BORAL BRICK DELIVERY INFORMATION

The following information is provided directly from Boral and must be read before placement of any order

 

Placing your order

When placing an order, please take the time to give clear information as Boral will charge quite hefty fees if they are unable to deliver bricks due to inaccurate information being provided.

This will also cause delays for you getting your Bricks as they will need to return the bricks to the yard and your re-delivery will have to be scheduled in behind all other scheduled deliveries.

When placing an order, on the final page of our online ordering system - please advise:

  1. If you need a crane or a forklift (click here for further forklift info)
  2. A nearest cross street
  3. Of any overhead obstructions such as power poles, phone lines or trees (if ordering a crane truck delivery)
  4. Open trenches, pipes or other materials obstructing access to your site

Allocation of stock for large quantity order

If you require multiple deliveries of a face brick (not just commons) you will need to reserve the overall amount of bricks required by indicating in the order notes section how many bricks you will be needing overall. This is to allow for the overall amount of bricks you need to be put aside for you, thus preventing a variation in colour etc. from delivery to delivery due to bricks being made from clay, which can very from batch to batch.

Each consequent order for these allocated bricks will need to have reference made to this batching process / your original order to ensure the bricks delivered are from the same batch of bricks allocated for you. Failure to do this will result in bricks being delivered from different batchings of bricks.

Once you have reserved bricks, you must take regular deliveries (at least every 4 weeks), to guarantee the original quantity is reserved for that order. If no movement of stock occurs within this time the reserved product will be returned to stock and you run the risk that the balance of your order will be from different batch.

Notification of variations in brick colour / texture needs to be advised within 3 days of receipt of the bricks received. No claims will be accepted after this period or once bricks have been laid.

Commons are only batched per delivery. Bulk orders remain un-batched until an order is made & at such time this quantity only is batched. Although no 4 week reservation rule on commons orders applies, if regular (within 4 wks) deliveries are not being taken the order may be completed, in the case of a price increase the order will need to be re-negotiated with sales person.

Delivery costs if unloading takes more than 1 hour (Demurrage)

Boral allow up to 1 hour for unloading - anything over 1 hour is charged out at a rate of $1.19 per minute (inc GST) - Boral will endeavour to advise of this onsite by the driver if possible beforehand. This charge will be invoiced seperately from any initial invoice.
