Do I need to be home for my Waltons Delivery?

You do not need to be home for your delivery. All we ask is that you let us know via fax,email or signed note to let us know that you will not be present for the delivery. In the note please let us know where a suitable place would be to leave the building. If you leave us a note our delivery drivers will ring you 30 minutes before delivery and you can inform them of where the note is or you could just leave it on your front door. You can ask our delivery drivers to leave your order in your front yard or by the side of your home. Our delivery drivers are NOT allowed to place your shed in your back gardens even if the gate is left open. You can also ask for the order to be delivered to a close neighbour’s home if that is more convenient. Please also include your signature on the note; our drivers can then take photos of the note to confirm an items has been delivered.

Will I need to help my delivery driver?

Our drivers DO NOT need your help during a delivery. They will not ask for your help and they can manage all the items themselves. We are not insured to cover any customer injuries and therefore we ask you NOT to help or try and help our drivers while they make a delivery.

What access is needed for my delivery?

Our drivers are only contacted to provide kerbside drop offs and deliveries. They will NOT bring any of our orders through your home. A driver may offer to take an order further; for instance a back garden but this is ONLY at their own discretion. If you have added our Installation service to your order please be aware that they will require full access to your garden. Our Installation team will not bring a building through your home as they are not covered by insurance to enter a customer’s home. If you have any questions about access or you live in a restricted access zone please contact our Sales Team on 0800 0142 333. Our team will be able to provide you with more information and specific building information.

How are Log Cabins delivered?

Log Cabins usually take a bit longer to deliver than most of our other products. This is because they are put into production when ordered. You should expect to receive a delivery call within 28 working days of placing your order. Please allow enough time for our team to call you.

Our Log cabins are delivered on the back of various different sized vehicles, depending on the size of cabin. Generally, the largest sized vehicle we deliver on is 17t truck, which is the same size a Dustbin lorry.  The windows and doors are pre-assembled. The wall roof and floor pieces will be offloaded one piece at a time. Please remember that this is kerbside delivery only, so the customer will be required to move the parts to the rear of the property.

There must be sufficient space for the vehicle to operate safely. If you are worried about your home not being easy to access please contact our team on the number or e-mail address below.

All Waltons deliveries are all Kerb Side ONLY. Our drivers are helpful and will always try and place the building in a convenient position for you. It is entirely at our driver's discretion if they decide to move the building somewhere inside your property. They are not authorised to deliver items through someone's home.

Please always provide the most convenient telephone number when placing your log cabin. Our drivers may need to contact you about your delivery a few days before it's due. Also our drivers call 30 minutes before delivery.
