It’s not a real Christmas without a real Christmas tree but collecting a six-foot Nordmann Fir on or in a beloved car can cause hundreds of pounds worth of damage, as needles and branches scratch the paintwork and pierce the leather. This year, car-lovers can give their car a break and order their tree online with free named-day or next-day delivery.
With Croft & Cole, customers can order a premium tree today and select a home-delivery date to suit, with orders beginning on 27th November. After then, they can also select the next-day delivery option to any mainland UK home.
The British-grown, hand-selected Nordmann Fir trees are chosen for their low-drop, soft and rounded needles, meaning very little mess in the house and they are safe for pets and children to walk on.
All trees are selected for their balanced 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 to give peace of mind that it will be the perfect centrepiece for Christmas celebrations.
The tree arrives in an easy-to-open bespoke hexagonal box. 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 ‘side of the road’ 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. Named-day/next-day delivery costs and VAT are included.
To make Christmas even easier, there is a selection of Christmas lights and water-holding stands to complement the Croft & Cole trees and, when bought together, there is no additional postage cost.
“My car is my pride and joy,” said Croft & Cole CEO Thomas Onslow-Cole. “There's no way I want to put a Christmas tree in it but I do love the smell and look of a real tree in our home. That's why we launched Croft & Cole - so that people could have the joy of a real tree without the hassle and mess.
