Delivery Guide

Update to Delivery Policy for COVID-19

We would like our customers to know we are still dispatching each morning. As a key supplier for fuel and animal welfare we will deliver as long as possible. 

Drivers will no longer take signatures on deliveries, and if the customer is not present the item will be left on site. 

If there are any special instructions please make sure they are on your order notes, the driver will maintain 2m distance at all times so therefore you can also shout instructions if needed. 

Please stay safe during this time. Simply Team. 

 

Access to your Property

Deliveries are contracted to be at the kerbside only. We try our best in every case to get as close as possible but please be aware that delivery onto the property is at the discretion of the driver on the day of the delivery.

Standard and Small Vehicles

Standard deliveries are undertaken in a 18T curtain-sider lorry. You must let us know on order if you require a small vehicle, or prior to dispatch so we can request the appropriate vehicle. 

Unfortunately we can no longer offer 7.5T Delivery vehicles for pallets of 975kg unless you own a forklift. This is due to a ban on pallets over 750kg from the RHA (Road Haulage Association). We are working on a solution but in the meantime we can deliver in a standard delivery vehicle as close to the property as physically possible.

Where do we deliver?

We ship all over the United Kingdom and can even ship to the outlaying islands if required (but please call us for a quote) 

 

Do you have a Surcharge?

Most of UK mainland postcodes are free of charge however we do have some exceptions.These are automatically applied when you enter in your shipping address. You will be able to view your total delivered price before you proceed onto payment. 

 

Can I get a Bulk Order Discount?

Order over 4 Pallets will qualify for a £5 per Pallet Discount. For order of 6 Pallets or more please contact us via email at info@simplywoodpellets.co.uk 

 

Delivery Terms & Conditions

You must be able to accept either a Curtain-sider Lorry or a 7.5T Vehicle. If you can only accept a 7.5T Vehicle then you must enter it in the order notes on Checkout. If you do not and require a re-delivery after an unsuccessful attempt you will need to pay a £25 re-delivery fee. Please also double-check your delivery address and phone number is correct. If the pallet has been sent to the wrong depot the additional cost is £70 to re-route it including an additional £25 redelivery fee.  

Refused Delivery

If a delivery is refused by the customer then the pallet will be returned to the depot and a refund made to the customer minus the delivery costs. 

Refunds for Damaged Items

If there is just a slight problem or issue, we are happy to work with you for a partial refund or a small amount of compensation depending on the nature of the problem and if you are generally happy with the rest of your order. Let’s say for example a few bags were damaged in transit and half of a bag was missing – we would of course refund you for the full amount of the pellets lost. It’s very rare things do go wrong, but we will always work to fix them until our customers are 100% satisfied.

Refund Process

In the very rare occasion that less than the number of bags are delivered than you ordered, please make a note of this on the delivery note before signing. Please note some pallets are packed with 5 bags per layer and others with 6 bags per layer. So make sure you are able to count them accurately.  

To be eligible for a refund claims for missing bags must be done within 24 hours of the receipt of the order AND noted on the delivery note alongside your signature. 

If there are bags that have become punctured, split, or opened during the delivery process please take a photos of the bags, or of them on the pallet. Please then send them through to us via email at info@simplywoodpellets.co.uk. We will expect you to conserve as much of the product left in the bag as possible but will fully refund you for any lost pellets. 

To be eligible for a refund claims for split bags must be done within 7 days of the receipt of the order. Photographs showing the amount requested must be emailed within this time frame. 

Returns

To be eligible for a return, the order must be in the original packaging in the same condition the courier left it. You will be liable for the costs in returning the order if there’s nothing wrong with it, however we can arrange the collection through our pallet courier provider to minimise your costs.
