Answers

1. Do you supply to the public?

As a rule no; we are mainly a bulk importer and wholesale operation supplying larger volumes to merchants and manufacturers. We would be happy to direct you to someone who can supply smaller quantities if that would help though.

2. How far do you deliver?

To some extent that depends on what you need!
Smaller quantities (less than 12t) are delivered mainly on our own vehicles on multi-drop runs. As these vehicles are based at our main stock depots in Newport and Birmingham, the only restrictions are how far the driver can get before he has to return!

As a guide, we regularly deliver to the following regions on our fleet:

London and the South East,
Central South,
South West,
All of Wales,
All of the Midlands
Home Counties,
North West,
Some parts of the North East.

Deliveries to areas outside of these are also fairly regular, but as they rely on outside hauliers, each delivery is arranged and costed individually. Full loads (24-28t) can be arranged for delivery anywhere in the UK. We can even deliver to other countries if you want!

3. Is there a minimum order quantity?

Not as such but we do have to make sure the order and delivery are financially viable. There's also the practical considerations; some products would be very easily damaged in loading and transit if they were sent individually or in small quantities.

Call us and we'll be happy to look at your enquiries.

8. What do these BS-EN numbers mean on this specification?

Many specification sheets may ask for something along the lines of “18mm Plywood to BS-EN636-1” for example. BS-EN numbers govern manufacturing and product performance standards across thousands of products, timber products included.

For more information on the most common BS-EN numbers relating to sheet materials, and what characteristics they refer to,
please refer to the trada website

10. Can you deliver direct to site?

It is a service we offer, yes, but it will depend on site restrictions. Things to bear in mind are: Our fleet is geared to delivering bulk, therefore the vehicles are a mix of large rigid and articulated curtain-side vehicles.

They are not suitable for off-load by overhead crane, no do they carry any means of offloading themselves, so the site will have to have suitable offloading facilities/arrangements.

Narrow or restricted access (or low bridges/cables) may also prohibit the vehicles being able to easily access the site. Weight restrictions may also apply. As long as these considerations are met, we would be happy to deliver to site.

11. What's your environmental policy?

As a responsible timber importer, we have a strict environmental policy and are constantly seeking ways to reduce the impact both our company and our trade has upon the environment.

12. Do you offer cutting/processing services?

Through a network of professional and reliable subcontractors with whom we have built long-standing partnerships, we can offer a multitude of processing services which can be performed on our products.

These include cutting, profiling, milling, veneering, laminating, foiling, painting & lacquering, drilling, CNC routering, edging etc. Premier have always had a name in the trade for finding solutions to bespoke specifications and we are hugely experienced in this field.

13. Do you do a brochure/price list?

No. At our level of the industry, prices fluctuate enormously due to international market conditions and exchange rates. We feel that they only way to be able to go to print with prices would be to inflate them sufficiently to cover for these fluctuations, and we do not believe that this would be to your best interest.

We would rather keep our prices far more competitive and encourage you to call us so we can give you the best possible deal.

14. Do you run Hiab vehicles?

No; Hiab vehicles would seriously curtail the amount of payload that we could get on our lorries, and that would reflect heavily in the price of our goods if we sought to recover the higher haulage costs.

This doesn't restrict us from site deliveries though.

15. Do you split packs?

Yes! Whilst it's nice to deliver in packs and we would encourage you to buy in packs if you can (it will be cheaper for you!) we understand that it's not always possible or desirable, so we are happy to offer split packs/loose sheets too.

How far do you deliver?
