Winter imports and transport costs

May 2015 Newsletter

The weather is certainly cooler – winter must be upon us! This is the time of year for maintenance, stock taking and planning for the coming season. Here at Grow-Rite, we’ve upgraded our accounting system, which involved re-capturing hundreds of invoices; and we’ve sorted and tidied our warehouse to accommodate new stock!

In the past week or so, we’ve already received shipments of buffered coir, perlite, Jiffy products and thermo-formed pots! We’ve been super busy! Next week, shipments of buffered coco peat (coir) and colour deco pots will arrive. Be sure to visit our warehouse to collect your orders and to see the new product ranges!

Due to the rise in fuel costs and the need for Grow-Rite to become more efficient and cost-effective, we have had to implement a standard delivery charge for all deliveries ranging from the Southern Suburbs to Blouberg, Paarl and Somerset West. The standard rate is R100 per delivery. Courier services can also be arranged for local customers and for those staying further afield. One pallet load couriered to JHB costs, on average, R850. The best option, of course, is to collect your order from our warehouse in Epping 1! We look forward to seeing you!

Kind regards
Helen & The Grow-Rite Team
