With London Fashion Week (LFW) underway, if you’ve ever wondered how they get high-value, intricate, and far-out designs from a designer’s studio to the catwalk, then you may want to learn more about a garment on hanger courier service!
What is a Garment on Hanger (GOH) Courier Service?
A garment on hanger courier service is one of the offerings from courier services that offer fashion distribution.
As its name suggests, when it comes to a garment on hanger service, it means that garments are picked up and transported on hangers and stored on racks during transportation.
Speedy Freight have specialist vehicles with built-in racks to transport garments, from luxury high-fashion goods to rare and delicate garments.
This type of service is ideal for anyone operating within the fashion industry, whether you’re a supplier delivering to a shop, a fashion house delivering garments to a fashion show, or moving stock from one shop to another.
Who Should Use a Garment on Hanger (GOH) Courier Service?
Every company’s needs are different, and whether you need something delivered from one of your fashion studios to another, sample garments delivered to a photoshoot, valuable designer pieces shipped to a fashion show, or anything in between—you may benefit from a garment on hanger courier service.
It is the safest way to transport garments from A to B and ensures the proper storage and handling of your clothing—important in an industry where garments can be made from a range of sensitive materials that require special care and handling throughout their journey.
From delicate lace to heavy beadwork, fragile silk, and moisture-sensitive fabrics like suede, you want to ensure your garments are being carefully handled and stored during transport. Additionally, many garments can lose their shape and fabrics can be stretched out from improper storage.
What are the Benefits of a Garment on Hanger Courier Service?
Proper Storage During Transport: When it comes to the route between pickup and delivery, whether your destination is just a few miles away, or at the other end of the country, you want them to be stored properly along the way. The best way to store your garments during transport is using a garment on hanger courier service.
Wrinkle-Free Delivery: The option of garment transportation using GOH enables you to receive wrinkle-free clothing with either no or minimal re-work required after your goods arrive.
Save Time and Money: When your goods are delivered on hangers, this minimises or eliminates the time spent unboxing, steaming, ironing, or hanging your deliveries. Your garments come to you ready to be hung on a clothing rack, allowing you to reduce costs and lead time.
Flexibility: When you’re short on time and resources, partnering with a fashion distribution courier service that delivers garments on hangers, can help you allocate your time and resources to more important tasks, and permits flexibility within your schedule, which can be especially tight during costly by-the-hour photoshoots and fashion shows.
Prevent Damage: Garments of high value and made from delicate and sensitive materials such as silk, lace, and wool, need to be properly stored to prevent them from being misshapen or incurring any other damage during transit.
Additional Safety: As is the case with any consignments of high value and high importance, you want to ensure they get to your destination safely and securely. Your garments are of no exception, and whether you’re dealing with one-of-a-kind designer pieces or multiple pieces of a fragile or delicate nature, you can ensure your garments will be handled with the utmost care.
Careful Handling: As a garment on hanger courier service is a specialist service, you can rest assured that the teams handling your deliveries will be trained and have extensive experience
