All orders will be delivered to a single address. For security reasons your first order using a credit/debit card when placed on our website or by phone will need to be delivered to the cardholder's address. Subsequent orders can then be made to an alternative address. Orders made on our website in-store do not need to be delivered to the cardholder’s address.
To minimise inconvenience we will, wherever possible, try to make one single delivery to you. This means that if your order contains a mix of Goods with different delivery lead times, the longest lead time will apply to the whole order.
All deliveries must be received and signed for by a person over the age of 18. If no-one is available to take the delivery, we will leave details at the address to rearrange delivery. We may need to make an additional handling charge for redelivery. Should no-one be available to take the redelivery we may cancel the order and refund your money, excluding any delivery charges.
We want to ensure that everything is right with your order and may take CCTV images of deliveries loaded at Tern Hill and photos of some orders on delivery. Please make sure that you carefully check your order on receipt and ideally notify our customer services team within 24 hours via telephone or email if any Goods are missing or damaged. By notifying us within this time frame it smooths the investigation process and we can organise a redelivery, replacement or collection as appropriate.
Due to insurance guidelines, our delivery personnel are unable to enter private residences. For Large and/or Bulk deliveries, delivery will be to the kerbside of the address. For all other deliveries, delivery will be to the ground floor doorstep of the delivery address. The recipient of the delivery is responsible for any additional lifting once the delivery has been completed.
Please be aware that it will be necessary to deliver most Large and/or Bulk deliveries on a flat bed truck fitted with a hydraulic crane, which can weight up to 26 tons with an approximate length of 9 metres, fitted with extending leg supports required when using the crane.
Safety is paramount, and our drivers will first do a safety check on arrival to ensure there are no issues with the ground, overhead cables, paving, gates and public access before commencing delivery. Unfortunately, if there are any safety or access issues we will not be able to complete the delivery and the driver's decision is final. If the safety or access issues were or should have been seen to be obvious when the order was placed then the delivery charge will not be refunded. Should this occur our team will discuss with you what options are available, including refunding your order.
We use pallets to deliver some Goods. These form part of the product packaging and are non-returnable. You can reuse these pallets or alternatively dispose of them independently.
Risk of loss and damage in the Goods will pass to you on the date when the Goods are delivered or on the date on which we make our first attempt to deliver them to you.
