Delivery access:

Please inform us of any access or delivery challenges at the specified delivery address. Some of our vehicles are large commercial trucks with wide trailers that may not be able to reach smaller residential roads. Additionally, we may require help with unloading the products due to their size and weight.

Deliveries from our branch network and certain suppliers will be made to the nearest kerbside at the address provided to us.

Although we appreciate any assistance with unloading, it is done at the customer's own risk. rnold Laver cannot be held liable for any injuries that may occur during the unloading process..

Same-day collection is contingent on the items being available at your chosen depot during operating hours. Products marked as "in-stock" may not be immediately available at your closest depot and may need to be transferred.

We offer delivery to most areas within mainland England and Wales using our own fleet of trucks. Regrettably, Northern Ireland is not included in our delivery zone. Our deliveries are made Monday through Friday between 8 AM and 5 PM. Currently, we do not deliver on weekends.

Your order will be sent out as soon as possible, typically within 3-5 business days if the material is in stock. However, please note that any item requiring a stock transfer may add extra days to the delivery window.

At Arnold Laver, we make every effort to ensure prompt delivery of all orders. However, some of our Direct from Supplier products may have longer delivery times of three or more weeks.
