Collecting a real Christmas tree from a 'side of the road retailer' can be difficult, pushing some people towards plastic. However, a new company has launched that enables all mainland UK homes to have a real traditional tree delivered to their door with free next-day or named-day delivery.
At croftandcole.com, customers can order a grade-A Christmas tree and select a delivery date to suit, starting from the 27th November 2019 and running until 21st December 2019. If ordered before 12pm, customers will qualify for free next-day delivery.
The British-grown, hand-selected Nordmann Fir trees are chosen for their low-drop, soft and rounded needles, meaning there is very little mess. And, when a rare needle does drop, it’s safe for children and pets.
Each tree is hand-selected for its balanced conical shape; even proportions (without any holes or gaps); and perfect needle colour and sheen. Only the top Christmas trees are selected for the Croft & Cole collection, so customers get peace-of-mind that the tree they receive is the perfect centrepiece for their Christmas celebrations.
The tree arrives in an easy-to-open bespoke hexagonal box. Customers simply place the tree in the desired location, pull the easy-tear tabs, and the wardrobe-like doors open to reveal a premium netted Christmas tree. Sizes range from four-foot to seven-and a-half-foot and, unlike most retailers, Croft & Cole sells in half-foot sizes to make sure each tree fits perfectly in the desired location.
Prices start at £63 for a four-foot tree and go up to £103 for a seven and a half-foot, with the most common choice, the six-foot tree, costing £85. Next-day delivery costs and VAT are included.
Thomas Onslow-Cole, CEO and founder of Croft & Cole, commented: “Christmas is the one time of the year that we are really able to cherish our traditions. While life throughout the year is rapidly changing, Christmas is the time to slow down and go back and find comfort in the familiar . This is why we wanted to make sure the tradition of having a real tree inside our homes isn't lost - for us, Christmas isn't Christmas without the look and smell of fir.”
To make Christmas even easier, there is a selection of lights and stands to complement the Croft & Cole trees and there is no additional postage cost.
