We are sorry, but we do not currently ship to the Channel Islands.

Receiving and Signing for Your Goods
Please look for obvious parcel damage and if IN ANY DOUBT sign the paperwork as DAMAGED and do not accept the delivery. An email to advise refusal of delivery MUST be sent to email@example.com. within 24 hours of the refusal. This allows us time to raise a claim against the delivery company for the damage and to allow us to organise a replacement unit to be despatched to you for the damaged item.
If after receiving and opening the goods they are not in a satisfactory condition mark please report this to us ASAP by email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 hours of delivery. We may require photographic evidence of damaged goods in order to facilitate an exchange or refund.
If the item is received and accepted with a signature of proof of delivery, and we are not notified of any damage within 24 hours, we will be of the understanding that this is an acceptance that the item (s) arrived fit for purpose in perfect order. We will not be able to replace or refund for damage reported outside of this period.
If, for any reason, the courier was not able to deliver goods, a card will be left to notify the customer of a missed delivery. The courier will only attempt to re-deliver the goods twice. If the customer is still not available to receive the goods, they will be returned to us and the customer will be liable for any further re-delivery charges.
Please note; none of these services deliver on a weekend or Bank Holiday.
If you are unable, for whatever reason, to take delivery of your goods on the scheduled confirmed delivery day, please inform us by email to email@example.com as soon as possible.

Changes to Orders.
Please note any changes made to your order may have an impact on its delivery date and we may be unable to deliver your goods on the original confirmed delivery day, depending on the nature of the changes you request. If your order has already been despatched any charges incurred by us from the delivery company will need to be added to the order costs and payment made before the amended order is despatched.
You are responsible for providing a safe means of access from the public highway to the place of delivery. If our delivery staff consider that access is unsafe then we will not deliver the goods until safe access is provided. Any subsequent charges by the courier will be claimed back from the customer.
