Courier Services & International Shipping
Trade Shop Direct employs the services of DPD and Tuffnell’s for the carriage of your products. Tuffnell’s for the large ‘bulky’ items to business addresses and, DPD for the ‘smaller’ parcel sizes as they have a fleet of delivery vans as well as lorries. Both Companies are contracted and committed to ensure you and/or your Company, receive the products you require at the time you require them, in first class condition. Trade Shop Direct is dedicated to communicating any exceptions (should they occur) in deliveries, to you immediately, with; a planned alternative action, delivering the best possible service in this circumstance also.
Offshore Islands & Highlands:
Additional payment is required for Offshore Islands & Highland areas in the United Kingdom for courier services, as these areas are charged at a premium price by our carriers. Our website should calculate these additional charges, but; if it doesn’t for whatever reason (new post code) we will contact you to ask you to pay the difference in what has been charged and what should have been charged.
We will honor agreed dispatch dates from Trade Shop Direct, however; we cannot guarantee ‘standard’ delivery times other than, before 5.30 pm unfortunately, as the two companies we employ are out of our operational control. Dates and Times can only be guaranteed ‘by the carrier’ when you have paid the premium fee for a timed delivery, before 9am, before 10.30am, before noon and so on.
