About Lakeland Steel
In 2015 we started life in a small barn in the Lake district near Hawkshead. We had a simple CNC Plasma machine, with 1 member of staff and some spray cans. The first product we launched was a 150mm drain cover, and the first one sold just a few hours after we first listed it on eBay which was vastly unexpected as the paint was not even dry on it by that point!
A lot has changed since then with our Factory in Millom, Cumbria and our state of the art Fiber laser machines and Powder coating setup. We have a great friendly team and we produce a variety of our own metal products. We achieve this on our fiber laser cutters, powder coating system and of course with our own hands finishing items and packing them. This results in the highest possible product quality as we're using the latest cutting and finishing systems, and our hand finishing touch gives us a view on our products throughout the process for quality control. We're so confident you'll love our product, that if you don't you can return it for up to 90 days for a full refund.
Frequently asked Questions
Q: How soon will my order arrive?
All orders are dispatched within 1 working day, and we ship Royal mail 1st class by default (Or a 24 hour courier if over 1Kg). While we can't guarantee the courier will deliver your item next day, this almost always is the case. If you require a guaranteed service please pick the special delivery shipping option.
Q: How do I install my metal bird?
Just tap it in to a tree or fence post gently. You may need to pre-drill a hole to help. And use a cloth or rubber mallet to protect our painted birds from damage while tapping it in.
Q: I don't like it now it's arrived.
That's a shame! It's not something we really hear with our birds. However, simply open a return on eBay and you can return it for a full refund or buy another one that you do like :)
Q: Will this kill my tree?
In short, no. As long as you pick a sensibly sized healthy tree there will be no issues installing our birds. If you're still worried then you can always install them on a fence or fence post too.
Q: Won't these scare of real birds?
No they won't, we've had plenty of photos sent in to us from customers with real birds getting to know our metal birds. Mostly as a handy perch! So far there have been no reports of any Magpies pinching them either thankfully:)
Q: Can I have a discount?
We do run sales from time to time, but do offer a Buy 2 get one free continuously. This will be applied automatically when you checkout by discounting all 3 items by a third.
Q: Can you make me a specific bird?
We do take requests for new birds. However, there may be a small delay before we launch it while it's designed and we produce stock.
Q: Will the raw steel (rusty) one just corrode away?
Eventually it will, but that is a long time away. Mild steel will lose around 0.5mm of thickness every 10 years. So your birds should still be happy with their rusty patina in 20-40 years time.
