The other day, I saw Mariah Carey unfreeze, announcing the impending Holidays. Yes, once again, the season of gift shopping, hot chocolate, and ugly sweaters is upon us. Time to find that box of ornaments in the garage and get festive! And it is time for you to get your custom swing set from King Swings ordered!
If you are considering buying a vinyl swing set for your family this year, this blog post will lay out the vital information you need to know about Christmas swing sets and playhouse deliveries!
Why A Swing Set for Christmas
“Hey, buddy,” you say, “It’s winter. No one gets a swing set for Christmas.”
That is where you are wrong. A surprising amount of families all over the US opt for a swing set for Christmas, and they are on to something! Here are some of the best reasons to get a swing set for Christmas:
- It is a stunning gift that will blow their little minds!
- It helps get the kids outside during the winter months!
- You are ahead of the spring rush and long lead times.
- The swing set is already in place for spring; there is no waiting for delivery!
- If you were planning on a swing set this year, this saves you the cost of additional gifts. Don’t worry, we won’t tell the kids.
There are more reasons to get a swing set during the winter than just that list above. Think about all the fun of having a snowball fight on your swing set or sliding down the slide into a snowman! There are all kinds of fun to be had on a swing set in the winter and trust me, your kids are creative enough to find it!
Furthermore, as a dad, I know that winter doesn’t magically remove the need for my kids to get outside. It can be a challenge to get them outside during this time of year, but a swing set or playhouse can help with that by providing a ready-made place for them to spend their energy!
“But,” you argue, “Isn’t winter hard on the swing sets?”
That is a good question! The answer is this: our swing sets can take it! With stainless steel or zinc-covered hardware, pressure-treated wood, our vinyl sleeve, and our quality construction, our swing sets can handle what winter puts down.
Before Christmas Deliveries
What do you need to know about before Christmas swing set and playhouse deliveries? Here are several important pieces of information that you need to know!
First Come, First Serve
Unfortunately, we do not deliver and install our swing sets and playhouses in a magical sleigh with unlimited space. We tried it with Elmer’s buggy but quickly realized it would drastically increase delivery times.
The reality is that there is limited space on each truckload. We reserve the spots on a first-come, first-serve basis, so do not delay! Get your order in!
Before Christmas swing set or playhouse deliveries can be pushed off if bad weather arises. If a sudden massive snow or ice storm makes the roads treacherous or buries your backyard in snow, we must delay your installation. We will do our best to hold to Christmas timelines, but we need to keep our guys safe as well.
If Santa would lend us Rudolph and a bit of magic, then it could be a different discussion, but as it stands, Christmas deliveries are weather-dependent.
The sooner you get your order in, the more likely you can get it as close to Christmas as possible. If you wait, other orders will dictate the location of the routes, and you may have to receive them earlier in the month or after Christmas.
The sooner you place your order, the more we can work with you on a date.
King Swings wants to help make this a magical Christmas for you and your family! If you choose to give the gift of sliding, climbing, and time together outside, we urge you to do it sooner rather than later for us to get you in before Christmas!
