Cargobox is an online retail business that cares about two things:
It's no secret that business, retail and customer service are both all hard work.
Therefore, we try and belly-laugh at least once every day!
We also try to provide a memorable experience for our customers...
With that in mind... here is who we are:
Have you ever seen the episode of "Only Fools and Horses" where Trigger is lamenting his success at receiving an award for keeping the same broom for 20 years? (If not, you can view it here: http://youtu.be/pbha4XclSMU)
Just like Trigger's broom having 17 new heads, and 14 new handles (but being the same broom!) - our business model has gone through many changes to get to this point - but it's only taken us 9 years to hit a winning formula!
The emergence of Cargobox has been just like our friend Trigger: spectacularly... er.... slow!
But, thanks to (big intake of breath!)... one incredibly tolerant, understanding and remarkable wife, several remarkably visionary investors, two amazing children, 1 award, two magazine articles, spending the contents of the "copper jar" (several times!), many incredible customers (incredible both ways!)... Cargobox is now here (finally!) and as I don't want to feel the full wrath of the aforementioned wife and children, I plan for Cargobox to be here for at least as long as Triggers broom! (Or until the kids have left home anyway!)
