If you require further details or specific supplier information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
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.
Although we appreciate any assistance with unloading, it is done at the customer's own risk. Thornbridge Timber cannot be held liable for any injuries that may occur during the unloading process.
Same day collection:
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. It's recommended to confirm that your order is ready for collection by contacting the relevant depot prior to your visit. If an item is out-of-stock, the depot will inform you of the earliest collection date. The possibility of collecting within 24 hours of placing an order cannot be guaranteed, so please contact email@example.com or your chosen Collection Depot to confirm availability before ordering. If you need the materials within 24 hours, it's important to reach out to the Collection Depot ahead of time to verify same-day or next-day collection options
Delivery times & days:
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.
Extended lead times:
At Thornbridge Timber 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. If you place an order for a product with a longer lead time, we'll keep you updated on the expected delivery day. If you need specific information regarding delivery, please reach out to us through chat or email on the details below.
