FOR UK ORDERS
You will be notified of the delivery costs automatically before you submit your credit card details. For more information about our delivery charges for dispatches to UK addresses call us. Delivery outside the EU varies considerably and we advise calling our helpline +44 1358 722224 to check delivery costs before completing the order. Also the goods may be subject to local import taxes, which are your responsibility where they apply. If so, the shipping company should contact you by telephone once your Products are in customs to let you know the charge due or else you should consult your local customs office. Unfortunately we cannot advise you what these charges will be and Chillchaser® is not responsible for them. Chillchaser® offers Standard Delivery (2-3 days) and Express Delivery (next working day via courier). Please see the Checkout page for details on these services. Each Product has a link on the product page stating the estimated delivery time for that Product and you should refer to these for more details about delivery times. Orders generally are dispatched either by Royal Mail (1st Class) or by another Courier such as FedEx or UPS. Our couriers require a signature and generally operate between 9am and 5pm on weekdays only, so please specify an address where someone will be able to sign for your Products between these hours. We can offer in some cases a Saturday delivery by FedEx or UPS at extra charge. We will make every effort to deliver within the time stated on our online shop or EBay but we will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery. If the Products are not delivered within the estimated delivery time which we quote, please contact us by telephone or email and we will try and ensure that you receive your Order, as quickly as possible, or if you wish you may cancel your Order and we will refund the money you have paid. Please note that while items sent by Royal Mail usually arrive within 2-3 days, Royal Mail stipulate that only items still not delivered after 15 working days can be officially classified as lost. Please Order from Chillchaser® with enough lead-time to prevent any loss or disappointment resulting from the delivery time as Chillchaser® cannot be responsible for this. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer. You are noted to Print a copy of the final order page for your own reference when you place your order with Chillchaser®.

Note that the couriers will only hold a parcel at your local delivery depot for 5 days before returning it to us.
DELAY IN ROYAL MAIL DELIVERIES
Though your delivery can be expected within the time advised*, if your parcel does not arrive, we will have to wait up to 15 days for confirmation from the Royal Mail that a parcel is missing. It is at this point we can re-issue, refund or cancel your order with us. The Royal Mail service is ideal for small/lightweight items! Unfortunately it comes at a price (15 days), if it does not arrive by the due date stated in your delivery confirmation. If you require an item urgently, then we would recommend you use the Courier Option at the time of order.

We keep a large range of spare parts in stock in the UK (even for older models) and we will try our best to locate a part for you if we do not have it in stock.

We cannot be held responsible for attempted but failed deliveries and you should contact the courier company on the card they leave if they miss you to arrange a suitable time for second attempt. Should the goods be returned to us you will be charged for a second carriage charge.
PROBLEMS WITH DELIVERY
Although we do our best to ensure that all orders are delivered next day it is possible that a small number of parcels may exceed the estimated delivery period due to a number of factors.
These factors can include the locality of the delivery address within the UK, delays within the postal service, or exceptionally busy periods. Normally these factors are out of our control but we do our very best to your order to you as soon as possible.
