Delivery

Efficient Delivery

MD Brick deal with only the best quality manufacturers, and because of our buying power we not only provide very competitive prices but also great service. If we can not obtain a direct delivery from the manufacturer within your required time frame we have the ability to utilise our own transport.

It is increasingly difficult to organise deliveries of relatively small quantities when dealing direct with the big manufacturers, often you can wait up to 5 working days or more. At MD Brick we can organise a delivery of almost any quantity of bricks and blocks at YOUR specified time. Saving you TIME and MONEY.

For more information on the specifications of our trucks and forks, take a look at our transport flyer.

Delivery Obstacles

Are there any obstacles hindering the delivery or truck access to your site. These can include:

  • Excess rubbish on site, frames, trusses, sand or roof tiles.

Busy Streets

Is your site on a busy street? It is important to advise us of this in advance as you will need to ensure that traffic controls have been organized to enable the safe unloading of your bricks.

Our trucks are Big!

Delivering your bricks to where you want them is one of our highest priorities, however it is important to ensure that the truck/forklift will be able to fit down your requested access path so we can place your bricks where you want them. Truck and fork dimensions are:

Truck Dimensions
  • 8 Wheeler: Width 3m, Length 10m
  • Truck & Trailer: Width 3m, Length 20m
Fork Dimensions:
  • Requires a minimum width of 2.8m and height of 2.8m

Our trucks are Heavy!

Is the ground condition or access path suitable for a delivery? Wet, steep or rough sites can make deliveries more difficult or unsafe, so it is important that you advise us in advance of any possible problems.

  • 8 Wheeler: 27 Tonne
  • Truck & Trailer: 50 Tonne

Footpath Access

Will the truck or crane block or restrict access to the footpath when unloading?

  • MD Brick will always endeavour to deliver your bricks as close as possible to where you want them, however there may be certain restrictions imposed by councils regarding the unloading of product over pedestrian footpaths unless adequate permits, signage and traffic controls are put in place. It will be necessary for you to ensure what requirements need to be met and that the necessary controls are in place prior to our product being delivered.

Powerlines

Trucks require a minimum safe working distance of 3 metres from any electrical wires. Please make sure you advise MD Brick if there are any power lines in close proximity to your project.

Delivery Restrictions

For safety reasons bricks can only be delivered 1.5 metres above or below the truck deck.

  • Bricks can only be delivered onto suspended slabs up to 1.5 metres in height if a pallet jack is used on site to move the brick packs and spread the weight evenly around the slab.
