Christmas decorations are the perfect way to brighten up even the dullest of offices, and are ideal for bringing some festive cheer to employees in December. But if you find yourself tiring of bringing out the same tired tree year after year, it might be time for a change. Hiring a Christmas tree is often a wise choice for organisations looking to broaden their decorating horizons, but choosing the right company to rent from can often prove challenging. Here I give you a few tips on how to find the perfect Christmas tree for your business.
Check their track record
Not all Christmas tree companies have the same high levels of customer service, so make sure you do your research before splashing out on the perfect tree. They may not admit it, but some companies are very slow at delivery- I have a friend who ordered a tree for her office, and turned up on Christmas Eve as her employees were leaving the building! Look for a service with a history of reliability and promptness to ensure that your tree will turn up on time to be enjoyed by everyone. And don’t forget, the company should also collect the tree at the end of the holiday season.
Price isn’t everything
Granted, if you are a small business with a limited budget you are going to be looking for a tree that is attractive but above all affordable. Christmas tree hire companies often provide a cheaper option that will still brighten up your workplace. However, you should always remember that you get what you pay for in life, and sometimes you have to splash out a bit more to get the right effect. In fact, for large corporations that want to make a statement- like shopping centres and hotels- you can choose a bespoke service to create the perfect look. This will come at a price, but the effect will be worth it.
All of us are environmentally conscious nowadays, but businesses in particular have a responsibility to think about the impact they have on the world. If you are worried about the environmental implications of your Christmas tree hire, look for a provider that recycles all trees after they have been collected. Real trees can be shredded with the chippings recycled, whilst artificial trees can be used again the following year after a quick refurbishment. Even the greenest of eco warriors cannot complain about this method of disposal!
The dreaded Health and Safety talk may be tiresome but unfortunately is also a necessity to protect your employees and your customers from harm. When choosing your Christmas tree hire company, pick one that offer a Risk Assessment and Method statement when installing your tree. This will ensure that your decorations do not obstruct any walkways, fire exits, or important notice boards. In addition, choose a tree that is flame retardant, and ensure that any LED lights are inspected before installation. All these steps will help you enjoy Christmas with complete peace of mind.
