UK Regular Delivery

Our standard UK delivery charge to one address is £1.95 (inc. VAT). If you spend over £50 and are in the UK delivery will be free! Orders will be despatched within 5 working days from the date of your order. However, most orders are despatched within 24 hours. If there are any problems, eg. items being out-of-stock, we will contact you. Once your goods are despatched we'll send you a confirmation email with your estimated delivery date. This service is not guaranteed and at times can take longer than the standard 1-3 working days.

Please note: If your delivery address is classified within the Scottish Highlands & Islands, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, the Isle of Wight or the Scilly Isles, there may be an extra charge depending upon the size of the parcel. For larger and heavier items, we will have to use a Courier for which there will be an extra charge. We will contact you to confirm this extra charge before charging your credit card. We are genuinely sorry for this, but we're in the hands of the Couriers and their pricing on this.

Our Couriers consider the 'Scottish Highlands & Islands' to include the following postcodes. We're aware that a number of these postcodes are not strictly in the Highlands; however, our Couriers charge extra due to the extra distances involved. Thank you for your understanding.

All of the following are guidelines. We will endeavour to fulfil these orders on time but, as we are using third parties for our delivery services, unfortunately there can be no guarantees.

For smaller items (less than 1.75 Kg), we usually deliver by Royal Mail. For larger items, we use Courier services and someone must be available to sign for the parcel for proof of delivery. If you miss your delivery, the Courier will attempt to deliver two more times and put a card through your door for you to contact them. After which the parcel will be sent back to us. Unfortunately, this incurs an extra charge of £9.99 which will be applied to your credit card. Please ensure you're around to receive your parcel! If you would like to delay your delivery day, please contact us as soon as possible when ordering your goods. Please also contact us if you'd like to name a specific delivery date or time.

If your order was sent by Regular UK Delivery and gets lost by either Royal Mail or by the courier we will send out a replacement 10 working days after the due date. This time lapse is in conformity with Royal Mail Terms and conditions that can be found here .

For Courier deliveries to the UK Mainland, you can change your delivery address even once your goods have been despatched, please just give us a call to let us know. As long as the delivery hub does not need to be changed there will be no extra charge for this service. If the new delivery address is to a different part of the country and so the goods would need to be moved to another hub there will be a £10 fee for this service.

Next Day Delivery

Our Next Day UK delivery charge to one address is £7.50 (inc. VAT). To qualify for Next Day delivery your order must be placed before 2pm. This will allow us to despatch your goods by courier on the same day. Next Day delivery refers to next Working day. Any orders placed before 2pm on a Friday will arrive the following Monday due to the weekend.

Returns & Cancellations

Faulty or damaged goods can be returned free of charge within 30 days for a full refund.

For non-damaged or non-faulty goods, all of our products come with a 14-day no quibble guarantee providing all goods are in a resalable condition. You can cancel an order for any reason from the moment you place it until 14 days from the day you receive your goods. We refer to this as a “cooling off” period and allows you to inspect the goods we’ve delivered to you. The goods must reach us in pristine condition to receive a full refund. If goods are not returned in a reasonable condition, we reserve the right to make a deduction to the refund. You will be required to cover the costs of returning the goods to us. We will be happy to arrange a pickup for you.

For both cases above, please contact us to arrange your return within 14 days of receiving your order using one of the options below. If you fail to do so, we will deem you have accepted your order/goods and we will not be able to refund you. You have a further 16 days after you've contacted us to return your goods to us.

Once you've been in touch with us, we'll issue you with a RMA Number for your returned goods. Please mark this clearly on the package so that we can identify your parcel. We’ll also explain to you options for returning your delivery. Items are returned at the customer’s own risk and we cannot accept liability for any returns lost in transit. If you are using Royal Mail to return your goods, please ask for a Certificate of Posting which is issued at no extra cost from the Post Office.

In these cases, we'll contact you before taking payment or despatch to agree these extra delivery charges. For countries not included on the list below, prices are available on request. Please call us on 0044 1303 290 550 or email us via admin@cowlings.com.
