All products purchased on-line are assigned a “Default” delivery method which is then priced according to either postal zone or parcel weight including a flat UK / International rate.

Certain products will offer an alternate “economy” delivery method at checkout.

UK Delivery “Defaults”

Palletized:- “Palletized” delivery default means a product CAN ONLY be delivered by palletized distribution via 3rd party haulage network.

Standard Palletized Pricing is determined by POST CODE & number of pallets (most items are 0.5 pallet i.e. two IBC’s equal one pallet). We aim for 3 working days delivery from day of order.

Express Palletized Pricing is an additional Check Box option offered at checkout. Selecting “Express” for palletized goods on orders placed BEFORE 1.00pm (13.00 hrs) requests NEXT DAY delivery. A supplement of £35.00 per order (regardless of quantity) is charged. If Orders are placed after 1.00pm with the Express option next day delivery can not be guaranteed and the order may be delivered the day following.

TNT Only:- “TNT Only” delivery default means a product CAN ONLY be delivered via NEXT DAY EXPRESS PARCEL service on orders placed BEFORE 1.00pm (13.00 hrs). Orders placed after this time may not be delivered next day, but the following working day by EXPRESS PARCEL service.

TNT Only Pricing is a flat rate regardless of quantity or weight (up to 10kg) of items in an order. A flat rate of £17.00 is charged per order for this service.

TNT:- “TNT” delivery default (applicable to most Spare Parts) means the flat rate of £17.00 for NEXT DAY EXPRESS PARCEL service will apply automatically HOWEVER at Check Out an ”Economy Second Class” Check Box will be offered with an alternate delivery charge displayed.

Economy Second Class Service offers a cheaper delivery price using Royal Mail Second Class service. We aim for 5 – 7 working days delivery from day of order

Economy Pricing is calculated from a flat fee per order plus a supplement depending on the total order weight. The flat rate per order is £3.50. The supplement is charged at £0.0025 per gram.

International Delivery “Defaults”

Palletized products are NOT AVAILABLE Internationally On-Line. If you wish to order International delivery for palletized goods please contact us via the “Contact Us” link or telephone the Sales Office on (+44 (0) 161 231 2875).
