How will you deliver my bedding?

Using our own diverse fleet- we can offer a Nationwide delivery service throughout the UK and Ireland. With articulated and rigid vehicles- we’ll take your farm access into consideration.

 

Need help unloading? A Moffett Unloader is also available on request at no additional charge.

 

Bulk delivery is using an articulated moving floor trailer- usually averaging around 22-24 tonnes.

If you like, our HGV Driver will call when 1 hour away, to give you chance to prepare for our arrival!

What is the minimum order quantity?

We can deliver anything from 1 pallet via a pallet network, to full artic loads on our own vehicles- or something in-between to suit your requirements.

 

We’ll take orders for a part load- and work to match up the remainder of the load in your area, to keep our carbon footprint to a minimum, and make sure you’re not paying over-the-odds for haulage

How much is your bedding?

All prices are calculated using your mileage, to generate a delivered price. We can offer more competitive prices for increased load sizes. Speak with our Sales Team who will advise on prices delivered to your area.

Is your bedding compatible with my slurry system?

We’ve got a range of bedding products which are suitable for using with all slurry set-ups.

 

Whether you’re spreading your muck as solids or liquids, we’ve got a solution. Why not use our ‘bedding selector’ tool to help you find your perfect bedding?

Do I need to use lime alongside your bedding?

We’d suggest that since our Powderbed and Finebed cubicle bedding is so dry- no additional lime is required to keep somatic cell counts under control. As long as the bedding is changed regularly, bacterial growth will be inhibited – saving you time and money on lime.

 

Does Platts bedding work well with my bedding dispenser?

Absolutely! All Platts bedding products are compatible with all types of sawdust dispensers.

 

With our finer products, such as Powderbed  and Finebed, since only a minimal amount of product is required on each cow cubicle- just make sure you’re not using too much bedding- to get the greatest benefit from using the product.

Can I try a product before buying a full load?

Yes- we can arrange for a single pallet to be shipped Nationwide, using a pallet network- ideal if you’d like to try a product before committing to a full load. Just ask our team for more information…

Can I store the pallets outdoors?

As standard, all of our palletised products are covered in a weatherproof and UV-proof hood- designed to allow for convenient outdoor storage, whatever the weather.
