Tampa, FL (PRWEB) September 17, 2012
Tampa-based DFH Express has exceeded growth forecasts for its first year in business, expanding from one to 13 locations in the Tampa Bay area to meet the demands for furniture, electronics, sporting and recreational goods, and large merchandise delivery throughout the Tampa Bay region.
Owned and operated by Andre Bankston, DFH Express began as a one-van operation in Tampa focused on TLC pickup, delivery, set-up and assembly of furniture, appliances, and other large items. Each of these purchases from retail outlets, private sellers and thrift shops are made by customers who have no way of getting it home themselves. DFH Express is a network of trained delivery professionals covering the entire Tampa Bay area, with plans to expand nationally.
The key to DFH Express’s rapid success is its high performance standards, competitive rates, and the ability to meet the individual consumer’s needs each and every time.
Bankston says that Tampa had a real need for a professional, domestic express delivery service when he first opened his company’s doors in September 2011. Up to then, he had been contracting with a variety of local retailers to deliver and set up products ranging from bedroom sets to washers and dryers, to flat screen televisions. It didn’t take long for Bankston to realize the opportunity for expansion was tremendous.
"We expected to grow quickly, but we’re still pleasantly surprised with the results of our first year’s business growth plan,” Bankston says. “We've been able to meet the needs of our customers efficiently and affordably, and business has grown exponentially through word of mouth.”
The competitive moving and delivery industry is not without its challenges, including its seasonal nature and the fact that business is busiest at the beginning and end of each month, which can translate to some logistical challenges if you’re not prepared, Bankston says. But people shop for furniture and appliances all the time, and for those who need an occasional pick-up and delivery of an oversized item, DFH Express can be a godsend.
“Vehicles are getting smaller, and package merchandise is becoming increasingly larger,” Bankston says. “Our most fundamental role is helping customers transport their large purchases home safely and securely.
“We understand that our customers just spent a good amount of money on something new for their home, and they would take it home themselves if it fit in their car, or if it wasn’t so heavy.
“We’ll pick it up and get it to their home safe and sound.”
