Do I need to be on site when my delivery arrives?
All Deliveries must be inspected and signed off by the customer or a customer’s representative at the time of delivery to ensure the correct product, colour, and quantity has been delivered and delivered in new and undamaged condition.

If you want us to access your site via neighbouring land, you are required to obtain written permission from the relevant property owner prior to delivery and any damage to the site will be your responsibility.
Should the driver not be able to determine a safe location or there is no obvious space to place the product on site and you or your representative are not on site at time of delivery, the driver will try to contact you to seek instructions.
In the event you can’t be contacted the driver will not unload your order and will return it to our depot and await instructions. If your order is returned to our depot Richmond Sand, Gravel & Landscaping will charge a re-delivery fee to re-deliver the order to site.
