Delivery, Returns and Refunds

Delivery

Please be aware that delivery charges can change at any time and that all delivery charges are non-refundable. Delivery charges are based on 2nd class postage by Royal Mail at the current prevailing rate at time of order, unless otherwise agreed.

Delivery destinations are within mainland England, Wales and Scotland only. For all other U.K and International locations please contact Monteas for further information. Delivery costs can be viewed at check-out.

Orders requiring special delivery will be charged by prior arrangement only. Orders requiring a courier and/or where a signature is required, MonTeas cannot accept responsibility for non-delivery, failed with re-delivery charges or missing parcels. MonTeas will attempt to fully assist where any claim arises for non-delivered, missing parcels.

All orders will be despatched within 48 hours unless otherwise notified when placed Monday to Friday (except bank holidays) before 3 p.m. or following the nearest working day after order placement.

MonTeas delivers using Royal Mail and is, therefore, bound by their conditions. For First and Second Class deliveries, a period of fourteen working days must be allowed before making a claim for lost goods.

Returns

Returned faulty goods will be exchanged or credited, in accordance with customer statutory rights - excludes unwanted products. Where possible MonTeas will endeavour to offer an exchange on faulty products but the cost of postage and return of the faulty product remains the responsibility of the buyer.
