Delivery terms are subject to the terms set out in ‘stock’ (below)
The delivery charge is dependant on the weight of the order. You can see the applicable delivery charge by adding your products to your basket and then looking in the basket.
Delivery is usually made by FedEx, Royal Mail or Parcelforce. Unfortunately at this time we are unable to offer customers a choice of carrier. For our customers convenience we try and use Royal Mail for delivery of lightweight orders. The manufacturer may directly dispatch some items you; this is usually by a courier.
Please note that all deliveries will require a signature, and therefore cannot be left without one. Requests asking for orders to be left without a signature will be declined.
During the checkout process you can nominate neighbour(s) to receive your order in you absence (we will ask the delivery driver to do this but cannot guarantee it). We strongly advise against relying on this service for urgent orders We regret we are currently not able to pass on this request to Royal Mail.
If Nobody is Available
If nobody is available to sign for your delivery a card will be left. This card will contain a telephone number that you can call to arrange delivery on a more suitable working day (Monday-Friday). Please note there may be an extra charge for redelivery if the second delivery attempt fails. Alternately you can pick your delivery up at the local depot (often your local Post Office), the address will be printed on the card. It if no contact is made by the customer within 7 days the delivery will be automatically returned to us; we will then treat the delivery as a non-faulty return and refund you as per our non-faulty refund policy.
If delivery of your item is refused, it will automatically be refturned to us. We will then treat the delivery as a non-faulty return and refund you as per our non-faulty refund policy.
