We use a variety of delivery methods, depending on the size of the item you order and the speed with which you wish to receive it. Some items are delivered directly by the supplier and the supplier will contact you to arrange delivery.
We aim to deliver the majority of your larger sized items that we have to you within 14 working days for most UK postcodes. On certain items there is a longer lead time which is up to 30 days unless other time period specified. For orders that are delivered direct to you by our suppliers, after placing your order they will contact you to arrange a delivery date that is convenient to you.
A signature may sometimes be required at delivery. By placing an order you are authorising us to accept a signature from an adult at the delivery address or neighbouring property on your behalf should you not be available at the time of delivery.
For some products that do not require a signature at delivery you may be able to give instructions explaining if and where you would like the product to be left if no one is present at the time of delivery, such as with a neighbour.
Ownership of a product will not pass to you until we have delivered the product to you (either directly, or by leaving it in a safe place or with a neighbour or where you have signed for it when using the In Store Collection option). This is when the contract between you and us will be deemed to have concluded. Â Once a product is delivered, responsibility for risk of damage to or loss of the product passes to you.
We also use third party delivery companies which may, at their discretion, leave a product in a safe place if no one is present at the time of delivery. In these circumstances the delivery company will put a card through your letter box explaining where the product has been left.
