Dandy's Topsoil - Delivery Info
Here at Dandy's we deliver a couple of different ways... but we need plenty of access to start off - if you have tight access please call us before placing your order.
1) If you're in or near Chester then good news - we probably deliver to you for no additional charge (currently postcodes CH, some WA, some CW and some LL postcodes close to our HQ) and we'll more than likely use one of our own Dandy wagons - but please check first if you require a HIAB crane!
If you are buying special offer "Click & Collect" products then you'll need to pop on down to Dandy's HQ to pick those up yourself - CH1 6BS.
In the Chester area our delivery vehicles are 8 wheeler wagons that have a crane to offload bulk bags - the crane swings off the side of the wagon and has a reach of about 4 metres - with this in mind you can pop a note in the box when you checkout with instructions for where you'd like your bags leaving, give us a bell after you order or have a natter with one of our drivers on day of delivery.
2) Outside of Cheshire, Wirral and some North Wales shipping starts at £24 per bulk bag / pallet of small bags and we use a pallet courier. This might seem pricey but you'll more than likely pay similar costs anywhere else, it'll just be hidden in the price of the goods. The good news is that by splitting out delivery we've actually been able to lower our prices to the bulk of England and Wales!
That said - IF YOU SEE IT CHEAPER, please let us know and give us a chance to whip out a calculator, make a few calls and see if we can beat that cheaper price for you!
Outside of our 'local' area we deliver using a pallet network, there are a couple of restrictions to this, you'll need...
- a level, flat area for vehicle to park during offload,
- a flat, solid surface such as concrete or tarmac to offload on to, normally the roadside/kerbside,
- access for a pretty big delivery vehicle - usually an "18 tonner" which is considerably bulkier and longer than a bin lorry!
**Please note the palletised deliveries are not made with a crane so goods can not be offloaded over a wall or fence.**
If you've any concerns at all then give us a bell on 01244 280008, use our Live Chat or send us an email via the Contact Us page!
IMPORTANT - during very busy times, such as prior to a Bank Holiday, we may use our external pallet courier in our local "Zone 1" area, instead of our crane offload. Please contact us on 01244 280008 to confirm you need a HIAB in this area before placing your order as this can not be guaranteed.
What does "2 - 3 working days" mean?
If you order by 12noon Monday to Friday then that day will be included as a 'working day', after this time your order will be dispatched the following day - for example, orders placed by 12noon Monday will be delivered on Wednesday, after 12noon Monday then orders will be delivered Thursday.
However, this is just a general guide!
You can pick a preferred delivery date at the checkout to avoid confusion, or give us a tinkle on 01244 280008 7am - 5pm Monday to Friday, 8am - 12noon Saturday before or immediately after placing your order.
(Saturday and Sunday are not classed as 'working days'.)
