If you wish to book your delivery for more than four working days in advance, please state your desired delivery date in the additional information box at checkout. If no date is entered the delivery will usually take place within 4 working days. A contact telephone number MUST be entered with the delivery details, to enable the delivery company to confirm the delivery date. If a telephone number is not provided the order will remain unprocessed until a time that we are provided with one.


1.All deliveries are made to the nearest flat kerbside.
2.Deliveries will be made using a tail-lift and NOT on a hiab crane.
3.All deliveries must be paid for prior to delivery, the driver will not accept any money.

4.If the customer is away and un-contactable, the courier will attempt to leave the item in a suitable place. UK-Gravel is NOT responsible for goods left at your property after delivery.

5.Access MUST be suitable to accommodate a rigid vehicle with tail-lift facility. You must ensure that the delivery vehicle can easily access the point of delivery and that this will be on a solid, even surface. The manual pallet trucks used cannot operate on uneven surfaces such as gravel or grass, inclines or declines. If the courier cannot make the delivery for reasons stated above, it will be taken back to the depot and will either be re-delivered on another day or returned to ourselves. This will incur a re-delivery charge of £40.00 (which is to be paid before the receiving of the goods) or a returns fee. The returns fee is charged at the original delivery cost charged to UK-Gravel plus the return fee. This will vary depending on the delivery area and so will be charged accordingly.

7. Goods must be inspected before signing. Any damages to the product must be highlighted on the delivery note and given back to the driver.

11.The delivery can be made from 08:00 - 18:00 unfortunately we are unable to provide timed deliveries or ETAs.
