DELIVERY INFORMATION

Estimated delivery times are quoted on the product pages for each item. We shall make every effort to fulfil your order by the estimated delivery date provided. However, in rare cases, circumstances beyond our control may prevent us doing so. We will advise you of any delays and do our best to deliver your order as quickly as possible.

Delivery dates do not form any part of the contract with us and no compensation will be offered for late deliveries in any event. If your item has not been dispatched and delivered within 30 days from the date of purchase, you may exercise your right to cancel for a refund.

Some large/heavy items or multiple item orders are supplied on non-returnable wooden pallets. Due to the weight and size of certain products, pallets may need to be used in order to deliver such items safely. It is the customer’s responsibility to dispose of the pallets; we are unable to remove them. A delivery day will be arranged however deliveries cannot be booked in for a specific time slot. 

Following delivery, we highly recommend that any faults, missing items or damages are reported as soon as possible. This may allow us to resolve any issues more swiftly for you. Please retain all packaging until you are happy that there are no faults with your product.

We ship to UK addresses only. There may be a shipping surcharge to deliver large goods (furniture and large BBQs) to certain areas in the UK, even if delivery is stated as free. Please see the Pallet Deliveries and 2 Man Deliveries section below for more info. If a surcharge is required, we'll contact you after an order has been placed, to take surcharge payment if you wish to proceed with your order. We base surcharges on the amount we are charged by our carriers. We send via the cheapest option and our policy is to never profit from a delivery surcharge. For offshore and overseas deliveries; should you wish to arrange your own shipping agent on the mainland, please contact us for further assistance.

Certain orders may require a signature upon delivery. Should you wish to make a request for orders to be left in a ‘safe place’ with no signature (and it has been agreed with us), we cannot accept liability for items left unsupervised.

If you provide a shipping address relating to a work place or a public place, please note that once the order has been delivered, the responsibility for the product lies with the cardholder and any loss/damage is then at your own risk. Also, a signature of any authorised body is deemed to be proof of delivery.

In the case of a delivery being refused or you are not in at the agreed time at the delivery address, we reserve the right to charge a re-delivery fee. This applies to all indoor furniture orders and orders where a delivery date and time has been specifically arranged with a customer. Please note this can cost up to £150.00 per consignment depending on the size, weight and delivery location, so we highly recommend you contact us at least 48 hours prior to the arranged delivery date if you foresee any potential issues with delivery.

Please note that all garden furniture, large bulky items and pallet deliveries are kerbside only, unless stated otherwise.

Home & Garden Centre uses external delivery companies and we cannot ask delivery drivers to assist with the moving/handling of your item into houses, outbuildings, garages, up multiple steps/stairs etc. When ordering bulky/heavy items, please ensure you have the means to handle these items when delivery is received and that you are able to dispose of the packaging material.

NORTHERN IRELAND
Please note as of 11th January 2021 we have suspended all delivery of large items to Northern Ireland. This is to allow ourselves and our couriers time to get to grips with the new export processes since January 1st. Gift Vouchers and very small parcels (which are both sent by Royal Mail) are unaffected and will continue to be delivered to Northern Ireland by Royal Mail as normal. If you place an order for an affected large item we will contact you by email and refund you straight away. We will update this message when we are able to resume a normal service to Northern Ireland. Thank you for your understanding.

PRODUCT SPECIFIC INFORMATION

National Garden Gift Vouchers:
We use Royal Mail for delivering Gift Vouchers. All National Garden Gift Voucher orders over £60 are sent by Recorded Signed For (up to £105) or Special Delivery Next Day (over £105) and need to be signed for on delivery. Cut off time for next day delivery is 2pm. Any orders placed after 2pm on Friday will be dispatched the following Monday (excluding bank holidays). See our Terms & Conditions for policy on replacement vouchers due to non-delivery. If there is no-one available to sign for the National Garden Gift Voucher(s) on arrival, a card will be left by the postman informing the occupant that an attempted delivery was made. The Gift Vouchers will then be taken to the local Royal Mail Enquiry Office, where they will await collection by the recipient. A suitable form of identification (such as a utilities bill bearing the relevant address) may be required when collecting Gift Vouchers. Should your National Garden Voucher(s) not be collected within 14 days, Royal Mail will return the vouchers to us at which point we will endeavour to contact you to arrange a suitable alternative delivery address and date of delivery. We can deliver to addresses all across the UK including the Channel Islands and Scottish Isles. Despatch of National Garden Gift Vouchers is from mainland UK - please allow extra time for your order to arrive if sending to remote locations, Highlands or offshore locations.
