Privacy and Cookies – our Privacy Policy and a description of our use of Cookies is described in our Privacy policy.

Acceptance of your order – processing your payment and confirming your order does not constitute legal acceptance of your order.

Delivery Times – most items are available from stock and every effort is made to ensure that confirmed orders, placed up to 14:00 on a working day, are delivered the following working day. Special orders may take more time. We will make every effort to notify you of exceptions to this. We aim to minimise delivery charges to our customers, and use the services of a number of couriers and delivery companies depending upon the delivery time, destination and nature of the goods being transported.

Refunds– refunds will be effected by the same means as the original payments (e.g. refund of a credit card payment will be by means of a credit card refund).

Customer Cancellations- Orders may be cancelled at any time prior to dispatch of an email from Packers & Shims confirming dispatch of your order. A full refund will be issued.

Returned goods (customers fault) – In the case of a customer wishing to return incorrectly ordered goods the customer will bear the cost of return. Packers & Shims will refund the cost of the items less a 15% re-stocking charge. Customers must inform Packers & Shims in writing or by e-mail of their intention to return the goods within 7 days of receipt of delivery and the goods must be returned within a further 7 days. Bespoke manufactured items (special orders) cannot be returned unless specifically agreed.

Returned goods (Packers & Shims fault)- If the customer wishes to return faulty or incorrectly supplied goods, Packers & Shims reserves the right to choose a courier. A full refund will be issued upon receipt of the undamaged, returned goods.
