SLAB DELIVERY INFORMATION
The slabs are very heavy and therefore there are weight restrictions on pallet sizes that the lorry tail lifts can handle.
Delivery costs are calculated by our shipping partners and charged PER PALLET SPACE on the delivery network, not per delivery drop off, so bear this in mind when ordering.
Multiple pallets can usually be delivered at the same time if required:
A 7.5/12 tonne lorry can only handle up to 25 sq metres per pallet (100 slabs per pallet/700kg)
An 18 tonne lorry can only handle up to 35 sq metres per pallet (140 slabs per pallet/980kg)
DELIVERY COST DEPENDS ON:
• the postcode area (we are charged according to various zones)
• the amount of slabs (we are charged per pallet space)
• the size of lorry that the customer can accept delivery from (which affects the weight of pallet that can be sent, so the amount of slabs per pallet)
As a rough guide your delivery could be anything from £60 (half pallet delivery in zones in the Midlands, for example) to £160 (Shetlands, Orkneys, Northern Ireland), including VAT, per pallet.
Please get in touch for a delivery quotation, and let us know the first part of your postcode, how many square metres or how many slabs you are considering ordering, and whether you can accept delivery from an 18 tonner or whether we should request a smaller delivery lorry because of access restrictions.
Deliveries can be at any time of the day, if you wish to narrow the window to an AM or PM delivery please indicate that on the order form (£18 incl VAT additional charge, refunded in full if the delivery company doesn’t deliver within the promised window).
Please use the contact form below for a quick quotation.
PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT THE DELIVERY DRIVERS ARE ONLY CONTRACTED & INSURED TO DELIVER TO KERBSIDE. IT IS ENTIRELY AT THE DRIVER'S DISCRETION WHETHER THEY DRIVE ONTO YOUR PROPERTY OR NOT. MANY ARE NOT INSURED TO DO SO. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE DELIVERY BEYOND KERBSIDE.
We will reply with a quotation by email. If you are happy to proceed, please use the order form to order your slabs.
Deliveries will take place between 9am and 5pm unless you have requested and paid for an AM or PM delivery. Our deliveries are made via a courier company and therefore we do not have live information regarding your delivery times. Delivery drivers are only contracted to deliver to the KERBSIDE.
If you require delivery to be made to anywhere other than an address with postcode and smooth hard standing, please indicate this on the order form and we will contact you to discuss before we issue an invoice. WE CANNOT USUALLY DELIVER TO A FIELD / PADDOCK UNLESS SPECIFIC CRITERIA ARE MET, please contact us before ordering to discuss your requirements in this case.
If you can get a bin lorry in, or if a kerbside delivery is possible from an 18t lorry then please choose that option. Availability of the 7.5t lorries is more problematic, they cannot always be guaranteed to be available, leading to delivery problems.
Please bear lorry sizes in mind.
WHAT HAPPENS ON DELIVERY DAY?
You should receive an email with a two hour delivery window as a guideline, on the delivery day you have chosen. These emails aren’t sent out until your order is loaded onto the delivery lorry, so if you don’t get it in the morning, your delivery will be on the lorry’s second or third run of the day.
We always request that the drivers should call ahead of delivery, and if they don’t then they have to wait for you if necessary.
