We always aim to deliver when say we are going to deliver and try our best not only to retain product quality as the customer base continues to grow, but are constantly looking for new ways to further improve the service we offer. If there is something you think we can do to further improve the service please let us know.

 

Please find our terms and conditions and data policy below.

2. Payment terms

2.1. If the balance due for products and services provided is not paid by the payment due date, a £20 late payment fee may be applied. Prior to this you will receive notifications by email reminding you when your balance is due and when it becomes overdue. If you receive a notice that your balance is now overdue, please ensure immediate payment to ensure that no late payment fee is imposed.

 

If unsure about anything or if you are having difficulty in paying the balance for any reason please contact us immediately, and we will do our best to help out. If the outstanding balance is not paid in full 30 days after the late payment fee then the statutory annual interest rate 8% plus the Bank of England base rate will be applied until the full balance including any interest accrued and any other administrative charges have been fully settled.

2.2 Cheque payments. Should a customer paying by cheque have their cheque refused to be paid by their bank, the customer will be held responsible for ensuring any outstanding balance is settled as well as any bank charges that the business has incurred and may also be charged an administration fee should the matter not be resolved swiftly. Cheques will be banked within 2 months of receipt.

3. Shipping and Delivery

  • Please see our Delivery section for detailed information as to the different delivery options that we offer.

  • We will confirm your order by email and on this email will be the proposed delivery date & estimated time of delivery. If for any reason the delivery date and time does not suit, please contact us as soon as you can,  at least 24 hours before delivery or shipping of a pallet (if ordering via courier service) , to ensure that the order is not loaded, and where possible to allow us time to either reschedule or cancel  the order.

  • Once an order has been loaded for delivery or uplifted by courier, any costs that have been incurred in transportation, loading and returning stock back to its original state will become the responsibility of the customer should the customer decide to no  longer accept the delivery at this stage.

  • Orders cannot be booked according to the weather. Orders refused at time of delivery with no prior notification from customer will incur any costs in returning goods to store again, we cannot reschedule every time it rains! 

  • If there is a severe weather event, orders may have to be delayed and we will always notify you of this as soon as we are able. Please contact us if you have any concerns at all about making deliveries during severe weather events. 

  • If there is snow or ice on the ground at agreed delivery drop off point, please ensure that it is kept clear to ensure safe working conditions for the delivery driver. Otherwise delivery may either have to be dropped at closest safe point of delivery or returned if there is no safe delivery point. If you wish to change a delivery date due to concerns over the weather please contact us as soon as you can so that we can try to reschedule the delivery to another date.

  • Pallet deliveries -

  1. Couriers delivering pallets will need a hard level surface once pallet off loaded or kerbside delivery.

  2. For local pallet deliveries only -  ideally to offload pallets onto a hard surface, the tilt bed trailer with electric pallet truck can work on slopes. If offloading onto gravel the pallet will stop as soon as it comes off trailer and will not move further.  The electric pallet truck cannot disembark onto deep gravel or grass as it will immediately sink and get stuck. For these properties it is recommended to consider the stacking and moving service.

4. Returns

In the event that you require a refund for the product that you have purchased, under Distant Selling Regulations you can return the items to the trading address above within 28 days of receipt of your goods for a full refund. Products will returned at your own expense and must be in original unused condition; unless the wrong product was delivered by the supplier, or the products were delivered damaged.

We will refund you in full within 2 weeks of receiving the products providing products are returned in their original packaging and condition.
