We are open for business as normal!

Click & Collect
Our trade counter is OPEN for our FREE Click & Collect service 7 days a week!
We can deliver within 5-7 working days NATIONWIDE, using our couriers Royal Mail, UKMail (DHL), DX, Hermes, DPD and our national pallet network partner.
We are currently unable to offer next-day delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic. When the service is available again, the same information will apply as our standard delivery service, but with a delivery timeframe of 1-2 working days.
We are going to put it out there – free shipping isn’t really free. Although other retailers may lead you to believe they offer free shipping, they are simply building the cost into their product prices.
We want to be as open and transparent as possible with you, meaning we keep our product prices and delivery costs separate, so you know what you are really paying for. Our product prices are competitive, and our delivery costs are calculated by our nationwide couriers based on the size/weight of the items and your location. If you add the product price and the delivery cost together, we are confident that the price per unit will remain competitive.
If you are ordering small items such as plant markers or kneeling mats, they will be sent via UKMail (DHL), Royal Mail, Hermes or DPD. If you are ordering bulkier items such as a pallet of railway sleepers (with each softwood sleeper weighing approx. 25Kg!), your order will be delivered by our national pallet network partner. The delivery cost will reflect this and will, therefore, vary depending on the goods you are ordering, the quantity and your location.

Delivery & Collection FAQs
The item says pre-order on your website, what does this mean?
If an item says ‘pre-order’ this means that the item is currently out of stock. In this case, we will hold the rest of your goods aside until we have the complete order for you. For an estimated arrival date for the goods coming back in stock, please get in touch. If you wish to have a part-delivery arranged (so that you receive the rest of your order before the out of stock item comes in), please get in touch with us on 01376 503869.
Do you deliver nationwide?
Yes! We can deliver nationwide using our chosen couriers Royal Mail, UKMail (DHL), DX, Hermes, DPD and our pallet network partner. We also deliver locally to Essex and surrounding counties using our own HIABs and vans.
How will I know my goods have been dispatched?
We will let you know via email when your goods have been dispatched. If you are ordering bulkier items such as sleepers, please leave a valid phone number or email address so that the courier can contact you to arrange delivery.
Do I need to be present for delivery?
We advise that you are present for all deliveries. If you are ordering sleepers, there must be at least two people available to help offload, or a forklift.
Which couriers do you use?
We use Royal Mail, UKMail (DHL), DX, Hermes, DPD and our national pallet network partner. We rely on our couriers to maintain our high standards of customer service; if you have any feedback regarding the couriers, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org so we can pass your feedback on.
What happens if I put the wrong delivery address on my order?
Should the address be incorrect or outdated when delivery is attempted, the package is usually returned to us by the courier. Please double check your delivery address carefully when placing an order and if you notice an error, contact us at your earliest convenience. Please note that any errors, once the order has been dispatched to the couriers, may incur a redelivery charge.
My road/site has access restrictions for large vehicles, what should I do?
If your delivery address has any vehicular access restrictions that may disrupt delivery, please notify us at the point of ordering so we can advise the courier and request a smaller vehicle where possible. Where redelivery is required due to a restriction we have not been notified about, an additional charge may be incurred by the couriers.
What will happen if I miss the scheduled delivery?
For smaller items, our couriers will normally leave the goods in a safe place. If you do not wish for your goods to be left for any reason, please state this in the “special delivery instructions” on the checkout page.
Large orders and pallet deliveries are often unable to be left in a safe location and will require a signature. If the parcel is unable to be signed for or left in a safe place, our courier will leave a card alerting you to the missed delivery. Please contact us or the courier directly to arrange another delivery. Most orders can be redelivered by the couriers free-of-charge, however, pallet deliveries will incur a redelivery charge.
My order arrived damaged/faulty/incorrect, what should I do?
If your goods arrive damaged, faulty or incorrect, please let us know within 30 days of receiving your order and we will arrange for the product to be sent out again free-of-charge. If for any reason you would prefer not to receive a replacement, we can issue a full refund.
This does not cover goods that have been used or damaged by the customer. If the goods have been altered or used, we cannot guarantee a refund or resend so please let us know at your earliest convenience.
