Most people in the construction industry, or keen home DIY-ers will have a local timber supplier who they visit directly for orders. This can involve taking time out of your day to visit their warehouse if you are not lucky enough to live close by. You may also find that if they don’t have the timber you want in stock, the lead times on ordering this can be lengthy– the industry average is 3-4 weeks which can seriously hold up a project if time is of the essence.
Online timber companies are taking a stand against these lengthy lead times and bringing the traditional timber industry into the 21st century, by supplying timber online via their website.
Timbersource are one such company, offering next (working) day delivery to any part of the UK, available to order from their website. This is easy to do and helps you to avoid lengthy lead times whilst getting exactly what you need to keep your project going.
Timbersource offer delivery by lorry, with a special vehicle curtain-sided for kiln dried timber, or vans for smaller, more urgent orders. Drivers are more than drivers – with plenty of timber experience, they’re able to help handle theorder properly and answer any questions.
You can also choose a specific day for your order to be delivered if you’d like to get things arranged to fit a precise schedule. If you’d rather pick your timber up from the Timbersource warehouse, you can take advantage of their Click & Collect same working day service.
And if speed isn’t such an issue, just opt for standard delivery. Timbersource still beats most competitors by dispatching orders within 5-7 working days, although it may take a little longer for green or freshly sawn timber. If your order is over £300 and you’re within a 70-mile radius, you’ll find that standard delivery is absolutely free.
