PRICES & VAT
We are registered for VAT in the UK (VAT registration number GB103311287) and the current rate of VAT of 20% is applied to all items, a breakdown of this cost will be provided on the purchase reciept given by Paypal or Google Checkout. For telephone orders a VAT reciept may be requested within 14 days of your purchase.
Our Mainland UK Carriage service is classed as a next working day service, but please allow 48 hours for some couriers to make delivery during peak periods. Goods will need to be signed for upon delivery, so if a work address is more suited please inform us, as re-delivery charges may apply.
Orders requiring next day delivery must be received by 2pm – please note we are unable to provide next day delivery on any order containing edge ramping. We cannot be held responsible for any delays in carriage times. Any next day orders placed after 2pm on a Friday will be dispatched on the next working day for delivery the following day (normally dispatched Monday for delivery Tuesday, unless it is a national holiday).
Delivery times are under normal working conditions and may take slightly longer during busier periods. We will endeavour to meet your delivery requirements as best we can. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us directly. We have the ability to despatch and deliver goods worldwide, but prices vary depending upon order size and delivery location – please contact Grimeford Mill Ltd for more details.
Mainland UK deliveries are made by couriers, who require a signature upon delivery or instructions of where to leave a parcel. Should there not be anybody available to sign for the parcel, a card will be posted with contact details of how to re-arrange a delivery. The goods will be attempted to be delivered twice before being returned to us. Should goods be returned to us, you could be liable to pay a re-delivery charge for goods. There is no extra charge for arranging delivery to a work address if this is more convenient, but please ensure that you inform us of this at the time of placing your order. Once goods have been dispatched we are unable to re-route the delivery to an alternative address.
We try to have the stock available at all times but this is not always possible. Should there be a delay with your order we shall telephone or e-mail giving you an estimated delivery date. Should you not accept the delivery date you will receive a refund of your payment.
We try to get the goods delivered within 3 working days. This is the time before we will place the goods on one of the carriers. However we are closed during public holidays and weekends and normally between Christmas and New Year.
Apart from APO/BFPO addresses we do not accept PO BOX numbers as addresses.
