Full Crates or Split Crates (Paving Stones)
Buying full crates is always going to offer you the best value as these crates are shipped directly from our sea port based warehouses to customers addresses across the UK.
Split crate options incur a slightly higher cost as these crates have to be transported from our sea port based warehouses to our central warehouse in Milton Keynes. Here they are custom made / re-packed to provide the quantity required and are shipped to our customers address. The benefit to customers is to save money by not having to buy a full crate when a split crate option may work out more cost effective.
If in any doubt, just get in touch and we will be happy to help.
Our Brazilian Operation
Large slate blocks - on their way to our team
Our Team in Brazil - customers getting the thumbs up !
We import our Brazilian slate under our product brand RioSlate and also export to other European countries like Holland and Germany, whilst we work with a number of quarry owners we have invested in our own production with one of our quarry partners that gives us greater advantages than merely "buying and selling" - these benefits are passed on to our customers in terms of better quality and competitive prices.
For large scale projects (circa 200m2+) we can manufacture specific sizes and finishes as per your requirements and take care of the logistics from production to delivery. For further details of this service please get in touch and we will be happy to explain the process in more detail.
