So you’ve spotted Gillies & Mackay online and have your dream timber building in mind.
Perhaps you are dreaming of finally finding a shed-home for all of those loose tools around the house, or maybe it’s the attraction of soaking up the sun with friends in one of our summerhouse?
Whatever your dream of making your G&M we regularly get asked questions about delivery.
Luckily, this blog sets out to answer them all!
Throughout this blog we will look at;
- Where do we deliver to?
- Is assembly included?
- Do we charge for delivery?
- Can we do delivery or pick up only?
There you go, you know what we’re going to talk about, so let’s dive in!
Where do Gillies & Mackay deliver timber buildings to?
Our G&M timber buildings have always been pretty popular, but over the past few years, we have had enquiries from all over the UK…even outside the UK, wow, thanks Sheddies!
Unfortunately, as much as we would love to promise everyone a life full of their G&M dreams, we can only deliver to certain parts of the UK.
Scotland: you are the lucky bunch! Anyone in Scotland can place an order at G&M and get the timber building of their dreams. Whether you live in mainland Scotland, the Isles, or way up North, we’ve got you covered.
England: Sheddies in England, we’re afraid it’s a bit more complicated. We cannot deliver everywhere in England (not yet anyway), but we can deliver to any English Sheddies that are in the North of England. This means that if you live in places like Carlise, you can start getting excited because we will deliver to you!
Is assembly of your timber building included?
The simple answer is YES!
It’s certainly easier to watch your beautiful G&M being built than it is to build it yourself, especially when you don’t have to pay any extra pennies for assembly.
As for why, well, that’s because we’re pretty fussy when it comes to how your G&M is erected, but we’ll talk about that later.
Do you charge for delivery?
This question is a bit trickier than a straight yes or no. If your G&M is getting delivered within a 30 mile radius of our office in Errol, then good news, your delivery and assembly is free!
If you’re outside the 30 mile radius, there is an additional charge.
The extra costs of delivery beyond the 30 mile radius are priced at £3.90 per mile (one way).
As an example, if your G&M is going to be delivered to Dean Village in Edinburgh which is 45 miles away from Errol, the delivery fee would be (45-30miles) x £3.90. That’s £58.50.
Ordering from further afar than a 1.5 hour drive from Errol, things start to get a little more tricky as we may be required to stay over. For that reason, we can give you a delivery fee on enquiry.
Can you do delivery or pick-up only?
The short answer is no.
In the past we have done this, however, it causes both you and I issues when we allow this to happen. It’s much better (for us both) if you allow us to put up your building for you and to eliminate any causes for issues with your building down the line.
Our on-site joiners are G&M qualified and have been practising putting up your dream G&M in a very specific way for years now. They ken exactly what they are doing and you can trust that they will assemble your building to the standard you deserve.
A G&M building, should and will (if correctly erected and looked after) last a lifetime! Yes, a whole lifetime!
Once you’ve placed your order, our fabulous team in the workshop will build your G&M in such a way that it allows for the master team of on-site joiners to erect your building to its inch-perfect design.
So to protect you (and our buildings) our master on-site joiners will do all of the hard work for you!

In short, we will deliver and assemble your building for free, as long as you are within a 30 mile radius. Anything over that, there may be a small delivery fee, but we can keep you right with that 🙂
Hopefully that helps answer any delivery and assembly questions you may have.
