Our in-house delivery service for ‘in stock’ items is typically 3-5 working days, we aim to deliver as quickly as possible. Sometimes we are able to deliver at shorter notice but this is not always possible, please plan ahead. You can see more information about our delivery service here. https://bendreybros.co.uk/delivery-information
We are based in Bristol (BS30 5JW), we use our own vehicles for local deliveries in these areas https://www.bendreybros.co.uk/delivery-rates.
We can offer nationwide parcel and pallet delivery for small items, we can also arrange for a private courier or haulier for nationwide and/or bulk delivery.
Yes, we can deliver direct to site.
If you need the ordered materials to be available when you arrive on site, we recommend that you request goods to be delivered the day before the project is due to start to prevent any delays.
No, we try our best to accomodate customer requests, unfortunately it is not always possible or practical to arrive at an address at a particular time.
When you place an order with us for delivery, initially we will book a delivery day. We normally arrange our delivery routes 1-2 days before delivery is due. At that point we will know what each of our delivery vehicles is delivering, where they are going and the order of their drops. Delivering timber is not as straightforward and predictable as delivering small parcels but if you call us the day before delivery is due, we should be able to give you an indication of estimated delivery time. On the delivery day, our delivery driver will call you when they are on their way to you.
