Delivery Information

We aim to pick, pack and despatch your order as soon as possible once we receive it. We have different delivery arrangements which are tailored to the suitability of the products ordered:

- National orders are shipped via a courier for express delivery. We only dispatch plants on certain days to ensure that they spend the least amount of time possible in transit and reach you in the best possible condition.

- Certain items will only be available for local delivery due to their size or unsuitability for third party services. Once your order has been placed we will contact you to arrange delivery via our own delivery service.

- Gift vouchers and small items such as seed packets are sent out via Royal Mail’s Signed for 1st Class service.

The majority of our national delivery options fall under the options below. Certain oversized or age restricted items carry an additional delivery charge, however this will be clearly displayed in your basket before checkout.

Altico Bulk Bag Delivery Information

Free Delivery within Mainland England and Wales - Postcodes AB, HS, IV, KW & PH in Scotland, and PL, TQ & TR in Devon & Cornwall carry a supplement charge of £40 including VAT.

Delivery Period

Delivery will typically be made within 7-10 working days during Monday to Friday, 8am - 5pm. Altico will contact you via phone to arrange delivery. Once delivery has been arranged, if no one is available to provide a signature when delivery is being attempted, the order will be taken back to the depot and re delivered on another day – this will result in you being charged for the re delivery which is to be paid direct to the carrier. Any cancellations once the order has been despatched will incur a delivery charge plus a return to base charge.

Vehicles We Use

Delivery is made using a tail lift vehicle. This means the delivery point must be smooth and level with no slopes, and access must also be large enough to accept a heavy goods vehicle.

Unloading Of Your Delivery

Due to the nature of this product, delivery will be made to the front of the property to the nearest location. Drivers cannot carry the product inside your home or back garden. We can only deliver to the nearest kerbside or hard standing ground, and cannot leave the goods on a pavement or public road. The wooden pallet and bulk bag will be left with you to unload the aggregate at your own convenience, and will not be returnable when emptied.
