We will try to contact you in advance to arrange a courier delivery as a signature is required to receive the delivery. Repeated failure to meet a deliveries on pre-arranged days may result in extra delivery charge being made.
Smaller items may be sent with the post office, parcel companies or Airsure who will attempt delivery on a weekday without notice. Failed deliveries will be carded so that the customer has another opportunity to accept delivery or the parcel may be taken to a post office collection centre for you to sign and collect when convenient. We must wait 14 days from posting date if a parcel is deemed lost to comply with Royal Mail terms and conditions. After 14 days a replacement or refund can be arranged.
From the moment a carrier attempts to deliver the goods they are the customer’s responsibility and the customer has to accept the goods when they are ready to be delivered.
Where the Customer does not comply with our attempts to deliver the goods we may, at our discretion, cancel the entire or part of the order and charge the Customer for storage, shipping and insurance of the goods.
We do not offer an installation, unpacking or assembly service. The responsibility of unpacking and any assembly is with the customer.
