The Games are nearly here are you ready?



We are making final plans to minimise any inconvenience to our customers due to the predicted traffic congestion that may occur.  We are bringing forward our factory working hours and we have arranged extra collections for customers’ orders through the day.

We do however need your help, especially if you are located or are working on a site near any of the Olympic venues – you must plan ahead. Do not presume that it will be just London that will be affected so please check dates, times and venues of Olympic events in your area.
We will always try to help but from what we hear it is likely congestion may interrupt or delay deliveries.

We would also like you to consider the following:-

  • The cut off for the same day deliveries will be brought back to 1200 hrs.  We will accept orders after this time but we cannot guarantee next day delivery.
  • Our courier cannot ‘guarantee’ timed morning deliveries – they will obviously do their best to achieve them.
  • The courier company delivering customers’ orders is making arrangements to avoid any congestion with the extra traffic by leaving the Dartford area earlier.

Thank you for your co-operation.
