Contact Phone Number and Flash

Technology changes, and continually evolves.

At Transfervans, we are are building customer centric delivery solutions for our customers using various technologies.

You can:
1) Book online
2) Receive Text Nofifications
3) Track Online
4) With more to come

As an online provider, our systems are geared towards booking online. However, some customers also occasionally call us to ask questions. So today, we hit a little a hurdle.

Our telephone diversion system uses Adobe Flash. Or rather it did!

Adobe Flash is no longer working as of 12 January 2021. Adobe has removed all support, and Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome and Firefox no longer support the Flash plugin from running.

We’ve developed a quick work around so calls can still come through. Should you experience any issues with connection, please email us at [email protected]

Delivery Disruption From Auckland Harbour Bridge Closure

Following damage to the Auckland Harbour Bridge and subsequent repairs, Transfervans experienced a number of disruptions to our delivery service.

Auckland Harbour Bridge
Auckland Harbour Bridge – Closures following damage and high winds

Last week, a support beam on Auckland’s Harbour Bridge was damaged when a gust of wind blew a truck into it, closing lanes for many days.

The disruptions to our customers were minimal and we did not receive any adverse comments. However, if you were inconvenienced, we apologise for these disruptions.

An additional bridge closure this morning at short notice, due to high winds, has adversely affected deliveries for today (29 September 2020).

Due to this short notice, we have been unable to compensate with our delivery routing procedure. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

The delivery teams will continue to keep customers updated throughout the day, via text.

Keeping an Eye on NPS Feedback

Transfervans uses customer feedback to provide visibility on performance and customer satisfaction, throughout the customer journey.

We use the Net Promoter Score, a globally recognised metric, to measure a number of different metrics so that we can se trends and address problems.

Transfervans NPS as at 3Aug2020
Keeping an eye on our NPS score is important to improve service levels

We use this data to understand the challenges in the delivery process, and create New Zealand’s most customer centric delivery provider.

It’s always interesting to see how we can do better. But it’s always lovely when some data blips occur, showing our scores for August to be 100. But it’s also interesting to see where we are coming up short, and in which areas.

We’ll keep working hard to do things better. Thank you to all our customers for providing feedback for the deliveries. If you want to make a booking, visit https://transfervans.co.nz

This is a safety precaution and continues the process that was announced before the lockdown began in March.

Well done New Zealand, let’s stay safe.
