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 sleepers and timber orders by hand, you may require more if your order if your order is large. Unfortunately our drivers are not able to assist with unloading. For delivery of other products you will only require 1 person at the delivery address to receive the goods. 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 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.
Delivery Times and options
Next day and economy deliveries are made between 8am and 6pm, we are unable to provide any times of delivery and customers should be available to take delivery during these times on the day of delivery, drivers are asked to call you on the number provided 1 hour before delivery but this is not guaranteed or forms any part of the contract of sale.
