Very pleased to write that starting today! (March 5, 2021) the music boxes will also be delivered in the Netherlands with De Fietskoerier !!
It has been my plan to become a customer for some time, and now the time has finally come. When I called they said "We were already waiting for you!" Oh, yeah? .. how nice, I said then .. I appeared the same day in their internal newsletter as 'probably new customer' so that the bicycle couriers could already look forward to the soon to be delivered magic in a wooden box, made from a tree they may have passed countless times before !.
Well, I think it fits perfectly with what I make, something like that just has to be transported by bicycle, that increases the joy enormously!
Because just pay attention; You always get a smile when a bicycle courier hands over your package (or picks up, see below!)! .. a better prelude is not conceivable prior to unpacking: Even more cheerfulness: A music box made of city wood! (Often from the same city)
Looking in the eye
If you make something yourself, with a lot of attention and care, then it is an unprecedented gift that it is delivered with just as much attention and dedication, and I have noticed that De Fietskoerier does so with great enthusiasm.
Tobias, founder of De Fietskoeriers Utrecht says about this; "It is much nicer to receive a package that you look forward to, in a pleasant way - instead of it being thrown somewhere and the box having a dent." A Japanese courier once told him that there is attention in his country. “There is a moment when the delivery person hands over the package, the recipient takes it and they look each other in the eye for a moment. Only then do you let go. "
More than 700 bicycle couriers
The Fietskoerier is a national network to which more than 700 bicycle couriers are connected. For example, I have now become a customer at De Fietskoerier in Utrecht, they come to pick up the parcels from me and deliver them themselves in Utrecht and the surrounding area.
Packages for other cities go with a green gas car to the hub on the outskirts of the city, from there the local bicycle courier takes over and delivers the package to your home, often in the evening. Currently there are more than 30 cities + immediate surroundings where De Fietskoerier delivers. In rural areas and cities where bicycle couriers do not yet drive around, there is cooperation with DHL.
Watch a nice video of De Fietskoerier below, then you can see how that goes.
