So many carriers are unable to move artificial grass, as a roll is over 4 metres in length pallet companies will either shy away or charge for several pallets. The remainder of these companies struggle to move rolls of artificial grass often weighing 300kg, with fork trucks damaging the stock. Mixed loads of grass and boxes don’t work all too often damaging either the grass or else the boxed goods.
At RunGrass we use specialist carpet carriers, this still causes problems but at least our artificial grass arrives with our customers intact and undamaged. The biggest problem we have is that many installers are not sure how much grass the are going to need until they have finished all their preparation. When the preparation is finished they want the grass immediately, unfortunately we don’t have an overnight delivery service and grass can take up to a week to reach some customers. The man-and-a-van couriers can help with these problems but can also prove to be price prohibitive.
Customers in Yorkshire can come a collect their artificial grass from us, we are close to the A1M in Wetherby.
