Woolybus fleet lists updated     Date added: 02/04/2020
 
Woolybus fleet lists updated

We at Woolybus are pleased to announce an update has been undertaken on the fleet lists that we have on our web site, with the updated fleet lists now available.

There were no notable changes reflected in this latest update, although we do hope to be able to cover the National Express acquisition of Lucketts Group with the next update.

To purchase the updated fleet lists, either place your order through our web site, or call us on 020-8593 2727 or 07572-788744.

Coronavirus update     Date added: 30/03/2020
 
Coronavirus update

We at Woolybus have a number of announcements to make in relation to the currently coronavirus outbreak, and how it has affected operations at Woolybus. Detailed below are a number of changes that we have made or will be making in the near future as a result of this.

2020 FirstGroup Fleet Book
Unfortunately, due to the current coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend the forthcoming 2020 FirstGroup Fleet Book until after things have got back to normal. Due to the nature of this outbreak, we cannot give any details of a timescale on the release of this title.

This has also affected our intentions with the fortcoming 2020 Anglia and East Midlands book, and the 2020 Go-Ahead Fleet Book which have also been suspended until further notice. These books will however follow after the FirstGroup book once normality resumes.

While the coronavirus has affected the production of our fleet books, it doesn't mean that we will not be producing any books during that time. We have a couple of ideas which we are discussing about putting into production, and will update in due course on those.

Attending bus rallies
Understandably, as a result of the Government advice and guidelines, the bus rally calendar for 2020 has been absolutely descimated, particularly up until the summer. This coming weekend, we were due to attend two bus rallies, one at Detling on Saturday 4th April, and the other at Brooklands on Sunday 5th April. This caused us to have an idea of if we can't get you to the rallies, then we'll bring the rally special offers to you.

From 8am on Saturday 4th April until 8pm on Sunday 5th April, we will have a wide range of special offers on the web site for our books, models and anything else that we would have had for sale on our stall at these events. There will however be a small postage charge on all orders under 150, and will advise of those details on Friday (3rd April).

Models, PSV Circle news sheets and LOTS publications
We have recently taken into stock a large amount of models, PSV Circle news sheets, publications from the London Omnibus Traction Society, as well as a number of DVDs. Due to the volume, it is taking us some time to get these added onto the web site although we aim to have at least the models and LOTS publications listed on the web site by the weekend for the "rally" event. Details of what models there are and their pricing will also be found on our web site.

With all that is going on, first and foremost we wish that you all keep yourselves in good health, and most of all, follow the Government advice of staying home, helping to protect the NHS and as a result, save lives. Keep yourselves safe.

Increase to postage charges     Date added: 21/03/2020
 
Increase to postage charges

With effect of Monday 23rd March 2020, Royal Mail are increasing their prices to send items. While we at Woolybus have done our best to freeze postage prices, unfortunately we have found ourselves having to increase some of the prices that we charge for postage and packing, which are effective with immediate effect.

The pricing changes that we have made are as follows:

For orders totalling 49.99 or under:
Royal Mail 1st Class Standard increases from 3.50 to 4.00
Royal Mail Signed For increases from 4.50 to 5.00

For orders totalling between 50.00 and 149.99:
Royal Mail 1st Class Standard increaes from 5.50 to 6.00
Royal Mail Signed For increases from 6.50 to 7.00

Special Delivery (next day) charges will remain as they are, as will charges for delivery by DPD courier.

Our books are also affected by this increase in postage charges, with postage and packing now increasing from 1.50 per book (included within the price at the checkout) to 2.00 per book.

Further details of these pricing details can be found on our Delivery page.
