Rapid carriage of your products across the UK, Ireland & Channel Islands

DELIVERY

Distributing materials successfully for over 35 years

Delivering goods to UK mainland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, the extended areas of Scotland and the Channel Islands has always been challenging for small to medium distribution businesses, with a heavy focus on the fastest delivery becoming the number 1 priority for many consumers, customer service is becoming a secondary consideration. We feel somewhat reluctant to get carried away with the Amazon Prime type of service, opting to maintain a connection with our customers directly, providing advice and assistance, whilst still providing a solid delivery service that other companies who sell the same or similar product ranges to us fall very short on. Most of these ‘middle man’ companies offer no direct contact details and simply intercept business online, lacking any technical knowhow and promising fast deliveries, then sending the goods direct from the manufacturer, often undercutting everyone else online, earning unfeasible, low margins with no longevity to their business model and ultimately affecting their overall service and performance. We’ve been distributing materials from our warehouse in Chingford, North-East London for nearly 40 years, using trusted, national courier services and/or local delivery services where possible within London and the surrounding counties. We make every effort possible to ensure a smooth operation from initial ordering to final delivery and pride ourselves on a very high success rate for next day deliveries for the majority of our orders, even on our standard delivery service, wether it be credit account customers placed over the phone with our sales team or emailed to the office or orders placed directly on our E-Shop.

A Breakdown Of Our Delivery Rates

Our Various Carriage Costs Explained

  1. Standard Delivery (E-Shop Orders) - From Free - £5.83 +vat

    ORDER TOTALS  UNDER £100 (inc.VAT)

    For all deliveries to mainland UK that total under £83.33+vat (excluding the extended areas listed separately) a charge of £5.83+vat is automatically applied at checkout.

    ORDER TOTALS OVER £100 (inc.VAT)

    For all deliveries to mainland UK that total over £83.33+vat (excluding the extended areas listed separately) free delivery is automatically applied at checkout.

    STOCKS

    We keep large stocks of almost every product listed (including the huge colour ranges) and always endeavour to despatch all orders as soon as we possibly can to get your goods to you in a timely fashion. Obviously we run out of certain products periodically as any distributor with high turnover does and so we order new stock on a regular, rotational basis.

    The manufacturers’ minimum order quantity requirements differ considerably across the many companies we source goods from and so, if we need to place an order with a manufacturer or we’re awaiting new stock, on a previously placed order, then this will delay the order slightly. If the delay in acquiring new stocks is likely to be more than the timescale (stated below) for your delivery address, then you will be notified and given options in good time. If you need your goods urgently, the best plan is to email or phone the office and check on the stock status of the product(s) you require.

    TIMESCALES

    We cannot ever guarantee a next day delivery but can honestly say that at least 75% of all UK mainland orders, where the goods are fully stocked and the order is received in good time, reach the customer the next day, even on our standard delivery service!

    If stock is readily available, then orders placed before 2pm are generally despatched that same day, if placed after 2pm, then the next working day. As a general rule, our delivery is stated as being from 1-7 x days as standard, giving us the buffer to order in new stock from the manufacturers, this procedure is normally quick and easy, occasionally however, there are exceptions to this rule, when further stock isn’t instantly available from the manufacturer for one reason or another, a delay can be caused, in this case we will give you a projected timescale, alternatives (if viable) and any other options available to us and yourself.

    WEEKENDS

    Please note; our couriers DO NOT deliver on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays and so, any orders placed on Fridays will be delivered at the earliest the following Monday (excluding any Bank holiday Fridays and/or Bank Holiday Mondays)

  2. Standard Delivery (All Orders Placed Through The Office) - From Free - £17.50 +vat

    ORDER TOTALS UNDER £360 (inc. VAT)

    For all deliveries to mainland UK that total under £300+vat (excluding the extended areas listed separately) a charge of £17.50+vat applies.

    Mainly (but not exclusively) used for regular bulk or larger orders, this covers administrative, processing costs and the carriage charge and is the same regardless of wether the products are delivered on a pallet with one courier or in separator boxes with a different courier.

    Apart from the obvious benefit of receiving goods on interest-free credit (when orders are placed on an account) the other reason this charge is considerably higher than the E-Shop standard cost is due to the time and labour involved for our sales people to process the order, complete the administrative work and take payment (if applicable).  

    Please note;

    Regardless of the nature of your account standing as a business, (i.e wether you’re a credit account holder or not) there’s always the option of purchasing through the E-Shop and paying by card thus achieving the lower carriage rate rules! You’ll need to setup a separate account to your credit account and then simply checkout as any other customer would, entering a valid, unique email address, your E-Shop order history will be available online but is obviously completely separate from your credit account.  

    IF YOU WISH TO PLACE ORDERS ONLINE USING YOUR EXISTING CREDIT ACCOUNT, THEN PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CARRIAGE RULES FOR ‘ALL ORDERS PLACED THROUGH THE OFFICE’ WILL APPLY.

    FOLLOW THIS LINK TO APPLY FOR AN EXISTING CREDIT ACCOUNT LOGIN.

    ORDER TOTALS OVER £360 (inc. VAT)

    For all deliveries to mainland UK that total over £300+vat (excluding the extended areas listed separately) free delivery applies. This is an incentive to order slightly more material and less regularly to help keep costs down for both us to ship your goods to you and also to keep the cost of the products competitive and affordable.

    STOCKS

    We keep large stocks of almost every product listed (including the huge colour ranges) and endeavour to despatch all orders as soon as we possibly can to get your goods to you in a timely fashion.

As a general rule, our office orders delivery is stated as being from 1-3 x days as standard, giving us a slight buffer to order in new stock from the manufacturers, this procedure is normally quick and easy, occasionally however, there are exceptions to this rule, when further stock isn’t instantly available from the manufacturer for one reason or another, a delay can be caused, in this case we will give you a projected timescale, alternatives if viable and any other options available to us and yourself.

  12. Self-Arranged Collection & Delivery By Courier (Orders Through E-Shop Or Through Office)

    Many trade customers have their own courier accounts or collection/delivery vehicles and prefer to place ‘collection’ orders with us with a view to arrangement of goods and then deliver to site, depot or any other address they may require goods to go to. This is perfectly acceptable to us and can save time & money for our customers in some cases. If you need to send us delivery details and/or a letter-headed despatch note etc. to ensure that your driver, or your arranged courier, has full details to make a timely delivery and/or can gather a signature upon delivery, then an emailed attachment will be fine. If placing a collection order of any kind through the E-Shop, you need to ensure that click & collect is selected as opposed to delivery.
