With a mere few weeks to Christmas, here’s our handy guide to your key order dates with WBC this Christmas. Any questions we haven’t thought of, tweet us, Facebook us, email us, or phone us on 08000 85 85 95. We’re here to help!

HOW BIG IS MY BOX?

Find essential information about products online, like how much shred to use in your Christmas hamper, as well as box sizes and pack quantities. You’ll also find how-to guides, additional information and inspiration on our social channels and the blog.

CAN I ORDER SAMPLES?

Using the zoom functions on our website will help you see product quality, finish and detail. If you still want to see a sample, call us on 08000 85 85 95 and we’ll be happy to organise them – but please allow 3 to 4 days for delivery. We are unable to offer samples on some products* due to their nature. Please contact our Customer Service team for further information.

ADDING TO OR CHANGING ORDERS

To keep our service at lightning speed, your order is taken on screen and immediately transferred to the warehouse for picking and packing. It’s then loaded onto trailers which leave as soon as they’re full, making it difficult to stop it, add to it, or change it. Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten something off your order, call us and we’ll do our best to help you.

BE THERE FOR DELIVERY

Make sure your order is sent to a manned delivery address. We would love to be able to offer you guaranteed timed delivery slots, but as this is a business to business courier account, deliveries are made during office hours 9am & 6pm.

CAN I COLLECT?

Of course you can! But this needs to be arranged with our sales team in advance. Contact our office on 020 7737 9516 so we can provide you with the correct collection details.
