Delivery Options

Our comprehensive fleet of vehicles and team of experienced drivers mean we are able to deliver your order at your convenience.  All of our trucks are fitted with satellite tracking which allows us to monitor the location of our trucks and track your order all the way to your door.  We are also able to supply materials on FORS registered vehicles to a Bronze standard.

We offer nationwide delivery, either in bulk bags (750kg) or loose tipped, to suit your requirements.  We can also export our products if required.

Call us with your requirements

 

Loose bulk deliveries are transported to site by tippers and it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that the vehicle can gain access and tip safely.  We can also offer delivery on 4 wheel rigid tippers to service addresses with access constraints.  Please note that due to possible segregation of material when transporting our self-binding products we are unable to deliver any quantity less than five tonnes loose tipped.  We can however deliver your required quantity in bulk bags.

Caution: Attention should be taken when requesting artics to deliver on site as a full load can weigh up to 44 tonnes and it is the customers' reponsibility to ensure that the ground is solid and level and that there is no danger with overhead cables etc.

Bulk bagged deliveries When ordering a small amount of bulk bags we will offer you a kerbside tail-lift lorry which will place the pallet as near as possible to where you need it. The ground and road need to be flat, level and solid to use this system.  Broken concrete, grass, gravel or sloping ground is unsuitable and pallets may only be left on the roadside at the drivers’ discretion if deemed safe to do so.  Alternatively bagged deliveries can be made using one of our crane off load vehicles. This allows bags to be ‘lifted’ into position if access is difficult or craned over walls and fences within reach.

Notice periods

Notice periods vary depending on what you require.  If ordered by 10am we can deliver bulk bags via our carrier on a standard 48 hour economy service.  The delivery will be made anytime from 8am to 5.30pm.  Upgrade options for Premium Next Day and AM are also available.

If ordering bulk bags for delivery on any of our crane off load, moffett or curtain sided vehicles we will ask for as much notice as possible - with 72 hours being the minimum.

When ordering loose tipped loads we ask for a minimum of 48 hours notice with our 8 wheeler rigid tippers and artic tippers.  Our 4 wheel rigid tipper is popular and so we would also ask for as much notice here as possible.  Usually 72 hours notice will be ample, however, during our busy periods this is likely to be extended.
