All delivery and lead times quoted are estimates only. We may decline to deliver if we believe it to be unsafe, unlawful, or unreasonably difficult to do so, or if the premises are unsuitable for our vehicle.
When unloading by hand is required the driver will leave the goods on the nearest part of the property to the vehicle. The drivers may use their discretion if goods are to be carried further.
By opting to use our delivery service, you are inviting our delivery staff and our vehicle on to your property and accepting the risk attached with doing this.Your delivery will be made by a commercial goods vehicle, and any consequential damage caused by the use of these vehicles is accepted at your own risk. This can include tyre / scuff marks on the driveway, oil / fuel leakages or spills,damaged vegetation, tyres ruts on soft ground etc. Our drivers will obviously try to minimise the impact their vehicle has on your property, but a commercial goods vehicle will always leave some form of footprint behind and you accept this at entirely your own risk when opting for delivery. We have the right to refuse delivery if we feel it is unsafe, unlawful, or likely to cause unacceptable damage to either your property or our vehicle. If you have any concerns about a commercial vehicle accessing your property, including if you live in an area with restricted access, please discuss them with our transport manager prior to delivery.
If an order is cancelled by you (for any reason) you are then to pay us for all goods (finished or un-finished) that we may then hold or to which we have committed for the order.
