Yes. Previous clients include This Is Not Rocket Science, Metasonix, SoundForce and Dtronics.

Sustainability

Native woods like oak, ash elm and beech are usually sourced from Hout van je Stad; an Amsterdam based organisation which uses trees which are felled as part of routine maintenance in parks and public spaces around the city.

Non-native species are sourced from a local wood merchant whose timber complies with EUTR and FSC standards
Cases are wrapped in bubble wrap and then edges are protected with strong cardboard corner profile and wrapped in a double layer of cardboard sheet.

Payment

Please send me an email with your name, address, telephone number and details of what you would like. I will write you an invoice. Payment should be made by IBAN transfer.. Details are on the invoice
No, I don’t use PayPal
There are better, faster, cheaper options. Try Transferwise if you need a quick, easy, low cost way to send money internationally.
Payment to a European bank via IBAN can often cost a lot of money in fees and poor exchange rates when handled directly by your bank. Instead, I recommend Transferwise. It’s a cheap, easy way of sending money internationally. I don’t have any vested interest in recommending them; I’m just a happy customer.

Shipping & Delivery

Yes, collection is possible by appointment only from my workshop to the west of Amsterdam.

When you make an order, let me know that you would prefer to collect it and we can make an appointment.
Gould Case Works chooses a shipping method based on the size and value of your order.  All orders are insured for their full value.

– For orders in the EU (and UK) with a value up to 520 EUR, I use DPD.

– For orders with a value greater than €520, DHL is normally the best choice

– For transatlantic deliveries (USA, Canada) Fedex is normally the best choice.

I will provide a shipping estimate before you place an order, and the actual cost of shipping will be aded to your final invoice.

If you would prefer to book your own courier to collect your shipment, that is possible by prior arrangement.
Delivery starts at 35 EUR for delivery with DPD to most European destinations. Scandinavia, UK and Portugal are a little more expensive.

For larger boxes and higher value orders, I get a quote before you order.
No, it is not possible to declare a lower value for your order on the customs paperwork.
