Even though our normal service area is between Chichester and Lymington down in the South Coast, we have had a lot of enquiries from potential customers up in the East Coast.
Lately, we have enquiries originating from Ipswich, Essex and Kent area. In the past, we have gone up to the East Coast to measure up and fit covers for yachts and motorboats. Whilst some customers are prepared to pay the full peak season costs of us working further afield, for some it adds an unacceptable premium to the product cost. However, we are able to substantially discount the surcharge this time of year to just cover the cost of fuel and minimal expenses.
The value of spend would need to warrant the trip, but having said that, if more than one customer is interested in us going up to measure and fit; it may be an idea to split the cost of travelling amongst the various jobs; making this more economical for the customers and us. We are more than happy to go up to Ipswich, Essex and Kent to measure up and fit and at this time of year as we may be able to put together a few jobs to make it a worthwhile trip.
If there was a need to modifications on the new boat covers, our fitter will take them back to the factory and the modified covers will then be couriered back to the customer. We would normally be able to quote for items if customers sent us pictures of their boats and have a discussion with one of our member of staff about their requirements. We don’t normally have to travel up to prepare quotes.
Alternatively we are able to supply many standard design Sprayhoods, Cockpit Enclosures and Biminis on a self fit basis with comprehensive fitting instructions.
Please don’t forget that we do have CAD patterns of various yachts and motorboats on file which can be supplied to customers on self-fit basis. Carriage and packing charges will be charged at cost. Please visit www.tecsew.com and go to the gallery pages to see if we have made the Sprayhoods, Cockpit Enclosures and Biminis for your boat.
