Luxury Wood is committed to making delivery of your order as simple and hassle-free as possible. Many of our products go out on pallets with a third party carrier, and often this means kerbside delivery unless the driver is willing to move the pallet with a ground trolley. The only exception is for items ordered from our Landscaping category, the majority of which we deliver with our own trucks using a Truck Mounted Forklift.  

Below are answers to the most common questions but you should call us if you have any questions.

How much will I pay for delivery? 

As long as the value of your order is over £50, your postal code is not in one of the Special Zones listed below, and you are not ordering from our Landscaping category, delivery is free. 

For customers who place an order with a total value of less than £50 or have requested delivery to a Special Zone, a surcharge is added according to the table below. You do not need to call us about this as any surcharges are automatically added to your order total when you check out online.

When will I receive my order?


Delivery of a pallet should always take place on the date that is agreed on with the haulier performing the delivery. It is the responsibility of your local pallet firm to keep to this date, without exception. If there is an attempt at delivery on a day other than the agreed date, or delivery is attempted without having 'booked-in' the delivery date with you personally, you are within your rights to refuse to sign for the order and have the haulier return on an alternative day, at no extra charge.

If you do not receive the 'book-in' call about your pallet delivery date within 3 days of placing your order, please call us. We can chase the order for you. All being well, the final delivery usually takes place between 3 to 5 working days from the date you placed your order with us. The only exception is products from our “Build With Wood” section. These are made to order and therefore you should allow up to 10-12 working days for these to arrive. 

For goods ordered from our Landscaping category, we will use our own truck and attempt delivery within 3-10 working days. In these cases, we will call you ourselves to organise the delivery date. 

Can I track my order?  

Yes. You can track the status of your order by entering in your surname and invoice number into our order tracking page. For any other issues, just call us on 0800 808 5888 or email us at  

Can I get delivery on a Next-Day or Saturday service?  

We can provide Saturday and Next Day service in some cases but there is a surcharge and you must organise this by calling us. Otherwise all deliveries are made from Monday to Friday, with the driver arriving between 8am to 6pm.  

Do you have to dispatch my order immediately or can you hold it for me?

We deal with high volumes and regrettably cannot single out specific orders for delayed dispatch. If you have ordered online or place an order over the phone, you can assume it has been dispatched on the same day.

Can I organise delivery for a specific time?

We cannot arrange specific delivery times however it may be possible to organise morning or afternoon deliveries for a surcharge, and you need to call us to arrange this. Otherwise, delivery will always occur between 8am and 6pm on a weekday. For orders arriving on a pallet, if you need to know an approximate time the driver will arrive, you may ask your local depot to call you on the day of delivery to give an approximate estimate (or call us and we will do this for you). You can also call your local depot on the day of the delivery and ask them to advise when they think your order will arrive. The contact details of the local haulier will be displayed on our order tracking page after the consignment has reached the local depot.

What if I am not home when delivery is attempted? 

For palletised deliveries, if you are not home on the agreed date of delivery, someone else will need to sign for the order. If there is nobody to sign for the order, the goods will be returned to the local depot. If we cannot contact you to arrange redelivery we will return the goods to our central depot and cancel your order. Please bear in mind that in both cases, redelivery and cancellations or palletised orders may incur additional fees.

I have ordered a pallet and I know I will not be home on the delivery day. Can I specify a safe place to leave my order; can it be left there without signature?

If you want your local depot to leave your pallet(s) without signature, you will have to explain to the delivery depot where you want the pallet left when they call you to arrange the delivery day. Although most depots will follow these instructions without any problem, please be aware that taking delivery of a pallet while you are not at home is done at your own risk, and we cannot be held liable if the depot does not put the pallet exactly where you want it, or if the goods go missing after delivery.

Is it possible to collect goods directly from your location on Darlton Rd in East Drayton?

Unfortunately not. Our facility in East Drayton is a logistics operation and is not safe for members of the public.

How do you perform delivery?

All products except those in the Landscaping category are performed with a tail lift vehicle (see below). Orders of products from our Landscaping category are delivered with a Truck Mounted Forklift (TMF). Both methods are described in detail below.

How is delivery with a tail lift vehicle made?

Your pallet/s will be offloaded from a lorry with a tail lift at the rear (see picture below). The pallet is moved with a special hand trolley from the tail lift platform onto the ground. Providing the surface is hard and flat, such as concrete, the driver may offer to move the pallet some distance. Please note that palletised delivery is officially a ‘kerbside’ service and therefore it is at the driver’s discretion as to how far it will be moved after it is rolled off the tail lift. The driver will not be able to move or push the pallet over soft or inclined surfaces, or in any case where safety is compromised.



Are there circumstances where a pallet delivery cannot be made?  

Yes. A pallet cannot be delivered with a tail lift:

- Onto soft ground such as grass, gravel, or soil.
- To a premises where it is illegal for a lorry to park or offload.
- Where the access road is on a steep incline.
- Where the access road does not provide 3m width clearance and 5m vertical clearance.

It is your responsibility to ensure that there is safe and clear access for the delivery vehicle. If the haulage company arrive at your address and face one of the conditions above, the driver may decide to cancel the delivery, and this may incur a cancellation fee to cover the cost of dispatching and returning your order to our central warehouse. If you are unsure as to whether your location is suitable for a palletised delivery, please call us to discuss. We will advise as to whether there is likely to be problems at the offloading point.


How is delivery with a forklift made?

A Truck Mounted Forklift (TMF) is a forklift which we carry on the back of our truck so that we can offload oak sleepers and any other products from our Landscaping Category. A TMF is extremely useful because unlike a crane we can travel a distance from the truck to place products where they need to be. Gravel, grass, and inclines are usually fine however very deep mud or very soft ground may present a challenge for the driver, and you should inform us if this is the case at the delivery site.

Forklift delivery - The Luxury Wood Company

Will you refund me if my order is damaged?   

If an order is damaged on arrival the haulier will return it to our warehouse, providing you make a note on the delivery documents and refuse delivery (photographic evidence is very useful also). If you accept delivery despite obvious damage you may be then required to organise returning the products yourself. In all cases we will provide a refund or appropriate compensation for faulty goods or goods damaged in transit.
