Christchurch Garden Machinery Delivery Info
We offer free delivery (normally next day) on orders above £50 to UK Mainland addresses. Orders below £50 will incur a delivery charge that is calculated by the size and weight of your parcel but in most cases will be £7.99 inc Vat, or £4.99 if you live in a local BH post code area. Unfortunately we have to charge a surcharge for the Scotland, Northern Ireland and UK Islands. Some larger items can only be delivered by our own transport and therefor are restricted to BH, SO and some SP post codes. The option to collect in store will be provided if you live outside of this area.
Christchurch Garden Machinery ship to the UK and Ireland but due to increases in card fraud, delivery charges and other related issues we don’t ship to any other international destinations. If you require international shipping then please contact us for a quote. We may be able to arrange a direct bank transfer for your order.
Due to Christchurch Garden Machinery’ Dealer Commitment we do our best to delivery all machinery using our own drivers and delivery vehicles. This means that we can only practically service customers approximately 50 miles or a couple of hours away from our showroom. So if you are within a reasonable distance of our showroom in the BH23 postcode and would like to see the benefits of dealing with your local dealer, then please call us on 01202 473355.
All petrol machines will be assembled, run up & tested. Please ensure wherever possible that the main operator is present at the time of delivery, as instruction in the safe and best use will be given. If a courier is used then all liquids (Fuel and Oil) will be drained from the machines before shipping, a bottle of 4-Stroke oil will be included to re-fill the machine upon delivery where applicable.
Stihl & Viking
More specifically, Stihl ask all of their UK dealers to make sure that the correct hand over proceedure is followed with most of their machinery. Stihl care about their customers and feel it’s important you’re given proper instruction on how to use the machine safely but more importantly to make sure that you can use the tool with confidence and enjoy the experience you have just invested in.
For this reason we are asked not to ship Stihl products via a 3rd party courier and therefore will normally carry out delivery on our own vehicle with a fully trained member of staff. Machines that fall into this category are clearly marked with the image shown to the right. When you purchase one of these machines we will contact you shortly after to discuss the available delivery/collection options.
