CLOSED BANK HOLIDAYS FOR COLLECTIONS OR DROP OFFS
Unfortunately we have had to stop drop offs / collections in a morning due to the late arrival of some of our boarders... whilst we appreciate that problems arise especially when you are preparing to go on holiday - this often means that we run late for getting to work ourselves. As this is not sustainable we have taken the decision to only accept birds in the evening when we get home from work.
We appreciate that this would mean an extra days payment in some cases so we have decided to now only charge for the number of nights that your birds are now here (basically your collection day is now free to offset the 1st nights charge).
Drop Off & Collection Arrangements
During Covid we were forced to work with a non contact drop off and collection arrangement. It worked so well and with such positive feedback that we have decided to continue with the same procedure moving forward.
Once booking has been paid for we will email you the details of where to drop your girls off. Please leave them in their carrier in the safe place as arranged. We will keep your carrier whilst you are away and your girls will be put back in their carrier ready for collection for you from the same location at the time arranged.
