Improve the Performance, Safety, and Profit of Your Rental Business with Delivery Efficiency

Running a rental business can be an incredibly profitable
enterprise. But it can also have a very thin profit margin with equipment
purchase and upkeep overhead that’s considerably higher than that of many other
businesses. As such, improving the performance, safety, and profit of a rental
business in whatever ways are possible will be necessary for running a
successful business. And sometimes, perhaps more often than not, those areas in
which a business can be optimized and streamlined to guarantee success are the
ones less often considered, the small—but ever so important—details.

There are any number of excellent guides to watching cash
flow, taking advantage of equipment and product purchasing deals, analyzing
your market and buying accordingly, knowing when to sell and upgrade equipment,
etc. As those have been well-covered, this article is focused on a specific
area in which that optimization can be accomplished: delivery. It covers not
only practical equipment concerns, like when a stair climbing cart is a better choice
than a traditional hand truck, but also why a well-trained and customer
service-savvy delivery driver is so crucial to a rental business’s success.

Plan the Most
Efficient Routes

Planning the most efficient delivery routes may seem like a
relatively minor detail but it can make a big difference. Having the most
efficient route provides a number of benefits. Primary among those benefits are
basic practicalities: A more efficient route means less spent on gas, delivery
vehicles being monopolized for less time, and more productive delivery drivers.
This results in quicker delivery for customers—and keeping customers happy and
pleased with the service is the name of the game. There are a number of apps
and software programs that can be employed to optimize route efficiency.
Familiarizing drivers with them makes good sense.  

Use the Right Tools

Using the right tools for deliveries, particularly heavy
rental equipment, saves time, saves labor, increases the efficiency of the
delivery process, and most importantly, makes those responsible for the
delivery safer. The key is having the tools that are best for the job. As
mentioned earlier, almost
every delivery driver is well aware of how incredibly helpful a hand truck is,
but if the delivery driver has to navigate stairs during their deliveries, a
stair climbing truck or cart is going to make the process far easier and safer
for all. Likewise, if your rental equipment involves heavy, bulky, awkward
loads, consider investing in a heavy duty
hand truck
with straps or employing an appliance hand truck. Investment in
the right tools for the job can increase efficiency, safety, and pay huge
dividends.

Delivery Drivers as
Customer Service Ambassadors

It’s surprising how often the importance of the delivery
driver as a customer service ambassador is overlooked. For many customers, the
only personal interaction they’ll have with a representative of the company is interacting
with the person doing the delivery. Their experience with the delivery person,
good or bad, can absolutely shape
or even solidify their decision regarding whether or not to utilize your business services
again. It’ll also certainly influence how they’ll describe your business to
friends and review it online.

Drivers
are often the point of contact for customers who experience issues such as a
mixed up order. How the delivery person reacts, how helpful and
understanding they are, and everything else about their response to a
customer’s problem will also very likely contribute to their opinion about your
rental business. Therefore, it’s best to ensure that every member of the team,
including people carrying out deliveries, have the tools, resources, and proper
customer support training necessary to handle any situation effectively and
professionally.
