Holidays / delays:

SEE THE LANARKSHIRE STORE PAGE FOR FORTHCOMING HOLIDAYS which may result in delays to dispatch and delivery times.  (usually school holidays)

Board cutting services :

Free service : we will crosscut a board into 2 approximately equal lengths,  less approx 0.5cm for the cut,  e.g a 235cm board will be sent as 2 pcs @ approx 117.25cm.  Double waney edge boards crosscut may not have parallel ends and thus the sizing may be more variable.

Charged services:  Other specified crosscuts and rip cuts –  see https://www.thewoodplace.com/product-category/custom-services/

  • Each product will show the delivery cost in the description field details (current at time of listing, put in shopping basket to confirm).
  • SIZE RESTRICTIONS  – PLEASE NOTE ALL STANDARD COURIERS HAVE SEVERE SIZE LIMITS ON PARCELS TO THESE AREAS –  usually 1.2m or 1.5m so be aware that we may have to ask you if we can cut long boards into shorter lengths for shipping or apply a surcharge to deliver longer lengths if that option is available.  Please select as short lengths as possible or email us with cutting to length (free of charge) instructions after ordering.   Full refunds are available immediately if you are not happy with having to have boards cut or a surcharge levied.  If you have a friendly island courier you can send or recommend and so negate cutting shorter, we are happy to work with you.

ZONE  C – Europe & Rest of the World :

The website is not yet enabled for automatic costing of shipping for these areas so please email us to get  a quote for shipping before ordering.  We will need the code(s) of the products you are interested in and the delivery address including postal / zip code.  Please note long lengths over 2m may not be possible to ship at an economical price so if you can choose short lengths or give us instructions to cut your boards shorter the price will be much cheaper.  USA :  currently there are severe US customs restrictions on our types of timber in the formats we sell it and so we are not shipping to the USA at present.

    GENERAL NOTES :

  • Holidays : If delivery time is likely to be longer (during holiday periods) you will be informed before  goods are dispatched.  Second half of July and Christmas / Hogmanay fortnight are usual holiday periods. We will post notifications on the Delivery Page and news pages.
  • Package weight : No maximum total consignment weight, but each package will usually be a maximum of approx 30kgs.  We can ship individual boards weighing around 40kg but you may need 2 persons to lift a package weighing over 25 kg.  Very Oversize parcels can be delivered by our special handling service with a delivery time of approx 10 working days.
  • Signatures : Try to ensure someone will be available to sign for all packages – the goods may not be left unsigned for unless it is under 15kg and 1.2m and then may be sent via Hermes and not require a signature.  Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a delivery day as most items are oversize for the courier services which offer one hour delivery windows.   Couriers may be prepared to leave the goods at an alternatve address where they can get a signature – we can add any such note to your package if you let us know your instructions.
  • Timed/ delayed Delivery : We can usually time goods to be delivered on specific days if requested, and given enough notice  although again we cannot guarantee this 100% as it is dependent on the collection,  transit and delivery stages all being without unforeseen delays.
  • Bad weather :  snowy or icy weather typically disrupts the courier service dramatically,  especially during exceptionally bad periods.  Please allow for this ;  you will be kept informed of any delays.
  • Packaging : we make up a bespoke DoubleWall cardboard box to fit your chosen items,  unless goods are small enough to fit in a standard small box.  This is expensive but is the most environmentally attractive packaging option.  DW cartons also assist our couriers & therefore help us get the best prices to pass on to you.  They also ensure your goods are protected from damage in most cases but in the event of damage to your item,  let us know asap, or within 24 hours of delivery.  Please recycle or re-use.  We often use pallet wrap around the timber also in order to prevent dampness in transit or storage warping the boards.
