Delivery

Important Delivery Information

Delivery drivers are carrying out COVID safe drops and will sign the delivery note on your behalf. Please ask the driver to wait whilst you check the crates for any damage. Each driver has 20 minutes per drop for this and if you find anything that may suggest damages, show this to the driver and ensure that they sign as ‘damaged’. If the delivery note is not signed as ‘damaged’ we’re not able to process any claims for breakages in transit.

– Our standard delivery method is a one-man, kerbside delivery service using a tail-lift and manual pallet truck to deliver onto a hard standing, level surface.

– Deliveries are typically any time between 9AM and 5PM.

– HIAB or Grab Lorries are not a part of our standard delivery method. If you require a HIAB delivery, please Contact Us before placing your order.

– We are unable to deliver onto grass, gravel or inclines.

– Please inform us of any access or weight restrictions within your area to ensure that your delivery does not fail. Any deliveries which are refused or fail due to non-compliance with delivery requirements will incur a re-delivery charge.

– Please check over your goods at the time of delivery before signing the delivery note/POD. If you believe that there an issue, accept delivery and sign for the goods as ‘Damaged’ to avoid any re-delivery charge and contact us immediately.

– Somebody must be available to check the goods on arrival and sign for the delivery. If you require your goods to be left unsigned for, please include written confirmation of this within your order notes.

– If you require your delivery later than the listed lead time, please contact us ASAP to avoid incurring any re-delivery charges or storage fees from your local delivery depot.

– We advise accepting delivery prior to booking any tradespersons on-site in order for you to check the product before use. You must check over your order before you begin work on your project for any issues to be resolved before you need to use the product.

– If you discover any breakages, we have a simple claims procedure for this which you can find HERE.

– Any cleaners, sealers or grout will be delivered separately to your paving.

Accepting Your Delivery

 

On arrival, check the goods for any visible damages with the driver present. If you find any visible damages to the crate, such as splintered wood or even if the crate is leaning slightly to one side, please sign the delivery note/POD as ‘Damaged’.

If there are no visible damages, we urge you to open the top of the crate to check for any concealed damage to the goods. If any concealed damages are discovered, please sign the delivery note/POD as ‘Damaged’.

To do this, simply write the word ‘Damaged’ next to your signature, whether on paper or on a handheld device. The driver may not have the delivery note/POD on them whilst manoeuvring the goods, so be sure to request this before they leave so that you can sign for the goods. We advise signing the delivery note/POD yourself and if the driver is signing on your behalf, always be sure to check that the goods are signed for as you see fit. Please note that signing as ‘Unchecked’ will not cover you for any damages discovered.

Unless otherwise stated, the signature confirms that the goods have been delivered in satisfactory condition and are free from any visible sign of damage.

Each driver has a maximum of 20 minutes per delivery for you to do this and you will be able to request that they wait for the full duration when necessary.

Customers are not expected to check every slab upon arrival, but it is essential to sign for the goods as ‘damaged’ in order to be able to make a claim for any breakages in transit.

Once the POD has been signed for as ‘Damaged’ you have 72 hours to raise a claim and we have a simple procedure for this which you will find HERE.

It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the goods are signed for as you see necessary. Please be sure that the person receiving the delivery is familiarised with our full procedure and always ensure that you have signed the delivery note before the driver leaves. If you have any issues at the time of delivery, please contact us ASAP so that we can advise you accordingly.

We always advise accepting the delivery to avoid incurring any re-delivery or return charges.

Deliveries are made kerbside and drivers will always do their best to move the goods to a suitable location for you. Please ensure that there is a suitable space for your goods to be left kerbside in the event that the driver cannot move the crates to another location to ensure that the delivery does not fail.

Please contact us to discuss any specific delivery requirements that you have so that we can arrange a suitable delivery method for your property.

Delivery Cost

Delivery is FREE* on full crates, to most of the mainland UK.

All made to measure orders for individual slabs and tiles will incur a £95 handling fee per pallet. This charge is to cover the cost of labour and materials to handle and repack your custom order. We provide this service to allow you to purchase exactly what you need and avoid spending extra money on an additional full crate.

Our website will automatically indicate the most appropriate delivery method and cost, based on your order.

Delivery costs will only apply at the cart or checkout page once your full delivery address and postcode are entered.

You can also use our Delivery Table to check for any surcharge to your area.

Delivery Times

Delivery times vary depending on stock availability. These can vary between 2 and 20 working days and estimated lead times for each product are listed on the product page.

Any order which includes less than a full crate will take an additional 2 working days for delivery due to the aspect of packing involved.

For Express Delivery and Saturday deliveries, the courier will not call you to book in the delivery but you will be kept up to date via text and email.

Please keep in mind that delivery times or dates may vary due to circumstances outside of our control, such as extreme weather conditions or traffic. In this case, we aim to inform you as soon as possible. Nustone is unable to guarantee any delivery dates as this is booked in between the courier and the customer.
