Meadowmat deliveries: vehicles and access
Can Meadowmat's delivery vehicles access your site?
Meadowmat's delivery terms and conditions state that it is your responsibility to let Meadowmat know if there are likely to be any problems with access at your site. But how will you know?
What size are Meadowmat's delivery lorries?
The majority of our fleet are articulated lorries. These are the largest vehicles we use. They're 16.5 metres (54 feet) long, 2.13 metres (7 feet) wide and weigh in at a hearty 44 tonnes.
The smallest vehicles we use are 7.5 tonne trucks.

Making sure your Meadowmat delivery is free from hiccups
We automatically assume that your delivery address has access for an artic lorry - unless you tell us differently.
If you are not sure, please talk to a member of our transport team - they would rather help you at this stage than have a whole days' deliveries help up because a lorry is stuck somewhere.
If you place your order online please add a note to tell us that delivery is restricted and tell us what size of vehicle CAN access your address. Q Lawns reserve the right to charge a £25 re-delivery fee if our vehicle cannot access your site at the first attempt.
It's really helpful if you could also let us know about other potential hiccups - eg you may live near a school where it's impossible to park at drop off and pick up times.
Remember too that delivery is kerbside only and that the road surface needs to be firm and smooth so that your Meadowmat can be unloaded by pallet truck
