Our products & services
What products would you recommend for a particularly small garden?
We think it’s important to get kids active and if you are lucky enough to have a garden or even just a small space, we have lots of experience and expertise in helping families choose the best possible play equipment for their space and their budget. Not only that but we specialise in a wide range of trampoline sizes to suit your space as well as modular climbing frames allowing you to leave off or replace a bulkier item, for example.
If you just don’t have space for a climbing frame then a playhouse is a great option. They have the smallest footprint of all outdoor play equipment and provide lots of fun for your children and their friends.
PLEASE NOTE: Dimensions stated for play equipment such as Swing Sets and Climbing Frames are for the footprint of the product at its largest not the size of individual components, this is done to help you can work out how much space they will take up in your garden while planning your purchase. For example a swing with a footprint of 4M will have a top bar of around 3.6M as the legs of swing sets are angled outwards both width and length ways for stability.
Let us help your imagination run riot – our products come in all shapes and sizes! For advice, please give us a bell or email your enquiry. Click here for our contact details.
Do your prices include VAT and what is your procedure for organisations that are exempt from paying VAT?
Yes, all our prices include VAT where applicable. Organisations exempted from paying VAT are advised to order their goods and pay the VAT and then should make their own arrangements to claim it back. We are unable to deduct it for you
Do you offer assembly and a Trampoline installation service?
The products we offer assembly and installation on will have the price on their product page as well as an option to select the service. Please Note: The service we provide is to assemble the product only, if you have purchased anchors fitting these are not part of the assembly service.
Our larger items are deliverd flat packed with a full set of straight forward assembly instructions if you wish to assemble it yourself. You can call our experts for more details on the assembly and installation service we offer, or if you decide on self-assembly for advice in putting it all together, on 01691 888924.
What is PDI?
PDI stands for Pre-Delivery Inspection and involves the item being built by one of our skilled technicians, checked over to make sure it is in full working order and repackaged for delivery.
Though we will make every effort to get your order to you as quickly as possible the PDI process means that Next Day Delivery is not possible for these orders, if Next Day Delivery is selected at checkout the charge will be refunded. Please note that at busy times PDI orders can take up to 5 extra working days to dispatch.
When you receive an order that has been PDI’d we suggest you check it over as you would any item that has been delivered by courier. We make every effort to ensure that your item reaches you in the condition it leaves our warehouse but on rare occasions items may receive damage in transit that we have no control over. In the unlikely event of this happening you should contact us straight away and we will make every effort to rectify the problem as quickly as possible.
Though the item will be built and fully tested by our technicians before being sent there are certain requirements by law that we must adhere to in order to transport items of this nature, meaning there may still be a couple of simple steps you will have to complete. For example, fuses or batteries may have to be reconnected as electrical items cannot be transported with a power source connected. If you have any questions or need advice on receipt of your order customer service will be happy to help.
Once you have received a PDI’d item it is covered by the terms and conditions as stated in the Delivery and Returns section of the website and any issues that may result over time are covered by the individual items warranty, please see the Terms and Conditions as well as the FAQ sections of the website for more information. Please note that PDI does not increase or enhance the warranty of the product and in the event of an issue being reported to ourselves we will follow our set warranty procedures, which may involve sending out parts that the customer would need to fit in order to fix a problem.
PLEASE NOTE: Assembly is a non refundable service, meaning that once it has been selected you will not be entitled to a refunded even if the item is returned.
Please remember: Even though the item is assembled and tested before delivery it is still your responsibly to ensure that the item is fit for use. You should check all parts including screws, bolts etc to make sure that they are tight and secure before each use including the initial use as parts can come loose during transportation or use. Outdoortoys takes no responsibility for any injury or damage that may result from using a product that has been assembled by our Assembly Service (PDI) service.
How does the Trampoline Home Installation Service work?
Outdoortoys.co.uk offers a professional home installation service for many of our Trampolines. Our home installation service offers quick, efficient assembly to ensure that your trampoline is built correctly and without any headaches giving you peace of mind and an afternoon off!
Our Installation service is easy to arrange, simply add Installation from the dropdown on your chosen trampoline’s product page before adding the trampoline to your basket. You will be contacted within 14 days of placing your order by a member of our installation team to make arrangements and to inform you of when installation will be taking place.
Though we do everything in our power to make this process as quick and easy as possible we cannot be held responsible for any unexpected delays in delivery, including damage in transit, missing or lost boxes or any other problems that could lead to issues for the installation team.
Preparing your garden for your new Trampoline or Swing Set
Trampolines and Swing sets are designed to only be erected on flat level ground to avoid the risk of injury or damage to the product, we also recommend that there should be a 2m safety perimeter around the trampoline or swing set for safety reasons and this should be taken into consideration when choosing where the play equipment will be build and before ordering
Some of our items such as Inground Trampolines or Swing sets require ground work. Our customer service are more than happy to offer advice on the amount of work required and we strongly suggest calling to discuss any queries you may have before ordering.
However we do not advise starting any ground work before you have received your item and can review the manufactures instructions for yourself, we stock many varied products as part of different product ranges, all with different requirements and as such the instructions for each will differ and our customer service team are only able to give general advice on the product ranges. Also items are updated from time to time by the manufacturer and even though we try to keep our website as up to date as possible there are times when the information on the website may differ slightly from that in the manufacturer’s instructions.
We cannot be held responsible for any costs you may incur for ground work that you have undertaken in order to fit your trampoline or swing set in cases where any information is incorrect on our website, the product has been updated by the manufacturer, delivery of your item is late or we have to cancel your order due to no stock.

What does it mean when an item is on Pre-order?
Instead of the green ADD TO BASKET button sometimes there may be a blue PRE-ORDER NOW button instead (sometimes the button will still say ADD TO BASKET, but the back in stock date will be clearly stated in the description), this means that though we do not have the item in stock at present we are expecting it in our warehouse soon, by purchasing an item on Pre-order you will pay for the item at the time you place the order so that the item will be reserved for you and we will then dispatch it as soon as it arrives with us.
There will also be an In Stock/Back In Stock date, this is the date we expect the item to arrive in our warehouse ready for us to ship.
PLEASE NOTE: This is an estimated date, meaning the item may arrive earlier or on rare occasions later than the stated date, in these circumstances we try to notify all our customers as soon as we are made aware of any delays. Delays may happen for a variety of reasons outside of our control and the In Stock date is only provided as a guide, if you require an item to arrive by a specific date we advise you contact customer service before placing your order.

PRODUCT SPECIFIC PARTS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY
For Ride-on’s Battery and Petrol (where applicable):
Chains & Belts
Fairings and bodywork (unless damaged during delivery. Photos required within 24 hours of receipt)
Tyres, Wheels, valves and Inner Tubes
RiIDE-ON WARRANTY: For a more detailed description of the Ride-on toy Warranty please see Terms and Conditions
TRAMPOLINE WARRANTY: Your Trampoline warranty does not cover you for any damage caused by adverse weather conditions. We suggest that in the event of adverse weather such as strong winds that the trampoline be dismantled and stored securely. We also do not offer any guarantee that anchoring your trampoline with items such as our Universal Anchor Fixing Kits will protect your trampoline from adverse weather conditions.
WOODEN SWING WARRANTY: Our wooden swing sets are constructed from timber which is a natural product and may be effected by the environment and weather conditions they are exposed to much more than a man-made product would be.
Cracks may appear in the surface of the wood which is perfectly natural for timber particularly in the summer, this does not affect the structural integrity of the timber or the swing set. These cracks are rarely a sign of a defect but simply the timber adapting to the fluctuations in the atmosphere and humidity of its environment. Cracks may also expand and contract depending on the environmental conditions this is also perfectly natural
Cracks in timber are NOT A WARRANTY ISSUE as there is no way to prevent timber from cracking because it is a perfectly natural process and does not affect the overall stregth of the timber, if you wish you can apply an additional wood treatment that may help but will not prevent cracks appearing in the timber altogether.
