We strongly advise that you position your radiators before installing your pipe work. The Company will not be liable for any damage or losses incurred by the purchaser or their representatives for installation of pipe work prior to the goods being placed in situ. Radiators will be supplied bushed with ½” bottom pipe bushes.
Also, we purposely source our radiators that are not completely smooth, but with acceptable casting characteristics & blemishes to give an authentic aged look.

We will always endeavour to ensure that our descriptions & photos are up to date & as accurate as possible.

For traditional 4 column radiators this will be 23 sections; however, for patterned ornate and radiators, this will be between 12-17 sections depending on style & heights.
Painting & Finishes – Our radiators will be supplied in a cellulose based black primer as coating ready to be painted or one of our top coat finishes is selected & and paid for. We recommend that primed radiators are painted with an appropriate top coat (2-3 coats will suffice). For painted goods, the Company gives no guarantee that the colour will accord precisely with the advertised colour. Please note that colours presented online will vary between different computers and monitors and that printed colours may vary slightly from the actual paint colour and are representative only. Top coated colours will 'dull down' over time through use & heat.
Our descriptions for our period door knobs & hand forged ironmongery are accurate when listed, however, as with all hand finished products, there will be slight variations in colour finish to our products & the Company will not be held liable for this.
Powder Coating – We recommend that our radiators are not Powder Coated in order to ensure protection of all gaskets/seals If radiators are Powder Coated post sale, this will invalidate any guarantee offered.

Shipping/Pallet Conditions of Service
Radiators - Unless collected, radiator orders will be shipped by our delivery partner Mobile People Powered Logistics Ltd (Mobile PPL) using a max 7.5t curtain side lorry with tail lift. You will be notified of despatch via email and SMS text using the details you have provided at checkout and delivery is booked an a standard 2 working day service (weekday and all day slot) unless requested otherwise. (See further details below)
Please read Delivery Details page under the 'Help' tab at the top of the page. Please note that some remote areas will require an extended delivery lead time of up to approx 7 - 10 working days following despatch.
ALL pallet services are to kerb side only and Mobile PPL are not able to accept ‘part’ receipt of deliveries and returns without prior arrangement and notification directly with Cast Iron radiator Centre.
Mobile PPL and all Partner Depots, remain responsible for the safe arrival of your goods to the kerbside and we work together to ensure that all deliveries are carried out in appropriate manner. In the unfortunate event that there are notable damages to the pallet, please call Mobile PPL directly on 0121 624 8181 and they will handle any issues and are able to initiate the claim’s process for any damaged goods.
Please be aware that in the unfortunate instance where damage has occurred to your property, please contact Mobile PPL on 0121 624 8181 directly. The Cast Iron Radiator Company is not directly responsible in any way, nor in a position to intervene or reimburse you for any subsequent losses.
Any claim to your property or surroundings is classed as a Public Liability Claim and will be managed by Mobile PPL. There may be instances when you are asked to communicate directly with the local delivery partner that was responsible for this incident. This is in order that Mobile PPL are able to process any claim for damages accordingly.
Upon delivery, it is the customers responsibility to inspect the packaging and raise any concerns, where possible, at the time of delivery. The driver will be able to make notes and will ask you to sign to say you have received your goods. This is referred to as the ‘POD/Proof of Delivery’ the driver carries an electronic device to capture photographic evidence of the condition of the goods and make relevant notes at point of delivery. It may also be useful, if you are able to capture photographic evidence on a personal mobile device, for your own personal reassurance, in the event of any subsequent claim. Failure to do so will result is the Cast Iron Radiator Centre being unable to assist further without the necessary proof or information supplied.
We must stress that a Pallet Delivery Service is always, kerbside only. The haulage company is under no obligation to remove items from the pallet and the drivers are not insured to assist you with any aspect of moving the goods from the kerbside. This is to remove any potential risk of personal injury or damage to your goods, or your property. We remind you that it is not in your interest to encourage a driver to assist you in any way that falls outside of his responsibility. If, in the event the driver does agree to assist you, we assume you accept full responsibility for any subsequent damage to any person, or property and by doing so you will void any right to make a subsequent Insurance claim.
The Purchaser must warn the Company if there is restricted access, soft or gravelled driveways. The minimum size vehicle used for pallet deliveries is a 7.5t lorry, but some orders are delivered using 18t lorries. Please ensure you request in the message box at checkout, if you require a 7.5t lorry for access
Please ensure you have required manpower to move the delivery to a safe area. Should the Company not be notified in advance of any restrictions in delivery access, or should the Purchaser or their representatives not be present to sign for the goods, the Company reserves the right to charge a re-delivery fee should re-delivery be necessary. Upgraded services e.g. Next Day delivery, timed delivery slots, A.M. or P.M. & Saturday deliveries, if available by your local depot, can be arranged for an additional charge to be paid direct to Mobile PPL upon request. This will still be a kerb side only or nearest hard standing, service.
