of the cage rental companies who provide much needed short-term relief.  Come January the price has to be paid and, lo and behold, the number of cages to be returned is greater than the number available.  One large invoice later and relief has turned to resentment and, what’s worse, it will happen all over again next year.

But...

What would happen if the rental company was also the largest national asset recovery company in the UK?

What if this company were able to recover a proportion of the rental cages lost by their clients?   

What if this company shared that benefit with its clients  and softened the blow of the lost cages invoice?

Well that’s exactly what will happen.  ACQSYS is the UK’s leading roll cage and tray recovery business. If you rent equipment from us we will share with you the benefit gained from all of the lost ACQSYS rental cages we recover.

We call it the ACQSYS Rental Rebate Scheme and I think it will make you feel more kindly towards us than the poor residents of Warlock did towards Henry Fonda.

Why not contact us and find out?
