DepositsIn some cases, products in your order may be delivered on a pallet or in a reusable container, or may be an associated item such as a lawn spreader for turf underlay. In this case you will be charged a deposit for the extra item. This deposit is refundable, provided you return it in good condition.
What makes us different?
Our products are top quality, but it's service and delivery that really makes us different.
We've got over 40 trucks on the road and our drivers are the best-trained and most professional in the business. You'll know exactly when your delivery is arriving, with regular texts to keep you updated, including one on the day of delivery with a precise arrival time, truck number and driver's name. If you can't be there, our driver will take photos of the products in situ, time and date stamped, so you know your goods have arrived and exactly where they are.
DIFOT - Delivering In Full, On Time-is only the start. Our crane trucks have the longest reach in the business - up to 21 metres. Up, down, across - up multiple stories, into excavation pits, through windows, across roofs - our cranes and expert drivers can put your products wherever you need them. You don't need a site crane when BC Sands makes your delivery.
It's not just bulk bags and pallets that we can lift - check out this video of our 21m crane truck lifting a tree over a pool and into exactly the right position.
Tradie tip: that if one of our crane trucks is delivering to your site, you can request up to three extra lifts? See our crane hire page for details. Charges apply.
Did you know... that most of our trucks are available for hire? Tipper, crane or truck & dog, when you need an extra truck to take on the load, we're ready to help. We only do wet hire - which means you get the driver too. Hire starts from 2 hours, rather than the usual 4 hour minimum. Call us on (02) 8543 3401 to find out more.
