1.7. Excepted for small and light parcels, all Goods must be signed for on delivery by an adult aged 18 years or over. If no one of that age is at the address when the delivery is attempted the Goods may be retained by the driver. When your Goods arrive, it is important that you check immediately the condition and quantity.

1.8. Signing "Unchecked", "Not Checked" or similar is not acceptable.
1.9. Goods are sent by post. We will send you a message by email to tell you when we have despatched your order.
1.10. No time given is to be treated as contractual. Delays mentioned on the website are informative. So we are not liable to you for any expense or inconvenience you incur on account of delayed delivery or non-delivery.
1.11. Some Goods will be delivered direct from the manufacturer who will contact you to arrange delivery. When delivery of the Goods has been arranged directly with the manufacturer, you will be subject to the manufacturer's delivery policy.
1.12. Some Goods are so large and heavy that delivery times may be slightly longer. In this case, approximate delivery dates will be given when you place your order.
1.13. Time for delivery specified on the order, if any, is an estimate only and time shall not be of the essence.
1.14. We are happy for you to pick up Goods from our shop/ warehouse provided you make an appointment in advance and payment has been received into our bank.
1.15. If you pick up Goods from our premises then:

1.16.1. This is an error from you in the transcription of your contact information, in this case the return will be at your expense, according to the rates applicable according to countries and world regions.
1.16.2. This is a fault of ours or an involuntary issue from you such as being absent to the address indicated for exceptional reasons, or that the delivery service has poorly contacted you for delivery the package. In these cases, we accept, after the return of the parcel, to send it again at our expense once only. If after that the package still comes back, then other returns will be at your expense regardless the reason for the non-receipt.
In the case of a second shipment we will ask you to verify that the address is complete and that someone can receive the parcel; if necessary we will ask you to provide a second address where reception chances are stronger.
