We know from experience that delivery arrangements are hugely important to our customers. That is why we are as flexible as possible to provide a delivery service designed to give you complete peace-of-mind. On this page you will find answers to all of the most commonly asked questions relating to our delivery process. If there is anything else you need to know please give us a shout and we will be happy to help you!
We strongly advise allowing some time to elapse between receiving your goods and scheduling a tradesperson to fit them. This will enable you to ensure you have everything as ordered at the right quality ready to fit. If for any reason there is a delay or things aren't as they should be, there will be time for the situation to be rectified without impacting the agreement you have in place with your fitter. Every effort is made to ensure a successful delivery on your chosen day, but there are instances where things don't quite go to plan, and we (Skirting 4 U LTD) cannot be held responsible for any impact (financial or otherwise) to your arrangements with tradespeople or other third parties.

Please note: Orders being delivered to the Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Scilly Isles, and the Scottish Isles are not possible to guarantee a specific delivery day. The courier service operates on a 3-5 day basis for these areas rather than the usual next-day service. We will dispatch your order a day prior to your selected delivery date, but please be aware that your order may take up to 5 days to arrive once dispatched from us, thank you.
Will I know what time my order will be delivered?
We will send you an email once your goods have been dispatched. This will include any tracking information associated with your order so that you can easily stay up to date with the progress of your delivery. Unfortunately, we are unable to specify an exact delivery time- deliveries take place from 8am-6pm. Having said this, our delivery partner will usually get to you before 2.30pm. If your order has not reached you by this time on the specified date, we will be able to contact the delivery driver directly to get you an estimated delivery time and let you know. Please be aware that for insurance reasons our carrier partners do not take deliveries inside the property.
UPDATE: We are now able to offer a pre-9.30am or pre-10.30am delivery slot for a small surcharge. If you would like this service please give us a call and we will arrange it for you.
What happens if I am out when the items are delivered?
There are a couple of options available if you know you are not going to be around, or if you have to leave the delivery address for a period of time on the delivery date.
If there is a safe place on the property for the goods to be left we can arrange for the driver to leave them for you. The goods will be securely wrapped to protect them from any damage or poor weather conditions.
If there is nowhere on the property suitable for the goods to be left, we can also make arrangements for the goods to be left with a neighbour if this is a possibility. Again, let us know if this is something you would like to happen and we will make the necessary arrangements with the driver.
Please note that we deliver to UK Mainland only. We cannot deliver to Scottish Islands, Northern Island, Highlands, Channel Islands, Isle of Man or Isle of Scilly.
