Delivery Policy

1. Introduction

1.1 This policy contains details of the delivery methods, periods and charges that apply to orders for our products made through our website or by telephone or email.

1.2 This policy is a legally binding document, and forms part of the contract of sale between you and us made under our terms and conditions of sale.

2. Free delivery

2.1 We offer free standard delivery to all mainland UK addresses on all orders over GBP 100 (including VAT). A small number of products are excluded from this offer due to shipping restrictions (size/weight etc.) but these are clearly marked in the product description.

2.2 All other orders will be subject to delivery charges as detailed in Section 5.

3. Geographical limitations

3.1 We will deliver to the following countries and territories: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

3.2 We are usually able to ship goods worldwide but we ask that anyone placing international orders contacts us directly to place their order (either by phone on: 00442088520119 or via email: web@selectric.co.uk as shipping costs normally have to be calculated for the specific size and weight of the order and will depend what type of service you require (airmail, surface, tracked etc.).

3.3 Due to shipping restrictions imposed by our delivery service provider's, on occasion we may not be able to fulfil part or all of an order due to the geographical location of the delivery address. On these occasions we will contact the customer directly to discuss either cancelling/amending the order or arranging alternative shipping methods (we reserve the right to charge for alternative shipping services should they be agreed).

4. Delivery methods and periods

4.1 The methods that we use to deliver our products, and the time periods within which delivery is usually completed, are as follows:

(a) We aim to ship all United Kingdom Mainland orders within 2 working days of receipt (with the exception of orders containing special order items, please see section 4.3 for more details). Dependant on the size and weight of the final order shipping options may include Royal Mail 24hr, Royal Mail 48hr or a courier next day service (excludes weekends).

(b) If your delivery address is on the United Kingdom mainland and you select Royal Mail 48hr, the typical period for delivery of products by this method is 3-4 working days.

(c) If your delivery address is on the United Kingdom mainland and you select Royal Mail 24hr, the typical period for delivery of products by this method is 2-3 working days.

4.3 Orders containing items marked on our website as Special Order will be dispatched once the items in question have been ordered and arrived into stock at Selectric. The time frame given in days (e.g. Special Order 3 - 5 days) indicates the approximate number of working days the item will take to arrive into our stock and should be factored in addition to the delivery periods detailed in section 4.1. In most cases unless expressely requested and agreed an order containing both stocked and special order items will be shipped only once the complete order is available in our stock. If for any reason a special order item is delayed or unavailable we will inform you immediately and you will be given the option to amend or cancel your order.
