National Delivery for Garden Furniture


National Delivery

Where can we deliver?

We can offer the option for national delivery on large items such as garden furniture and barbecues to mainland England, Wales and Southern Scotland only. We are unable to send items to Northern and Republic of Ireland, the Scottish Highlands and any of the surrounding islands.


How do we deliver?

Large deliveries outside of our local delivery area (see below section for details) are made via a third-party service who collect and deliver wrapped palletised goods. These are delivered to the nearest kerbside adjacent to the delivery address. The drivers will be unable to assist with the moevement of your furniture from the kerbside to your property.


When can we deliver?

The service is available Monday to Friday only. Once the items have been collected from our site it will take 3 working-days for the delivery to occur. Should you have a particular day or future date in mind for the delivery itself then please let us know in your delivery comments so that our team can review ahead of contacting you for further arrangements. Please be aware that we cannot guaruntee the date requested, but will speak with everyone before allocating a final date. 


Will you contact me on the day?

Unfortunately, we do not have direct tracking details for the delivery depots that will be handling the specified deliveries for different parts of the country. As such we cannot gauruntee delivery times and will be unable to provide ETAs or updates throughout the day. However, if you contact us on the morning of your delivery, we may be able to gain more information from the service teams we work with.


What happens to the pallets after delivery?

The pallets will be left in your posession for you to dispose of upon receipt of the delivery. The delivery drivers will not be able to take these away with them before they depart. 


What happens if there is a fault with the item?

If the item(s) are faulty then please contact us immediately on 01223 842777 and ask to speak with our garden furniture team. We can assess on a case by case basis as to the best course of action. If the furniture needs to be returns due to a fault with the items or due to an issue whilst in transit then we will cover for this. However, we will have to charge for any return deliveries for items that are in full working order.

Other things to consider:

  • Is there anywhere for us to leave your delivery if you’re not in when we arrive? For example, with a neighbour or behind your garage.
  • Have you told us about anything which might make delivery difficult? Examples might include steps, narrow access, or a gravel drive.
  • Does delivery require more than one person? If yes, are you available to help the driver unload?
  • Have you given us enough information to contact you easily? For instance, your mobile phone or daytime telephone number.
