Providing the best in-class delivery service for 13 years.
We can’t quite believe that DMR has been trading for 13 years – just where have the years gone? Since that very first delivery in 2001, we have always ensured that we provide the very best in customer service whilst being cost effective for our clients. We are proud to have been and continue to be the go-to trusted courier service in Shropshire.
We have had some memorable jobs over the years, but the one that really stands out for us is a job that happened for MacMillan Cancer Support.
At the end of 2015, DMR’s director Derek Bennion, caught wind of an email appeal from MacMillan. They needed someone to courier game birds from Scotland to London for a prestigious charity fundraiser at a private members club in Mayfair. This event was a big deal since it was destined to make at least £20,000 for the charity.
We were the first to contact them and tell them that we would be happy to help. We quickly received the remit; they needed someone to pick up 150 frozen grouse from Scotland and Cumbria to the central London location.
Our driver, Gareth Jones, quickly volunteered to carry out the 800 mile trip himself for his own personal reasons. As it was such a great distance to travel in one go, we carefully monitored his progress using our vehicle tracking system from the start of his journey at Kelso in Scotland. He then went onto Brough in Cumbria to collect the second lot of birds before heading down to his London destination.
The Luncheon was a great success and we were happy to have played a pivotal role in helping the charity.
These past 13 years have been a challenge but always enjoyable.
