MY BUZZ

MY BIO

I spent 20+ years working in procurement within the construction industry, my last job was for a company working in Central London which meant a 4 hour daily commute. So The Idea for Kids Away came about a couple of years ago when travelling with our 2 year old, we took everything he would need which meant we had nothing. Our aim is to be the most comprehensive store for parents travelling with kids and we only sell products that we feel are travel friendly. We sell the basic products such as Nappies, Food and Baby Milk but also items such as UV Clothing, Beach Towels, Swim Equipment, Pop up Cots and certain lines of luggage such as Trunki We also offer the facility of having your delivery sent straight to your holiday destination. This is particularly useful as under 2's get no baggage allowance, we offer a flat fee shipping charge within the EU regardless of weight. In the Autumn of 2011 we went into a JV a leading family friendly holiday company and we now manage there online shop

MY BUSINESS TIPS

Be as helpful and friendly as you can to your customers but you must know where to draw the line - no point in agreeing to something if you can't deliver. When expanding your product range etc - remember what your business is about. Repeat customers are your best customers. Some wholesalers / suppliers think they can dictate terms to you - avoid them

No more training do you require. Already know you, that which you need. #AngryBirdsStarWars http://t.co/L0v5qcAdp5
Do. Or do not. There is no fly. #AngryBirdsStarWars http://t.co/wl24u9godu
We've been away for a while but we're coming back - but there will be a difference
