 Certain large orders may be delivered by pallet. You will be advised if this is required

If the company, or its agent cannot gain access to the delivery address then additional costs may be incurred. Deliveries may be made using large vehicles and it is the customer’s responsibility to inform the company if there may be an access problem. The company will confirm the outcome by e-mail.

This above action must be completed before 2.00 pm on the day prior to delivery. E-mail confirmations of orders also request the customer to contact the company if a delivery problem may occur.

 

Delivery vehicles may use tail lift offloading, and it must be emphasized that the delivery vehicle must be able to park in an area where the delivery is to be made. A pallet truck is then used to maneuver the products off the tail lift to the kerbside delivery point. The customer, or somebody appointed by the customer, should be at the delivery point to accept the delivery.
