Harker Garden Buildings LTD installs all our garden buildings and fencing products which includes our knowledgeable installation team delivering, unpacking and assembling the product ensuring that it is fitted correctly and safely.

The team will also remove any packaging from your garden after assembly so you can sit back and let us do the hard work! The agreed delivery date may change due to weather conditions; we will notify you beforehand by phone or in writing.

We are currently only able to offer the service to limited post codes:

The postcodes that we offer delivery & installation are all within a 50 mile radius of our workshop in Carlisle, CA6 4DS.

If you are outside the above radius we may be able to assemble at an extra charge – Please give us a call on 01228 674140. A level concrete or paved base suitable for the size of the building must be laid ready prior to assembly. (Photographs may be required of the base and a basic diagram of the garden). If on arrival the base is not suitable and the installation is abandoned, the customer will become liable for additional charges. The customer will be given the option of either us repairing the base (additional charge) if this cannot be done at the time of delivery then we would have to return with the materials (additional charge) to lay the base correctly or we can re-book the installation date to give you time to fix the base, a return delivery charge will be applied.

It is the responsibility of the customer to provide free and unobstructed access for product delivery and entry to the fitting site. We recommend that panel sizes are checked to allow access through archways and doors. There may be an additional charge if the building is to be assembled a large distance from where it has been delivered.

The installation Service does not include the fitting of any optional extras or other products bought at the time of order.

It is advised that the customer is present at the time of fitting but not essential, however, we would require written permission to deliver and install in the customer’s absence along with detailed instructions of fitting requirements.
