UK Delivery Times:
All orders received Mon-Fri (excluding Bank Holidys) before 3.00pm are despatched the same day. The delivery time depends on the type of postage selected:
Royal Mail Second Class post: Royal Mail will deliver Second Class post within 3 days from posting
Royal Mail First Class post: Royal Mail statistics show that 93.7% of First Class post is delivered the day after posting, this means that you should receive your
order the day after the order has been despatched.
Royal Mail Signed For service (First Class) requires a signature on receipt and should arrive the first working day after despatch.
Royal Mail Special Delivery guarantees next working day delivery before 1pm.
Courier delivery (For motorcycle batteries to UK mainland address only.) Delivery will be made the next working day after the order has been processed.
Motorcycle Batteries are sent by Courier at a cost of £8.98 and can only be supplied within Mainland UK. Some Scottish postcodes may require additional payment.
Please check our List of Valid Postcodes.
Please note that products delivered by courier need to be signed for. If nobody is available to sign when the courier attempts delivery, the courier will leave
a card explaining that the item will be available for collection at the local depot and that they will attempt re-delivery in the following days. The battery will be
returned to us after 7 days and re-delivery after this period will be payable by the customer at an additional £8.98. If the courier is unable to deliver because a
delivery signature could not be obtained and you subsequently cancel the order we will refund your purchase less the £8.98 cost for returning the unwanted battery.
International orders despatched using the International Untracked option will be sent by Royal Mail International Standard service (formerly Airmail). As this is
not a tracked service, we cannot provide tracking information if this option is selected and compensation is not available for delayed delivery. Delivery should be within
3-7 working days, but goods are not considered lost until 5 weeks from despatch and the maximum compensation payable is 20GBP. Therefore this option is offered as a low
cost alternative for orders below £20 in value. For all other international orders we recommend using the International Tracked service. Orders sent using the
International Tracked service will be sent out by Royal Mail International Tracking and Signature Services which offer tracking and insurance.
A tracking number will be sent through to allow the customer to track the delivery.
Please note that due to restrictions on the transport of lithium batteries by air, all international orders for lithium batteries can only be delivered by courier
and the cost of this will be chargable to the customer. Please use our Contact Us
form to contact us for details.
International Deliveries Schedule
Royal Mail delivery target time for International delivery is 3-5 working days to Europe and 5-7 working days for the rest of the world.
Please note that not all our products are available for international delivery and some international destinations may not be accessible for International
Tracked service. If we are unable to supply the goods you order, or are unable to ship to your delivery address we will contact you and cancel your payment. If the goods
ordered exceed 250g in weight additional postage maybe required. We will contact you to advise you of any additional payment required if this is necessary.
Refund of Postage Charges
Please be advised that where additional postage services such as Royal Mail Signed For, Royal Mail Special Delivery and International Tracked are selected, the
additional cost of these services over Second Class post cannot be be refunded if the order is subsequently cancelled or returned for a refund.
Orders received before 3.00pm on a working day will be despatched the same day, providing the products are in stock. Provided you have supplied a valid email address, you
will receive an email confirming receipt of your order and detailing the delivery address as supplied by you. Please advise us immediately by phone (01793 778127) or email
using our Contact Us form if the address is incorrect. We cannot be held responsible for delayed or missing orders if
an incorrect address has been supplied.
If the goods are not in stock we will let you know via email that there has been a delay in sending your order. We will endeavour to get these items to you within 2
weeks of receiving your order. If the delay in delivery is unacceptable to you we will cancel your order and payment or, if payment has already been processed, we will
refund any payment taken once you have advised us that the product(s) are no longer required. If we are unable to deliver the goods within 30 days and cannot contact you
to agree a new delivery date we will cancel the order and refund your payment.
For information on delivery times by Royal Mail please see the Shipping Charges section.
All UK orders sent out by Royal Mail 1st Class post, Special Delivery or courier, should reach you the following working day. All UK orders send out by Royal Mail Second
Class post should reach you within 3 working days. In some circumstances, such as industrial action, adverse weather or peak delivery times (such as Christmas), deliveries
may be delayed. Please allow extra time for your delivery in these situations. The Royal Mail will accept compensation claims for delayed deliveries if they are delivered
3 working days or more after the due date.
Please ensure that you enter a full and correct delivery address for your order. We cannot be held responsible for orders that are not delivered where a full and correct
delivery address has not been given. If the order is returned to us by the Post Office we will re-send the order to the correct address on receipt of the correct additional
postage fee for redelivery.
If your order fails to be delivered within 5 working days, please first check with your local Post Office that they are not holding your delivery for collection;
although a card should be left to advise you of this, in a number of cases this has not happened and the delivery has been returned to us as 'Not Called For'.
If your delivery is not being held for collection please then notify us by telephone (01793 778127) or email using our
Contact Us form. Please note however that a delivery is not considered lost by the Royal Mail until 15 working days (3 weeks) have elapsed. We are therefore unable
to refund payment or replace goods until this time period has elapsed. If after 15 working days the goods have not arrived, we will claim compensation from the
Royal Mail or courier service for lost items and will then either re-send the goods or refund your payment as requested by you.
Please note that we cannot offer any refund or replacement items for lost deliveries where we are not notified within 28 days of the non-delivery.
Orders sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery are guaranteed for delivery the day following despatch and if not received within 24 hours, will be considered lost and
