Frequently Asked Questions

 

What Size Wagon Should I Order?

Which carriage will work best for certain ages?

Which wagons will hold more then one child?

I’ll do my best to guide your choices according to the experience I have.

Some general things to consider:

  • The impression you wish the wagon and child to make. The larger the wagon, the more of a presence it will have.
  • What you want in the wagon with the child, such as flowers, pillows, or anything else. If the wagon is filled with the child, there won’t be room for much else.
  • An older or larger child will not fit in the smaller wagons, but a small child will do fine in a larger wagon. When a smaller child sits in a larger wagon, they tend to sit more in the middle.
  • What do you have in mind to do with the wagon after the event? A young child will soon outgrow the smaller wagons, so you may want a larger one that the child could use for some years.

The Flower Girl Pumpkin Wagon series

  1. Small size – infants do well in this size, up to about a year old.
  2. Medium size – Two infants could sit in this one, but would have to be facing each other, one at each end, or the one in front could be straddled by the child in the back. This size works well for a single child up to about 3 – 4 years old.
  3. Large size – Excellent for two toddlers side by side sitting in the rear of the wagon. This would easily carry a single elementary school age child. Some of the photos show 3 and even 4 babes in this size.
  4. Extra Large size – This wagon is the same length as the large size, but is wider. This will hold 3 children, or even 4. And there is room for older children.

The Carriage series:

Small Angel Carriage – Specially designed for infants from newborn to about 2 years old.

Large Angel Carriage – Same design as the Small Angel, but a good bit larger. this will hold 2 – 3 children or older ones.

Charming Carriage – Good for smaller children that can sit by themselves. This is wide enough for 2 young ones side by side.

Snow White Carriage, and Royal Carriage – These two are basically the same size. We offer safety rails as an upgrade option for smaller children that you are concerned may topple out. This is an ideal size for younger elementary school age children, and the Royal Carriage is made to hold two, one above the other, or side by side. The Snow White Carriage may also be able to hold two, depending on their size.

Princess Carriage – A beautiful Carriage for young teens, or even older ones. Very strong and built for weight.

How does my Flower Girl Pumpkin Wagon come, assembled or in pieces?

How hard is it to assemble? 

 

Detailed instructions with photos are included with each wagon.

Because of rough handling during shipping, the Flower Girl Pumpkin Wagons are shipped in 6 pieces, along with the 4 wheels.

The assembly is quite easy, involving about 14- 16 Philips head bolts that you push through pre-drilled holes in the wagon parts, and screw into recessed “T nuts” that are embedded in the wood.

The wheels are fastened to the axles with 6″ hex head lag bolts, into pre – drilled holes.

The last step is bolting the tongue on with one small bolt.

All hardware is provided, and the only tools you will need are :

  • phillips head screwdriver. (One with a long handle makes the job easier.)
  • An adjustable wrench or socket to turn in the lags for the wheels, and the tongue bolt.

And, as always – I’m just a phone call away if you have any difficulty.

Detailed instructions with photos are included with each wagon.

The Angel and Charming Carriages are shipped UPS in a box with the carriage bodies fully assembled. (The Tongue and wheels are removed from the body for shipping.)

The assembly is very easy.

The wheels will need to be fastened to the axles with 6″ hex head lag bolts, into pre – drilled holes.

Bolt the tongue on with one small bolt.

All hardware is provided, and the only tool you will need is :

  • An adjustable wrench or socket to turn in the lags for the wheels, and the tongue bolt.

The Snow White, Royal, and Princess Carriages are shipped fully assembled (except the tongue) and are on a pallet. These are too large to ship via UPS in a box, so must ship by freight.

How Soon Will A Wagon Be Shipped?

Wedding just around the corner, and concerned about getting your wagon in time?

Relax, we can get our wedding wagons shipped out very quickly. I’m in Western North Carolina, so regular UPS ground time must be considered. They figure about 5 business days to ship from here to the West Coast, and about 2 days to NY & NJ. If there is a rush, we can ship UPS next day or second day air. (To discuss a rush order, and get shipping quotes, contact Ed).

IMPORTANT: If you need the wagon sooner than what our normal handling times permit, We can ship wagons out very quickly. Simply contact Ed to discuss faster handling & shipping options.

The  Flower Girl Pumpkin Wagons, Angel Carriages, and Charming Carriage can ship in less then a week if necessary, but we do appreciate more lead time if possible. A few weeks is ideal. The Snow White Carriage & Royal Carriage take longer, so try to give us more time for these larger ones.

The Princess Carriage takes quite a bit more time, so  we need at least 4 – 6 weeks lead time, more if possible.
