We are living in uncertain and difficult times, and the coronavirus is affecting all of our lives in many ways. We all still have lots of questions about what the future holds and there are still few definite answers available at this time.

Here at Premier Polytunnels we want to reassure you that we continue to treat the safety and wellbeing of our staff, our suppliers and our customers as a priority - We are following the guidance available to us, monitoring the situation on a daily basis, and updating our practises accordingly.

Current Dispatch Lead Time

We are currently experiencing supply-chain issues for some of the raw materials required to manufacture our Commercial Polytunnels and Sheep House Polytunnels. Combined with a surge in orders on an unprecedented level, this means that our dispatch lead time for these larger structures has had to increase.

Commercial Polytunnels and Sheep Houses – Dispatch lead time of early to mid-November.

Garden Polytunnels, Cloches and Fruit Cages – Dispatch lead time of 10-15 working days.

Polytunnel Covers and Accessories – Dispatch lead time of 5-7 working days.

*Subject to the availability of the necessary raw materials.

We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and updating our practises accordingly, and delivery estimates could change regularly, depending on the number of orders received and on the availability of the raw materials required.

The Delivery page of our website will be updated on a daily basis with regards to expected dispatch lead times, therefore please ensure you check this information on the day of placing your order.
