Setting up his vehicle transport business eight years ago, Dion McConchie had little idea how fast it would grow. Today Nelson Vehicle Deliveries has three separate operational sides, all servicing different aspects of the delivery industry. Always interested in trucks and vehicles, Dion ?rst established his business to deliver vehicles predominantly throughout the top of the South Island. The business grew, and along with working in conjunction with other transport operators, Dion soon set up the second facet of his company, to carry out furniture deliveries nationwide. Two years ago he implemented phase three, NVD Logistics, to carry out night runs carrying fragile and time-sensitive freight.
Today Nelson Vehicles Deliveries does overnight freight deliveries between Nelson and Christchurch, as well as daily runs to Blenheim and Picton from Nelson. Dion handles the workload and still ?nds time to do his own GST returns, but looks to the team at Alison Blanchett Smart Business Centre to sort his payroll and also the annual company accounts.
He’s been a client of Alison’s since ?rst starting his business almost a decade ago. ‘I like her personal approach to clients; it frees me up to concentrate on other business aspects.’ Dion uses the same personal approach philosophy to keep his clients satis?ed. ‘Customer satisfaction and providing good service are important to me.’
Many of his freight deliveries ex-Christchurch are TradeMe items, ranging from large to small. The same goes for his vehicle, freight and furniture deliveries. ‘I can accommodate any delivery from one person to large companies. If you want to move it, I can get it there for you.’
