Once dispatched, your goods should arrive within the timeframe of your selected delivery option. Please note, however, delivery times are given for guidance only and we are not responsible for delays caused by matters beyond our control.
Goods must be signed for at the delivery address, by you, or by your nominated representative who must be aged 18 or above (ID may be requested). Under no circumstances will goods be left unattended, or with anybody below the age of 18.
The goods will be deemed to have been delivered in accordance with our obligations if they are delivered to the specified address or a security area and a receipt is signed by someone at the said address or security area. Delivery will also occur if you collect the goods from our carrier and sign for them. The said signatures will be conclusive evidence of delivery for the purpose of the contract. Please note that for security reasons, certain education establishments restrict the area on campus that multi-drop carriers are allowed to enter.
If, in the unfortunate situation no one is available to accept and sign for your delivery, please contact us at your earliest convenience to arrange an alternative delivery time. A re-delivery fee will be charged. If you have not contacted us to rearrange a failed delivery within 24 hours, the order will be cancelled and the cost of your order (excluding the cost of perishable items and the delivery charge) will be refunded to you.

You are also entitled to cancel from the moment you place your order until 14 days from the day on which you receive the goods or services. Notice of such cancellation must be given in writing to us by email in which you should let us know the order ID and delivery date.

The refund will include the basic delivery cost of getting the goods to you in the first place (except for the supplementary costs arising if you choose a type of delivery other than our standard and least expensive method of delivery). You will bear the cost of returning the goods to us.
Please note that your right to return products does not apply to goods made to your specification, that have been clearly personalised, and perishable items such as fresh food, frozen & chilled food.
If you wish to exercise your right of cancellation, you are obliged to retain possession of the goods and take reasonable care of them. We may make a deduction from the refund for loss in value of any goods returned, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.

We reserve the right to cancel an order if we have not received payment.

We are happy to replace them with equivalent substitutions or issue a full refund to you. Please contact us for instructions on how to return the goods as in this case we will meet the cost of return postage, though only if this is arranged through our authorised carriers.
