We have found that it is really difficult to offer competitive freight over the Internet via a freight company. It’s fine if you have a bolt or a box but we have plants that don’t all have the same shape or the same needs.
The hardest thing is trying to fit plants of varying heights into a rigid pricing structure. It makes the website too difficult to run and maintain hence we do our own deliveries. We use a specialist vehicle and trailer and if the order gets larger we have a specialist transport company we subcontract out to.
We find our transport and our preferred contractor the cheapest way to ship your plants. However, we do need some notice and we try to organize multiple orders to be delivered at one time. This keeps our freight prices low.
If we can’t arrange multiple orders, don’t fret, we deliver anyway.
We try to deliver the following week after you place your order, but we ring you to let you know what’s going on. If we can do it earlier, we will.
If it’s urgent, please let us know. We can put it on our carrier, it may just cost a little more.
We are happy for you to pick up, browse, and choose your own plants!
