Alternatively, you can call our despatch department on 01428 682929 ext. 202.

 

Tooling Delivery

Small tooling orders are packed and despatched within 1-2 working days, and will usually arrive within within 2-5 working days for UK mainland customers from receipt of payment, subject to stock.

Couriers used for UK deliveries:

  • DPD (for most tooling courier deliveries)
  • UK Mail (for other tooling courier deliveries including all orders with liquids eg Neatcut)
  • Royal Mail (for small parcels)

Delivery times might vary if it's a public holiday or if we are either attending or hosting an exhibition - in the busy period of the week before or after an event, there might be a delay in our usual despatch schedule.

 

Machinery Delivery by Carrier

For small to medium sized machines, the standard delivery price included is for delivery by carrier.

We aim to deliver machines sent by carrier within 5-10 working days of receiving payment for UK mainland customers, subject to stock. (Delivery time might vary if it's a public holiday or if we are attending / hosting an exhibition.)

Next day services are available whatever the size of your order - feel free to contact us for prices and availability.

Carrier delivery is by appointment. After we process and despatch your order, the carrier will get in touch before delivery to arrange a suitable date and time with you, so you will have plenty of notice and a choice of delivery day.

Installation of optional equipment such as DRO or power feeds will require additional workshop time, which will lengthen the delivery time depending on our engineers' current schedule.

Carrier delivery process

  • Heavier items of equipment delivered by carrier will arrive on a pallet.
  • A tail lift vehicle is used for off loading.
  • The delivery vehicle is usually a 7.5 ton truck. (For reference, this roughly the same size a bin lorry.)
  • A pallet truck is used to move the machine from the off loading point to as close as possible to the final location.
  • A flat, smooth surface is essential for the pallet truck to traverse safely.
  • Machines ordered with a stand are not mounted to the stand for delivery to ensure safe transit. This is due to the top heavy nature of the equipment.
  • For carrier deliveries, please note that the driver does not use lifting equipment or undertake installation. For these deliveries, where it applies, lifting the machine onto a stand or bench is the customer's responsibility. 
  • We recommend using an engine hoist for lifting a machine. These can be hired locally for a low cost.
  • If you need lifting guidance, you can find a summary of how to lift a lathe or milling machine on the FAQ page.

 

Machinery Delivery by Warco Specialist Transport

Warco specialist transport is available for delivery and placing equipment into the workshop.

For larger machines (such as the WM20 mill or GH1322 lathe) we would usually use our own transport.

We're always happy to quote for delivery using our own transport if required. We would ask for a site questionnaire to be completed, and then be pleased to submit a quotation.

Delivery times for these orders will vary according to our current schedules - please contact us for more details.

 

Worldwide Delivery

We can ship our products anywhere in the world. If you're located outside of mainland UK, you can contact us and we'll be happy to give you a delivery price to your location for the items you would like to buy.

We export large items such as lathes or mills worldwide by sea or air freight. Quotations are available based on FOB or C & F. EU deliveries are made by road transport.

UK VAT applies to EU customers unless you are VAT registered. All other destinations are free of UK VAT.
