We sent out the orders for delivery through courier ( Pallet Network Company). All deliveries will be made on a wagon that has a tail lift and a pallet truck. Access must be made for a lorry (up to 32ft) otherwise additional delivery charges may be payable. You must advise us of any restrictions that will impede the delivery vehicles from delivering the Products. The Products will be delivered to the kerbside outside. Our couriers are not insured to take goods onto your premises without permission. If you require the driver to come onto your property with the wagon, the Products, or both, this is entirely at your own risk and if the driver or wagon damages anything (including but not limited to, manhole covers, tarmac driveways, block paved drives, flagged driveways / graveled or stoned driveways, grassed areas, walls, pillars, gate posts, gates, trees, hedges, telephone wires, lights) the cost of repair will be your responsibility.
Ensure that the delivery area is flat and solid enough to take the weight of a pallet truck carrying up to 1000 kg in weight. Please note Gravel and Grass are not classed as solid and flat. If the delivery area is not flat the driver will require help in getting the pallets off the vehicle. If help cannot be given there will be a redelivery charge to deliver at a time when help can be given. If you live on a hill, then for health and safety reasons the pallet(s) may have to be delivered to the nearest flat ground. It will be your responsibility to move the goods to your property.
Re-deliveries and Damaged Goods
All deliveries need to be fully inspected prior to signing for them, this is for insurance purposes and any damages need to be noted on the signature sheet. If you are not at the delivery address to receive the Products or have not arranged anybody else to receive the Products on your behalf, the courier driver will not leave the goods. A surcharge will be made and also another charge will be made for the cost to re-deliver. The cost will be reasonable and will be charged at the courier rate only. If you refuse the goods or are unable to accept the goods at the time and a surcharge and a re-delivery charge will be made.
In a perfect world this wouldn’t happen, but as we all know, life isn’t perfect! Our stone is ethically sourced in India, it is crated up and will next see the light of day when you unpack it. In between it is transported from the quarry to the docks, put into a container, thrown around on the high seas for 6 weeks then unloaded in the UK. It travels to us, you buy it and finally we arrange transport to you. In all of that the odd breakage may occur, unfortunately replacement is not an option as these would certainly get broken in transit. Please remember most broken flags can be used for cuts and we, along with every other manufacturer and supplier recommend you allow at least 10% for cuts and breakages (and maybe the odd one you might not like the look of!) Because of this a refund or replacement will only occur in exceptional circumstances. However (and we do check), if there is significant damage then please let us know and we will do all we can to resolve the problem (significant damage is more than 10%). If you are ordering close to exactly what you want then please let us know and we will try and offer ideas and suggestions. I hope you appreciate our honesty and can be a little reasonable in return. Almost all flags will suffer small scuff or rub marks in transit, these are normally very minor and will disappear in a short time when laid.
Damage on Delivery
If you have a problem with your delivery and damage occurs or you suspect the product may be damaged then please sign the note as “Damaged on Delivery”. If you do not we cannot make a successful claim against insurance and ultimately replace any goods for you. Please sign “unchecked”.
Extra Delivery Options (Crane or Forklift)
Please note: We cannot offer the crane or forklift service for less than 7 packs/pallets
PATIO PAVING has access to its own fleet of vehicles which have the options of Hiab offloading (lorry with crane and grab). Some customers require this service as kerbside deliveries are no good to them. These services allow customers to have their goods delivered to places normal delivery companies cannot reach. Should you require one of these services then please ask and we will happy to quote you.
Timed Delivery Options
Normally the Delivery company, deliver the orders anytime between 9 am – 5 pm (Mon-Fri).
If required PATIO PAVING can offer special delivery timing services (Prices mentioned on the bottom of the page).
The options include:
– Next Day Deliveries (11am Cut Off , Full Packs Only & Mon – Fri, Excluding Bank Holidays)
– AM Deliveries
– Saturday deliveries
The availability and pricing of these options vary considerably but PATIO PAVING will always be able to advise you on the choices you have. If you are desperate and the 11am cut off has passed or you need a split pack, please phone as we may still be able to help. Orders placed over the weekend and on public holidays will be collected on the following working day and delivered on the appropriate selected delivery service.
With Timed delivery services there is a leway of 30 minutes either way of the specified delivery arrival time. This is set by the delivery networks and inaccordance with the Road Haulage Association rules and not by PATIO PAVING.
Any dates specified for delivery of the Products are intended to be estimates and time for delivery shall not be made of the essence by notice. However, once the monies have been received, we aim to deliver all orders within 7 working days, on orders placed before 11am, with most orders being delivered much before that. This is providing products are in stock. Our delivery company will contact you to arrange a delivery time and date. Delivery can be made to another address other than your billing address. [Please be sure to leave a contact telephone number should we need to contact you about your order.]
We are able to ship internationally but do have to price up each job specifically. We regularly ship to Jersey and Guernsey and various regions of France where our customers find it is still cheaper to buy from us rather than local merchants who dont have the range of stock that PATIO PAVING does. Size does not matter, we can ship a manhole cover or 28 tons of paving direct to you.

NATURAL STONE DISCLAIMER
PLEASE READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY. BY PURCHASING NATURAL STONE PRODUCTS, YOU SIGNIFY YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS NATURAL STONE DISCLAIMER. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY PART OF THE FOLLOWING NATURAL STONE DISCLAIMER, YOU MUST NOT PURCHASE ANY NATURAL STONE PRODUCTS.
Natural stones are products of the nature. Therefore, variations in color, pattern, texture and veining must be accepted. These differences and variations in stone should be considered as the beauty of natural stone instead of flaws.
Purchaser acknowledges that natural stones vary in color, pattern, and texture. The actual stone delivered may differ from the sample or picture(s) shown. The purchaser acknowledges that additional stone ordered at a later date can be more expensive and cannot be guaranteed to match the original stone.
All samples are provided to give a general idea about the color variation and veining. Most of our samples come in small sizes such as 4×4 and 12×12 and PATIO PAVING does not guarantee or provide full size (16×16, 18×18 or 24×24 or any other size) samples unless special arrangements are made with us.
RISK AND TITLE

Computer monitors often interpret colors in different ways.
We are doing our best to improve the quality of pictures in order to show our products as best as possible.
