Coronavirus (covid-19) Update - WE CONTINUE TO DELIVER DAILY (contactless, hygienic delivery)








Covid – 19 Update for customers  

Our full assembly / packaging away service has been temporarily suspended during the crisis. Some items are excluded from this.

We want to assure our customers that our priority in these challenging times is the wellness of our customers and our team.

We have implemented additional hygiene measures to prevent and reduce the risk of exposure to the virus - 

Our delivery team have strict hygiene procedures in place including the use of bacterial wipes, wearing gloves and keeping a safe distance from the customer.  We are also happy to leave the items.

No signature required.

We are here to advise and go through you requirements anytime.   We may not be able to call you back as quickly as we would like.  If the matter is urgent please email.

Thank you for your continued trust and support



For deliveries to Zones 3 & 4 there will be a charge applicable - please contact us at the office so that we can calculate the cost using a Volumetric Weight and your Delivery Post Code 

(Please scroll down below to check your Postcode Zone)


Standard Delivery:

Jo Alexander are delivering 'in-stock' items within a *two week period. 


*Delivery of concrete furniture (Roma, Mira, Castra, Athena, Turin & Seville Ranges) - Whilst we aim to deliver the concrete furniture within the two week timeframe, this may extend to three weeks on occasion to enable us to group the deliveries geographically and so that we can provide our two-man delivery team for such heavy items.


For the Vincent Sheppard products in our 'Home' section, delivery will be 6 - 7 weeks from the date of order.


(Notes:  Do, let us know if you have any urgent delivery requirements (ie. for birthdays, parties etc.) and we will try and assist with this.  
If the goods are indicated as being un-available until a "due in date", then Jo Alexander will endeavour to deliver the furniture within ten working days of the "due date".

Delivery Notification Process:-

Please note that we use one of a number of delivery services to get your order to you safely;  either our own delivery team, a courier service (Parcel Force, DPD or UK Mail), or a Pallet Service.  

Jo Alexander Delivery Team - If we are sending our own delivery team, we will either phone you or send an e-mail to provide you with a date and three hour timeframe for the delivery.  If you are not likely to be at home when the delivery takes place, we are happy to take instruction on where the goods can be left for you, at your own risk (eg. with a neighbour, in a porch or behind the garage). If you need to leave us instructions, please don't hesitate to send us a quick e-mail. If you are unable to take delivery on the day we have scheduled, that's not a problem and we will get your delivery re-scheduled for the following week (or when our delivery team are next in your area).

We ask that all our customers understand that due to traffic, and other factors beyond our control, delivery times and days may be subject to change but we will aim to keep you notified of any such changes.


Courier Service - You will receive direct notification from the Courier service about the delivery date and time and you can alter arrangements and track parcels via their website link.

Pallet Services - A member of our team will contact you to discuss a convenient date for the pallet to arrive at your delivery address to ensure that someone will be there to sign for the items.  The Pallet Company do not, unfortunately, have the capacity to unpack or locate the furniture for you.

It is our aim to provide an efficient and helpful delivery service but we need your help as well by remembering the following points when ordering:


  • Please provide us with sufficient information so that you may be contacted easily (eg. most accessible telephone number - work or mobile).
  • Delivery is deemed as completed upon deliverance of the Goods at the agreed address/location. It is the Customer's responsibility to position the goods into the chosen part (of the garden) of the agreed address and whilst our Driver may be able to assist on occasions, this will be dependent on time and ability.
  • Most items will need some assembly (product pages will indicate where items are already pre-assembled). We do provide an assembly service (by prior arrangement) charged at the following rates:- Benches £10, Table Sets £19.00 - please call the office to find out more and to make payment for this.
  • We fully recycle all the cardboard packaging from our furniture. If you would like us to take any packaging away with us to dispose of please arrange this prior to your delivery for which as small charge of £10 is made.
  • In certain circumstances, (due to its weight), it may be necessary for more than one person to off-load furniture from the van. Where it is not possible for us to send more than one person (Note: there would also be delivery cost implications with this), Customer assistance may, therefore, be required. 
  • Make sure you inform us of any obstacles which may make the delivery of large furniture items difficult. (Examples include, narrow road/gate access, steps and tight angles).  If your new garden furniture has to be taken through the inside of your property to the garden location, please be aware that this is at your own risk and Jo Alexander holds no responsibility for loss or damage to property and fixings inside your home.
  • It is your responsibility to check the measurements of the furniture to ensure that it will fit into the desired location and/or elevators/lifts (weight and height). A delivery charge will be made if we are unable to deliver an order/item as a consequence of mis-measurement or if a re-delivery has to be arranged.
  • Are there any additional directions that will help the delivery driver to locate your property? If so, please notify us via e-mail. Thank you

Give us a call to see if we can turn it around before the stock items only (Note: In some circumstances there may be an increase in cost for this)
