To avoid disappointment, we strongly recommend you wait until all items have been delivered before arranging installation. We can not be held responsible for any delays or costs incurred due to late delivery by our courier partners.

All delivery prices are calculated in your basket. To get a clear view of the charge, add all the products you want to order to your basket, select the desired delivery option and delivery zone. You will not have to add your payment details to do this.

Delivery Options & Prices

We hold a large amount of stock in our warehouse and receive new deliveries daily, so we will do our utmost to get your order delivered to you as quickly as possible. Other products that we order from the manufacturers have a longer lead time. Expected lead times can be found on a product's page.

Some products are particularly large and bulky so it may not be possible to deliver them to some locations, such as high-rise properties. If there are any obstacles to deliverying your order to your door, please mention it in the comments box during check out.

Whilst we pride ourselves in meeting our delivery promises, we rely on third party couriers to get your order to you so occassionally there are delays for reasons beyond our control. If this happens we will do our best to advise you.

Despatch of your order

Our customer service team will allocate a space for your order with our delivery partners to ensure it arrives in good condition and on time. You will receive an email on the day your order is sent with details. Normal delivery times are between 9am and 5pm. If you need more information about the delivery time, please contact the delivery company mentioned in the despatch email.

We hold thousands of products in stock, which helps us process your order faster. Items sold from our stock are sold subject to them still being available when your order is received.

Delivery of your order

We will despatch products to your home, site or third party at your request but please note orders sent to a third party or site are despatched at your risk. Larger orders are sent on a pallet and are normally delivered on a rigid vehicle with a tail lift. This usually means your order will be dropped on your driveway or on the kerbside.

What to do if you cannot be there to accept delivery

Please make sure you are free to accept delivery on the agreed date. If you are unable to be there yourself, please contact us at least 48 hours before your delivery is due to take place so we can arrange another delivery on a day that suits you.

Otherwise, you can send us instructions to deliver the goods in your absence to Alternatively, leave a detailed written note at your address, with your signature, that the driver can take with him. If no one is present to accept delivery and you have not left written instructions, the order will not be delivered.

If you are not present to sign for your order and have not made alternative arrangements, you will incur a missed delivery charge.

Accepting your delivery

To make sure you are not disappointed when you unpack your order after signing for it, we advise you to check the goods thoroughly before signing for them. Read our returns policy and find what to do if your product has a fault.

Do not accept damaged products. Orders signed for “unchecked” will be deemed to have been received in good condition.

We work with third parties to deliver products to you, so we accept no responsibility for damage to any parts by a third party.

The legal bit:

Once the order have been delivered to your home/site, the risk of any damage to or loss of the items passes on to you. You will only own the products once they have been successfully delivered and when we have received cleared payment in full. After this point we will no longer be liable for their loss or condition

Damaged items

Unfortunately, despite our best attempts, accidents can happen. If the you receive damaged items, sign the delivery note as damaged and contact us as soon as possible.

If after signing for your order you later find there is damage, you have 14 days from delivery to tell us, after which no exchange can be made. If you left instructions for the order to be left in your absence, tell us of any damages within 24 hours of delivery.

Photographs will help us ensure a speedy change of product. Please send them to with information about your order and the damage. We will follow up with you as soon as possible.

If you still have questions about the sending out and receipt of your order, please get in touch with our customers services team. They will be happy to answer your questions.
