anyone know how long it usually takes for them to arrive once you have been invoiced/paid roughly?

 

Not that long.  I ordered several custom boards earlier in the year and although it took a couple of months to find a slot for production, I wasn't invoiced until they were effectively ready for shipping.  I think I had them within a week of receiving and paying the invoice.

Just looking back at my e-mails, I received and paid my invoice from Tim on the morning of Thursday 2nd May, and I have an earlier e-mail that stated he hoped my boards would be ready for collection by the courier company on Friday 3rd May and that delivery to me would therefore most likely be Tuesday 7th May or shortly thereafter.  I can't actually remember whether my boards were delivered on the Tuesday or the Wednesday of that week, but ultimately the day that TNT chose to deliver the consignment was obviously outwith his control.  All I can confirm is that they were received within a week of me paying, which is pretty good service.

 

I'd therefore assume that you should receive your boards soon - probably on Monday.

Hello Down_Under,

I live in Queensland south of Brisbane and earlier this year I followed up the issue of importing plywood laser cut baseboards from Tim Horn into Oz from the U.K. with the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources and it is my understanding, following the links and advice given in their response, that both plywood and MDF are permitted to be imported into the country under the description of a “Wooden Product”.

There is a responsibility for the Manufacturer and/or Supplier to provide details of the product and source materials and the importer to provide this information to the department for review and appropriate authorisation.

I haven’t approached Tim yet with this information due to website updates. His old website stated the only country he could not expert to is Australia. I don’t think that is now the correct, although some additional documentation may be necessary to be able to export to Oz.

 

I would be interested to know how you get on if you are already in communication with Tim.

 

Roger

Tim is hoping his new website will be available early in the New Year but there is a lot of work to do on it, as well as fulfilling orders and he's only a one man band so patience is needed.

Hi,

 

Is Tim currently incommunicado, his website is in limbo but no other untoward indication?

 

Just asking

Send him an email if you need him. His old website was deactivated (not by choice) and he is in the process of making a new one but it will take time as he has to fit it in around existing orders and making money to eat.

Hi,

 

Tim just responded, the email address seems to have changed.

 

Now, a happy bunny.

I have also had excellent service from Tim (and about to do some more in the new year).  My last order arrived promptly, and contained a hand written note thanking me for my business.  Now, how many suppliers do that? :good_mini:

In addition to import restrictions there's also the issue of the high shipping cost to Australia, although that might be offset by a VAT rebate if Tim is registered. I drew up my own baseboard design in Inkscape and had them laser cut locally, which worked out a bit cheaper than Tim's UK prices.

Was just about to email Tim about some new boards, when I saw this message from about 6 weeks ago on his Facebook page:

We have had to take the difficult decision not to take on any more orders as of this week. We have plenty of wood, machines are working but the one thing I do not have is time.

 

I’ve several outstanding bespoke orders to get through, plus orders for kits which I am going to concentrate on clearing our full order book, and our best estimate is that it will be 4 months before we can start accepting orders again. We will work on the new website as well.

 

I have cleared all outstanding 'paid for' orders and will now only take payment on an order by order basis.

We are very sorry about this, If you have any queries, please email or message me.

 

Keep safe and keep well. Let’s hope Covid-19 is defeated soon.

 

 

Looks like he's in the enviable position of having too much work!

He is being realistic about things though, so everybody knows where they stand.
