Bicycle delivery service saving Christmas for the busy and lazy

Getting a Christmas tree home for the kids every year usually takes some kind of effort, unless you have one of those plastic trees that you just need to plug in for lighting. But now, you can be lazy, or too busy, and enjoy a real tree.

Three entrepreneurs have teamed up to form Julebudet (the Christmas messenger), which will prepare and deliver a Christmas tree to your doorstep on a bicycle. They'll even lug it up the stairs to your apartment.

"The idea is that we appeal to families and companies who don't have the time and energy to go and get a tree themselves," Frederik Bidstrup, one of the three entrepreneurs, told Metroxpress newspaper.

"We attach a base to the Christmas tree, drive it out and carry it up to the customer so it's ready to be decorated."

Three tree sizes
The company drives the trees out to their customers on cargo bikes that can transport 2-3 trees at a time, and although the concept just kicked off a few days ago with five sales so far, the company hopes to have serviced around a hundred customers during December.

Julebudet (here's their site in Danish only) operate in Copenhagen and offer three Christmas tree sizes from 150-250 centimetres, while prices range from 299-399 kroner – delivery cost and base included.

"We've bought 50 Christmas trees so far, so we'll have to see how it goes," Bidstrup said.
