The Zest Dorset Arbour with Storage Box is delivered from central UK stocks held by Zest4Leisure. Depending on product size, one of two established carriers will undertake home delivery.
Typically, a 7.5 ton lorry will deliver. This will reach most locations an average car can. On occasion, a smaller 3.5 ton vehicle may be used for smaller items.
Unloading will take place at the kerb-side or onto your adjacent driveway. Vehicles will not leave the public highway. A driver may be willing to carry the goods into your garden at their own discretion. Goods cannot be carried through your home, therefore if necessary please arrange some extra help privately.
This product benefits from a free delivery service within mainland England, Wales and Southern Scotland. The above postcode checker will confirm this for you.
Delivery will typically be made within the period quoted on this product. For larger products, the carrier will call and book in a convenient delivery date. For smaller products, a delivery date will be provided by email from the carrier, which will include a reference to allow online tracking.
Less frequently serviced locations may be subject to an extended delivery period of up to an additional 7 days. These distant locations include the Scottish Highlands and Northern Ireland.
Zest4Leisure will deliver beyond mainland Great Britain, but only to Northern Ireland. Therefore, for this product we are unable to service; Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Channel Islands and all of the Scottish Islands.
Due to additional delivery zone fees, certain Scottish Highlands (Zone B) and Northern Ireland (Zone D) locations can only be serviced at a distant surcharge (at cost). The above post code checker can confirm if a surcharge will apply.
These locations include:
Zone B = Scottish Highlands (AB1-9/13-14/21-23/30-56, IV1-56, KA27-28, KW1-14, FK19-21, PA20-39, PH11-40) at £14.99
Zone D = Northern Ireland (BT) at £44.99
For a limited range of bulky and/or extra-heavy products (gazebos and large furniture sets) to Zones B & D, the employment of a dedicated carrier at considerable additional cost is necessary. Such products can only therefore be serviced to Zone B & D locations at a bespoke Zone C rate of £149.99.

Shiplap Tongue & Groove
A tongue & groove jointed boarding offering a smooth planed finish. Each upper face is shaped with a shallow curve to offer a shiplap, overlapping appearance.

Arrived on time but there was some damage to several parts, mainly split wood. Instructions were unclear and on poor quality photocopied paper. Pleased with end result due to persistence of my construction team.

Looks good and only took an hour to construct, only one problem, the back rest was cockeyed and needed to be restated, but apart from that, very happy.

Excellent item, it was delivered on time with a very helpful driver who was pleased to place the packed arbour where I wanted. The arbour itself was well made and easy to assemble, the finlshed article looked so impressive, one bit of advice it is very heavy and really needs two persons. I cannot fault it and good value.

Being a retired joiner l used more screws here and there. I also put extra bearers to give the base of the storage box extra strength. l also mastic gunned the roof overlaps with clear mastic and did the same with the gaps in the seat section because of water getting in. Overall l am quite happy with the unit. (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: Thank you for your feedback. From the enhancements you've made you certainly now have your own deluxe model!)

Fitted together well with good instructions. You have to drill your own screw holes as these are not done for you, but some parts are assembled like the seat and all the main panels. Fit was good. Very pleased

Delighted with the arbour - or sitooterie as we call it. Assembly was much more difficult than we anticipated as we had to drill holes so it took at least a day and a certain amount of cursing!

This is by far one of the best additions to my garden. The comments from everyone who has seen it have been amazing and I have added hanging baskets on each end which look great. FIVE stars at least.

Should have come in 3 boxes, only 2 delivered, delivery companies error. I was told to open the boxes and work out what parts were missing. This I did and eventually the missing box arrived. The fixings were missing couldn't be bothered going through the hassle of contacting the supplier again so I bought some screws. Erecting the arbour isn't too difficult but the roof isn't the easiest to get right, ended up fitting a couple of brackets to make it more rigid. Apart from that it looks pretty good.

Good strong construction, but rough finish on some of the wood. The arbour has been painted and looks good in the garden.

Great item for the garden. Clear instructions with photos at each step but you do need to lay everything out and read them carefully to make sure no mistakes made. Not the products fault of course! A couple of the slats in the roof had split and only noticed this once up. Used sealant to repair.

My Mother bought this for my wife and I's first wedding anniversary. Simple instructions and easy to assemble. Despite it stating that 2 people would be required to erect it, i handled it myself with ease. I would say however that the bottom storage box isn't waterproof neither is the roof. I was required to use exterior wood filler in several places due to the wood being split and water dripping through.

Easy to assemble, customer service was excellent. Delivery on time and friendly. I will definitely be using One Garden again. The Dorset Arbour was a present for my parents, it looks beautiful assembled in the corner of the garden. Thank you Onegarden.
