Panel Warehouse Delivery Guide

Production Timescales

Panel Warehouse products are manufactured to order within the advertised lead-time.  This lead time is detailed above the add to basket box on the product page.

Next Working Day products - for urgent requirements we have a selection of products available for same day despatch. These do still need to be made therefore we ask that all orders should be placed and paid for before 12 noon Mon- Fri. Unless otherwise requested, any orders placed on a Friday will be delivered the following working day.

A £35 + VAT standard delivery charge applies to the Next Working Day range, goods are delivered between 8.30am and 5.30pm. 
A Next Working Day AM delivery is also available at a cost of £45 + VAT - goods are delivered between 7am and 12noon. All delivery options are clearly marked at checkout.

On the rare occasion that we are unable to meet the advertised delivery schedule you will be contacted at point of order by our Customer Service Team who will confirm your delivery date.

Once the goods have been manufactured all deliveries leaving our production unit in Manchester are despatched via Tuffnells on a standard next working day delivery service. (Deliveries to Non Mainland destinations and certain areas in Scotland can take between 3-5 working days and can be subject to weather conditions).

Tuffnells deliver large and sometimes bulky items often in multiples on our behalf. Individual deliveries can sometimes take longer and vary from client to client therefore they are unable to offer timed delivery slots or text notifications prior to delivery.  However, for your convenience we do offer the option for you to upgrade your delivery to an AM or Saturday delivery for a small additional charge.
