Brick slips and Natural stone cladding / tiles, wood panels will be shrink wrapped on a pallet and delivered to the ground level edge of your property (curb side). The driver will NOT be able to assist getting the goods into your property due to insurance purposes.

Please note: We use Palletways Premium delivery service ( Next day by 17.00 not guaranteed) – We work closely with our third party delivery company to provide the best possible delivery service for our customers at a reasonable cost, although please remember they are not fully under our control. We do strongly recommend that you should order your tiles well in advance of your planned installation date and we will not under any circumstance be held liable for financial losses resulting from late or incorrect deliveries.

All of our deliveries go via a third party haulier, operating a hub system.

Most of our deliveries are made on pallets and these will always be delivered “kerbside”.This means your tiles will be left secured to the pallet at the nearest external location to the property which has a flat hard surface leading from the delivery vehicle.

They are generally delivered on 18 tonne lorry with a tail lift, and offloaded using a pallet pump truck, unless you stipulate that there is a forklift truck on site. Please be aware the delivery is made by a third party delivery company and the driver will not be able to assist in unloading the pallet or helping to bring the goods inside your property. They will not enter the premises for insurance purposes.

Some tile boxes weigh in excess of 20kg each and we recommend ensuring you have arranged help on the day of delivery if you need it.

Please make sure that the delivery site has no access restrictions for this size lorry or limitations on weight to the site, ie road weight restrictions and bridges. Please be aware that the outer dimensions are not the same for every lorry as stone are a heavy product they must be delivered with a hydraulic vehicle that has a high roof and cannot reverse into a drive.

A tail lift and pump truck is used to off load the pallets. A flat, hard surface is required in order to do this. Other obstacles such as over-hanging branches, other cars etc must also be considered. Any surface such as grass, shingle, cobbles etc will prevent off-loading. Slopes and high curbs may also cause issues.

The delivery will take place on a specified day, but unfortunately we cannot supply a time for delivery. We do ask that they call the contact on site half an hour before delivery, so if this is helpful, please provide a name and number as appropriate on your purchase order. This is not a guaranteed service however, so there will need to be somebody on site to receive the goods.

On arrival of the pallet, please make sure that all goods are in tact. If you see any potential or actual damages, or the packaging is not in tact, please mark ‘Damaged’ on the delivery note , take picture if possible and contact us straight away. This enables us to start damage claim process.
