We aim to dispatch all orders received before 2pm the same working day.
The order may also be delivered to your place of work or left in a safe place at the chosen delivery address (safe place does not require a signature but is left at the customers own risk). Please be aware all orders require a signature upon delivery, unless requested otherwise. If there is no one in to sign for the delivery and a safe place has not been selected a card will be left and an automatic re-delivery will be attempted the next working day. If for a second time the delivery has not been signed for a second card will be left detailing how to re-arrange delivery. If no attempt is made to re-arrange delivery, the order will returned to us. If the order is returned to us after the second card attempt we will incur a charge which may be passed on to the customer

Max weight 2Kg. Size restrictions and some Royal Mail "prohibited item" restrictions also also apply.
Standard Parcels - UK Mainland (excluding areas of low parcel volumes*)
To bring you the best value, the delivery price per parcel is based on the value of the goods ordered. The higher the spend per parcel, the more we can subsidise the cost of delivery.
*Although most parcels are delivered the next working day after dispatch, please allow up to two working days.
The spend per parcel is the total order value (excluding delivery) divided by the number of parcels required.

For courier delivery, large items which exceed the standard parcel size carry an increased delivery charge of £10 per parcel. The standard delivery rate will be calculated then the £10 surcharge will be applied on top. For example large products which would otherwise cost £4.95 to deliver will cost £14.95 (£4.95 +£10) to deliver due to the large item surcharge. Large products which would otherwise qualify for free delivery will cost £10.00 (£0 +£10) to deliver due to the large item surcharge.
This surcharge is levied by our couriers. It does not apply to other delivery methods, e.g. Pallet Delivery, Burnhills Own Van Delivery & In-Store collection.
Pallet Delivery Rates (Aprox 3 Working Days)
All Pallet orders require a signature on delivery so you must ensure that someone is available to take delivery. Please be sure to provide a telephone number. The haulier will call you to arrange a delivery day with you with you. If they cannot get hold of you, your delivery will not take place.
Please be aware if you have no means of off loading the pallet/s (e.g. a forklift truck) the driver is only permitted to off load the whole pallet/s using a pump truck and tail lift to the threshold of the delivery address.
If you are purchasing bags of feed, rather than bales of bedding or chops, we may be able to fit more onto a pallet than the website will allow. If you wish to order more than 20 bags, please call us to place the order. If you order online and are charged for more pallets than are required, we will refund you any overpaid delivery charge.
