ANNOUNCEMENT: Base Rates will increase by R2 starting November 14th

Dear Valued Customers,

 

 

Greetings from ECD (Easy Collect & Drop) team.

 

 

The Department of Mineral Resources and Energy announced recently the newest prices for fuel indicating an increase in diesel price by around R1.44 per litre in November. This increase is due to the depreciation of the ZAR against the USD and the hike in fuel prices globally.

 

 

ECD has been doing its best to maintain affordable rates and has not increased its delivery fees since the start of 2022, but it is no longer possible for us to run operations normally.

 

We regret to announce that ECD has no other choice but to increase the base rate of all delivery options by R2.00 (the change will affect the base rate only, for example, the Door-to-Door delivery fee will start from R52.00 instead of R50.00).

 

This increase will come into effect on Monday 14 November 2022.

We ask for your kind understanding, and we will keep doing our utmost best to offer you the most convenient delivery experience in South Africa.

 

Best regards,

ECD team
