As most of us are ramping up the preparations for the Christmas and New Year festivities, other dates on the calendar are also demanding our attention. Most resellers and retailers will already have plans in place for Burn’s Night in January, and Valentine’s Day in February.  However, one of the most important dates in the first half of the year falls between those two.

The Long and the Tall of Delivering Artificial Trees

Published on 9 May 2014 by in Facilities

Shipping full-size artificial trees is less problematic than you might think, even if sometimes it requires some meticulous measuring. For the majority of our customers, the topic of shipping their product revolves around, “Can it be here on xyz date?”, or, “How much will the shipping cost?”.  But for a small yet significant group of customers, the lead questions revolve around, “Is it possible to make abc and get it shipped to xyz?” and what such a transport operation involves.  The latter group are mainly landscape installers – both interior and exterior – and come to TreeLocate for the large
