All orders will require a signature upon delivery. If anyone other then the intended recipient signs for the product and the product is subsequently not delivered to the intended recipient, we will incur no liability provided that the product was delivered to the address provided by you as part of your order. Delivery is completed once the products have been unloaded at the address for delivery set out in your order and and  signed for. Where delivery is delayed due to exceptional circumstances or a Force Majeure event we will process the delivery as soon as we reasonably can and will keep you updated regarding this by email. We will have no liability to you in that circumstance. Where delivery is not possible as a result of us being provided with the incorrect delivery details, our delivery service will return the products to us and we will hold these for five working days. We reserve the right to make an additional delivery charge for re-despatch of the products to the correct delivery address. If you have not contacted us about re-despatch within five working days we may recycle the products as our option and you will need to place a new order with us if the products are still required.
