What are the sources and methodology

The sources of data used within this report are derived from publicly available data, third-party analysts, company reports and websites and companies house data.

Apex Insight has used a number of assumptions to build the estimated market data contained within the report. We have used third-party market valuations of the key product segments applicable to two man home delivery.

These are products such as washing machines, tumble dryers, fridge freezers, sofas, dining room tables, bed frames, divans and mattresses.

We have not included brown goods in the market assumptions as we took the view that brown goods would be delivered by courier using one man, although we concede that large televisions sometimes require two man delivery.

Apex Insight has used assumptions about average cost of delivery for certain product categories, as well as average cost of assembly and connection for certain items. We have also made assumptions about average cost of disposal on a per product category basis. Further, we have made assumptions about the likely consumer take-up of these services on a per product category basis.

The data was cross correlated against revenues of specialist two man home delivery companies, volumes for specific two man delivery contracts and other anecdotal information. This was carried out to confirm our market estimations.
