Our delivery lorries visit different parts of the country on different days, so once your order is ready we will work with you to arrange a delivery day for when one of our lorries is in your area. We will always arrange the delivery day in advance with you.
We deliver weekdays Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Our delivery vehicles will have multiple jobs on them which can affect the delivery time to you, depending on factors such as traffic and how long it takes to offload the previous jobs. The driver will call you in advance with an estimated time of arrival to make sure you'll be there.
We use an external haulage company to make our deliveries and because many customers have forklift trucks for offloading, as standard, the delivery lorries don't have crane arms on them (it's much more expensive to hire crane lorries, and we try to keep costs down so we can keep our timber prices low). Therefore, on the day of delivery we ask you to have enough person-power available, or offloading equipment, to lift the pieces off the lorry. We will arrange in advance with you when you will receive your delivery. We can certainly quote for separate delivery on a lorry with a crane if required.
The ordering process
After placing your order securely online you receive an email confirming the items you have ordered. When your order has arrived at iWood HQ and is ready for dispatch, we will give you a call to arrange delivery.
