How long will delivery take?
Our standard delivery takes between 2 and up to 5 working days (Monday – Friday). However, this can be extended during busy periods to up to 10 working days. We do our best to email and text your delivery updates so you are kept aware.
While we can estimate on time of order when your delivery date will be, we cannot guarantee a named delivery date; 95% of the orders are delivered 48 Hours from the dispatch day.
Can I have a Weekend Delivery, Timed Delivery, AM Delivery, VAN Delivery?
Yes, we have additional options for you but you will need to call us to add these to your order.
The following options can be selected and are charged at haulier's rates:
Timed Delivery: Set a Delivery Window between 10:00 and 16:00 and the delivery will arrive 30 minutes before or 30 minutes after the set time
AM Delivery: Set your delivery to arrive between 09:00 am and 12:00

Special Note on 7.5T Delivery Vehicles
Current nationwide delivery restriction on Tail-Lifts over 750kg means that customers requiring a 7.5T must either have a forklift to unload or purchase a smaller 750kg pallet that can allow Tail-Lifts. Please note if you require a 7.5T Vehicle with a Tail-Lift and do not mention this, you will be charged for the splitting of the pallet and re-delivery costs (if applicable) before the delivery goes ahead.
Most UK mainland postcodes are free of charge however we do have some exceptions. These are automatically applied when you enter your shipping address. You will be able to view your total delivered price before you proceed to payment.
Other areas such as the Channel Islands or Northern Ireland might require a separate quotation.
To have accurate delivery costs and times please contact us.
Missed Deliveries or Delivery Re-Routes
If you cannot be contacted on the delivery date, and we are not able to find a secure and dry place to leave your pallet then this will be considered an unsuccessful attempt and a missed delivery and re-delivery cost will occur at haulier's rates.
Please also double-check your delivery address and phone number is correct. If the pallet has been sent to the wrong depot an additional re-route cost will occur at haulier's rates.
We really don't like when this happens so please keep your mobile phone, landline & email open.
Wrong Delivery Details
It is the customer’s responsibility to enter correct delivery details. Once the order has been placed, customers will have to notify us in writing with changes to the address before the order is dispatched remembering this will occur at 9:30 AM on the next day. Additional fees may apply if the customer gives a late notice.
What happens after I place my order?
We put your order together in our warehouse on a pallet, shrink-wrapped to protect it from the elements and to ensure safe delivery. Once wrapped we arrange for our pallet delivery network to collect your order from us – your order will be taken back to their national hub and forwarded on to the nearest local partner who will deliver to your home.
How will my order be delivered?
Under normal circumstances your order will be delivered on a vehicle with a tail-lift – the driver will unload your order with a pallet pump truck and place it where you request where possible.
Deliveries are contracted to be at the kerbside only. We try our best in every case to get as close as possible but please be aware that delivery onto the property is at the discretion of the driver on the day of the delivery.
Please note that pallet delivery is not the same as parcel delivery, see the video below which provides useful information about delivery rules which ensure the safety of drivers and your goods.
Deliveries can only be completed on flat surfaces. The pallets cannot be delivered/collected on non-solid surfaces (e.g. gravel or grass). In case of any doubt please contact us before placing the order to avoid a missed delivery or check the video at the bottom of this page for better information on the delivery process.
Deliveries of full pallets (above 750 Kg) are made on 18T trucks or above.
We can request the use of smaller trucks (12T or 15T) but smaller truck sizes are dependent on availability and cannot be guaranteed.
If a 7.5T van is required a light pallet (below 750 Kg) must be purchased.
Please note, if the delivery cannot be completed due to customer's fault a partial refund will be provided minus our costs incurred in delivering and returning the order to our warehouse.
If a redelivery and/or splitting of the pallets is required a charge will be applied at haulier's rates.
If the vehicle runs late, Pure Biofuel Ltd. cannot be held liable for any charges incurred for wasted labour, equipment hire, inspections, or other on-site costs due to late or non-arrival of vehicles.
Is a signature required – do I need to be there for delivery?
The signature is not a requirement and the goods can be left without you being present if specifically requested, however, we do strongly suggest being present at the moment of delivery in order to inspect the pallet.
If you decide not to be present please add to your delivery notes that you are happy for your order to be left without a signature or person present, however, our delivery partner nor ourselves could be liable should anything happen to your order after delivery.
What if I don’t live in a UK Mainland postcode?
