Akers of Lawn are happy to now offer a pick up option from our Lonsdale premises!
All lawn varieties found on our Natural Lawn page are available for pick up order, but are dependent on turf farm availability.
PICK UP TIMES: Fridays 12 – 4:30, Saturdays 10 – 1
Turf ordered for pick up from our Lonsdale office warehouse will incur a service fee of $0.50 p/m2.
Pick up orders will only be made once a minimum amount of 30m2 has been met for an individual turf farm. This can be made up of multiple smaller orders and include different turf types.
If your order is under 50m2 we will pay the fuel levy and delivery cost. If your order is over 50m2 you will be charged the fuel levy, but we will pay the delivery cost.
Turf must be ordered and paid for by 3pm Wednesdays.
To order please call us on 8325 3266 to let us know:
- Which lawn type you are after
- How many m2
- When you want it by
- To make a payment (payment must be made before we can proceed with your order, and can be done via credit card over the phone, or with cash/card in our Lonsdale office.)
Turf will be in the warehouse adjacent to our Lonsdale office, please come in to see us first. Pick up turf is customer hand load only. If your vehicle can allow for a pallet, please let us know prior and we will see if we can arrange to forklift it for you. We cannot guarantee this for every order as we will be unable to forklift your turf if there are multiple orders on the same pallet.
If we are unable to complete your order for any reason, we can keep your details on file for contact when next available for re-order. If you are after a small amount of turf that we do not currently have and would like to be put on our next available list, please call our office and let us know.
Occasionally small amounts of turf are available from over-ordering for jobs (at no extra cost to the customer). This turf is still fresh and handled as little as possible. It is stored in our office warehouse and is available for collection during business hours. Please contact our office to enquire on amounts, varieties, and price.
Please note that turf can be quite heavy. Check the weight allowance details below for what vehicles/transport will be required for turf you are after.
- Each slab of 0.5m² turf weighs approximately 10kg
- Therefore, each m2 of turf weighs approximately 10kg to 20kg (variance due to moisture in turf)
- The difference per square metre from dry to wet can be up to 10kg
- All allowances below are based on heavy, wet turf
- Weight allowances include driver/passengers and contents in vehicle, therefore car is based on one driver only in the below table. If there is more than one passenger, use the total weight column to consider reasonable additional weight allowance
- When transporting orders greater than 30m² a tandem trailer with brakes is required, or a 1 tonne ute. Always ensure trailer regulations are adhered to.
