Yet another unusual request for our Operations Team! Late one Tuesday we had a call from a company desperate to get 5 specially carved pumpkins from Cheshire to Chessington World of Adventures the following morning.

With the cargo being so fragile there was no other way to get them the 200+ miles than using a dedicated vehicle. After convincing one of our drivers we weren’t pulling his leg, we had the pumpkins safely on board one of our courier vans.

An early start was needed to make sure he beat the famous M25 traffic but everything went to plan and the pumpkins were delivered with time to spare.
