Pallet Courier Info
The pallet courier is a good option for distributing products nation-wide. The delivery is made using a tail-lift vehicle and a pallet truck. The driver will deliver the goods on a pallet to the front of your property if access allows and providing that the front of your property has a suitable hard-standing area (not gravel / chippings). The pallet truck cannot be manoeuvred over anything other than hard-standing. Sloping ground is a problem thus the area in which the driver is to un-load must be even and level. Drivers will not off-load the product off of the pallet and or take the product around the back of your property. More information is available on this service in the terms & conditions section of this web-site.
Other Delivery Info
At Barton Fields we sell a huge range of different and diverse products, many of which are heavy and over-size. Delivery options are not always a formality thus we need to consider the options and liase with our contacts nation-wide in order to ascertain the best delivery method at the best price for you. Options include crane wagon hi-ab, Moffat (fork-lift) and 'man/women with van' courier handball off-load.
If you are local (live in the Midlands) we may be able to deliver the goods on a crane wagon hi-ab vehicle. For this service we charge a one off delivery fee that can sometimes work out better value than a pallet courier (the pallet courier charge is calculated per pallet - not as a one off fee)
We may also be able to offer the crane wagon hi-ab service nation wide if your order is sizeable / bulk.
For example, 15 packs of block paving or more. In this situation, orders can be delivered direct from the manufacturers premises.
