Garden Buildings - Delivered to Somerset, Devon, Dorset and Beyond
INDUSTRY UP-DATE 12/08/2020
At this moment in time the whole industry is experiencing long lead times from point of order to delivery. We are now quoting 12+ weeks. This to most would appear to be excessive. The simple fact of the matter is that everyone involved in this industry has , this year, seen an unusually high volume of sales and this has put a strain on the manufacturers.
There is now a 'break-down' in the supply chain - Timber is in very short supply, demand is now out-stripping availability. Shortages of Felt Nails, Shed Locks, Door Furniture (all of which are imported from China) are simply adding to the problems we are already experiencing.
People are asking whether the Coronavirus Pandemic can be blamed. Well, the easy answer is yes. The overall problems facing all businesses at the moment are also affecting our industry.
There is nothing we can do about it, please be patient and understand the underlying problems everyone is experiencing.
We ask you to appreciate that the lead-times we have quoted have been given in good faith and as a guide (they may be extended through circumstances beyond our control).
We have no idea when the situation will return to normal and in the meantime we thank you for your understanding.
We are now operating as normal. Office and Show Site now open 08.00hrs-17.30hrs Monday-Friday, 09.00hrs-16.00hrs Saturdays
