Fuel Delivery Terms & Conditions
DURING THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC PLEASE ALLOW LONGER FOR DELIVERY DUE TO THE HIGH DEMAND WE ARE CURRENTLY FACING.
We usually dispatch orders the same or next day & you should receive delivery within 3-4 working days of dispatch.
A daytime contact phone number is required to organise any delivery.
Delivery is made by a lorry with tail lift. The pallet is transported on a pump pallet truck from the roadside to your driveway entrance. Due to the weight of the pallet they cannot be moved on gravel drives etc. Only on hard firm, level surfaces.
If you have a shingle or grass driveway the pallet will be left at the front of that driveway.
The driver is not responsible for handling the bags so please ensure that you have the labour available to do so. However they will usually make every effort to get the pallet where you want it, within reason
If you can only be reached by sharp bends, narrow driveways etc. you must inform us when ordering, as alternative arrangements may need to be made.
The pallet / crate is non returnable.
We contract the delivery out to a pallet delivery company and are not liable for any damage caused by this company.
We will accept returned goods within 7 days of delivery that are in undamaged, unopened & unused condition. All goods must be returned to our premises. We accept no responsibility for your costs of returning the goods.
If a delivery is attempted and failed (due to either there not being somewhere suitable to leave the pallet, or no authorization given to leave the pallet) then you will be 100% liable to any costs that will occur with re-delivery.
