Marshgate Timber - Terms & Conditions

All quotations are valid for a period of three months.

Any clerical errors, whether verbal or written, may be subject to correction if necessary.

Date and time of delivery are as accurate as possible, however, occasionally there may be delays, usually due to adverse weather conditions or delayed timber deliveries. For this reason, unless stated otherwise, quoted delivery dates are not part of the terms of any contract. No reduction in price will, therefore, be made for late delivery.

Marshgate Timber cannot be held responsible for inaccurate drawings or specifications supplied by the customer.

As we are continually trying to improve our products Marshgate Timber reserve the right to make changes to published specifications and designs without notice.



The customer undertakes to have sufficient funds available to pay the invoice in full from the day of order.

We require a 25% deposit (50% on orders over £5,000) to secure an order, with the balance paid strictly on delivery of any building supplied.

Deposits may be refunded, minus an administration charge of 10%. If work has commenced or goods have been partially constructed, all relevant costs incurred will be deducted from the deposit.

All materials remain the property of Marshgate Timber until payment is made in full. Marshgate Timber reserves the right to dismantle and remove any buildings not paid for in full, and it is agreed that the customer will allow full site access for this purpose.



Marshgate Timber recommend a square, level and prepared base, comprised of either paving slabs or a concrete pad. A well prepared base is essential to the overall finish of the building quality/structure but also the aesthetic and long term function of the timber building purchased. We require good access up to the customers base for a 4x4 and trailer. If the building site does not allow access to the base or if the delivery vehicle gets stuck on site, it is the customer’s responsibility to supply help to deliver materials and/or recover delivery vehicles. To avoid additional charges please ensure that the site allows safe access e.g. a hardcore track or a tractor is available to tow the delivery vehicle into and out of the site. Due to Health and Safety Regulations, we can only carry buildings a short distance.

Customers must ensure that all materials/buildings delivered to the site are adequately covered by insurance against fire, theft, extreme weather conditions, or any other loss or damage.



All timbers are inspected at the time of manufacture. However as timber is a natural product we cannot accept responsibility for any warping, cracking or shrinkage after construction is complete. We highly recommend all timber buildings are finished with a good quality water proof sealer. This acts to seal the end grains of any exposed timber, which is needed due to the porous nature of timber. For maintenance of the building long term, we recommend annual use of a high quality water proofer used strictly in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

It is the customers responsibility to ensure any mobile buildings are securely fixed down.

Any issues with a timber building must be reported to us within 7 days of the delivery/completion of the building, prior to any livestock being admitted and internal work being carried out.

Marshgate Timber will not be held responsible for damage caused by extreme weather conditions, fire, theft, livestock damage or Acts of god.

By placing an order with Marshgate Timber, the customer agrees to these terms and conditions.
