Heavy goods are usually delivered by pallet on large lorries please make sure you have appropriate access to accommodate this type of vehicle.
The goods are delivered via our palletised delivery service. Delivering goods on a pallet is a very different from any other type of delivery you may receive, e.g. the frequently used courier service
A palletised delivery takes more tools and equipment and does carry some risk to their drivers. The deliveries are governed by health & safety guidelines for the benefit of both the driver and the customer, ensuring high quality service in the safest manner possible
The delivery service has a real time delivery information service; which includes a two-hour delivery window, SMS/email notifications and the ability to monitor the progress of the consignment via a track and trace system
Key points to remember when you receive your delivery:
Kerbside delivery only
Needs to deliver on a solid, flat surface to facilitate safe pump truck operation
Cannot deliver pallets on steep inclines
Will deliver to ground level locations only
The driver is not permitted to enter your property
Recipients, the customer should stay at a safe distance from the vehicle
Pallet/packaging disposal is the responsibility of the recipient/customer.
It is imperative that you check and sign for the palletised goods in the presence of the driver. The driver is obliged to remain on site for 15 minutes while you unpack and inspect the goods
But note that the 15 minutes waiting time is from the moment the driver arrives outside the property and also includes any vehicle, parking obstructions that might occur
You should be made aware that stoves and fireplaces are heavy items. It is recommended that on the delivery day an extra person should be on hand, as there is only one driver who will assist
The driver will not be able deliver to an alternative address on the day without prior notice; re-delivery charges will incur
It is important to check the items over on delivery to make sure you are happy with them; products such as natural stone can have fossils, fissures, veins and markings within the stone. These natural products can vary, they are unique and not the same

If you are unavailable when the packaged goods, e.g.fireplace accessories (not pallets) are delivered; an Attempted Delivery Card will be left by the courier company with instructions for rearranging the delivery
Overweight items such as marble, limestone and cast iron are only suitable for delivery to addresses on the ground floor due to their dimensions and weight. We are unable to deliver to flats/apartments which are not situated on ground floor level. Our delivery service does undertake to identify any delivery issues prior to the delivery date. We do not hold any accountability if you raise an order to an address which is not acceptable for delivery
The risk of loss and damage of products becomes the customers’ responsibility from the date of delivery. If the customer has arranged independently to have their goods delivered or collected by a third party this clause becomes the liability of the third party immediately upon collection or receipt of the goods
If you cancel an order after it has been dispatched you will be charged for the returned delivery costs - even if the goods have not reached your address.
