How do I select which day I'd like my goods to be collected?

If you require collection tomorrow please tick the Next Day Pickup box when putting in your requiremnts on the home page - when you go to place your order you are asked to select the pick up date you require. 

 

How do I know once my delivery has been delivered?

All deliveries are signed for on our state of the art ePOD (Electronic Proof of Delivery) and we are able to forward confirmation to you if you wish.

 

How do I get the goods ready for collection?

Goods are to be palletised, wrapped and accurately measured by you. If this is not possible, please select the pallet and wrap service at checkout at an additional charge. 

 

What is Pallet and Wrap?

All goods must be secured on a pallet. If you do not have access to one (ask around, you will be surprised how many there are about when you look!) our driver can bring one with him and you can put the goods onto it and the driver will shrink wrap (industrial strength cling film!) the goods to the pallet and secure then for transport.

 

Do I need any documents when the pallets will be collected?

No documents required! As the pallet will be labelled once received at our local depot. 

 

How would my pallet be loaded and unloaded?

Our vehicles come with equipment to load your pallet on the trunk. Back at base fork lift take over the heavy lifting to give the drivers a rest!

Our trucks are around the size of a rubbish collection vehicle and weigh up to 18 tonnes. We would not want to ruin your drive so we collect from the kerb side nearest your property. Please make sure you can get the goods near where the vehicle can stop.

 

Can the driver pick up items from inside my house?

Unfortunately, our drivers are not insured to enter your property. However, they are a helpful bunch and will do what they can to help where possible.

 

What time will my collection be?

Collection time will be between 08.00 and 18.00.

 

How long have I got to prepare my collection?

Please have goods ready in a place near to the anticipated collection point.
