Please note that for Special Delivery you must purchase your order before 12.00pm (on the day), for your item to be posted within 24 hours.
What courier do you use?
For orders within the UK, Your item(s) will be posted using Royal Mail Second Class Recorded Delivery.
Royal mail will get a signature from whoever receives the item, but bear in mind that this may not be the person named on the address label. If there's nobody available to sign for the item and the item is not collected or redelivery rearranged within seven calendar days, the item will be returned to us, with a note saying why they can't deliver it. If this happens we will contact you via email to determine if you want to cancel your order or the item redelivered. If you decide to cancel we will refund the cost of the item only. If you decide on a redelivery then the postage will have to be paid for again.
Orders to Europe and the rest of the world will be posted using Royal Mails International Signed For service. Your item is delivered to its destination by the registered postal service of that country. A signature will be taken at the delivery address (please note this will not necessarily be the addressee), which means the item is not left unattended or posted through a letterbox. If no-one is available to sign for the item then it will be retained by the postal administration. for a subsequent delivery attempt or collection by the addressee.

The buyer accepts responsibility for items until we receive them.
Please return items using a traceable or insured method such as recorded delivery, or obtain a proof of posting certificate from the Post Office, as we cannot refund for items which are lost on their way back to us.
Please note that we only refund for items purchased and not for delivery.
Goods must be returned in their original condition as they were posted complete with appropriate packaging and the original tags. Refunds will be processed within 10 days of receipt.

A word about vintage clocks. If you have purchased a clock from us with the original mechanism, and you find once you get it home it seems not to be working, a little TLC is required. Simply give it a wind, then gently tilt it from side to side before setting it down on a flat surface. Some clocks will prefer a more gentle tilt than others, its a question of getting to know your clock!
