Please advise West Country Fires if access to your property is restricted and will cause a problem for large lorries. Failure to advise this may incur additional charges.

Delivery of Product
Deliveries are made using reputable carriers and we will arrange delivery to any mainland UK address as designated on your order form. For security and health and safety reasons, it is required that someone is present to receive the goods in all cases. In the event of a ‘palletised’ delivery it is advised that at least two persons are present to accept delivery, as the drivers are only allowed to place the pallet at the entrance to the property. Unpacking and moving of goods is the responsibility of the customer, and the pallet is left for customers to dispose of themselves.
All deliveries require CHECKING AND a signature STATING ‘received in good condition’ as standard. Please open and inspect goods in the presence of the delivery driver, as the courier company have informed us that they will accept no responsibility for damage after the driver has left. Once goods are signed for they are deemed the responsibility of the customer, therefore checking the goods on arrival is VITAL.
If any parts are missing from the delivery, and can be proved to have been ordered in the first instance, then these also need to be reported by telephone and/or email within 48 hours of arrival. Failure to comply with this may incur further delivery charges for any parts missing.
Failure to advise us of access issues or road weight restrictions or your unavailability to accept the delivery on the pre-arranged day will incur a re-delivery charge of £50.00.
