Well that was a crazy four days. We are very glad that we avoided the rampant commercialism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
As we said last week, we believe in offering year round good value and the more eagle-eyed of you will have noticed small decreases in the prices of a good number of our pickups. This is because we have passed on the savings in the current forex to you.
Because forex varies, this does mean that the next time we replenish stock the price could rise; who knows? Check out the new prices here.
It’ll come as no surprise to regular visitors of this page that we’ve decided not to follow the masses down the Black Friday path; especially given Which has shown that only 5% of the so-called great deals offer lower prices than those found at some point earlier in the year.
Instead, here at Sandarac, we aim to offer good value all year round. Yes, we’ll do an occasional offer or promotion but those are few and far between.
We prefer to do right by our customers all year round. If you buy from us you won’t pay more than if you bought direct from the luthier. If forex means the price to us goes down we’ll pass the saving on to you rather than pocketing the difference.
After all, if a firm can offer you a 70+% discount and not make a loss think about what they make for the rest of the year…
With reports of doorstep thefts rising, we’re using today’s #WednesdayWisdom post to remind you why we send all our packages by Royal Mail signed for service.
The internet is a wonderful thing and has made it easier to shop even when you can’t get to the store. However, with Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Christmas on the horizon delivery drivers have even less time than usual and the temptation for them to just dump packages in the general vicinity of your door makes it all too easy for thieves to snatch those deliveries right from our doorsteps.
By using Royal Mail signed for, we guarantee that your parcel is handed to a person by the postie and, if for some reason it’s not you, we have a signature of who signed for it. Also, in the unlikely event that some scumbag signs for and steals your package in your absence, we will send you another free of charge and sort out the insurance claim for you.
We fully recognise that means we end up charging a bit more for postage than others. Therefore if you prefer that we send your parcel by regular first or second class post, and save yourself a bit on postage, we are happy to comply with your wishes. Please note, though, that this will be at your own risk and, should the parcel be lost in transit, we will not replace the item free of charge. If this is okay with you, just give us a call and we’ll organise it.
