Important Delivery Update
Please note that due to the ongoing challenges with delivery drivers in the UK, some deliveries are taking slightly longer than expected. Our normal delivery timescales are detailed below and we will endeavour to meet these wherever possible. If we are notified that there may be some delays with your delivery then we will inform you at the earliest opportunity. We would like to thank you for your continued support and assure you that our haulage partners are working hard behind the scenes to ensure that all deliveries are dealt with as efficiently as possible during this period.
Normal Delivery Timescales
Please note, the above tables detail delivery timelines in a normal 5 day working week. Bank holidays are not classed as working days and as such will extend the delivery timeline. These timescales are indicative and on occasion may be shorter. On a standard delivery service our haulage partners will contact you to arrange a convenient delivery day once they have received the consignment. For Express Delivery service, our delivery partners will deliver your consignment at the earliest opportunity.
How will my order be delivered and do I need help?
Delivery is kerbside only or the nearest safe point to the address.
Customers should have a minimum of 2 people at the delivery address to assist the driver in unloading all cast stone products by hand, you may require more if your order if your order is large. Unfortunately our drivers are not able to assist with unloading. Each delivery is allocated 30 minutes for unloading. Where possible the driver will unload with a pallet truck via the tail lift to a level and safe area nearest to kerb side, the driver will not be responsible for delivering beyond this point.
Your Order will be delivered on pallet/s. The delivery vehicle is not fitted with a crane or winch. Please be aware that the driver will not be able to lift your orders over walls or fences or up steps and slopes and we cannot deliver onto uneven surfaces such as gravel driveways, grass, unmade roads etc.
Please Note: Deliveries cannot be made on narrow or gravel driveways.
All delivery dates given or chosen when placing your order are not binding and do not form any part of a contract between us.
We will endeavour always to meet your requested delivery dates, but due to unforeseen circumstances or matters beyond our control, we will NOT be liable to the customer for any costs or compensation due to a missed delivery date. All orders are placed on the acceptance of these terms.
