Q. What is the difference between budget and standard collection?
Budget collection enables you to save some money by undressing the tree and leaving it outside for one of our team to collect. Our Standard Collection option provides a bit more support in that we will come into the house or office and remove the tree for you. So you don't have to do any heavy lifting. We do however ask that you undress the tree beforehand and remove it from it's stand.
