Where Do We Deliver?
We deliver all our products throughout the UK and can deliver direct to the forest for larger orders. National couriers are used for smaller orders and hard standing will be required. We also deliver to any country in the EU, but phytosanitary restrictions prevent us from sending our plants out-with the EU.
How Do We Deliver?
Upto 1,000 Plants
For orders upto about 1,000 plants, we use national couriers who will deliver to any postal address. When we despatch your plants, we will send you an email with a code by which you track your delivery, or you can call us and we will advise you on progress. You can also tell us of any delivery instructions, such as leaving the package in a shed, so that they can still deliver if you happen to be out. Please note that although your phone number is useful if they are having difficulty locating your adress, we are not able to make them phone you ahead of delivery.
Upto 5,000 Plants
Upto 10,000 Plants
Our Sprinter van can hold 10,000 plants, or fewer there are sundries on your order. Our sales team will select the most cost efficient delivery system between the sprinter van and pallets depending on your order type and delivery location.
Over 20,000 Plants
For large orders, we will deliver by our own 17.5T lorry. During the busy season, we hire in an additional 17.5T lorry and often contract out larger deliveries to a fleet of artic lorries. Our own lorry has a integral forklift to help unloading. 17.5T lorries have a capacity of approximately 43,500 cell-grown plants and artics around 70,000.
Our experienced Sales Team will select the most cost efficient transport option for your delivery according to our transport and packaging methods. On occasion, you might consider speed of delivery to be more important than price and so you should speak with us to discuss if we can get our trees to you more quickly. Our transport pricing includes the cost of packaging and the total cost will vary depending on your location in the UK. We source bespoke quotes for EU deliveries.
