Please note that standard mainland deliveries are made by UK Mail, Hermes, Royal Mail and on occasions Yodel and other carriers where necessary and may require a signature. If you need more information contact us with the order detals and we will advise who the carrier will be.

UK Mail will leave the goods at your risk if instructed to to do so when the order is placed. 

Yodel will need a signature, should you not be in when delivery is being made, Yodel will try close neighbours and leave a card if the first delivery fails BUT ONLY ONE card will be left - no more cards will be left on subsequent attempts. Two more attempts will be made and if these fail then we are afraid that you the customer will then have to arrange to collect your items from the holding depot within 48 hours, before the goods are returned to us the sender.

Return to sender is charged at £16.00 per parcel and we reserve the right to deduct this from any refunds that may become applicable.

Should you decide to ask for delivery whereby goods are left at your designated place, please note that you will assume full liability for the safety of the goods and we cannot be held responsible for any losses or damage when goods are left at your request.

European and International Deliveries

For our customers located in Europe and further afield, we will be delighted to organise for your products to be delivered to you, however unfortunately our shopping cart simply cannot calculate a postage cost due to the varying shipping methods that we use. We always select the most cost effective and reliable shipping method possible and therefore should you be located in a country that requires a shipping cost to be calculated,

please email us with full order details and delivery address and we will calculate the cost for you.

Returns and Refunds

1.If you are returning goods that are damaged you should notify us within 72 hours of receiving the goods, we require the goods to be left as they were received, to enable any possible claim to be put against our suppliers or carriers. We would also require photographic evidence of any damages. We will look at each case individually and if we required you to return the goods we will refund the shipping cost, alternatively we will pick up from your premises and provide you a full replacement.

2. Unwanted goods can be returned to us for a refund or credit if they are in perfect resalable condition and within 14 days of receiving these goods. Return costs will be paid by the customer and if you ask us to make arrangements for a pick up we will refund the cost of the goods minus any return shipping costs incurred by the company, the cost to be agreed in advance. This may not be exactly the shipping cost shown on the invoice as this is often subsidised.

However we sincerely hope that you will never need to use this service and that your orders will be correct first time and that you will be pleased with your purchases.

Renewed thanks for shopping with Gardening Works.
