Delivery Information

Standard Delivery is currently between 3 - 15 working days.

Next Working Day may be available depending on your location; please select an option at the checkout (this will vary during Christmas and over bank Holidays).

We use a variety of delivery vehicles and haulage firms to complete our deliveries.

If you live in or near Chester, we'll deliver to you ourselves with a HGV crane, if you live elsewhere in the UK we'll use a pallet network who will use a manually operated pallet truck to move the pallet of bag(s) to the kerbside or onto a level, solid surface such as a tarmac drive (not gravel or grass sorry).

Shipping is free to Chester and some North Wales postcodes - outside of this area prices start at £19.95.

If you have any questions or if you have tight or restricted access, just give us a call on 01244 280008 or send images to

Product Disclaimer


We do not chemically treat our products for weeds. Weeds thrive in warm, wet weather and especially in very fertile soils and composts like our own. Although every care is taken to remove weeds during our screening process we can not guarantee that weed seeds are not present in the soil or compost that you receive. To keep your topsoil organic we suggest pulling up common weeds, when and if they appear, instead of using chemical weed-killers. Or purchase some of our anti-weed prevent membrane and some gravel or mulch, for an easy weed-free garden!

Gravel/Stone Size & Colour

Images are for representation only.  All products that Dandy’s supplies are naturally occurring products and may have slight variations in colour, size and content, individual rocks, stones or cobbles made be broken or misshaped because of this. Sizes of products specified are approximate and can vary.  Naturally occurring products such as slate, natural stone paving or gravel are sourced from quarries and so can often differ in appearance slightly from load to load.

Jonathan B. (Gloucester)
Excellent customer service

The local logistics company, Palletforce, attempted to deliver 500 kg of sand on a completely inadequate pallet which collapsed. This meant it could not be offloaded from the lorry except by shovel and wheelbarrow. I am a wheelchair user but my wife is very strong and my neighbours very helpful. My feedback to the delivery company was completely ignored but Dandy's responded immediately and reimbursed the delivery charge without delay. Well done!

Katarzyna S. (Menai Bridge)
Great playsand and reliable service

I ordered 500kg playsand based on competitive price. The delivery charge was comparable to the other companies. The sand is lovely, smooth, clean and entertains kids forever. The delivery service was smooth and on time.
