Special Occasion Linen in partnership with our trusted courier APC Overnight has greatly enhanced our delivery service by introducing what3words locations.

what3words makes it easy to find locations that are difficult to find. This means that customers who use what3words to determine where their event linen order should be delivered, can rest assured that it will arrive at that exact location. Customers can specify precise locations, such as building entrances, and locations that don’t exist as a regular address. This is particularly useful for outdoor event venues that are located in temporary locations, for example a marquee in a field, park or garden, and those notoriously difficult to find places that are off the beaten track.

How it works

Street addresses and postcodes don't always point to precise locations.

A postcode can cover quite a large area which means it’s not always easy for delivery drivers to find an address. This is where the what3words website and app comes in. what3words have given every 3m square in the world a unique 3 word address. The words are randomly assigned to each square and will always stay the same. Using the website or app it’s easy to find and share any location with just three words.

How can you use it?

When you next make a booking simply tell the member of our team handling your booking that you’d like to use what what3words.

They will ask you to give a what3words address so our couriers can find you more easily and faster. It will save everyone time and avoid any frustrating phone calls trying to locate the place you’d like your order delivered to or collected from.
