A Thermomix as a gift is one of the nicest presents one can receive. Why? Well, since it’s one appliance that does it all; chopping, mixing, mincing, grinding, kneading, whipping, and juicing, as well as cooking, stirring, and weighing ingredients; then it’s really the only thing you would need in the kitchen.
There really is nothing really like a Thermomix as a wedding gift, housewarming present, for a new baby, or for a big birthday because this kitchen workhorse will be useful several times a week and they last forever. Not to mention the great fun newlyweds or new parents will enjoy together cooking and eating well. Remember, a Thermomix will replace more than 20- other kitchen appliances and will replace all other appliances; say goodbye to your blender, juicer, coffee grinder, food processor, grater, kitchen scales, mincer, mixer, bread maker, ice cream maker and so much more! It cooks and steams. There really is no other appliance on the market that even comes close to offering you the benefits and value you will enjoy with a Thermomix!
I am often asked how to process a gift order, so I thought I’d write a quick blog post giving you step-by-step of all scenarios.
Whether the Thermomix is for you or a loved one, I always advise buying through an Advisor. There are many reasons, all of which I have listed in this previous listing. No matter who the end customer is or where they live, they will be fully supported by me. Since COVID, we have successfully sold all over the UK and I host regularly zoom demonstrations and classes with my team.
Purchases from the UK office can only deliver within the UK, so here is the process will differ where the purchaser resides.
If the purchaser and end-user live in the UK
We create an order using the purchaser’s bank billing address and then the end user’s name, address, email, and mobile phone number for delivery. We need all these details as the Thermomix is delivered using a courier service, DPD, and they send a one-hour delivery window text to the recipient.
To create an order, I will need either to process your order over the phone or if you prefer, I can also arrange a proforma invoice and create a pay-by-link (PBL) for you to pay. This is the easiest and quickest way to process an order, as we can do it on my online Advisor portal but I believe in consumer choice, so whatever you feel most comfortable with, is what we will do.
The purchaser will receive the invoice so the end-user doesn’t see the price, but since the appliance is in their name, they can access all Thermomix user benefits, such as the demonstration and ongoing support with me, cooking classes both online and face-to-face at the local branches, warranty, etc.
If the purchaser is abroad but the end-user lives in the UK
We still need to create an order using the purchaser’s bank billing address and then the end user’s name, address, email, and mobile phone number for delivery. We need all these details as the Thermomix is delivered using a courier service, DPD, and they send a one-hour delivery window text to the recipient.
However, the online portal is not available to those living abroad. We can only do these types of orders via proforma invoice and depending on where you live, can do a pay-by-link as above, or a bank transfer. If you live within the EU, we can do a PBL, however, for the rest of the world, you will need to do a bank transfer.
I still need all the details to create a proforma (the purchaser’s bank billing address and then the end user’s name, address, email, and mobile phone number for delivery), but this time, I will email the office, create a proforma for you and then you will do the bank transfer using the Purchase Invoice details as reference. Bank transfers can either be instantaneous or can take anywhere up to 14 working days to clear, but rest assured, as your dedicated Advisor I will be chasing the office to check when the money has been received and for them to process your order confirmation.
Also: Extended Warranty. I am pleased to say, that we continue to offer an extended 3-year warranty at the point of purchase an add-on for £149. The Thermomix TM6 comes with a 2-year warranty so with this 3-year extension, you have 5-years of peace of mind. If you would like to add this on at the time of purchase, do let me know.
Note: All Thermomix comes with a 6-month Cookidoo subscription, 2-year warranty, and lifetime support with me as your dedicated Advisor. All purchases come with an offer of a virtual demonstration and a welcome visit.
