APC operate a doorstep delivery service and will drop the goods with you at the entrance of your dwelling.
For bulk orders, or large items we send goods out on a pallet through the TPN network. This is a kerbside delivery service which means the driver is obliged to offload your order from the vehicle to the roadside the boarders your premises. This service does not include set up, assembly, or removal of packaging. For this reason it is advised for these deliveries you organise help being available to move items into your premises.

UK MAINLAND DEFINITION
UK mainland is a area pre-determined by our couriers that covers the central land mass of the UK. This sadly excludes any islands, Northern Ireland, and less densely populated areas of Scotland including the postcodes that start with HS, IV, KW, PA, PH, AB and DD. These areas are defined by each courier depending on their depot location and capabilities. Non UK mainland post codes incur extra delivery costs and may take longer in transit to reach you. Because the UK mainland zones are out of our control we are always to happy to ‘shop around’ to find the most cost effective shipping method/ courier to suit your address and order.
For orders £1000+ that would justify a pallet delivery service we can arrange this for you. Please contact us with your order requirements along with your delivery address and we can pull together a shipping quotation for you
For other orders that would be dispatched in standard parcels, our designated courier currently does not offer international shipping options. We can however help facilitate if you would like to arrange your own courier or we can send to a freight forwarder for you.
