If you wish to arrange for items to be delivered outside of the UK please contact us on info@carrielou.co.uk before placing your order.

 

Delivery will be made as soon as possible, usually our waiting time is between 3-4 weeks for personalised items,  If payment is made by cheque we will not start work until payment is cleared, thsi time is outside our waiting time. All times quoted on the website do not include weekends or bank holidays.

We cannot accept liability for out of pocket expenses or other costs incurred due to failed or delayed deliveries



The majority of our products are despatched by Royal Mail and Interlink.  If you have not received your items, you must check with your local sorting office even if you have not received notification from your postman that they are holding items for you.



In the event that we produce an item for you and subsequently the original is returned as undelivered by the postal company used, we reserve the right to charge an administrative fee up to 100% of the sales price of the produced product.

In the event you have not received your order, we must allow the following timescales before we can take further action, and claim back from the relevant carrier for lost items.


Standard delivery: 14 working days from date of despatch
 


Order Cancellations


For some items, you have the legal right to cancel your order within 7 working days of receiving the goods. However, this does not apply to certain items which we have made, personalised or customised specifically for you.



If you wish to cancel your order you can notify us by email to info@carrielou.co.uk before we have dispatched the goods to you or where goods have already been dispatched to you, the goods must be returned to us in accordance with the 'Returns and exchange' section below.



Please check your order on screen and the confirmation email carefully as we cannot refund products which have been miss-spelt.

We reserve the right to cancel your order at any time and issue a full refund.

The provisions of this clause do not affect your statutory rights.



Returns and exchange


If you are not completely satisfied with the goods, simply return them to us at any time within 14 working days of receipt. If goods are returned within 7 working days of receipt we will issue a full refund including postage and packaging, or an exchange. After 7 working days we will refund the cost of the order minus the postage and packaging charge paid. The costs of returning goods to us shall be borne by you.



The item is your responsibility until it reaches us. For your own protection, we recommend that you send the parcel back to using a delivery service that insures you for the value of the goods as we cannot be held responsible for items damaged or lost in the post.



Your rights to return the goods to us will not apply in the following circumstances:

-Any products that we have made, personalised or customised specifically for you, including all feeding tube pads. 
-Where, in our opinion, you have not taken reasonable care of goods whilst in your possession and have not been returned with the original packaging.
- If you have made a spelling mistake on your order and it has been sent for production.
- You have disposed of the item you have an issue with.

If you return an item because of an error on our part, or because it is defective, we will happily refund the full value of the item and your costs in returning it to us.

 

 The item(s) must be returned in the condition in which you received it within 30 days of delivery. By the very individual nature of personalised products, they cannot be re-sold, and therefore we cannot accept returns if you have a change of mind.

We regret that postage and packing costs for unwanted items cannot be refunded.

 

Please note:
• You have a duty to return the item to us and the cost of doing so is your responsibility, except if the item is faulty or does not comply with the contract.
 

This returns policy does not affect your statutory rights.



The address for returns is at the top of our terms and conditions.



Discounts

If a discount was applied to your original order, the amount refunded will be adjusted to allow for the revised order value and appropriate discount level. Please note you can only use one discount code per order.


Our Multi-buy discounts give discounted rates on bulk orders, to qualify for this you must order the correct amount of items for the discount level chosen, all of which must have the same initial design (left breast, back or other initial design)  This includes the same text and any images.  Should we discover the multibuy discount has been wrongly checked we will contact you to ask for the remainder to make this up to our single item rate.
