Delivery & charges

Delivery charges vary depending on the value of your order and your postcode and cannot be refunded unless the goods you ordered were delivered damaged or faulty.

How we deliver

We typically deliver goods using our own fleet of vehicles ranging from 18 tonne rigid trucks to articulated trucks and trailers. Most of our vehicles incorporate a demountable forklift truck for unloading on suitable ground. If you specify a small lorry, our small lorries are 18 tonne. This is the same size lorry often used by leading builders merchants, if something smaller than that is required then please contact us or make us aware of your requirements at checkout. Please note:

  • If access to your delivery address is restricted, please let us know when speaking to the delivery team.
  • Our drivers are instructed not to take their forklifts or vehicles off a hard road surface.
  • We are unable to place materials inside buildings such as sheds or garages, due to the increased risk of damage to property when manoeuvring the forklift.  We are also unable to transport products through a property.
  • Standard deliveries will only include one member of Jacksons staff and the use of a forklift.
  • Our drivers will make every effort to deliver the goods as close as possible to the desired destination on your property using the demountable forklift truck. If that is not possible due to road surface or other conditions, our drivers are instructed to unload the goods beside, or close to, the vehicle on firm ground.
  • If you are concerned this leaves your goods in an unsecured location, please inform our head office transport team as soon as reasonably possible on 01233 750393 to discuss an alternative delivery time, when you can ensure you have arranged for someone to help move your goods to a secure location.

How long after you place an order can you expect delivery?

We aim to deliver your goods to you within 30 days of accepting your order. Standard stocked items would normally be delivered the next time we are scheduled to deliver in your area. We will do our best to fit our delivery schedule around your requirements. If you have a specific deadline please talk to one of our Sales Team on 0800 408 2234.

Do you have to be in when we deliver?

Not necessarily, if you are happy for us to leave the goods. However, this will not apply in the case of Express or Overnight deliveries, as a signature will be required.

Please note that once the goods have been delivered to your premises, ownership and liabilities arising from ownership transfers from us to you.

Delivery notifications

We will advise your approximate delivery date/time by SMS Text, Email or Telephone; this is usually on the afternoon prior to our vehicle setting-off on a 2 day delivery schedule. We aim to cover most areas of mainland UK most weeks, but do not have set days for any given area. If after a delivery notification you are unable to receive a delivery, please inform our head office transport team as soon as reasonably possible on 01233 750393 to discuss alternative arrangements. Please note that we cannot receive replies to notifications sent by SMS Text or emails as this is an automated system.
