Two-person delivery company ArrowXL is trialling an extension to its established Highland service with Argos which will see customers on the main Scottish islands – including Shetland – able to order large items for home delivery from the online retailer on an available day of their choice at prices matching the rest of the UK.

Customers will also benefit from ArrowXL’s network of local service providers who offer regular communication about the progress of the delivery.

Laurence Garnett, head of supply chain and logistics strategy at Sainsbury’s said: “Argos is committed to delivering convenience and flexibility for customers alongside outstanding choice and value. It’s our mission to make their lives easier and this trial will mean that whether shoppers are in Shetland or the Western Isles, they can choose from around 20,000 products and get them delivered quickly and conveniently. We’ll be listening closely to customer and colleague feedback over the next few months.”

ArrowXL chief executive Charlie Shiels said: “We are working closely with Argos to promote service equality across the UK and give choice and certainty to 41,000 additional homes in the Scottish Islands."
