2.0 Delivery Information & Delivery Times
Pallet Courier Delivery
In order to minimise damage and to ensure safe and secure deliveries of goods
by pallet courier, the customer or third party contractor to whom the goods are
being delivered, must ensure that the following criteria are met.
ground must be good solid hard standing (i.e. Concrete, Tarmac or Block Paving
ground must not be soft material (i.e. Soil, Gravel/Chippings or Lawn etc.)
ground must be fairly level and even (no sloping ground or potholes etc.)
must be enough access for a large vehicle - normally a Tail-Lift 7.5 – 18 Tonne
Large Goods Vehicle.
delivery will be made on a tail-lift vehicle with hand operated pallet truck
unless otherwise specified at the time of order,
will be delivered to the closest point of the property to the main highway. If
the property is a private dwelling this may mean on the pavement outside if
there is no frontage or access to a driveway. It will be the responsibility of
the customer or third party contractor to ensure that the goods will not cause
a safety hazard.
delivery driver will not unload materials off the pallets or 'carry' goods onto the property, this is the responsibility
of the customer/site contractor
· If the
delivery cannot be made due to nobody being on site to sign for the goods, or
the site is not accessible for Large Goods Vehicles and this results in the
goods being sent back to the delivery depot, a re-delivery charge will be made
(usually at least half of the original delivery cost)
guarantee can be made by Barton Fields (Patio & Landscape) Centre Ltd as to specific times for a delivery. Deliveries are usually made between 8.00am and 6.00pm on
the day specified to the customer. However, stated delivery dates are a notification of intent and not a guarantee of delivery, Barton Fields Ltd cannot be held responsible where a delivery fails to arrive due to events beyond our control such as traffic congestion, vehicle breakdowns etc. etc. We suggest where
possible you remain flexible on delivery dates and times.
· It is always recommended that you ensure goods are on site before engaging contractors to start any works.
Mounted Crane Delivery
· Our own Lorry
Mounted Crane Lorry that is used on a regular basis is about the same size as a
Fire Engine/Refuse Collection Lorry thus please appreciate that good access
adjacent to your property is required. Overhanging trees or narrow access points
can be problematic.
goods will be off-loaded by a mechanical crane to the front of your property
where it is safe to do so and at the discretion of the driver.
driver holds the right not to perform any manoeuvre that he / she feels is
un-safe and or could potentially cause damage to the goods, the property or the vehicle.
demand for the driver to drive onto your property that results in damage to any
part of the property incurs no liability to the driver or Barton Fields
(Patio & Landscape) Centre Ltd.
guarantee can be made by Barton Fields (Patio & Landscape) Centre Ltd to a
specific time of delivery. Deliveries are usually made between 8.30am and 4.30pm
on the day specified to the customer. Events beyond our control may result in a
delay such as traffic congestion, vehicle breakdown etc. etc. We suggest where
possible you remain flexible for delivery day and time.
articulated lorry / wagon may be used for larger / bulk orders and the same
principles apply. Please consider that very good access on site is required for
an articulated lorry (i.e. please tell us if you live in a small close/cul-de-sac/narrow
country lane, with many cars parked adjacent your property etc.)
2.1 Day of
Barton Fields (Patio & Landscape) Centre Ltd cannot be held responsible for delays in deliveries by third party companies (Pallet Courier Companies / Outside Hauliers etc.).
Estimated delivery dates are for guidance only. On occasion this may be
extended due to circumstances beyond our control. We will not accept claims due
to standing labour, loss of work days or any other situation should this occur.
Barton Fields (Patio & Landscape) Centre Ltd recommend that you order
materials and ensure they are delivered to site before contractors are booked to
start the works. Ensure your site is ready to accept the delivery before the delivery lorry arrives, it can be extremely difficult for the driver to 'drive round the block' a few times whilst vehicles and or equipment are moved to make space for ordered goods.

3.0 Damaged or Faulty Goods
In the unlikely event that you suspect damaged or faulty goods on delivery,
please notify us as soon as possible. Where possible if you have received
faulty or damaged goods please send us an email containing several images of
the product. We will deal with the matter according to your legal rights.
3.1 Paving Breakages
At Barton Fields we supply large quantities of paving and a large percentage of
this paving is imported from all over the world. In some cases you will receive
a small amount of slabs that may be broken within the crate or manufactured
slabs that may have hair line cracks etc. When ordering goods please allow
for a small percentage of these breakages, a reasonable allowance would be 5%.
Many contractors who lay paving on a weekly basis will try to use the broken ordamaged slabs for any cutting that is required on site. Breakages within a paving pack deemed to be excessive, must be reported to us
within 5 working days. Please try to use damaged/broken slabs for cuts where possible otherwise they may be unfortunately 'skipped' and end up at a landfill site.
3.2 Natural Products - Colours / Dimensions.
Whilst every effort is made to display accurate images on this web-site, many
of the products supplied by Barton Fields (Patio & Landscape) Centre Ltd are
produced from Natural Stone. Colours on an electronic device can often appear
different to how the colours of the actual product looks to the naked eye. To
be 100% sure that the colours are to your liking, please visit our display
centre where you can see the product. Stated sizes of products are nominal, actual product measurements can vary so please do not start any preperation work prior to checking the actual physical product measurements. Posting out samples can also cause a
problem as many ranges of natural stone paving vary tremendously from piece to
piece thus receiving one small sample slab can give a false impression. We do however offer a sample service. Postage and packaging will be charged and
can be paid with card. Product dimensions of landscaping products can also vary
and any dimensions given on the website are nominal and for guidance only. It
is worth speaking to our staff first before visiting the centre to make sure
the product you are interested in is in stock to view.
3.3 Timber Products
Wood is a natural product and therefore susceptible to changes in an
outside environment. Extremes of temperature or changes in weather conditions
will cause reaction in timber used outdoors. Heat may cause panels to lose
shape but this process will be reversed when temperatures subside. Posts and
Pergola timber may warp in higher than normal temperatures. This is perfectly
natural and in all but the most extreme cases normal shape returns. Sawn timber
and particularly machine-rounded items such as sleepers and palisades may
split. Natural timber will also contain knots and or knot holes. This is a
normal feature of timber and will not affect the structural strength of the
wood or the guarantee.
