Suddenly half term has been and gone, you’ve put the heating on and the days are starting to get shorter. Time, then, to start thinking about the festive season.

At Wonkee Donkee Richard Burbidge we always see a surge in sales during November and December as home owners decide to revamp their entrance hall and stairs in time for Christmas. However, some might be left disappointed if they leave it till the last minute. It pays to plan ahead, especially if you want stair parts from non-standard ranges such as Heritage, which have longer lead times. Delivery close to Christmas can also sometimes take longer as roads become more congested.

Don’t overlook the installation process, either. Skilled tradesmen are likely to be particularly busy at this time of year, and will need to be booked well in advance. And you may want to redecorate the hallway afterwards – definitely not a job to leave until Christmas Eve!

We can usually deliver standard stair parts within 2-3 working days, depending on where you live, but would recommend allowing extra time during busy periods. So if you’re thinking of sprucing up your stairs, don’t delay – have a browse through our site and place your order in plenty of time.
