Delivery

We pride ourselves on the speed and quality of our delivery. We do everything possible to dispatch all orders placed before 2pm during Monday to Friday on the same day but this is not guaranteed and is not possible at very busy times and as a result of Covid-19.

COVID-19 UPDATE

We are still dispatching orders, however due to running a reduced staff level to allow our employees to maintain safe social distancing practices and to minimise risk to our employees and their families, we may be slower than usual to dispatch parcels.

We are therefore unable to guarantee dispatch and delivery times but please be assured we are working as hard as we can to dispatch orders as quickly and as safely as possible.

Likewise, there are significant impacts on our courier's ability to maintain their usual service levels. Although in most instances normal service is being met, there may be some disruption and we cannot guarantee delivery times / service at present.

Although we use the best UK couriers, delivery cannot be 100% guaranteed due to the impact on Covid-19, weather disruption and occasional problems with drivers on a local depot level. If your order has NOT been received within TWO WORKING DAYS please call 02380 814360 as soon as possible so we can track the order and help resolve the problem.

Please note that once your order has been placed, we are unable to make any changes to your order.

If you would like your order left in a safe place without a signature, please be sure to fill in the 'COMMENTS ABOUT YOUR ORDER' box during the checkout stages, clearly stating any instructions (in as few words as possible) where you would like your order left if no one is in. Please be aware that if an instruction is given to leave an order in a safe place without a signature, this will be done so entirely at your own risk and should the parcel go missing then we or our couriers cannot be held liable for the missing parcel. Please note that if the courier does not deem it completely safe to leave your order without a signature then they will not do so.

 

European Orders & Worldwide

For orders to be delivered outside of the United Kingdom, the website has a 'Shipping Estimator' prior to checkout that will generate an accurate carriage/shipping cost for the items you have placed in your online cart.

Returned goods are your responsibility until they are received by us. We strongly recommend obtaining proof of postage when sending items and please ensure the goods are packaged sufficiently well that they cannot get damaged during transit to us.

We will refund in full or replace items for exchange, but reserve the right to make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you, i.e. if the item is dirty or damaged and not fully resalable.

We will offer to return the item to you or withhold this value from the refund.

We will make reimbursements using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.

Goods becoming damaged in your opinion through defective materials, poor workmanship or during carriage should be notified as sson as possible and returned as soon as possible.
