4. Price and Payment
4.1 The price of the goods do not include the price for delivery. When we display a “delivered price” this is the price of the goods and the price of delivery combined, all product pages and order forms display the price of the goods and price of delivery.
4.2 The price of delivery for the goods is for delivery to the exact postcode entered by you on the “How many bricks and where to?” page of the website,the quoted price is only valid for delivery to that postcode, if you require the delivery address to be changed after placing an order an additional charge may be made.
4.3 All prices quoted by the website are for the quantity of unit specified by the website. This quantity may not be exactly same as you entered on the “How many bricks and where to?” page. If the quantity quoted is not the same it is because we can only supply in complete packs of the required product, the quantity supplied will be to the nearest complete pack.
4.4 Occasionally an error may occur with our web site and goods may be incorrectly priced in which circumstances we will not be obliged to supply the goods at the incorrect price.
4.5 We must receive payment for the whole of the price of the goods you order, and any applicable charges for delivery, before your order can be processed unless we have agreed otherwise in advance in writing.
4.6 Prices are inclusive of VAT unless otherwise stated.
4.7 Samples are available, however there may be a charge for sending a sample to you.
5.1 While we endeavour to only allow products to be sold when we have the level of stock available to meet your order, we reserve the right to cancel the contract between us if we have insufficient stock to deliver the goods you have ordered. In such cases we will inform you as soon as possible and refund the price paid for such goods as soon as possible and in any case within 30 days, or in the case of an account customer, we may, in our absolute discretion, as soon as possible raise a credit to offset the amount invoice to you.
6.1 We will deliver the goods in accordance with your order usually within the stated delivery time but certainly within 30 days. In the unlikely event that we are unable to make the goods available to you within 30 days of accepting your order we will contact you to inform you. You will have the choice of agreeing a revised delivery date or cancelling the order and receive a full refund for the order.
6.2 Deliveries are made Monday to Friday between 08:00 and 18:00 (excluding bank holidays). Whilst we can offer in some instances a next day delivery, we cannot guarantee timed deliveries.
6.3 Deliveries will be made to the address stated on the order.
6.4 Only a delivery to the kerbside can be guaranteed and you are responsible for moving the goods from the kerb-side. We, or our agents, will do their best to deliver closer to the property if access allows. Delivery does not include carrying goods up paths, to rear gardens or into dwellings.
6.5 For deliveries that are made by a small rigid lorry with tail-lift (please see our delivery information page for detailed description) a manually manoeuvered pallet truck is used to manoeuver the goods off the tail-lift to kerb-side delivery point, therefore you understand it is only possible to unload the goods on to a hard, flat and level surface, this excludes gravel, grass or slopes of any kind. If you have placed an order and the delivery point is unsuitable you must contact us as soon as reasonably possible, to arrange a more suitable delivery method.
6.6 Access to the delivery point must be on hard road over which a vehicle can pass without sustaining or causing damage of any kind. It is your responsibilty to let us know if there are any access difficulties, such as low bridges, narrow single lanes, weight limit roads, steep driveways or hills.
6.7 If a customer wishes for any vehicle to leave the public highway and enter their property or premises of delivery then the customer accepts liability for any damages caused to the property, vehicle or other.
6.8 The delivery vehicle must be able to park in the area that the delivery is to be made. If you require delivery on an off road route or road that has restricted unloading it is your responsibility to inform us as soon as is reasonable possible after placing your order, and it is your responsibility for gaining any permits, if required, for stopping and unloading of your goods. It is your responsibility, in some areas of the UK, to obtain a permit from your local council to have bulk items left on the kerb-side.
6.9 We reserve the right to cancel or hold any orders that we deem may suffer from potential delivery problems and you understand that delivery dates may be delayed in these instances.
6.10 You, or somebody appointed by you, should be at the delivery point to accept the delivery.
6.11 All deliveries, unless the delivery vehicle is a large brick lorry, have a 20 minute window for unloading the goods at the delivery point. If the delivery vehicle is a large brick lorry the delivery has a 60 minute window for unloading the goods at the delivery point. If the unloading is delayed the delivery may be cancelled.
6.12 We reserve the right to charge you an additional charge where:
- for any reason, the delivery vehicle is unable to unload at the delivery point
- you, or somebody appointed by you, redirects a delivery vehicle
- delivery cannot be made because of unsuitable access or unsuitable unloading point, or in relation to clauses 6.5 and 6.6 inadequate information was provided
- if the delivery cannot be completed within the delivery window, as defined in clause 6.11.

In spite of delivery having been made, title in the goods shall not pass to you until you have paid the price for the goods in full and no other sums whatsoever shall be due to us from you. Until title in the goods passes from us, you shall hold the goods on a fiduciary basis as bailee and shall store the goods at your own cost separately from all other goods in your possession and marked in such a way that they are clearly identified as our property.
