Shipping Policy

Delivery options - UK

Please Be Aware: Whilst we can and do deliver to a residential or home address please understand we only deliver to registered traders and businesses.
We use a business to business carrier, DPD, and they do expect you to be there during the slot given to you. If you are not you may face additional charges to re-deliver goods. For Next Day delivery on cartons or pallet orders, your order and payment must be with us and cleared by 1 pm at the latest.

Pallet Delivery Services: We now offer a Next Day or 2-3 Day Economy service. A requested 2nd-day service is once again available but we are not able to offer guaranteed 2nd-day delivery or pallet tracking. We are able to request a call 1 hour before but once again it is only if the driver is able. If you want to request this please add it in the 'additional notes' box during checkout.

For pallet delivery the carrier would drop the pallet from the van to kerbside, you are responsible to move it from there. The drivers are not required to take a pallet into your premises, but most drivers may help if they can and have time to do so. (These are DPD drivers, not ours so we cannot instruct them to do any more).

Pallet delivery is not available for residential premises.

If you cannot find this invoice please contact us and we will supply a copy. (please ensure you have checked thoroughly before requesting a new copy, including inside the cardboard flaps of all the boxes or attached to the exterior wrap on pallets)
