Stables and Mobile Field Shelters Delivery

Colt understands that buying a new stable or mobile field shelter isn’t always a straightforward process. There are certain things to consider like how to get your building delivered and built, whether there are any groundwork requirements needed before erection and if you need to apply for planning permission. It can be a little daunting, but don’t worry! Colt Stables has lots of experience in suppling stables and mobile field shelters for customers of all sizes. This short article outlines what you can expect from Colt Stables when you purchase a product from us.

Upon Receiving Your Order

When you place an order online with Colt Stables, you only pay 50% of the cost of your stable block, mobile stable or mobile field shelter up front. We take that payment online and then contact you to confirm we have your correct details and floor plan. At this stage we will also discuss any special requirements and bespoke fittings you may want for your structure. After these details have been discussed we will consult you on any groundwork requirements you may need and whether there are any possible access problems to your property.

Groundwork Requirements

If you are ordering a fixed stable block from us, you will need to have a base prepared. If you don’t already have one, you will need a concrete base with a single course of brickwork. If this is work you need to have completed before the delivery of your stable, we can e-mail you a base plan to aid you with the necessary work to be completed. It is important that these works are carried out properly for the longevity of your stable and well being of your animals. If you are unsure about completing this process yourself, please let us know as we are happy to advise you. If you would like to hire a professional company to carry out the works for you, we have a partnership with respected company, Kestrel Builders, who we can put you in contact with.

If you are purchasing a mobile stable or mobile field shelter, you only require a flat, level area to locate your new structure.

Planning Permission

If you are putting up a new stable block and installing purposeful groundwork to support it, we advise you contact your local authority regarding planning permission before laying any foundations. If you would like any guidance in this application process (if it becomes necessary) please let us know as we are very experienced in this field. In many instances, with mobile stables and mobile field shelters, planning permission is not needed as they are not deemed permanent structures. However, it is still advisable to inform the relevant authority and check.

Product Delivery

Once we have confirmed your order and all other relevant considerations have been discussed, we will organise a suitable delivery date with you. At this point we will discuss any possible problems regarding access to your property and how and where to organise the build. The time taken for delivery, if there are no any other considerations to be made (e.g. planning, groundwork etc), usually takes 10-14 days. However, please be aware that this guide time can increase during exceptionally busy times of the year but we will always try to meet your requirements.

If everything is ok, our team will arrive at your property with your stable or field shelter and assemble it for you with minimum fuss. We aim to complete the build without disrupting you, leaving your site tidy and your new building ready to use immediately.

On the day of delivery, we request that you be present so we can ensure you are happy with your building and then collect the final payment from you.
