Barn owls are suffering - they have fewer places to nest than ever before and existing nests never last any decent length of time to enable them to continually return. This new and innovative ECO Barn Owl Nest box, however, fixes that problem. Made with a design that has been based on the existing Barn owl Nest box in Collaboration with the Barn Owl trust - but the material is all recycled plastic. This gives the box incredible strength and also a long lasting life, perfect for Barn owls to return to as often as they like.
The only element of this nest box which is wooden, is the floor. It had to be retained as wood to ensure it can dry naturally and not hold water. It requires no maintenance at all and can be installed into a tree or barn wall from the box. The Barn Owl box never requires any painting and only annual cleaning which a guide to do so is included in the box.
It is important that Barn Owls which are nesting feel safe and secure - this nest box ticks those boxes and provides a warm safe environment for them to nest and roost.
The Nest box is tastefully coloured in black and green that allows it to blend in to most environments nicely. Not only will the owls be safe and able to breed, you have the lovely pleasure of being able to see them teach their young and potentially watch them fledge the nest as they try to fly which is a real treat for any child or adult.
many features are incorporated into this barn owl box -
A front porch with exercise area and safety plinth Strong fixing points Wide pop hole for entry Integrated side access hatch for cleaning the nest box Front platform and roof are both textured to help with grip - in particular for the young The entrance hole has been designed to be the correct height to ensure the young cannot get out until they are able Good ventilation is incorporated into the design
A real worth while investment to ensure you have a home for any Barn Owls local to you

Easier to put up than a traditional box.

It is important that you notify us of any potential issues for the delivery driver such as narrow or unadopted roads, restricted access, etc. A delivery vehicle can be as large as a furniture removals lorry however if we are aware of any issues, we may be able to overcome these by using a smaller, 7.5 tonne vehicle, similar in size to a refuge lorry. If the delivery cannot be made, a charge may be levied for a failed delivery.
If you have not heard from us within 24 hours of placing your order, please telephone our Customer Services team on 01522 704505. We cannot dispatch the pallet without pre arrangement.

Regrettably, we are unable to provide you with a time slot. Deliveries are usually made between 9am and 5pm on the scheduled day. We will ask the driver to call you when he is an hour away, however this is not guaranteed and is down to the driver.
6. Do I have to be in for the item to be delivered?
Yes, it is extremely important that you are present to receive your item as you will need to check it for any damage.
It is guaranteed against damage in transit so if there is any sign of damage at all, please record this on the drivers paperwork, making it clear to the driver. In this situation, you must obtain a countersignature from the driver on the copy of the delivery note. When notification of any damage is received at this office, we will then arrange an immediate spare part or replacement.
Any goods marked as "unchecked" will be deemed to have been received in good order. There are some products which cannot be completely checked at the point of delivery and we accept that, however, please notify us within 24hrs of the delivery if you identify damage components after removing the packaging.
If there is no-one available to accept delivery, the goods will be returned to the local distribution centre and an additional re-delivery charge will be incurred.
7. Will the driver remove the packaging?
The driver is not responsible for unpacking the product or removing pallets and/or packaging materials.
8. Can the delivery driver put the item in my garage/garden/shed?
We regret that deliveries are what are known as kerbside deliveries. The driver is not insured to park his vehicle on your drive and may only do so at his own discretion.
He/she will use a hydraulic hand trolley to move your item and place it as close to the final destination as possible. The trolley has small wheels and is unable to operate on soft surfaces such as grass, gravel, cobbles or over steps.
It is important that you have a hard, level surface for a successful delivery. If the delivery cannot be made, a charge may be levied for a failed delivery.
If you are unsure about your drive or delivery point – please call us on 01522 704505 and we can discuss it with you.
9. Is installation included?
No, installation is not included, this is your responsibility.
Ovens weigh between 225kg and 670kg, whilst masonry BBQs can weigh over a tonne. Most ovens are delivered in one piece, unless stated, whilst the BBQs can be in separate parts.
Given the weights involved we would suggest between two and four people will be necessary. Some heavier items have anchor points making them suitable for hoisting (if you are unsure, please call our Customer Services team on 01522 704505). It is possible to hire hoisting equipment but you should check with any hire company that the lifting capacity is appropriate.
