Do You Have Clear Access ?
You MUST have Clear Level Access to where the building is to be erected. This must have a clear, level walk of no more than 20 m. We do NOT Include lifting Heavy Sections over Garage Roofs or up Steep Gradients, Up or Down Steps. Nor, through your Home it self. We will need to know in advance if extra staff are required to assist. There will be an additional charge for this service. This must be paid in advance.
You will allow us full access to your drive way or access road . If you have block paving or pressed concrete driveway and do not wish our truck to drive over this you will need to pay for an extra member of staff to assist with the extra carrying of any heavy bulky sections . There is a minium fee for £60 for this service .
What Time Do You Deliver – Unfortunately, we are unable to give times for arrival. This is due to our van’s having multiple jobs on the same day. We will endeavour to try and give you a rough time scale, but please do be aware that previous jobs may roll on longer than expected and push you back a little.
Free fitting will be included on all buildings purchased through City Centre sheds.
For this FREE service we will carry the building in and assemble it to a high standard. Your shed will be left in a water tight and useable condition .
If you have concerns about, splinters, uneven surfaces (especially with Children’s play houses or the likes ) you are advised NOT to let the child enter that building until YOU the building owner have made safe any items you deem to be un safe for your child to use .
We DO NOT construct or finish any Children’s playhouse to HSE standards we will only erect the shell of the building for you the owner to make the building safe enough for your child to use.
Paid For Fitting Services
If you are looking for a higher quality of finish, then our team will need to spend more time on site . This will cost you more money . This extra service is NOT included in prices quoted on our web sites .
We have a minimum charge of 20% of building cost with a min £80 fee to spend more time finishing and touching up beading , sealing and so on. If you are an ex engineer or the likes who is used to working in fine tolerances, you must understand we are dealing with Timber which is a natural product and NOT a man made one, so tolerances and miss matches will happen – that simple. If you can not live with these facts then we can only suggest to buy a plastic or metal building that has been engineered to finer tolerances.
Children’s Play Houses
This extra service is NOT available on children’s play houses. We will gladly supply a building and erect the shell of that building for you to safely complete yourself.
You just need to use a bit of common sense when considering the size of building you want . There may well be a be case when it is totally impractical to get the size building you want due to restricted access issues. Like taking through a house and trying to turn tight corners with long , tall , heavy sections.
In this case, it may be possible for the building to be made in smaller sections. There will be an extra charge depending on the size of the building and the complexity of its structure.
We have NOT priced for our buildings to be lifted over Garages / Tall Walls or Other Obstructions. If you feel you could not lift one of our sections. Say the size of a large Fencing panel, but many times its weight. Then it is likely that you will require a special delivery service which will involve providing extra staff and at an extra charge. We have a minimum charge of £80.
We must also point out that if the walk from where the truck can unload, to the place where you intend to site your new building is any more than 40m, there once again may be an extra charge simply due to the amount of extra time the staff will need to spend on site.
When we price a job is done on an average, it is impossible for us to know what your access is like or how far away it is from where our Truck can park unless you tell us in advance. The lads are very good at their jobs and are strong and helpful – fearless in fact when it comes to sheds and workshops.
Note: As standard, our floor bearers will run the length of any building. If you are intending to place your new shed or workshop, on additional bearers/sleepers, then they must run the narrow direction. If you are not sure in any way, please contact us for further advice.
We need to know this fact before we make the building and load the truck. If you have laid any additional bearers in the long direction so we can make our floor with beams going the opposite way. There is no extra charge for this service.
Please pay special attention to the information below.
We will NOT deliver buildings if we have to pass nearby to conservatories. Unless you agree, that any possible damage that may be caused lifting our heavy section over, or near the Conservatory will be your liability.
Just use this guideline –
Do you think you or a friend could lift and move these heavy bulky sections yourself in that tight space, then how can you expect us to do so?
The onus is on you the client to inform us in advance of issues pointed out above, and not to leave it until the time of delivery! We are not mind readers, nor do we have any way of knowing the conditions we have to work in. So please, give this some thought in advance as it all makes the whole process run more smoothly.
If we arrive at your site and you do not have a suitable level base ready, then we will simply deliver the building for you to erect it your self.
If you require us to return there will be a minimum £60 charge payable in advance for local deliveries. Anything further afield may well cost you much more, to cover fuel and all that labor charge while they are traveling to you and not working on other jobs.
If we arrive at your site and can not get the building in by normal means, you will have two options.
- We will just leave the building in your front Garden or Driveway for you to sort getting the building in your self. If you then require us to come back and erect it you will still be required to pay the call out fee, min £60 usually 20% of the building cost.
- Your second option is to return the building for which there will be a minimum charge. This depends on the size of the building and whether or not it is a stock building or Custom made. If custom made there will be No Refund what so ever as this building has been made especially for you under your instructions and access issues are all clearly indicated in our T+Cs and general guidance/delivery pages. If it is a stock building you will be charged for our time and expenses delivering the building to you. Min £60 but may be more depending on where we have to travel to.
We do try to be as helpful as possible, but we are running a business and not a charity. We have large overheads and our staff sat around waiting with clients expecting us to wait because they have not got things ready before we arrive is not being reasonable you will agree. The odd problems do occur and we all understand this. But please try and see our point of view. There may well be other clients waiting for deliveries after you. Imagine you were one of those clients
We do have some set Fees / Delivery Charges for Popular Delivery Areas.
