Delivery of goods 

We will deliver your goods to the address specified by you when you placed your order. 

If no one is available to take delivery, we will follow the delivery instructions you provided to us or in the absence of instructions leave it in a specified safe location, deliver it to a neighbour or nearby business, or reattempt delivery. If a further delivery attempt is unsuccessful OR we are unable to follow your delivery instructions, we will notify you by email, cancel your order and refund you the price of the goods (but not the delivery charge). 

Please examine the goods as soon as reasonably possible after delivery and notify us of any fault or damage as soon as reasonably possible. 

Once your order has been delivered to your address or elsewhere in accordance with the delivery instructions you provided to us, the risk in the goods passes to you and the goods are classed as having been ‘delivered’. This means that you are responsible for the goods and we are not liable to you if the goods are stolen or damaged after they have been delivered to you. This does not affect your legal rights if the goods are faulty or misdescribed. Ownership of the goods passes to you once you have paid for them in full.

However, we are not liable to you for any losses you incur if delivery is delayed because of circumstances beyond our reasonable control (for example, severe weather, accidents or unpredictable traffic delays). 

Where a delay is caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control, we will usually try to start or restart the services as soon as the issue causing the delay has been resolved. If the services are delayed by more than 15 business days, we will email you to let you know and offer you the option to either continue waiting until the issue has been resolved (if this is possible) or to cancel your order and get a full refund OR refund of any advance payments made by you for any product or services that have not yet been provided. 

We are not liable to you for any losses you incur where the services are delayed or cannot be performed because you fail to make the location available to us, fail to prepare the location as required for us to provide the services, or fail to provide us with adequate instructions or information to allow us to perform the services.
