Delivery Solutions

As the UK’s number one supplier of spare parts for the commercial catering and refrigeration industries we provide bespoke delivery solutions to satisfy all needs and requirements. These unique nationwide packages are just one of the reasons why the First Choice name has become synonymous with excellence.

We can consolidate all the requirements of our customers into a single shipment with no minimum order level. Orders for spare parts are carefully packaged by our despatch department and those received from mainland UK before 17:00 are shipped by an overnight service for next day delivery. The delivery of goods is normally made before 17:30 on the day following despatch.

If our standard next day service is not quick enough for you then our trade counter is open from 8.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 8.30am to 12.30pm on Saturdays. We also offer, at a small premium, the following services which will cater for any eventuality

  • Standard Next Day is 08:00 to 18:00
  • Next Day before 12:00
  • Next Day before 10:30
  • Guaranteed Saturday 08:00 to 12:00
  • Same day.

Registered trade customers can take advantage of our other innovative delivery solutions such as through the night by-box, Royal Mail PUDO and in-boot deliveries.
