Good product, as described. Delivery was good and driver helpful, although purchased individual bags which arrived stacked on a single pallet and the top-most bag was ripped open with most of its contents of chip bark missing.

Good product but shame about delivery. Two bulk bags stacked on top of each other. Thanks to a fantastic del guy he managed to get it off lorry. But very precarious and not very safe. It was loaded on with a crane but they seem to forget it's not unloaded by one. Common sense needed I think.

We were happy with our purchase from start to finish and happy with the wood chip as well. And we need more so will order more today. Our Kindergarten garden is looking good and the children enjoyed transporting the wood chip from to car park to the garden and then laying it out. The product is lovely too. Happy all around.

Simply excellent, from start to finish: easy to use website, great customer service (as had question regarding order to delivery turnaround - which was a very quick 3 days), delivery was made using Ramage who's driver was pleasant and accommodating, and finally....The product which is exactly what we had imagined and were looking for as a decent & substantial affordable surface for our sons new play area, whilst looking fab at the same time, precisely as CPA's listing describes it - well better in fact I would say, so thank you very much!

A totally top class service from start to finished, from getting the right material, (bark chipping), providing a sample, the ease of placing the order, to the very helpful delivery man. It is rare to get this quality of service, and we appreciated it

After initially trying to deliver to our narrow cul-de-sac on an 18 tonne lorry, the order was quickly swapped to a smaller truck for delivery the following day. Good communication throughout and great product. Highly recommended.
