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.
Zest4Leisure deliver across mainland Great Britain. Therefore, for this product we are unable to service; Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Northern Ireland and all of the Scottish Islands.
Due to additional delivery zone fees, certain Scottish Highlands locations (Zone B) 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 (AB, IV, KW, FK19-21, PA36, PA38-40, PH17-26, PH30-41) at £14.99
For a limited range of bulky and/or extra-heavy products (gazebos and large furniture sets) to Zone B, the employment of a dedicated carrier at considerable additional cost is necessary. Such products can only therefore be serviced to Zone B locations at a bespoke Zone C rate of at least £149.99*. (*Zone C availability and cost confirmed on order receipt).

Pre delivery service very good. One complete package missing, ie only 2 packages delivered. Outstanding package delivered within a couple of days.
Some parts quite warped, particularly seat back, therefore difficult to construct. Floor panel does not fit accurately, leaving a gap along the front side. Overall pleased with the item.

Great looking arbour which was reasonably easy to assemble. Shame there were no existing pilot holes as this made the assembly process more complicated. Also noticed that the storage area is not waterproof.

Good value for money. Excellent with the storage space. Only problem is when put together I wanted to paint it and couldn’t get to the bits behind the backrest without difficulty. Overall a good buy.

Excellent service. Arrived when expected. Product easy to assemble but required an extra pair of hands but that could be due to the fact that we are in our late 70's. Very pleased with how it looks and will certainly keep your website in mind if requiring any other garden products.

I'm pleased with it, now its up, and my friends have admired it. But when it was delivered I was a little disappointed as the wood was damp, looked a little 'unfinished" and 3 pieces had cracks in. Having said that, once I contacted one garden, they explained the dampness was probably down to the wood being impregnated with preservative, and they immediately sent 3 new panels without question. So top marks for customer service. Finally - I would not have been able to put this up myself, as there are no screw holes marked or drilled. The instructions were good, but you definitely need an element of DIY skills. so only buy it if you can do it, or know someone who can. It is not like an cupboard flat pack.

Arrived in 3 boxes - well packed and protected. Trial inspection and assembly carried out prior to delivery to recipient for birthday. This was worthwhile as it revealed a number of minor faults - batten for storage box misaligned - staples securing base had missed their target completely - small hinges securing seat panel were very loose - actually an inadequate size. An otherwise good product let down by final quality control

Item arrived when promised but the seat was damaged. A replacement was sent but took 6 days. Easy to assemble once the holes were inserted. Roof assembly found to leak when raining and water penetrates the seat so nothing can be put in the box area unless waterproof. Quality control could be improved but value for money otherwise.

Excellent value for money. No problems with self assembly, fairly solid & heavy, just help required to move to final position. No hesitation in recommending.

The Dorset Arbour was an Xmas present from my mum and it's only this week I've managed to put it together! It's a good solid item, not a flimsy thing and good value for money. It would've been helpful if the screw holes had been pre drilled, as I wasn't expecting to drill the holes and found it difficult at times, especially as the wood was very hard in places. I also had great difficulty in getting the bottom part of the storage box in place and had to take the small front panel off, but I got there in the end! Now it's in place, it looks lovely and is comfy to sit on, even without a cushion, so I'm a happy bunny.

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.
