Delivery & collections

Overview

The delivery options available will depend on your location and the weight of the equipment you are ordering.

The majority of our environmental equipment can be shipped on a next-working day delivery to most UK mainland postcodes. There are some exceptions to this, such as equipment which requires hazardous goods shipping.

The delivery options available will be made clear when you book your rental. If you’d like to discuss your options with a member of our team please call + 44 (0) 1462 679 020 or email london@ashtead-technology.com.

Our preferred courier partner for standard deliveries is DPD. Timed delivery services are available, as standard all equipment is shipped for a pre-12 delivery. For international shipments we use Pentagon Freight.  

Clients are welcome to collect their orders from our warehouse in Sandy, Bedfordshire. Alternatively, you can use your own courier.

Please note equipment goes on hire the day it is delivered to you.

Once you are finished with the equipment, you can either return the equipment to us or use our collection service. If you return the equipment yourself, it is off-hired the day we receive it. If you use our collection service, it is off-hired the day the equipment is successfully collected from your location.

To book a collection, you must call or email us before 11:30am on the day collection is required. Collections cannot be pre-booked.

  • Product(s) to be returned
