Long or Bulky Items, UK Deliveries – We try and keep delivery costs to a minimum. Unfortunately, certain items we supply are too long or bulky for the standard delivery network and incur an additional charge of £15.
We identify these as Long or Bulky items to you on the relevant product pages, the basket page and checkout page. If a Bulky item is found in your basket, the charge is automatically added as Bulky Item Charge to your cart totals breakdown, removing the relevant item/s from your basket will remove the bulky item charge. For example, Long and Bulky Items include certain Wheel Barrows, Hose Booms, Whips 1.2m+ and some Shavings Forks.
A maximum of one bulky item charge is applied to your order.
Deliveries outside of UK
Liquids and Aerosols - Unfortunately, we are often unable to ship liquids, aerosols or compressed Air Jacket canisters to all destinations outside of mainland UK as these destinations typically use air travel, there is a likelihood that parcels containing these items will be stopped by customs. Most European destinations are possible but in these instances we must use a by road service which sometimes takes a little longer.
Long or Bulky Items - We are unable to dispatch items identified as Long or Bulky on the product, basket or checkout pages to any destination outside of mainland UK, these products for example would include Wheel Barrows, Hose Booms, Shavings Forks etc. We identify these Long and Bulky items to you on the relevant product pages and also on the basket and checkout pages.
