    hi

    I was just reading the replies regarding letterboxmarketing. I had the same problems, I paid for over 45,000 items to be delivered, I then requested street maps of the drops and then i proceeded to check the areas myself. out of the 45 houses I asked only 3 said yes they recieved it.

    I ended up taking them to small claims court, I had over 40 signed statements from people saying they never received them but they turned up with a hot shot solicitor and ended up getting off even after admitting in court not all the copies were delivered.

    General tip - AVOID THEM.

    Hello Gillian,

    there are numerous leaflet delivery companies that do this, but few would be interested in taking on 1000.

    For 1000 your best bet is to get a couple of friends and do it yourself, that way you'll be absolutely sure they are done. (One of the main issues with leaflet delivery companies!!).

    I have a 10K drop going in Lisburn W/C 21st if thats of interest.

    regards

    Do it yourself!! I have used this company recently spending £375 for 5000 flyers and out of 30 follow up calls in the area no one received the leaflets. Of course I paid up front and got caught out - but will never use them again.

    We always get more response when you do it yourself, get a team together and use friends and family people you can trust!

    Hi Aaron

    I would say that doing them yourself is the best bet too. Where in Belfast are you wanting to do? I was also thinking of doing some myself, I have did some locally and you would be surprised how quickly you can get 500 threw out.

    Hi David

    Is that for colour flyers or mono? I am not just ready for them at the minute but I will be in the very near future. Do you do Business cards too?
    Do you use couriers at all?

    Hi,

    I run a distribution company, most of the complaints on here or that the leaflets were not delivered thats why i started my company we guarantee that all leaflets will be delivered, The reason is all distributions are supervised by staff which their sole job is to supervise which means corners cannot be cut or leaflets disappearing.My service on shared costs £32 per thousand most people tend to use companys that charge less if you pay more it tends to be for a reason although i do know that this isnt always the case. Ask the company if you can see the delivery take place. I map out distributions and give the list to my clients which shows estimated delivery times on each street which allows my clients to come out whenever they please without them having to ask were the delivery's are taking place to give them more comfort that the job is being done,

    My main areas are Manchester, Liverpool, Bolton, Wigan and surrounding areas. Although i do tend to get orders from across the UK which can be done but involves minimum orders or a couple of orders from that area.

    If anyone wants to speak or want to know what to look for just PM me ill be happy to help.

    Regards

    Feel i need to rply to this, will keep it short. Few points.

    Sometimes the lack of response can be down to the Leaflet itself, the design and if it catches the eye.

    back checks cannot be accurate, obviously if you check on random houses, how many of these people actually remember every leaflet that came through the door? a lot of them go straight into the bin

    we have tracker systems which put our customers at ease, we also list every street they go to and the number of houses they go to in in each street.

    We deliver over 80,000 per months for various companies across the North West. We have had only ever had 1 complaint. A local Italian restaurant complained that after 5 days , he only had one reply to his 5,000 drop? is that our fault that within those 5 days only one person wished to eat Italian food?, also they must take into account not every person who gets the leaflet will take it with them to the Restaurant.

    As for the deliveries and prices, we charge £40 per 1,000 , if its solous of not, thats all the way through, it's easily possible to deliver 1,000 per day, i wouldnt ever tell a customer it would be anymore than that. If we get a job for 10,000 we would tell the customer 10 days, obviously bigger jobs we put more staff on them

    As for Companies that charge £25 per 1,000, its just not possible. It wouldnt even match the minimum wage
