Orlando-based startup can install your X-Mas tree

0

UCF grad student Jerry Jasmin knows how hard it is to get a Christmas tree in your Downtown condo. He knows the pain of negotiating an Uber-delivered spruce through a lobby and up 10 floors in an elevator and then trying to find the perfect spot in your condo to precariously lean your holiday centerpiece. He’s done it himself.

So, with years of customer service skills acquired from working at the Ritz, Jasmin launched a service to help you with that. Because it’s 2017 and there’s an app for that, is our new mantra.

Tree Drop (Facebook |¬†Website) is an Orlando-based service that will deliver and install trees in your home for you. Designed for Downtown living, the new business serves the entire Orlando Metro area and doesn’t necessarily discriminate based on the height of your home.

All you do is enter your zip code, choose the size of the tree you want, and schedule your delivery. For an added fee, Tree Drop will also take down and remove your tree at the end of the holidays.

They offer same-day delivery for orders that are made before 10 a.m. Deliveries are made between 8 a.m.-8 p.m. seven days a week.

This is their first year of operation so they’ve focused on one type of tree, North Carolina Fraser Firs, for 2017. Prices start at $159.99 for a five foot tree with delivery and installation included.

Shoppers can also add poinsettias, tree stands, and wreaths to their online orders.
