Our company holds £14 - £20 million of brand new stock across the year so almost all orders are satisfied quickly from our huge stocks. It keeps lead times short and our (and your) customers happy.

Although we have over two hundred commercial vehicles buzzing around the UK, we can’t do everything ourselves. We utilise the most suitable external carrier companies to satisfy the need, which on some routes can often work our cheaper than our own trucks, benefiting us both.
We use various delivery options:
     • Our own Hughes Trade 3.5t vehicles in our busiest delivery areas in South East, London and Kent
     • Our own 100+ Hughes 3.5t vans across the Midlands and East Anglia
     • Our own bulk trunker trucks – including 40ft’s, 18t + drawbars and 7.5t’s
     • Manufacturer direct delivery to your business or nominated site address
     • Third party package and pallet delivery partners for increased national coverage

Hughes Trade is a flexible supply partner with solid resource and is keen to please. Time critical, super quick delivery solutions can often be accommodated with just the true incremental additional cost incurred by the customer.
Recent delivery examples include:
     • Delivering and installing kitchen appliances for local charities, to customers often requiring more care and assistance to ensure the job goes smoothly
     • UK wide deliveries into care homes, new projects and breakdown requirements
     • Intercepting direct manufacturer bulk delivery on-site to transfer, place and install hundreds of appliances to exact standards
     • Delivery of 1000+ TV’s for use in accommodation blocks and entertainment areas during the Olympics with over half installed into individual rooms by sixteen installers in one day
     • The supply and placement of ovens, hobs and refrigeration into University refurbishment programmes where integration with other suppliers is importance due to time constraints
