Delivery service

Palmstead Nurseries offers an efficient delivery service predominantly made using our own fleet of vehicles. By minimizing the use of contract hauliers we are able to deliver your orders when and where you need them. Our lorries have both curtain sides and tail-lifts to facilitate ease of unloading. By utilizing a number of different methods of packaging we ensure that our plants reach their destination in first class condition. Plants will generally be packed on Danish trolley's, cardboard pallet boxes or pallets for shipping.

Though logistical costs have risen year on year, we have endeavoured to keep our delivery charges at a consistent rate, and one which represents only a contribution towards the true cost of deliveries. As a result of the changing financial climate we undertook a full review of our operations and logistics back in February this year, and in March increased our delivery charges and amended our delivery zones to reflect the situation.

As we head into the final part of 2021 we unfortunately need to look once again at our delivery charges, specifically for the zones in and around London and beyond. The main reasons for this review are: -

  • The expansion of the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) to the north and south circular roads
  • The expansion of the Low Emission Zone (LEZ) out to the M25
  • Fuel prices rising at an alarming rate
  • London boroughs all increasing the number of roads with 7.5 tonne lorry weight limits, increasing risks of penalty charges
  • Traffic congestion at an all-time high, reducing our average number of deliveries into London in one day from five to four and increasing fuel consumption

Therefore reluctantly we will be increasing our delivery charges into the City and Zones 3 and 4 of our delivery zones from Sunday 14 November 2021.  Please see below for our new delivery charges and revised postcode zones. If you would like to download a copy of this map, please click here.
