Delivery Terms & Conditions
At C&W Berry, we endeavour to provide the shortest lead time possible for our customers and can often deliver within 2 to 3 working days for heavy goods. During peak trading periods, our lead times can exceed in advance of one working week due to the volume of orders placed. This can be rectified by using parcel carriers on smaller items that are available for national delivery. In this instance, delivery will usually take up to 5 working days if available and in stock.
Delivery times are always subject to product availability. We list a large number of items available for special order and with these come supplier dependant lead times. Please also be aware that products that may need to undergo processing, such as treated timber will need longer to be ready for delivery.
When placing an order with us online, we will always send you an email once processed to confirm the planned delivery date. This is only an estimate and is subject to change. In the event of this delivery date changing, we would always endeavour to inform you as quickly as we can.
