- When placing an order, the customer has agreed that access can be made with a heavy goods vehicle. Delivery will be made on heavy good vehicles between 7 and 15-tonne capability (similar to a bin lorry) so it is the customers responsibility to request a suitably sized vehicle if there are access issues. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that there is sufficient access to the property and free from obstacles, overhanging branches and is a solid surface road for the lorry to drive on.
- Where the delivery location is unsuitable for delivery (as deemed by our courier’s driver), and the customer is unable to provide an alternate delivery location that is suitable, or otherwise unable to come to an amicable resolution of the delivery with MBE, the customer will be liable for the costs associated with returning the pallet which is £47 plus VAT.
- It will be the customers responsibility to ensure that the goods be moved to a safe and suitable store once the delivery has been made.
- MBE does not accept responsibility for damage to the goods or injury while moving the goods.
- If every reasonable attempt has been made to deliver your goods and it has not been possible, then an additional charge of £55 + VAT may be made for re-delivery.
- Deliveries are made via a third-party courier. Any liability arising from the delivery process lies strictly with the courier.

Orders may be cancelled and full refund given provided that we have received notice of the cancellation prior to despatch of the goods.
