Having enjoyed our California’s awning over the last few years, and banished to the garden for eating with friends and family, we decided to invest in a patio awning, 4m wide and 2.5m reach.

It was due to arrive but delivery failed due to incorrect loading. Any ideas how an awning can be incorrectly loaded!?

No, but I’ve thought about buying one (a normal Cali one) for my balcony

4 metre length placed transversely and not longitudinally?
4 metre length placed vertically and not longitudinally?
1 metre placed on the truck and 3 metres overhanging?
At least it's not aboard the Ever Given.

”Incorrect loading”..... it was loaded before and now beneath the 4 pallets of bricks..... it’s bent.

That is what I fear.

My hope is that it was loaded onto the wrong truck and went to Lee-on-Sea instead of Lee-on-Quaggy.

More exciting than Line of Duty... and if you catch Gogglebox, then the notepad and pen are out trying to solve whodunnit, or whohasit / whereisit...
