CAN I CHANGE THE SHIPPING ADDRESS?

For orders placed online we do provide the option to ship to an address different to the billing address. However, for security reasons, this service is discretionary. We reserve the right to only ship to the billing address, or to verify details with our customers before shipping to a different address.

If you have made a mistake with your shipping details please contact us via email or telephone and we will try to amend them.

Please note, we can make no guarantees to change addresses prior to shipping. If an order has been shipped we are unable to amend the shipping address.

DO I PAY CUSTOMS & IMPORT CHARGES IF I LIVE OUTSIDE THE EU?
Customs and import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.

Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost might be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting.

The customer must take full liability for any parcels returned to us due to unpaid customs charges. Postal charges, return shipment costs, customs charges and handling fees will all be deductible from any refund due.

Should you be unavailable to sign for the parcel you can select from a number of options including, collection from a DHL ServicePoint, deliver with a neighbour or arrange a new home delivery. If they attempt delivery and you are not available they will leave a yellow card detailing how to proceed with regard to re-delivery or collection. They will usually re-attempt delivery before returning your parcel to our store.
