Special Handling Instrument Delivery (Double Basses & Cellos) within the next 5 working days
This delivery is a ‘white-glove’ service carried out by us using our own staff and specially fitted out, climate-controlled van. The reason we use our own van and staff for the delivery of cellos and double basses is these items are very fragile and the damage risk with parcel companies is far too great. Double basses and cellos are also oversize for most parcel companies. We deliver to most UK mainland postcodes. If your postcode is not covered we may have alternative delivery runs that are less frequent on which we can include your delivery, if this is the case, please contact us, we will be happy to advise you.
Unfortunately, we cannot provide this delivery free of charge due to the cost of operating it, the delivery charge is calculated at checkout based on your location. We hope that it gives you peace of mind that your cello or double bass will arrive in the best condition directly from our luthier workshop.
When your order is placed we will contact you to arrange the day of delivery. The day before your delivery you will receive an email and/or a text message with a two hour time window of when your delivery will arrive. On the delivery day, when our van is underway, you will receive another email/text with an accurate live ETA and the option to track our van on a map which is updated live.
