Delivery Charges For Online Orders from Freeman & Harding
Orders are normally despatched within 3 working days. In practice, most orders (apart from Highlands & Islands orders) received before 12pm are despatched that day for delivery next day. Highlands and Islands deliveries may take up to 5 working days. We are proud of our good reputation and exceptionally quick turn around on orders. If we can physically get your order out the day it's placed, then we will but please bear in mind that our courier collects our parcels at 3pm.
June - September is peak season, deliveries can take up to 7-10 working days to reach you during this period. We do our best to ship as soon as we can.
Parcels need to be signed for - if you are not going to be home, our courier can deliver according to your instructions - please let us know. However, please note that deliveries not signed for are left at your own risk and Freeman & Harding cannot be held responsible for any damage or loss subsequently notified to us.
Free returns are not offered, if you are unable to accept delivery or change your mind you will be asked to pay the cost of the return delivery charge.
If you are not available to take delivery of the goods, they will be returned to our warehouse after two delivery attempts and your payment will be refunded less the cost of the delivery to you.
Any errors or damage must be notified to us immediately. Photographic evidence is required for all claims and should be sent within 24 hours.
All packages should be signed for as "unchecked".
Please ensure all packaging components are tested with the intended product. Freeman & Harding accepts no responsibility for any loss resulting from incompatibility.
