Delivery Information

Where do we deliver to?

Southern Sheeting operate our own fleet of delivery vehicles that cover most of the South East.  We can deliver Cedral weatherboard planks throughout this area (please see the map on the right to see the exact area we cover).

We also can ship Weatherboard planks by an external haulier subject to size of the order/offload capabilties. (maximum 100 boards)

For orders up to 40 boards we can ship with no restrictions as long as you have 2 people on site to handball the boards off the lorry.

For orders up to 100 boards, offload capability would be needed on site (either forklift or telehandler) as this is too much to be handballed off in a timely manner.

Any orders being placed for delivery by an external haulier will need to have a delivery disclaimer (sent at time of order confirmation) signed and returned to ourselves before delivery is booked.

Please call us if you have any further enquiries about delivery.

We can also deliver Weatherboard trims and accessories nationwide (UK mainland only) via other courier partners.  Unfortunatley we can’t deliver weatherboard planks via courier due to their length and weight.

How much will my delivery cost?

If your order contains boards and is being delivered on our own fleet, please enlarge the map on the right hand side. This will show you your delivery charge depending on your postcode.

If your delivery is just for trims or accessories, it can be sent anywhere in UK mainland for a fixed courier charge.  Large and heavy parcels containing trims will be charged at £35+VAT.  Small parcels for accessories such as paint, fixings etc will be charged at £15+VAT.

As you checkout the website will calculate your delivery charge for your depending on what is in your cart and where you want the delivery to go.

How long does delivery take?

Weatherboard plank orders delivered on our own vehicles are delivered on a 5-7 working day service.  Once your order has been placed it will be processed and an order confirmation emailed to you.  The order then gets scheduled via our transport department who will book a delivery date.  Our delivery driver will not turn up unannounced, the transport department will call you 3 days prior to your planned delivery date to let you know.  If the scheduled date is not convenient we will re-arrange this with you.

Orders for just trims or accessories can be delivered via a courier on a 2 working day service.  They will be picked, packed and despatched the following working day after your order and then delivered on a next day service.

What time will my delivery arrive?

Our own vehicles (who will delivery orders containing weatherboard planks) are on the road between 7am and 3pm Monday to Friday. We do not offer a timed service due to travel issues beyond our control. Most deliveries will take place between 8am, and 2pm and we ask that somebody is at the address between those hours and ready to accept delivery and help offload.  Should we be looking to deliver outside these hours (i.e. early morning) we will give advanced notification to ensure it is ok.  On request we can ask the driver to call you with 1 hour notice on the day of delivery.

Deliveries for just trims and accessories that are delivered via courier will be delivered anytime between 9am and 6pm on the day of the delivery.  Unfortunatley we cannot offer a timed delivery for this service and we are unable to track it on the day of delivery.  We ask that if you have ordered items to be sent via courier then you wait in at the address to sign for the parcel until it has been delivered on the day of delivery.

How will my delivery be unloaded?

We do operate a crane offload vehicle but this is usually reserved for heavy loads (100+ boards). Material will be stacked on the back of a flat bed vehicle in such a way that it can be offloaded with a forklift truck or similar if there is one available on site. Most orders will require offloading by hand, for this we ask that there is at least one (ideally two) able bodied people on site on the day of the delivery to assist our driver offloading. Note that deliveries take place curb side only as our drivers work to restricted work hours and generally do not have time to wait whilst material is moved to the rear of properties.

Can I collect my order?

Yes, you are welcome to collect your order from our depot in East Grinstead. All we ask is that you phone through the order prior to collecting and give us a couple of hours to pick and pack your order which will avoid any delays for yourself on arrival.
