Some items are large and heavy. Please be prepared to assist delivery drivers with unloading if necessary. If ordering large or heavy items, please let us know if you are unable to assist with unloading.
All goods will need to be signed for. Should you arrange with the carrier to leave the goods with a neighbour or at the delivery address while you are out, we can accept no responsibility for loss or damage to these items.
If a carrier attempts to deliver to your address on our behalf and finds that no-one is available to receive it, we reserve the right to take a photograph of the outside of the property to assure you we were in the right geographical location to deliver your order, and to confirm that we had found the right address.
Should redelivery be required, the carriers will charge us for this and we will have to pass this charge on to you.
Please check goods carefully and indicate clearly if there is any sign of damage to the packaging.
Please check your goods straight away. If there is any damage to goods, please report this within 24 hours of receiving the items.

Missing, incomplete or damaged orders

Because of the nature of some of the products we sell it is often necessary to despatch an order using multiple carriers, as a result ordered items may arrive at different times.
Please allow a little extra time before contacting us.
Whilst we do our best to deliver goods to a scheduled time, we do not guarantee that delivery will take place on the day which we have said. Sometimes circumstances, often out of our control, such as bad weather or other transport issues can affect delivery schedules.

Before any refund is given we will inspect the returned goods to ensure that you have taken good care of them, including repacking them carefully before return. Taking due care can include, for example, not using the goods, or damaging their retail packaging beyond what is required to establish their nature, characteristic and function, as might be reasonably allowed in a High St shop. Where we consider that due care has not been taken, then we reserve the right to make a deduction for diminished value from any refund due.
Please note that refunds will not include any premium delivery charges incurred when your order was first sent to you or any costs of return incurred by you.
Any returns that include heavy parasol bases will need to be palletised. Please call if you would like a specific quote before you order. If we arrange collection, we will quote you on the costs before proceeding. The costs of collection will be treated as your costs of return and will be deducted from the price you first paid when calculating your refund. Normal delivery terms (see above) apply to goods sent out in exchange.
The right to cancel within 14 calendar days does NOT apply to orders delivered outside the EU or to trade orders (orders invoiced to businesses rather than the general public) or goods made to the customer’s specification.
