Mail Order and Packing
Demijohn is able to deliver easily and safely to almost anywhere in the world. After over 8 years of experience, we have got rather good at it! When you checkout your delivery charge will be calculated automatically. You will also be offered a number of different delivery options, including being able to collect your order for Free from one of our shops or finding out how much more you need to spend until you qualify for a Free Delivery for example.
- International Delivery Our website is designed to process our popular international deliver zones and your price is based on the total packed weight of your order. The heavier your order the greater the delivery charge. However, please be aware larger orders are proportionally cheaper to send. If you are unable to complete an order online, it does not mean we do not wish to ship to you. So please contact us with your order request and we will provide you with a full quote of charges and conditions for you to consider.
- In Store Collections If collecting your order from one of our shops, please allow 5 working days before visiting to collect or contact us to arrange a faster processing time. Delivery Charges Unlike a lot of mail order companies, Demijohn only ever charges cost price for its Standard Delivery Service. So rest assured you are getting good value. Please note, our Free Delivery offer only applies to our Standard UK Delivery Service.
- Speed of Delivery Standard deliveries within mainland UK will normally arrive within 4-5 working days. If you choose "Express" delivery we will push your order to the front of the queue and do everything possible to get it to you within 2-3 working days. Please note "Express" delivery is only available for UK Mainland delivery addresses. Even faster delivery times are often possible if required, for example to meet a particular deadline. In order to help us meet your deadline please write any delivery deadline details in the Special Delivery Instructions field when you checkout.
- What happens if my order does not arrive on time? Sadly delivery times cannot be guaranteed, although we will always do everything in our power to try and make your chosen delivery date and time. If you require a faster delivery service than offered online then please contact us to make a special arrangement quoting your order number. Please be aware that an additional charge may apply for non standard delivery times.
- Returns and Refunds We are extremely careful about how we pack all parcels to ensure they arrive with you in perfect condition. However, sometime our couriers are not as careful as they should be and your order may unfortunately arrive damaged on arrival. Occasionally we may make a mistake ourselves while processing your order, for this we are sorry, we are only human! If you are unhappy in anyway with your order on arrival please contact us immediately and we will do everything we can to put it right as soon as possible. To help us help you, please ensure you retain the product as evidence of damage and any associated packaging. If you wish to return a purchase that is not faulty in anyway and is still in its original purchase condition, we will happily refund your money or exchange this product if you inform us within 7 days following the delivery of your goods. In this event, the products must be returned to us in good condition. We will make reimbursements within 30 days of cancellation. Any product returned must be within its original packaging. Unfortunately we cannot pay for the delivery charge of unwanted products. If, however, any products that we send to you are faulty or damaged we will replace them or reimburse you for the expense, including the cost of delivery, if you prefer. If products are faulty or damaged, we require that you tell us within a reasonable time of receipt of the products. All refunds and reimbursements will be paid within 30 days of your notifying us of your wish to return the products. Any product returned must be adequately packed to avoid any possible damage.
