Workhorse Saddle Chairs: Improve your posture and well-being

Created by Workhorse Saddle Chairs

The way we sit is simply wrong. It’s leading to a range of health issues such as back pain, spinal degeneration, muscle aches and strains, headaches and poor circulation among many others. The Workhorse Saddle Chair has been scientifically designed by a Chiropractor to comfortably maintain the body in it’s ideal sitting position. It's time to quit the way you sit, for better health, performance and quality of life. If you missed the Kickstarter campaign you can still pre-order now and save.

Shipping Update Workhorse Saddle Chair – Further Delays
3 months ago – Mon, Apr 15, 2019 at 10:19:15 PM

Hi all,  another update on shipping as we work through our first production run.  Unfortunately we have encountered more delays as we work through the operational side of manufacturing and shipping the Workhorse Saddle Chair and ensuring we deliver you the highest quality product possible.  While the delays are of course not ideal and we’re extremely sorry about the wait you are experiencing, it’s the reality of manufacturing and international shipping that we are learning and would like to thank you for your patience. 

Revised Date Update

I’ve spent a great day at the factory on Saturday with the manufacturing team and the shipping agent working through the challenging task of sending over 500 chairs to over 40 different countries around the world.   We’re almost there and I plan to spend April 27,28 and 29 doing the final quality control checks personally for every chair as they are packed. No stone is being left unturned to ensure they are all of the highest quality and standard and give you all many years of great service improving your health and posture.

Once all boxes are sealed depending on destination and mode of delivery they will be staged in their shipping to their various destinations. Talking to the shipping agent it is a little like planes, trains and automobiles!  Rather than continuing to commit to delivery dates for each region – I will keep you updated regularly and advise when the chairs have left the factory and when you can expect your chair to arrive depending on your region.  At this stage we estimate the chairs to be leaving the factory from May 1 through May 15.

We are shipping a full container by sea to the US and Australia and a part container to Singapore and Canada and these need to fit into shipping schedules outside our control. It is still possible these dates change a little but it is very close and I will keep you well informed when they leave the factory and will give you a schedule of their approximate intended arrival date.

Thanks for your patience and we look forward to improving your health and posture.

We’re excited to be shipping your new Workhorse Saddle Chair very soon, though unfortunately our factory is 2 weeks behind the timing we had advised in our last update.  We had hoped chairs would be ready to leave the factory this week though it will be another two weeks to finalise production, then depending on your location and shipping time they will begin the journey to your home or workplace.

Updated approximate shipping times once the chairs leave the factory are:

Local Asian ports : 1 week to 10 days

US and Canada: 5 weeks (includes shipping, customs clearance , warehousing and local distribution)

European Countries: 5 weeks (includes shipping, customs clearance , warehousing and local distribution)

All other destinations allow 2 to 3 weeks ( we are still trying to get the best solution for a few ports)

We understand that you are eager to receive your new chair and start changing your posture and health and we appreciate your patience as we tackle the task of getting our first shipment of 500 packages including 7 different chair types to over 40 different countries.  We will post regular updates on progress and apologise for the delay – we are extremely happy with the quality of the work we are seeing from the factory, and working with them daily to ensure we deliver on our production commitments so you can rest assured your chair is coming very soon!    

Kind Regards  David and Clint – The Workhorse Saddle Chair team.

Workhorse Saddle Chair Production and Shipping Update:
5 months ago – Fri, Mar 01, 2019 at 05:03:54 PM

It’s been a busy month working with our manufacturer and shipping partners with over 450 chairs going to 40 different countries.

We’re a little overdue for an update so thanks for your patience as we work through the production and shipping stage of our first commercial production shipment that we couldn’t have achieved without you.     

Production Timing 

Production is progressing well, and we are due for all chairs to be completed and ready for our first shipment to leave the factory by the end of March. 

We have spent an enormous amount of time negotiating the most cost-effective method of delivery for each global region, so delivery times to your door will vary depending on your location.  For customers from the US, Canada, Australia and Europe we have managed to consolidate enough orders to allow us to ship the orders by sea then distribute internally via courier. Most Asian ports are by direct courier with airfreight being used for most other ports.

Delivery Timing

Appreciating that we plan for all chairs to leave the factory by the end of March, guides on delivery to your door timings are:

US and Canada: Early May (4 weeks shipping + 1 week clearing and domestic distribution)

Europe and UK:  End of April (3 weeks shipping + 1 week clearing and domestic distribution)

Australia: Mid-April (2 weeks shipping + 1 week clearing and domestic distribution)

Asian Ports Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia should receive their chairs in early April.

All other ports of which there are many, will be airfreighted and can expect to be received a week to 10 days after leaving the factory at the end of March depending on customs clearance in your country.

This is our current expected production and delivery timings and we will keep you updated with progress along the journey of our first commercial production shipment.    

It’s exciting to finally realize our mission of changing the way the world sits, with our chairs going across the globe to offices, homes, health and medical clinics, hairdressers and even bars with 8 of our Slide models going to the Longreach Tavern in Australia’s outback!  

We can’t wait to get you your chair/s and hear your feedback as you change the way you sit for good.
