Guaranteed Christmas delivery dates!
The Christmas rush is well and truly amongst us now. However, despite the record sales again this year for our cast iron radiators, the time and effort we have all put in here at The Cast Iron Radiator Centre at the beginning of the year in terms of better production/ordering systems along with improved resources, mean that our lead times remain at just 7-10 FULL working days from when order placed to despatch. That's nearly a whole week quicker than this time last year!
This combined with our quicker (standard 2 day) delivery service means that we are able to get more of your orders despatched than ever before and we mustn’t forget our great production team, who work tirelessly, to meet every deadline without compromising on great quality. As always though, during the busiest times, there may be the very occasional time when we need to extend the lead times in order to meet both demand and ensure our quality standards don’t fall.
Therefore, please use the following dates to assist you (and us!) when placing your orders with us to guarantee your pre-Christmas deliveries.
For Radiator Orders. To ensure that you receive your radiator order before Christmas, the last date for ordering is Friday 30th November 2018.
For Parcel Deliveries. To ensure that you receive your parcel order before Christmas, the last date for ordering is Wednesday 19th December 2018.
So, if your project is still going ahead between Christmas and the New Year, you will need to organise your delivery for before we break up for the festivities as there will be no deliveries during this period.

Record month for traditional radiator sales
After yet another record month for sales during September and as anticipated, we have had to slightly increase our lead time from when the order is placed to despatch/collection date to 7-10 FULL working days.
Please remember that these are our anticipated lead times and may need to be revised periodically without notice, but we will always do our utmost not to if we can.
From our experience, we know the lead times will extend slightly as the late rush starts with customers wanting our traditional cast iron radiators in time to keep them warm in the run up to Christmas, so please order as soon as you can so that you are not disappointed!
Transparency and honesty are the key principles here at the Cast Iron Radiator Centre, so please read the news feed for any updates and make sure you read the update and information emails when they are sent out.

The cold weather = more orders!
After such a wonderfully long and warm summer, it appears that the best of the weather is becoming increasingly in short supply.
At this time every year, for many, this is a reminder to get their heating systems checked and also look to replacing their radiators with our cast iron radiators in readiness for Christmas.
Subsequently, our order books are filling up fast and as such our current lead time is now increasing slightly to approximately 7-9 full working days to despatch or collection.
There a little good news though. Our new transport partner, Mobile PPL, offers our customers a standard delivery of just 2 working days normally, instead of the usual 3-5 working days offered by many other carriers. In addition, once your order has been despatched, Mobile also offer to upgrade the delivery service if required for a nominal fee paid direct to them. This extra flexibility is proving a real hit with our customers.
In order to not be disappointed, please speak to your plumber/builder (not always possible we know!) as soon as possible to try and plan when you need your radiators so that we can assist in getting them ready for you in good time.
We will, of course, endeavour to keep these lead times as short as possible for as long as possible, but to ensure that we don’t compromise the quality in producing your fabulous traditional radiators remains our highest priority, our lead times may need to be revised.
Make sure you keep an eye on this news feed so that we can keep you up to date. Transparency and honesty are the key principles here at the Cast Iron Radiator Centre.

New thermostatic valves just in!
We are delighted to offer the brand new Warwick TRV Thermostatic Cast Iron Radiator Valves on our website.
Having listened to our customers who wanted a larger valve with a solid wood wheel head, but not at extortionate prices, we have managed to source this new style in the popular Antique Brass, Black Nickel & Satin Nickel finishes.
Their style really adds that finishing touch when matched with our traditional cast iron radiators.
These are similar to the Bentley range, but differ in a few subtle, but significant ways.
Namely they are a lot heavier at 1.1kg a pair, they will fully shut off when the wheel head is fully wound in, so not requiring a decorator’s cap and the actual wheel head is made from solid wood.
They all come with a 2 year warranty as standard.
These additions broaden our range of excellent value cast iron radiator valves, whilst at the same time complementing the choice we now offer.
We are sure you are going to love them!

The House that Black Built!

Who said black is the new black? Well, the wonderful Chelsea Stonier is a definite convert looking at her great insta account journey showing the renovation of her Victorian house.
Our Art Nouveau decorative cast iron radiators seem to have fitted in well in their matt black topcoat finish.
If you are looking for some seriously style ideas for your property, then @thehousethatblackbuilt is a great starting point we think.

Summer's here, so please make the most of it!
Now that we have all started to see temperatures rising and even a few days of sunshine, you would think that the last thing people are thinking about is their heating.
Not here at The Cast Iron Radiator Centre! Our order books remain strong for our cast iron radiators and we continue to be extremely busy getting our customers' traditional cast iron radiators orders ready. This picture just shows some of our cast radiators which are curing waiting to be wrapped and despatched today, with lots more to follow.
However, those in the know realise that the summertime is the best time to look to change or update your radiators. Why? Well obviously, whilst the milder weather is with us, the need to use your heating is reduced dramatically, so if you need to be without it for a day or even a few days, it’s all manageable and you won’t get too chilly!
If you wait to the autumn or winter months, then even a day sometimes without heating can make a dramatic difference to not only keeping your home cosy, but also your general mood. There’s no real fun in being cold inside now is there?
We know that some of you won’t have a choice as the work to be done will be dictated by the overall timings of your project or just simply finances, but if you can, start planning now to get the work done. You might even find it easier to book a plumber than if you try in the depths of November or December, though they always appear busy when you call we know.
