We know you can’t wait to get your new plantation shutters installed. The anticipation, the build-up – it can all be a bit too much for some customers to wait the 9 to 11 weeks it typically takes for your plantation shutters to arrive. In that case, Express Delivery is the answer!
That’s why, for those shutter shoppers who simply cannot wait to receive them, we offer an Express Delivery service for all products.
What are Express Shutters?
Put simply – Express Shutters are the exact same shutters, just delivered via our weekly train freight shipments, versus arriving via our sea containers.
We manufacture our plantation shutters at our exclusive facility in China. This is a state of the art facility conforming to required standards which manufactures several containers worth of shutters every week.
Shipping shutters by sea container is the most cost-effective way to bring your customer made plantation shutters from our facility to your door. However, this process does take around 5 weeks port to port. Add on a 2-3 weeks for manufacture, plus an extra few days for your final delivery, and that is why ordering shutters via standard delivery can take almost 3 months end-to-end.
With our Express Delivery service, we still manufacture shutters in the same time frame but they are sent to the UK via train, instead of sea. This cuts the overall dispatch timescale down from 9-11 weeks to just 6-8 weeks!
We have made the conscious decision to no longer use air freight as an speedier option. Whilst this can shave a further week or two off our train freight service, it just isn't right for us from an environmental point of view. Air freight also involves lots of additional handling and we have proven that goods are significantly less likely to be damages if shipped safely in a sea or train freight container.
