Unfortunately, we are currently unable to ship products overseas when purchased via our website. To obtain a full quote containing your required delivery, please contact us directly on:   01277 297 001 and   [email protected].  We are more than happy to help.

How will my items be delivered?

Smaller items may be delivered by Parcelforce. If you are not in, you will be carded for collection at your local post office.

Most of our products are larger and will be delivered on palletised service.  They will require booking in on a specific date for delivery. You will be contacted in advance to arrange the delivery; please ensure that you are able to receive the delivery on that day.

How long will my products take to arrive?

Product arrival dates may vary depending on the complexity and scale of the project. Every product is handcrafted and not mass-produced.  We usually run at a 4-7 week lead time. We always try to meet your requirements and often delivery prior to set lead time.  For more information contact our head office on: [email protected] kindly quoting the products you are interested in.

Will my products be pre-assembled?

The vast majority of products will come pre-assembled and hassle-free. Complex and bespoke products may require us to assemble them onsite. More information can be found on the desired product page or contact us directly by email.

What should I look out for?

As much as possible we have designed our products to come hassle free and fully assembled.

However due to size restrictions on pallets, our largest items are delivered in several parts, this is because of the sizes and weights of the products.  For these particular items, MOE offers a complete delivery and installation service.

If you would like to install our products yourself; your order may include parts such as:

Wood Sections: These are the packs that make up the wooden parts to your equipment. They are constructed and packaged very carefully so that no parts should fall out.

Hardware Bag: The hardware bag contains the nuts, bolts and screws necessary to build your equipment. It may also contain accessories such as climbing ropes or buckets.  All our items come with assembly instructions.

Where your item is expected to be delivered in parts, we will let you know on your delivery tracking exactly what to look out for. We don’t currently allow our couriers to make part deliveries, so all parts of your equipment should be delivered at the same time.

International Orders

We can ship our resources around the world. Simply get in touch via email with details of what you would like to order and where you would like it delivered to. We will then reply with a quote for delivery charges for your approval.

There is a problem with my delivery. What should I do?

If you believe that something is missing or damaged from your delivery, please contact us as soon as possible.

Installation Services

Installation Rates & Areas

At MOE, we understand that many of our products are extremely large and require hands-on installation knowledge to get your setting or garden all set up nicely and safety.

We believe that playground equipment installation should be an exciting process – not a stressful one. So, we ensure to find a specific date to suit you before planning an exact method of installation.

Along with extensive experience, this planning is at the heart of the installation process. Furthermore, all our team members are DBS checked and fully advised regarding the day to day running of each site they visit. This allows us to complete the project with minimal disruption to our clients.

With everything planned and in order, our team of expert installers work efficiently and safely to complete the project to high industry standards. You can trust that all of our installations are completed to the full satisfaction of everyone involved.

Below are our Installation rates and zones.  Our helpful and attentive HQ team are on hand to answer all your questions.  Contact us today for assistance.
