Chandelier Refurbishment

With the passing of the Christmas season you may be looking at your chandelier and thinking it is looking a little tired and sorry for it’s self.  Refurbishing your chandelier does not need to be expensive as it is not a full restoration, just a little TLC.

If you didn’t get a chance to clean your chandelier in the lead up to the festive season this can instantly transform the chandelier.  It also gives you a chance to check over the chandelier to make sure that all the crystals are in place and undamaged; you will also be able to see any that need re-pinning.

Replacing the odd crystal does not need to be expensive, we do not have a minimum order value on our website and our chandelier pins are available in small cost effective packs as well as larger quantities for a full chandelier restoration.  Dependant on the chandelier crystals and buttons that you are looking for you will find in both our antique  and modern chandelier parts that some are available in pack sizes as well as singles.

Whilst cleaning your chandelier you can check to see if any of the candle tubes need replacing or you may wish to change the style and colour of your candle tubes to revitalise the look of your chandelier – again you do not need to place a minimum order our candle tubes are available in singles as well.

Of course when cleaning your chandelier check your bulbs are all working correctly.

REMEMBER when cleaning your chandelier ensure the electrical supply is switched off, do not expose the electrics to liquids and move yourself and your ladder around the chandelier do not turn the chandelier to you – you may unscrew the fixings.

Royal Mail Proposed Industrial Action – CANCELLED

Further to our blog yesterday, below, advising our customers that we were preparing to ensure that orders would be dispatched during proposed Royal Mail Industrial Action we are pleased to advise that Royal Mail have advised that the action has been cancelled following their High Court action and so it is business as usual.

We will of course continue to monitor this and are signed up to receive regular updates of any disruptions that may be caused in the future by either industrial action, bad weather etc to ensure that disruption to our customers is as limited as possible.

Original blog post:-

It has been in the news during the last week that industrial action is planned by Royal Mail workers for 48 hours commencing 19th October 2017 and we have been following this at King’s Chandelier Services Ltd, like many other internet sales companies, since the action was announced.

To try and minimise disruption to our customers we have been in discussions with Royal Mail and courier companies.  At present Royal Mail are advising that whilst the action has been announced it may not be carried out, they have taken the matter to the High Court and await the ruling on this.  Their website advises that should the action go ahead they do have a contingency plan in place BUT they have not yet announced what those plans are!

If the worst case scenario of the dispute taking place occurs we have been advised as a business that Royal Mail will not collect our post on Thursday 19th October and Friday 20th October  and this is what we are basing our contingency on until Royal Mail publicise their own plans.

If you are placing an order with King’s Chandelier Services Ltd that you require for the latter part of next week we would recommend that you try and place your order as soon as possible to allow dispatch before any postal disruptions begin.  We would expect that it will take Royal Mail a few days to catch up on themselves following any industrial actions and we are awaiting confirmation of any disruption caused to post dispatched mid-week.

We have already spoken to several courier companies and we will, where possible, use a courier to dispatch orders.  If you have any questions as to when you may receive your order if you need to place it in the lead up to this proposed industrial action or during any postal dispute please telephone us, 01206-332938, so that we can discuss your personal requirements and ensure that the disruption to you is as limited as possible.  If we are unable to take your call please leave a message on our answerphone so that we can call you back.

As Royal Mail update on the position of this proposed industrial action we will update this post.
