LOCAL DELIVERIES

For local deliveries, we have a fleet of vehicles, including flat bed tippers and large trucks with crane-off facility to help complete your delivery in the most economical.
Our deliveries are completed on a kerbside only basis, meaning your goods will be delivered to an area at the front of your property which the vehicle can reach from the public highway. Most deliveries can be made onto a driveway, if requested, and small easily handled products may be placed onto the front of your property however, the delivery driver is ultimately responsible for where they can sensibly offload.
If, at your request, a vehicle delivers to any place situated off the public highway, you are to be solely responsible for and shall indemnify us fully against any damage or accident, howsoever caused. The drivers' decision is final when deciding what is a safe unload and/or delivery location.

Before placing your order, please consider the following questions to help determine if there will be any delivery issues.
• Do the roadways leading to your property have any weight or height limitations?
• Are the roadways leading to the property wide enough to accept our delivery vehicles?
• Is the road outside your property usually clear of other vehicles?
• Are there any low bridges or low hanging trees or cables?
• Is there a time restriction for waiting outside your property?
• Are there any problems with a kerbside only delivery?
If you answer yes to any of the above, please inform us when ordering and we will try our best to accomodate your needs.

Important Notice: In the event of any goods being delivered and deposited whether, on the public highway or elsewhere, the customer shall be responsible for compliance with all laws, bye laws and regulations and for all steps which need to be taken for the protection of persons or property in relation to such goods and shall indemnify us in respect of all or any costs, claims, losses or expenses which we may incur as a result of such a delivery. In particular the customer shall be responsible for complying with the Highways Act 1959 and 1971 and shall ensure that any goods left on the public highway are properly lighted with warning lights.
