  • At the point of delivery an able bodied male* capable of handling a garage door must be present to assist the driver in offloading the door.
  • Every effort is made to deliver goods by the estimated delivery dates given. Due to constantly changing stock levels at the manufacturers, production processes and delivery logistics any delivery or installation dates given are approximate only and the Company accepts no liability for any such delay. We endeavor to deliver all our garage doors and products as fast and as efficiently as possible. Most of our doors are not off the shelf. They are made to order.
  •  Please enquire prior to placing your order if you have a specific time frame required for delivery.
  • We must be made aware of any delivery restrictions prior to order being placed. If the Customer fails to give the Company adequate delivery instructions then a re-delivery charge will be applied. Some of the manufacturers use large or even articulated lorries to deliver garage doors and need to know about any narrow, overgrown or one way lanes and driveways, double yellow stopping restrictions, any gated building sites that require manned entrance etc.
  • If prior notice of delivery is given and the Customer fails to take delivery of the goods then the Company may arrange to store the goods and charge the Customer for the reasonable costs of such storage and re-delivery cost. Manufacturers endeavor to give as much notice as possible prior to delivery but no specific time frame can be guaranteed. 
  • If door(s) are purchased on a Supply Only basis then we require an able bodied male to be at the delivery address to assist with the offload and to check and sign for the door(s). We phone prior to delivery with notice of date and approximate time. Please read carefully this delivery information page prior to ordering.
    If it is a Supply and Install order, then generally the fitter will bring the door to site on the day of the installation and dispose of your old door afterwards if required.
  • The Customer or their agent must thoroughly check the condition of the goods at the time of delivery. Goods cannot be signed for as “unchecked” or “unexamined”. If any damage is noted at the time of delivery, this must be written as clearly and as accurately as possible onto the delivery note.
  • Any damages or shortages notices after delivery must be reported in writing within 24 hours of delivery and shall only be rectified under the manufacturer’s warranty at the manufacturer’s discretion.

  • Delivery price is quoted at the time of order once we know the type, size and make of the door and the delivery address.
  • For delivery to Ireland, The Isle of Man, The Isle of Wight and any other part of the world please ask for quotation. We usually deliver direct to a customer’s pre-appointed shippers’ premises for the customer to arrange onward carriage.
