You will not be able to pre-book a delivery or installation date when placing your order, as this will be arranged directly with the manufacturer. Within 5 working days of placing your order, the manufacturer will contact you via email to explain how to prepare the base for installation. The base must be either a solid, level timber supportive base, concrete, concrete slabs, or a pro shed base (plastic base). You should ensure that there is a clearance of 18 inches (450mm) of working space around the base so that the installers can access all areas of the structure. Shortly after receiving the email from the manufacturer, you will receive a phone call to schedule a convenient delivery and installation date. Installation may occur within 15 working days of delivery.   Note: This service is not available on all Forest products, please check if this is available for your chosen product under the 'Choose Additional Options' above.
