We aim to deliver goods to you within 3-5 working days (in the UK and where possible internationally) but we cannot give an exact delivery date. An Estimated delivery date will be included in your shipping confirmation and where possible a tracking number will be provided in the same email.
If we are unable to deliver the goods within 30 days of receiving your order, we will inform you, then if you wish, you may cancel the contract and we will refund any money paid by you.
All goods will be delivered via recorded delivery using Royal Mail or by our preferred shipping partner, APC.
Please see additional information contained within our ‘Returns Policy’ which forms an additional part of these ‘Shipping Policies’.
You can return all goods and receive a refund, if you do so within 7 working days from the date of delivery. All items must be returned with a Returns Authorisation Number (RAN), details of how to obtain a RAN are contained below. Delivery costs are not refunded unless the goods are found to be faulty.
Please note that the goods must be returned in their original condition and with all packaging and tags etc. intact. We request that all goods are returned within 7 working days of the date of your request for a Returns Authorisation Number. If the goods delivered are faulty or have been damaged in transit, then we will either exchange the goods free of charge, or give you a full refund including delivery costs, providing the goods are returned to us within 7 working days from the date of delivery.
