If you wish to delay delivery beyond our standard delivery timescale, you can select to delay the dispatch of your order for up to 4 weeks at the checkout.

Once your order is received, confirmed and you have received your dispatched email, our transport partners will contact you to give a date for delivery and approximate timing. These timings are normally met but sometimes traffic congestion and other circumstances can mean we are delayed and these are out of our control.

* Free delivery applies to UK mainland delivery addresses only.

If you prefer, you can collect from our warehouse location within 48 hours (Monday to Friday only) of your order being received by us subject to payment by cash on collection. If you pay by credit or debit card or Bacs you can collect from the 4th day after the order is placed and payment is cleared. Unfortunately, we cannot accept PayPal as a payment method for collections. Please telephone our customer service department if you want to use this option before placing your order on 01484 637 955.

BLINDS - Notice: Our blind supply has been disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic and cannot be delivered within the usual ten days. Please contact our sales team on 01484 637 955 for further information.

ACCESSORY ITEMS - (handles, catch kits and maintenance products) have a £4.99 delivery charge if purchased individually (ie: not with a door product). This delivery charge is for Mainland UK Only. If you require an accessory item to be delivered off the mainland, please contact us first so we can advise on the delivery change.

Door Order Acceptance

On arrival at your premises and before you unpack your new bi-fold doors; please check that there has been no obvious damage to the goods or packing by the courier or delivery company. If any damage is found please follow the procedures below:

  • If the bi-fold doors are clearly damaged - please refuse delivery and mark the delivery note or hand-held computer, as badly damaged and returned. Then call customer service on 01484 637 955 to let them know.
  • If only the outer packing has some damage - please accept the goods and mark the delivery note 'packaging damaged'.

You should unpack the bi-fold door set and check for manufacturing faults, defects or missing parts within 72 hours of delivery. You’ll find a full list of items you should have received in the assembly instructions included within the hardware pack. If you are storing the doors please make sure you repack them after checking.

If there are any faults, defects or missing parts please contact our Customer Services on 01484 637 955.

Please note: we keep a full stock of spare parts for immediate dispatch. There is no need to return the full set if a component is found to be defective or missing.

Door Storage

Our bi-fold door sets are heavy and each door weighs between 30kg to 60kg each. You will, therefore, need two people to carry them. When storing the doors and frame before installation, they should be handled with care and stored in a dry, ventilated building. They should be stored flat on a level surface - not on edge or on end.

Please Note: Unfinished products should not be stored or fitted in your home until any plastering, painting and so on has been finished and the room is dried out. The sets should be well finished and sealed against moisture entry prior to assembly and installation. For guidance on finishing and sealing your doors, visit our finishing information section or view the instructions in the Homeowners manual sent with your order or viewable in the downloads section.

Door Delivery Process and Conditions

We operate a professional two-man home delivery service.

All deliveries are to a single address as provided by you and if this is not the correct address we reserve the right to charge for re-delivery. All deliveries must be signed for by a person over the age of 18.

Delivery times are estimates. We will try our best to meet the outline delivery schedule but shall not be responsible for any failure to deliver ordered products within these time frames.

Deliveries over Bank Holiday periods and during the Christmas and New Year celebrations do not fall into our usual delivery times scales.

Once the goods have been collected from our warehouse by our transport company we cannot delay delivery further without incurring extra charges from our transport company as the delivery process has begun. This extra payment is your responsibility and will be required prior to re-arranging the delivery date.

Should we try and fail to deliver on the proposed delivery date because there is no one available to take delivery, or delivery acceptance is refused for any reason other than damage, then we reserve the right to charge for any further attempted deliveries, transportation charges or storage charge which we incur as a result.

We cannot accept claims for damage or scratched glass after 72 hours following delivery or after the installation has begun.

We recommend that you do not book fitters until your order has been checked and received.
