Pallet Deliveries
Please be aware that the free delivery option for larger items is a pallet drop-off at curbside only.

This service is provided to us by a third party, and you must be aware that:

  • You will have to be at home to receive and sign for this item.
  • Remove the large item from the pallet on the curbside.
  • Remove all packaging.
  • Carry the sizeable heavy item into your home or premises.
  • Assemble the item and dispose of the packaging.

Delivery Options
We highly recommend you consider having your item delivered and set up in the home by one of our fully trained Driver Technicians. This service is far superior to the kerbside pallet delivery and alleviates the problems and stress associated with the receipt and assembly of these heavy items.

This option is available on larger items at the product page. The default delivery option is free curbside delivery.

Please see option 2

VAT on Delivery
Unfortunately, VAT is chargeable on all deliveries whether the client is VAT exempt or not, as per HMRC directives.

Made to Order
Some of our products,  for example, are custom made so require extra time to be manufactured. Under the Distance Selling Regulations, we have 30 days to deliver to you, but please be assured that we strive to do so as quickly as possible.

Out of Stock Items
Occasionally we might be out of stock of an item. In this situation, we will try to contact you by phone or email and offer the option to cancel your order for a full refund if you would rather not wait or receive a suitable alternative.

For orders outside the UK mainland, please contact us Shelden on 0800 888 6062 for specific delivery prices and we'll do our best to keep the delivery costs as low as we can.

Change of Mind, Wrong Size or Unsuitable Items
We understand that you may want to return an order that you feel is unsuitable, that turns out to be the wrong size for you or if you've just changed your mind. Apart from a few items that cannot be cancelled and returned (see below), we are happy to offer an exchange or a refund, provided an item is returned to us unused, in its original condition and within 28 calendar days of receipt. You need to take reasonable care when returning an order to us as you will need to both pay for and be responsible for the return. As such, we recommend that you take out a tracked, insured return. If you want an alternative product please call us and we can arrange this for you.

Damaged on Arrival or Wrong Items Were Sent
Please call us immediately on the day you receive it if this has happened as we cannot take up any issues with our Couriers unless we are notified straight away. It also means we can do something about it quickly. We may require proof of damage so if you can take a photo and email us, that would be great. Where a courier wants you to sign for damaged goods, please write a note that they are damaged or "Awaiting inspection". If you have received the wrong order, we would like to check any part numbers on your order as sometimes we use a different name to market a product to the one a manufacturer may use. Otherwise, we'll arrange to get the item back to us. A refund or replacement can only be sent once we have received items and confirmed any damage.

Faulty Items
In the unlikely event of an item becoming faulty, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 applies. If within warranty, we'll probably need to get the item back to us to either fix or replace it. A replacement can only be sent once we have confirmed the fault so if you cannot wait for the item to be returned before we send one out, then please place a new order and we will refund or replace the initial item or send as soon as the fault is confirmed.
