All delivery charges and areas are shown on our delivery pricing page. We reserve the right to amend all delivery prices and conditions at their discretion and without notice. Deliveries will be sent via courier.

If there is problem with your order?
Any breakages, shortages and discrepancies with your order must be reported as soon as possible after receipt of the order.
If you wish to cancel your order, in accordance with the EU's Distance Selling Directive, we require notice in writing either by fax or email within 10 working days after date of delivery.
If you do cancel your order, please note that you are responsible for all return shipping charges. When applicable, shipping fees at time of purchase are not refundable. You must ensure the goods are packed adequately to protect against damage. Return shipping charges are £30 per carton for Great Britain and £40 per carton for Northern Ireland, Islands, Highlands, Jersey, Guernsey and Rep. of Ireland.
We are sorry, but we cannot accept the following returns:
If you fail to return the goods, we will arrange return and charge the direct cost of collection plus £10 per carton. If you fail to take reasonable care of the goods, before they are returned, and this results in damage or deterioration of the goods, we will charge you a £35 per carton fee for the reduction on value.
Please allow us up to 30 days after your notice of cancellation to apply your credit. Thank you for your understanding.
What is the return policy?
Unless the goods are defective, damaged or not as specified on your order acknowledgement, you are responsible for the cost of returning the goods to us. We recommend you use tracked delivery service, as proof of shipping is not proof of receipt. If there has been a change of mind, it is the customers' responsibility to meet all costs of the returned delivery and to take care that goods returned are in a reasonable condition.
If you do find that an item is faulty or damaged, please contact us immediately at 02033 686 726, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will offer you a full refund for the order (this includes standard original delivery cost).
All returned goods should neither be used, nor assembled or part assembled and should be returned with their original packaging, except where the items are faulty.
You must take reasonable care of the goods while they are in your possession and ensure that goods are not damaged in return transit to Balsam Hill®. You will be responsible for the cost of returning the goods unless they are faulty.
We recommend you use a tracked delivery service for return of the items. We can arrange a collection service for you at your expense.

Do I have to pay for returns?
Unless the goods are defective, damaged or not as specified on your order acknowledgement, you are responsible for the cost of returning goods to the merchant. We recommend that you use tracked delivery service, as proof of shipping is not proof of receipt.
