Question 3 - How will my order be delivered?


Most of our orders are delivered by specialist fragile goods courier Fragilistics.

Important Information for FRAGILISTICS deliveries

You will receive an estimated delivery window by email when your order is placed into production. This will be confirmed when we dispatch the order. When the order arrives at the courier’s depot it will be checked and your order is allocated for delivery with Fragilistics.

Fragilistics will confirm final delivery date and time slot the day prior to the delivery window directly via an automated SMS text alert and email to the mobile number and email address provided. We cannot guarantee delivery dates and times however the text and email will also contain a link to allow you to track the progress of the driver and he will also call the mobile number provided when he is on his way

Should you need to rearrange delivery please email Fragilistics direct or call them on 0844 846 8544.

Please be advised we cannot guarantee delivery dates and times. The time slots are indicative only - (FRAGILISTICS deliver nationwide from one depot to reduce risk of damages in transit and hence traffic/accidents on long delivery runs can affect the slots you are given and we hope you can understand that these are outside our control).

Please note all our deliveries are one person deliveries and there must be someone available to help offload and check the orders.

For safety when handling and to allow you the opportunity to check for damages at time of delivery our orders are NOT packaged. They are transported using specially equipped vans and together with Fragilistics we have a very high success rate for delivering fragile goods without breakage. Our toughened glass panels are wrapped in a thin protective film. There is no cardboard packaging at all.

Important information for PALLETWAYS or TUFFNELLS deliveries

The delivery will be next working day as indicated. All PALLETWAYS deliveries will have the option of a tail lift delivery and are delivered on specially designed disposable wooden A frames. We do not collect them. To change the delivery date please email damon@concordeglass.com

Question 4 - What are the couriers responsible for?


All Fragilistics deliveries are one man deliveries.

IF YOUR ORDER CONTANS LARGE OR HEAVY ITEMS YOU MUST BE AVAILABLE TO HELP THE FRAGILISTICS DRIVER UNLOAD. YOU MUST BE PHYSICALLY FIT ENOUGH TO HANDLE THE MIRRORS OR GLASS SAFELY. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ASSIST YOU MUST ARRANGE FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO BE THERE WHO CAN.

FRAGILISTICS will only take the mirrors or glass to the nearest GROUND FLOOR safe storage point at the entrance point. If they choose to help you and take the mirrors further they will do so at their discretion considering access, difficulty and distance. Please understand that if they decide to go the extra mile and help you they doing so as a goodwill gesture. In the event you damage to the item(s) during this extra work the driver is not liable.

Palletways will only tail lift the delivery onto the floor and at this point you are responsible for stripping and moving the goods and must consider this.

TUFFNELS is a standard courier service.

Question 5 - How is my order packaged?


Our orders are not packaged to allow you the opportunity to check for blemishes and marks at point of receiving them. All our toughened glass panels are wrapped in a thin protective film.

For PALLETWAYS deliveries the goods are packaged onto a specially designed wooden A frame which you will be responsible for disposing of.

Question 6 - What happens in the event of a failed delivery or a damaged delivery?


DO NOT ACCEPT OR SIGN FOR ANY DAMAGED GOODS WITHOUT DOCUMENTING THE DAMAGE. GOODS MUST BE CHECKED AS ONCE SIGNED FOR ANY MARKS/ DAMAGES WILL BECOME THE CUSTOMERS RESPONSIBILITY.

IN THE EVENT OF A DELIVERY ARRIVING DAMAGED PLEASE CALL 01507 472600 OPTION 4 IMMEDIATELY.

IN THE EVENT OF A FAILED DELIVERY PLEASE CONTACT THE COURIER TO REARRANGE ANOTHER DELIVERY IF REQUIRED.

Question 7 - How do I receive and store my goods?


Please consider how and where you intend to store the products prior to installation. The goods are fragile and glass and mirror is safest stored on its edge leant against a wall. We recommend placing some card between the item(s) and the wall to prevent marks and protecting the floor and the edges of the mirror glass by using some carpet or thick cardboard. The courier will be instructed by you where to place the mirrors or glass.

Question 8 - What if I am not in?


If the product is small enough for one man to take off we are prepared to leave in a safe area at your prior instruction. However we cannot accept any liability for damages. None of our products are packaged and as we strongly advise someone is there to check the condition of the goods. If the mirrors or glass are oversize then the delivery will be have to be rearranged.

Drivers are instructed if the location to leave the products is deemed unsafe they are not to leave the items. In such instances you may be liable for failed delivery charges. The floor must not be hard and the wall must be safe to lean against.

Question 9 - How do I install my products?


Please see our various guides for installation advice.

Question 10 - When should I book my builders/ installers?


DO NOT BOOK ANY BUILDERS / INSTALLERS UNTIL YOU HAVE RECEVED AND CHECKED YOUR ORDER – BREAKAGES/ DAMAGES CAN SOMETIMES OCCUR AND WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CHARGES CAUSED BY A DELIVERY DELAY OR BREAKAGE AND REPLACEMENT ORDER.

Testimonials
  •  Hello I recently bought 2 mirrors off of yourself, I'm really pleased with both the price and product, you were by far the cheapest quote from many other glass companies and the delivery was brilliant, the mirrors were used on a bespoke wardrobe install I have just completed for a client of mine, here's a couple of pictures of the finished product..
  • I would like to say that the whole experience in buying from you guys was easy, uncomplicated and very fast. The Gym mirrors are great and very easy to install, delivery driver was very good, obviously knew how to handle the glass carefully and was very helpful, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending yourselves to others.
  • I bought two pieces of glass as shelf tops. They were 'low ion' glass which is crystal clear. They were both cut extremely well and fitted perfectly. The communications with the vendor were fantastic - very very helpful. The delivery cost was a little pricey for small items, although glass clearly needs to be sent safely. Despite that, I would definitely use again.
