Competition Hots Up For Autumn & Alton's November 2013 Schedule

Well there's a definite autumnal chill in the air & boaters have got their stoves lit. For us it's been a case of the competition is hotting up too ;-). Around 10th October four Coalboats came through Barbridge Junction, Alton was one of them. Lots of customers have phoned, texted, emailed & talked to us in person regarding Coalboats trading on the same areas. We've always said, that we admire anyone who wants to seriously earn their living from the inland waterways & running a coalboat requires a huge amount of hard work mixed with passion & dedication with a sprinkling of good luck. There's a long history of Number Ones on the cut & long may it continue. Competition is good for customers, it means we will strive to sell quality products at competitive prices, whilst providing a regular reliable deliveries with a friendly service. We're going to keep thing positive & friendly, so far our customers have stuck with us loyally & we want it to stay that way. Please continue to give us your feedback, what products & services you want & we'll aim to provide them.
