Delivery Zone 3 - Scotland (Borders)

How and when?

The main issue we faced with delivering our products over long distances is that our loads are usually long, heavy and unwieldy. We have however found an excellent solution to this problem and as a result we are able to deliver long lengths and/or heavy packs of timber around the UK quickly and relatively cheaply.

For the postcode areas listed above we will normally deliver using a nationwide pallet service. Delivery charges are calculated by the number of pallet spaces taken up by the load. A pallet space is 1.22 metres or part thereof. The number of pallet spaces taken is determined by the longest item on the order. For example, if you order 2.44 metre long deck boards you will be charged for 2 pallet spaces.

Deliveries using this service usually take place 5 - 7 days after we receive your order. We will contact you by phone to arrange a convenient delivery day. Deliveries usually take place Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm. We can also arrange a Saturday delivery for an additional charge of £30. Please contact us if you require this service.

What time will it get here?

It is not possible to give a delivery time in advance as our delivery partners work out their routes the night before delivery, however if requested the driver will call you on the day to give an approximate delivery time. Just enter your request in the 'Special Instructions' box on the order page.


Please let us know in advance if there are any access restrictions; for example narrow streets, parking restrictions, narrow farm tracks etc.

When your delivery arrives

To keep delivery charges to a minimum, goods are manually offloaded from the delivery vehicle. Someone must be on-site to sign for the delivery who is able to assist with the offload. If your order contains large lengths of timber you may need additional people on hand to help. As with most companies delivering building materials, delivery obligation ends at the kerbside.
