A wonderful advantage of wooden toys is their robust nature. It’s one of the many reasons we love them. They are the kind of things you buy for your children and one day hope that they pass onto their children. After all how many of us know Grandparents that get out their wooden toys from their childhood for their Grandchildren.
The unfortunate thing behind the advantage of their strength is their weight. Again, not a bad thing in their day to day use, but for shipping from Wood and Wonder to you, well that can present a problem. We work hard to try and keep the costs of postage down. It’s why we introduced a weight based system on our website. It allows our lighter items to be posted for less! Services that cost less are slower and in our busy lives sometimes we just want our order right now! This is why we have introduced a speedy, tracked delivery service, with a 1 hour delivery slot so you don’t have to wait in all day long only to have your parcel arrive at 4:59pm!
Those of you in the UK can now select the DPD delivery service in your basket. Prices start at £7.80 for 1-2 day DPD tracked delivery with a 1 hour delivery slot.
We are also going to add the opportunity to leave a message for your courier, for example if they can leave it in a safe place. This is mainly for myHermes.
We’ve had a few messages in the past asking if we are able to post to Europe. Well I’m now pleased to say that this feature has now been added into our online shop for a selection of European countries. The full list can be found on our terms and conditions page, however you can simply select which country you are in on the shopping basket page when selecting your delivery.
Up to 2kg we can post using Royal Mail International Standard post (at the UK end of course) which takes between 3 and 5 days from dispatch. The alternative for heavier orders is DPD taking around 2 to 5 days from dispatch with all (except Austria, Sweden, Slovenia, Denmark and Latvia) offering a 1 hour delivery slot.
That’s all for now.
