About our Turf Delivery services

Tolleshunt Turf provide a personalised delivery dervice direct to your door, ensuring your products reach you in perfect healthy condition.

What you need to check before receiving your turf delivery

When placing your order, you will be asked for your delivery day preferences.  We will do our best to match your needs but we cannot guarantee a delivery day upon order placement.

You need to let us know of any potential problems that the delivery driver may have such as yellow lines, low hanging trees and overhead wires.  There is a section on the order form for you to let us know of these potential problems.

On the day of delivery the driver will need sufficient space to park and safely unload. You will be given an estimated time of delivery so please make sure that the delivery area is kept free of parked vehicles during this time.

How the turf products will be delivered

Once the lorry has safely parked the driver will begin unloading using a hiab.  This is a crane mounted on the back of the lorry that is operated by the driver.  Turf will be lifted off on pallets, while bulk bags of blended topsoil, bark and logs are lifted by the bag handles.

Our delivery drivers will do their best to leave products on your property but are limited by the reach of the hiab.  Please remember that deliveries are to kerbside only and that once unloaded, you are responsible for the product.

For further information on deliveries see Terms and Conditions

Turf Collections

Ordered turf can be collected directly from our yard. This has proved to be very popular with both private customers and landscape gardeners as freshly harvested turf can be collected on the day of order. We have large concrete loading areas throughout our nursery so that turf can be despatched from the field to your vehicle within minutes of harvest. Small orders will be loaded into your vehicle by a member of our team and for large orders a forklift will be used.

The address of our yard for product collection is:

Tolleshunt Turf Farms
Green Farm
Salcott
Maldon
Essex.CM9 8HL

Turf can also be collected from our turf stockists in Suffolk, please contact us for details.

For further information on collections see our Terms and Conditions page.

How some other turf companies deliver

Many other turf companies use an outside party (a courier) to deliver turf to the retail market. The courier system involves the use of manual hand-pump forklifts which are very limited in use.  For instance they cannot get up a raised kerb, cannot move on gravel and cannot lift the products over obstacles. The palleted turf can only be moved as far as the operator is able to pull or push the forklift with pallets of turf sometimes weighing over 1.5 tonnes. Please be aware of how your turf is going to be delivered, Tolleshunt Turf does not use this system!
