Sports and gym equipment courier service


Avanti deliver sports and gym equipment including table tennis tables, large mats and apparatus to schools and health clubs nationwide as well as to residential addresses. The drivers are required to deliver directly to the point of use which is often some distance from the nearest access point for the vehicle.

Arranging delivery for your sports equipment couldn't be easier. Send us your orders via email and let our dedicated booking team do the rest. We will consolidate your orders into our operations system then contact the school on your behalf to arrange a suitable delivery date and time, giving them an AM or PM delivery option.

We can also offer the additional benefits of delivery to a particular room or location of the school or clubs choice / fully trained two man delivery crew / an en-route call to the school or club / removal of packaging or additional options tailored to your and the school's or clubs requirements.

So if you are looking for a reliable and professional service you can trust, look no further & give Avanti a call for a friendly no obligation quotation for your sports equipment deliveries.

Kay-Metzeler produce a wide range of products including gym mats, safety mattresses, high jump and pole vault beds and martial arts products.  A network of catalogue companies and Regional Public Buying Consortiums form the main customer base.  Many of these orders are consolidated by Avanti for collection and delivery throughout the UK.

September has been a busy time with schools back with new budgets to spend and even some newly built schools requiring large quantities of sports equipment for their initial fit out. Staff at Avanti have been working hard for Kay-Metzler in recent weeks due to buoyant sales but have always maintained the high service levels expected. The operations team has always made sure that the schools are contacted ahead of time to agree a time slot that doesn't conflict with other activities. Sophisticated route planning in the office and unequalled levels of conscientiousness by our drivers ensure that the agreed time slot is achieved. Not all schools have caretakers available so our drivers are always prepared to deliver to wherever the equipment needs to go. 

Andrew Platt of Kay-Metzeler commented on Avanti "Alex and his team provide our company with a professional speedy service to the satisfaction of our customers"

UK Table Tennis is the sole authorised importer of Cornilleau and Tectonic table tennis equipment, as well as the Garlando brand of freeplay football tables. They act as the UK wholesaler with central stocks of these brands for supply to customers throughout the UK. Cornilleau and Garlando are both leading brands in their respective market sectors.

With 60 years of experience and a presence in more than 45 countries worldwide, Cornilleau is the largest European table tennis equipment manufacturer and a leading supplier of premium table tennis products worldwide. Garlando is a quality Italian manufacturer and the brand is synonymous with quality, innovation and design.

UK Table Tennis sells primarily through a network of experienced distributors and also supplies direct to the education sector, institutions and table tennis clubs. They have a large stock of spare parts both for current and discontinued tables and are Cornilleau's and Garlando's UK representative for all warranties.

Towards the end of 2010 UK Table Tennis considered their options regarding their logistics partner. Like many good businesses, UK Table Tennis had a sound logistics supplier but were not complacent about customer service. Having reviewed a number of possible partners it was decided to switch to Avanti Express as the options available from Avanti would further enhance the delivery service and therefore the customer experience.

The process starts for Avanti with the delivery, by lorry, of the tables into our warehouse in Manchester. Care is taken with product identification as although the boxes look very similar, there can be over 20 different types of table in the warehouse at any time.

Delivery notes are received by Avanti with details of the delivery address and contact and also whether the delivery is for UK Table Tennis or one of its distributors. The Avanti customer service team contact the end customer to arrange a delivery date and time. A service that is much appreciated by residential customers as many work and need to take time off to arrange delivery. Everybody has had the experience of waiting in for that important delivery that doesn't arrive – not for UK Table Tennis and not with Avanti!

A service that is requested by approximately 15% of customers is for the delivery drivers to assemble the table on site. The delivery note shows whether the customer has paid for this service and time is allowed accordingly in the delivery schedule. After the “day shift” is complete the Avanti logistics team consolidate all the orders for the following day and produce the route schedules. The schedules are sent to the warehouse and the orders picked. Routes can either be loaded the same evening or the following morning according to the route details.

All table deliveries are two man due to the size and weight of the products (a table can weigh anything from 48kg right up to 135kg). It is important that the tables are transported according to the manufacturer’s instructions (upright for table tennis tables, horizontal for football tables) to avoid damaging the product whilst in transit. UK Table Tennis has trained Avanti's delivery drivers on how to unpack and assemble the tables according the manufacturer’s instructions. As this service forms part of the product purchase it is vital that it is done correctly first time. With UK Table Tennis' reputation for high quality and a high percentage of sales through distributors, poor assembly work would quickly be noticed.

Avanti Express are proud to be associated with UK Table Tennis and delighted to be able to serve them.

Nicola Waters of UK Table Tennis saidThe logistics side of our business is critical. Customers are increasingly demanding in their expectations; they demand better service, quicker deliveries and trouble free purchases. The reasons we selected Avanti  rather than any of the other companies we considered are numerous but include speed of delivery, flexibility and a customer-driven service.
