Why Do We Charge Extra for Full Pipe Lengths Over 3m to Residential/Home Delivery Addresses?

Long rigid plastic pipe lengths are not straightforward to deliver. They require an extra long wheel base van for sizes over 1m, or in the case of 5m and 6m lengths, a 7.5 tonne truck at the very least, otherwise they will not fit. There are only two national carriers that will take such lengths and both of these charge a heavy surcharge for residential/home addresses as their operations are based on business to business deliveries.

We now sell our grey PVC pipe sizes in 1m lengths so that customers can still purchase the pipes at the cheaper carriage costs.

How Can I Avoid the Extra Delivery Charge?

If you need a longer length of pipe run than 1m, then it is often possible/cheaper to order an extra plain socket to join two shorter lengths together, than pay the additional carriage.
