Standard Delivery Process
The kit staircases are delivered direct to your door and the timescales are usually within 10-15 working days. The staircases are shipped from the Italian manufacturer and sent to a central depot in the UK. The delivery on to your address will be handled by a haulier local to you. This is all part of the built-in delivery service and you need to do nothing! Your contact phone number/s are passed to the courier for them to contact you beforehand and they should ring you to give you next day notice for the delivery. The delivery service is organised from Italy and the final delivery vehicle is usually an 18 tonne lorry with a tail-lift facility.
The staircase arrives securely packed in a palletised crate with any additional cartons for riserbars, balustrading etc. The delivery is kerbside only and the carrier will offload the consignment as close to your property as access will allow. The driver is not insured to carry any goods into your home. The staircases typically weigh over 150 kgs and customers often find it easiest to lift the lid of the crate and carefully carry some of the components into the property to lighten the weight of the crate for easier manoevering. From our customers' experience, we can say that this is not a difficult process and usually takes less than 15 minutes.
If there are any access problems at your property, please let us know when you place the order and we will liaise with you to organise the best delivery arrangements. It is important to organise this at the time of ordering as the carrier will make a charge to us (which will be passed on to you) for any changes of address once the order has been placed. A charge will also be raised and passed on to you, if the driver cannot deliver the goods because there is no-one at the the delivery address to accept the consignment.
SUMMER HOLIDAY DELIVERY DATES:
Please note that the Italian manufacturers all close for their annual summer holiday in August. The delivery dates for confirmed shipment before they close are shown on all the staircase pages. Our office will stay open as usual.
Can you be contacted during the day on the phone number/s you have provided?
Will someone be available to receive the consignment at the expected dates?
Do you have any access or delivery problems?
When you have arranged the delivery with the carrier, will there be an able person on site ready for the delivery?
Do you have storage space ready for the staircase crate?
If you live above the ground floor, do you have means to carry the staircase to your home e.g. a lift?
IF ACCESSORIES ARE ORDERED SEPARATELY FROM THE STAIRCASE AND NEED TO BE SHIPPED FROM ITALY, THERE WILL BE AN ADDITIONAL DELIVERY CHARGE OF £35.00 INC VAT.
It is possible for us to arrange a special delivery e.g. for a specific date and time, or weekend delivery, at an extra cost. Moving such large items as staircase crates is a relatively expensive process and we will obtain a quotation for you for any requirements beyond the standard service.
We have experience in shipping our products around the world, from USA to Hong Kong, and we can arrange for delivery to almost anywhere in the globe. Please let us know if you need an International Delivery and we will obtain a quotation for you which will also have to include maritime insurance.
