Orders received on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays and Orders received after 2pm on weekdays, will be processed the next working day. We do not normally deliver on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays. Whilst we agree to use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that Delivery is made around the Delivery time advertised, you will acknowledge that actual Delivery is often via third party carriers and can therefore be beyond our control.

When the delivery arrives
Delivery will be deemed complete once the product has arrived at the specified delivery address and a signature taken from the recipient. Customers must ensure that the delivery driver has sufficient help to offload the goods safely to prevent damage. Trimetals Ltd will not accept any responsibility where the customer instructs Trimetals to leave goods at a delivery address without a signature. Products will be deemed the customers responsibility once received and a signature obtained or where Trimetals conform to the customers delivery instructions. Thereafter any loss or damage to the products shall then be at the customers own risk. It is the recipients responsibility to sign for the correct number of packages as shown on the carriers delivery consignment note. If the goods are damaged the customer must sign the consignment note as “damaged” or alternatively refuse the delivery in total. If the product it not damaged and the delivery is refused or the customer is not present at the specified delivery address and date then Trimetals may charge for a second delivery since we have met our delivery obligations with the initial delivery.
