How are my tiles delivered?


Samples are well packed and sent by couriers for fast delivery to your home or office.


Orders as placed are often heavy and quantity required means that they are bulky. We pack orders on pallets. Strap and wrap to ensure safe delivery to you. Our transport company often has a truck with a tail lift and will deliver the pallet of tiles to road side or curb-side. Drivers are not able to unpack and move boxes into your home etc.

It is your responsibility to unpack and load the tiles into a safe location for installation or storage.
