  • POSTING OF PRICES ON THE WEBSITE - After much serious consideration, we at That Wicker Guy, have reversed our long standing policy of not posting prices on the website. The major factor is, again, the rising gas prices. Driving from shop to shop and antique mall to antique mall is becoming more prohibitive every day. Our customer base is relying more and more on internet-based shopping and tell us that they want to have prices available to assist them in their shopping activities. So, in order to assist with the shopping experience, we are now posting prices for every item in our inventory.

    We still encourage calls and emails to discuss the items, and to provide additional information, and to just work with you as you formulate your decorating plans. Decorators, designers and dealers are encouraged to call to discuss "To the Trade" options.

    GAS PRICES, SHIPPING AND WICKER- As gas prices continue to increase, shipping becomes more and more of an issue. We are working hard to provide the best services at the most economical prices. Options for you to consider are:

  • GREYHOUND PACKAGE EXPRESS is still the most economical way to ship most wicker pieces. Small tables, single chairs and rockers, and loveseats lend themselves to GPX. Shipping is to a Greyhound (or affiliate) terminal near you. You then have to pick up the package at the terminal. Many terminals are reducing hours and many smaller ones have closed. Also Greyhound appears to be running smaller buses with smaller storage compartments, meaning that only smaller packages can be accommodated. We will continue to utilize GPX services whenever it is practical, but only with proactive communication with Greyhound and with you to ensure a smooth and trouble-free shipping experience.

  • USHIP at USHIP.COM provides another option for shipping. This internet based service allows us (or anyone) to post the details of a shipment. That info is then available to thousands of shippers who have registered to view such info. Those shippers (large or small, corporate or individual) who are interested can then offer a bid for the shipment. There are many factors to consider, but generally shipments to and from active, busy areas get the most and best bids. If the shipment has a flexible time schedule, it will often have better offers. Also, generally, larger orders are more economical than smaller ones. Usually the shippers who bid can provide blanket wrapping, special care, and delivery to your door. The fees here are continually climbing, but are usually less than the shipping companies that require that the piece be crated. We are increasing our utilization of this shipping option.

  • PRIVATE SHIPPER - We utilize the services of a select few private shippers who will carefully blanket wrap and deliver your wicker to your door. Generally we can ship quickly with the private shippers, but as fuel prices continue to escalate, they are looking to make more cost effective consolidated runs on a regular basis, monthly or less if possible. Again, a larger shipment is more economical (per piece) than a small one. We like using this option with shippers who have a good track record with us, and will continue to recommend this option for your shipment.
