Click & Collect, Shop & Drop, Local and National Delivery

At S. Collins & Son we appreciate that our customers all shop differently due to their different lifestyles. As such, we have created many different ways that customers can shop with us and how they in-turn then receive their goods.

We of course are delighted if customers wish to shop directly with us and can do so at our shop in Muirhead and also at our site which is located in the Scotmid Superstore in Uddingston. We have an excellent range of products in both locations, so in most instances we are able to meet the needs of our customers.

We offer Click & Collect, Shop & Drop, Local or National Delivery shopping options (to any UK mainland postcodes), where our local deliveries are carried out by our own staff in our fleet of refrigerated vans and the national deliveries are carried out by a recognised national courier.

Click & Collect

Some of our customers like to know in advance that the products they want, are put aside for them, ready to be picked up at a time that is convenient to them. To this end, customers can choose the click & collect option when shopping with us, which allows them to specify which products they want and when they wish to collect them.

Customers can if they wish, choose any date that is up to 28 days in advance of when they place their order, which is ideal if they are looking for products for a specific purpose like a family gathering or a special anniversary meal for example.

The Click & Collect option can be provided through our website, where customers select the products they want, populate their online basket and then choose the ‘click & collect’ option when they reach the online checkout. This will allow them to put in a date of their choosing.

The Click & Collect option is also ideal if you want some specific products and want to check in advance that these products are available. We can in certain circumstances also take customer orders over the phone, this may be a preferred choice of a customer who is not confident using computers. Simply call us on 0141 779 2028 and one of our team members will be only too happy to take your order.

For specialist products or orders that are large, it is always advised to shop this way, if coming to the shop in person, as it ensures that your products will be ready for you when you come to collect them. We would suggest allowing for 24hrs in such cases for us to ensure we have the products you require.

You can also arrange delivery to your workplace, or to a neighbour or friend if it’s more convenient, at no extra charge. Just select ‘Deliver to a different address’ in the online checkout. A Saturday and Sunday delivery is available with a surcharge of £6.

Packed With Award Winning Care

We put a great deal of care and attention into making sure our products are perfect, that’s why we put the same care into ensuring they get to our customers in a perfect condition. Your local or national order should reach you in the same condition as if you had bought it in person in our shop, no matter where you live.

Our products are all packed in wax paper or sealed trays, ensuring maximum freshness. Meat products are packed in a thick-walled recyclable cool box and surrounded by ice packs to keep them at the optimum temperature during transit.

Meat Storage Guidelines

Follow these handy tips to ensure that you get the best from your S. Collins & Son meat products:

  • Refrigerate your meat immediately on delivery and use within 3 days of receiving your delivery
  • Unless vacuum-packed, remove your meat from any bag and wrapping as if it is left inside, the meat will sweat, meaning that bacteria growth is much easier
  • Place the meat on a plate and leave uncovered at the bottom of your fridge. Not only does this help the air ventilate around the raw meat, but you’ll find that the bottom of the fridge is the coldest place. If you’re running out of space, a Tupperware container with the lid on is the next best thing. If your products are vacuum-packed then leave them within the packaging.
  • Keep meat, particularly chicken, away from any other food. It’s best to give yourself a whole shelf in the fridge just to store raw meat
  • Don’t overfill your fridge, as this can lead to inconsistent temperatures
  • If you’re going to freeze the meat, do it on the day of purchase. Most of our products are suitable for home freezing (individual product suitability & details are available on our website)
  • If your cuts are vacuum packed, do not open them as this is an ideal condition for freezing. If the meat is in butcher’s wrapping paper, remove all packaging, pat the meat dry and place each cut separately within a bag with as little air as possible. Use within 3 months
  • To defrost, remove the meat from the freezer 24 hours before use, and take out, placing in the coldest part of your kitchen 1-2 hours before use.
