This Shipping Policy should be read in conjunction with the Website Terms and Conditions
• Signed For. As set out in our T&C, all products ordered through the Website are sent to you using "signed for" Royal Mail Service from the UK.
• Tracking Number. Upon the fulfilment and posting of your order, you will receive notification to the email address provided by you when placing the order, of the Royal Mail reference number. This reference number will confirm when the package was received at the post office for shipping but it is not a tracking reference. It will advise when delivery has been attempted/made. Once the delivery has been made to the delivery address, the signature of the recipient will be visible to both you and us.
When placing your order on the Website, it is your responsibility to provide a secure delivery address. We do not take any responsibility for products that have been shipped, once they have been confirmed as delivered at the delivery address provided by you and at which point we have fulfilled our obligation to ensure delivery. We have no further responsibility to you and in the event of products going missing once signed for as being delivered, then that is a matter for you to sort out with the delivery location.
• Where the delivery address provided by you, is a multiple address, community hallway or place of work, our liability in respect of the delivery of the products, is simply to the delivery address. You must therefore be certain of the fact that the delivery destination is secure and that you are satisfied that when delivered, the products will reach you. We have no liability for items going astray in such locations.
• If the delivery is to a home address and there is no recipient present to sign for the delivery, then you will be provided with a delivery card, with details set out upon it to rearrange delivery. It is your responsibility to arrange for redelivery of the products or to collect the products from the delivery depot.
• CUSTOMS/IMPORT DUTIES
• For deliveries outside of the UK, any customs or import duties will be charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. Any such charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel and we have no control over the level of these charges.
• We do advise that prior to placing an order, that you may wish to contact your local customs office in order to establish what the potential charges may be.
