Delivery

Please phone us on the day of ordering (or next working day if ordered after 5pm or at a weekend) if there are any special instructions for your property.  There is also a section in our checkout cart for your notes.

Things to consider…

  • Narrow roads may be unsuitable for large lorries.
  • The delivery area should be flat, rather than a steep slope.
  • Pallet trucks don’t work on loose ground such as grass or gravel.
  • The lorry won’t have a fork lift truck or a crane.
  • You may need additional help in order to get your order from the lorry to exactly where you want it.

Our vehicles are all equipped with tail lifts and pallet trucks, this makes for easier unloading and transferring onto your premises.

Please note that a re-delivery charge of £42 per pallet may be chargeable for every attempt if there is no one able to receive the order or the delivery is unable to be left safely!
