Topping up existing play areas:

Although it is very common place to consider topping up a play area with new ‘play bark’ we strongly advise due consideration is given to the condition of the existing material which has inevitably decomposed.

Quite often this decomposed material has become extremely compressed and firm, especially in dry conditions and if new play bark is laid on top, especially at minimal depth, the new material will wear extremely quickly simply due to abrasion!

This situation applies more so with the chunkier types of material where it requires greater depth to knit together to provide settlement and therefore to provide a safe surface. The application of new play bark always has to have a credible depth to be functional and to perform correctly.

If the older material has become very hard and compact, consider removing it and replacing with new, this way it will remove the issues as mentioned above and will also prevent the new play bark spilling out of the play area due to the surfacing being too high.

Please Note:

In line with Customer Service and as a courtesy to all our Customer we do offer a facility whereby Customers can choose a preferred delivery day.
 
We endeavour to adhere to this specified day to the best of our ability, but as you will appreciate the National Carriers we contract with do have a mammoth task tackling road works, congestion and tachograph regulations.
 
With this in mind, please be aware sometimes they are delayed and as a result cannot deliver on the specified day. This doesn’t happen very often but we politely make it known to Customers we can’t pay compensation, wages, time or any other consequential loss a result of this delay.
 
However if a Customer has specified the ‘Next Day’ option and the delivery wasn’t performed on that basis, we will gladly refund the £20 Next Day charge.

How we Deliver

If the vehicle shown below may be too large to delivery to your property, please contact our sales office before ordering to discuss further delivery options on 01538 751514 or email info@playbark.com.

This page sets out how we deliver products to you. Please take the time to check that your delivery address can accommodate the requirements below. If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Delivery vehicle arriving

The delivery vehicle arrives. This is a typical vehicle that delivers our goods. It measures approximately 28ft in length and is approximately 8'6" wide. If required we can deliver on a 7.5 tonne truck which is slightly smaller, however this is by prior arrangement and the delivery date will have to be mutually agreed between the Customer, Playbark.com and the haulage contractor.

Please note that the goods are unloaded from the rear of the vehicle. 

Please note that goods are not delivered with a crane facility and can therefore not be lowered over a fence or similar. We can also not deliver to the rear of properties due to access restrictions.

Driver and pallet truck

The driver positions the pallet truck. The driver uses a 'pump' pallet truck to lift the pallet so that he can wheel the pallet onto the tail lift.

Lowering on the tail lift

The pallet load is lowered to the ground. The tail lift is lowered electrictronically by the driver. He carefully lowers the load to the ground so that it can be wheeled across the pavement.

Please note:
 
The driver only has a legal obligation to offload the goods onto the roadside and in turn the liability and responsibility of the goods then passes to the customer.

We do NOT offer a Hiab facility. Deliveries will only take place on the vehicle as pictured.
 
However, at playbark.com we contract with reputable and obliging transport Companies whoose drivers will endeavour to place the pallet into your driveway as long as the surface is of sound makeup such as concrete, paving or tarmac.
 
Please be aware that the pallet truck cannot pass over gravel or any type of rough terrain and similarly the driver cannot be expected to pull the goods up or down a sloping driveway or over curbs.
 
Failure to accept this responsibility will result in the goods being returned to the transport depot and a delivery charge will apply The safe passage of the Carrier's delivery vehicle is the ultimate responsibility of the delivery driver. With this in mind if the driver assesses any delivery point road or carriageway and concludes it is unsafe or unviable to access the delivery property in question, this decision of the driver is final. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the Customer and any potential purchaser to notify ourselves of any potential situation which may lead to the delivery being undelivered. Examples may include (but not exhaustive) cars parked preventing vehicle access, low growing tree branches, telephone/ electricity cables etc. Failure to accept this responsibility will result in the goods being returned to the transport depot and a delivery charge will apply.
