Since this comapny changed their delivery service it has been abysmal. I will never use them again.

Response from Big K Products UK Limited:
Dear Mrs James,
We are truly sorry that your experience with Big K left such a bad impression.

I would, however, like to explain that due to an internal restructuring we are no longer able to deliver to residential customers via our London offices. We have chosen a dedicated courier service, which has proven to be very reliable. Unfortunately, we are bound to the H&S regulations of the haulage industry and for this reason we cannot offer a delivery service, which is not just delivering the goods to your door step, but also storing the goods in your dedicated storage place.

Our terms and conditions for deliveries are publized on our website.

We apologise for the inconvenience.
Your sincerely,
The Customer Care Team
Big K Products (UK) Ltd.

Since I first used Big K charcoal I have used nothing else due to the quality and price of the product. I have also got three friends now using Big K, they tried it now they are hooked.
Please keep producing this brilliant charcoal.
Thank you very much.

Great service and fast delivery. Delivery cost is a big on the high side. Would be happy with a slightly slower service for a more modest delivery fee.

We have used the red bags of charcoal for several years, and this winter upgraded to the restaurant grade, which is a revelation - a good mix, but the big pieces are sensational. We have just taken delivery of a small order of the bricquettes, partly a a late-season top-up and partly to evaluate for next winter.

Excellent products and service. My only regret is that it involves long road deliveries across the breadth of England and half Wales - which must impede the 'green' score.

Delivered large order to wrong address. No call to say delivery was on way. Fuel left at someone else's house "at my risk". Didn't feel customer services considered this to be a problem that they took seriously. As a customer of over 10 years, I've seen a worrying deterioration in the quality of service and my trust for this business.

Response from Big K Products UK Limited:
We are very sorry that the delivery did not meet our usually standard and apologize for any inconvenience that this incident caused. You should have received a phone call from the office to advise you that deliveries are being made through our distribution centre, which is using 3rd party hauliers. This cleary was an oversight on our part, which we apologize for and appropriate training was carried out to avoid this to happen again. You can be rest assured that we are taking this incident serious and have taken this up with the courier involved.

The fuel was not left at someone elses house at your risk, as the risk for leaving it without your signature lies with Big K and not with the customer. We also would have arranged collection from this place to your house, so that you would not have needed to carry the bags yourself.

Our customer service is well aware of the difficulties in arranging deliveries to residential homes, which can be seen in the very good rating over the years.

Good products, punctually delivered and reasonable priced. The delivery staff are friendly and helpful and will happily stack the wood for you or, if you are out, leave it where requested and cover with plastic to keep it dry. Recommended.

The service was very good and friendly. Only small problem was the delivery driver (also friendly and helpful) arrived unannounced although I was supposed to receive notification of delivery.

I have purchased and used Big K Lump Charcoal over many years and consider it by far the best charcoal to use for my barbecue.
Excellent service, prompt delivery and a first class product. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
