Dispatch & Delivery
11. I've placed my order, when will I get a confirmation of delivery?
You'll receive an email confirmation as receipt of your order straight after purchase.
Many smaller items ordered before 1pm and held in stock will be despatched the same day for next day delivery, in this case you will also receive a despatch notification on the day of purchase. Orders after 1pm will usually be sent the following day and confirmed with a despatch notification email. For weekend transactions, smaller items would be sent on Monday (excluding Bank Holidays).
For larger items requiring us to book a delivery appointment with you, a member of our Sales Team will be in contact within 24 hours (excluding weekends) and you'll be given stock availability with an expected delivery date.
12. How will my appliances be delivered?
All items are first inspected for any imperfections and additional packaging added for transit protection. Smaller items will be sent via a UK national courier by recorded delivery, and larger items be sent via our own carrier service. Your new appliances will be placed in a room of your choice and enough time given for you to inspect all items for complete peace of mind.
If the premises have restricted access or flights of stairs, this must be noted at the time of ordering. If the delivery has to be aborted due to limited access or misleading information having been given, then a fee will be applied to cover the cost of further attempts.
13. How much do you charge for delivery?
All orders with a value over £30 include FREE delivery (remote area delivery charges may be applied, please see below). Please note: there are costs associated with the delivery process, and should delivery fail due to customers not being present during the organised delivery appointment, or for other customer or site-related reasons (i.e. access problems), then a fee of up to £80 may be applied to cover the cost of further attempts.
