Making A Purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, add products to your shopping cart and checkout and pay using one of our trusted payment providers (Realex Payments or PayPal)

Our secure trusted payment providers accept all major credit and debit card payments via our website.

When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.


You can cancel an order prior to the loading of your order onto our delivery vehicle and obtain a full refund of any pre-payment. Our terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights.

Shipping And Handling

Delivery will be by road haulier within Northern/Southern Ireland (**roadside delivery only). For overseas orders, please email to request a quotation.

Delivery is made by a lorry with tail gate. The pallet is transported on a pump pallet truck from the roadside to your driveway entrance. Due to the weight of the pallet they cannot be moved on gravel drives etc .- only on hard firm surfaces. Pallets over 1 ton weight and Railway Sleepers must be removed by mechanical means as supplied by the customer.

The driver is not responsible for handling the bags so please ensure that you have the labour available to do so.

If you can only be reached by sharp bends, narrow driveways etc. you must inform The Strata Group when ordering, as alternative arrangements may need to be made.

If the driver is unable to gain access to your property or site, then your crate(s) will be returned to the nearest depot where you will have to make other arrangements at your expense. Or by agreement set off at the nearest point of access to your property/site.

Reclaimed Railway Sleepers

All of our Reclaimed Railway Sleepers have been treated with creosote before 30th June 2003 and are suitable for placement on the second hand/reclaimed market for re-use. (Meeting Council Regulation EC 1013/2006)

Grade A – Agricultural Use

A Grade A railway sleeper is a used sleeper in good condition. It will have bolt holes where the tracks were attached to it and a small amount of damage or slight wane is acceptable. It is very sound, little or no rot and can be used for stacking, building retaining walls and many other uses.

Grade B – Agricultural Use

A Grade B railway sleeper is also a used sleeper with all the same characteristics of the Grade A above but can have more damage and perhaps an amount of rot.

New Railway Sleepers

As for the above but with the following additions:

Landscape Grade A - possibility of  splits at either end and possibly one waned edge.

Reclaimed Creosote Free Railway Sleepers

Grade A - Very sound, a minimal amount of loosening of the grain is allowable and minor splits.

Grade B - possibility of split ends and some damage to the sleeper, the grain will appear very loose around the edges and especially the ends, this is completely normal with tropical hardwood but the sleeper will be essentially sound although very rustic looking - please take this into account before ordering.
