Orders for the flow Hive are only made through this site. I’m in the UK and I ordered my Flow Frames and Hives through the initial campaign with Indigogo and have my hives already.

If you want to order Flow Hives or Frames you need to go here http://www.honeyflow.com/shop/p/94

Mine were ordered as well with the original Indigogo, i’ve received everything except my flow frames. Did your ship separately from the rest of your hive?


#4

Everyone is getting the flow frames in one shipment and the hive components in another. The fraes ship from Aussieland, the hives come from Oregon in the US.

I received my actual hive in early December (I live in California, next door to Oregon) but didn’t get my one set of frames until early January. i am waiting on my second set of frames still, which makes sense as they were added later.

I discovered I needed a replacement part for one of my hive pieces. I sent an email to info@honeyflow.com with my email, the order number ad a few photos attached showing the damage to one of the finger joints. They had a replacement to me in around a week.

Hi Ray,

You may not know the history. Flow is actually a very young startup company. The founders (Stu and Cedar, father and son) have been developing the Flow frame concept for several years, testing it out in their own hives.

In early 2015, they launched a crowd-funding campaign on the Indiegogo web site, hoping to raise $70,000 to get the system into production. By the time the campaign closed, they had actually raised over $12 million. However, they had no infrastructure at that point, because they only started to raise the capital with the crowdfunding source. You can imagine that going from no business to filling $12 million worth of orders is going to take a lot of setup work. Meanwhile they have continued to improve the design, and deal with logistics issues. Considering that they ship all over the world (with the exception of 5 countries), and they are less than a year from starting that campaign, they are doing pretty well.

I am lucky enough to own a Tesla Model S car. When I ordered it, the waiting time for delivery was 4 months. Of course a car is a little more complex than a bee hive :blush: but then Tesla is a much more established company than Flow. Their waiting time is still more than 3 months, and over a year for some of the new Model X owners.

My point is, that anything radically new from a startup company is going to take much more time to deliver than cranking the handle on an old idea from an established company. Hope that sheds a little light.

So anyway I presume that you have nown company along time?


#16

I heard about Flow last year - when they launched their crowd-funding campaign.


#17

I joined the campaign a few days in last year. Ordered the full hive set up. I’ve been watching progress as the project has got up to speed. Today I received the full hive and frames. The quality packing is excellent.

All good to go this spring now…


#18

Hi again did you get my last email through this site if not what am I doing wrong??


#19

Hi just been reading all the complaints?there all ways seem to be people who will not give a new company time to stall down and let these company,s get there act into place???
When I started my company (a very long time ago,now retired.1989???)any way it was a lot different than today only just getting the internet in play. Infarct we were the first company in our area to have the internet.Sorry I digress,people really need to let them have a good try before they start running them down.PS have you watched the videos on youtube by Flow bos it is really good and explains everything to every one if they would bother to watch and listen to it.I presume you have got all your orders sorted now?
Have a good one and all the best Ray UK
