Delivery (distance selling via GardenSite only) we aim to deliver most, smaller items within 5 working days. This will normally be by Royal Mail. If we anticipate a delay of more than 14 days we will contact you to see whether you are prepared to wait.  Barbecues are held in stock at the distributors who arrange delivery on our behalf. The normal delivery time for these is approximately 3-7 working days. Wooden garden sheds are made especially for you. As such delivery times are dependant upon the manufacturers workload. However 2-3 weeks is the norm. Metal sheds, plastic sheds and greenhouses are again delivered direct to you from the supplier or importers. Normal delivery is approximately 2-3 weeks but please allow 28 days. However this can be up to 10 weeks in the case of some bespoke Elite greenhouses. If lead-time is critical to you then please contact us prior to placing your order. This is for guidance only and is subject to change without notice or recompense. We cannot under any circumstances accept responsibility for delay in installation or any costs incurred by you due to delayed delivery as this is outside of our control. Dependant upon the nature of the item delivery may be to kerbside only. This is at the drivers / manufacturers discretion.

Next Working Day Delivery
Orders placed on Friday will be delivered on the next working day which is Monday. We cannot accept liability for items not delivered by our couriers on time and would recommend that you do not engage contractors etc until you are in physical possession of the goods.

Delivery (instore only) When your order your goods we will, where ever possible give you an indication of the day of your delivery and whether it will be a.m. or p.m. This is for guidance only and is subject to change without notice or recompense. Goods are normally kerbside delivery only. We will only enter or drive on to your property, at the discretion of our driver and with your permission. Our liability is only extended to that which it has to be in law. 

Your right to cancel If you order over the phone or online you have the legal right to cancel your order within seven working days of receipt of the goods (with the exception of Flowers and Made to Order items). Where goods are delivered to a third party (e.g. as a gift) you will only be able to exercise this right if you are able to return to us the goods you ordered.

Missing items / damaged parts In the event of missing or damaged parts then we will endeavour to rectify the problem as soon as possible but in some circumstances we may not be able to do so straight away as parts may have to be sent from outside of the UK or manufactured for you. We cannot under any circumstances accept responsibility for delay in installation or any costs incurred by you due to faulty or missing parts as this is outside of our control. However we will do our utmost to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Note: Greenhouse glass will be securely crated for delivery OUTSIDE of the UK, or overseas, but we cannot be held responsible or liable for any damage or breakage to glass in transit OUTSIDE of the UK, or overseas.

Recycling electrical and electronic products On 1 July 2007, new government regulations called the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations came into force to encourage people to arrange collection or recycling of old electrical products, rather than throwing them away. The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Recycling reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill. Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled. The simplest way to recycle is to take recyclable goods to your local councils domestic waste recycling centre; details can be found for local councils on http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/index.htm.

We also offer a free in store take back service so you are able to take any products we sell to any of our stores. It doesn't matter if you didn't purchase the equipment from us - we'll still take it back. All electrical products purchased via distance selling from one of our websites can also be taken back to one of our stores for recycling, or alternatively we can offer a collection service for a charge of £20.00. This covers the cost of administration and transport.

Hall's World of Christmas

General Synopsis:

Halls World of Christmas is banner under which we are going to unite our drive for increased local footfall at our garden centres, with particular initial emphasis on our New Oscott, Sutton Coldfield garden centre. We will target December, but will start on the last full weekend in November. The rapid increase in online sales has enabled Hall's Garden Supplies to buy more and varied product at better rates. We now have the opportunity to showcase this to our local customers through the timely addition of The Garden Room (formerly The Place 2B).

Risk Assesments:

An overall policy for risk assement was discussed at our meeting on 07.10.2011. This was attended by all partners plus senior management totalling 8 people. It is our intention to create a better shopping environment for our local customers and a better work space for all at Hall's Garden Supplies. By increasing the amount of under cover space we hope to achieve this but realise the increased risks that it will also bring. Illumination, steps, tripping hazards, heating, parking and information are all areas we discussed in detail. Other risks were also highlighted. This area will be re-visited and Carl Ferris will be called in to do make specific risk assesments closer to the opening time.
