Please note if an order is high value then we may send on a service which does require a signature regardless of whether you give instructions.
If a due date is shown on a product, is it a certainty?
As we ship our products directly from the manufacturers, all of our due dates are approximates and subject to a number of possible shipping/customs delays. We endeavour to fulfil orders as soon as possible, but regrettably may not always be able to keep you updated with changes to due dates due to volume of orders.
Please make sure that if you choose to pre-order an item that you do so on the understanding that you will be charged when you place the order - and the due date is approximate.

Please email us at email@example.com stating your order number, the problem with the product, and whether you would like a refund or a replacement, and we will advise you of further action. It is helpful in the case of damaged products if the customer is able to send a picture showing the fault.
Please ensure that you understand when placing an order, that if something is wrong and you need to return it then our courier does not offer timed or weekend collections, and someone needs to be in when the collection takes place.
