This month, Actavo Direct is celebrating its first birthday.

Actavo | Hire & Sales Solutions – the leading supplier of specialised building equipment for hire and sale – launched Actavo Direct in 2015. Its bricks and clicks e-commerce portal offers a 24/7 online trade counter using its national branch network to deliver quality products direct to customers when and where they are needed.

Actavo Direct’s offering is unique in the hire and sale industry for the comprehensive range of equipment available, with 500 products for sale online.

Lynn Norton, Actavo e-Commerce Administrator, commented: “With the modern advances in technology and the ever-growing popularity of purchasing online, Actavo Direct complements our branch service seamlessly for our customers.

“It allows them to quickly and conveniently place an order through the website and then choose to have their items either delivered or to click and collect from one of our 26 branches across the country.”

Visitors to the website can also view product videos and health and safety guides, as well as access a direct line to a dedicated member to our customer service team should there be any queries.

CEO of Actavo | Structural Division, Roger Hastie, said; “The hire and sales industry is playing catch-up when it comes to online retail options with many customers struggling to find suitable websites.  Most are not user-friendly, offering very limited equipment online. Ultimately, we want Actavo customers to enjoy the same service online as they are accustomed to in our branches.

“Although some think that our sector is still not ready for digital, Actavo Direct has proven otherwise in its first year. Customers no longer want to be restricted by opening hours when placing their orders and expect reliable guaranteed delivery.”

Celebrating its first year, Actavo Direct will be running a competition for its customers offering them the chance to win FitBits worth £100. The prizes will be drawn every month throughout 2016 and all customers have a chance to enter online.

Wakefield College was the first to receive a FitBit prize after placing an order for crowd barriers. The college has chosen to auction its prize to raise further funds for the college.
