Swegway Shop Delivery Policy
If you are having a delivery problem then its not us you need to contact – it would be DPD, our designated Swegway Shop Courier.
Once your goods have been dispatched you will receive an email with Tracking Information. To track your parcel log into your e-mail account to find your tracking number for up to date tracking info. If no-one is in to accept your order, the courier should leave a card with details of how to get hold of your parcel. Please Read the card! You MUST contact the courier within 5 DAYS or the delivery will be assumed refused and you will be charged up to £19.95 for the item to be returned to us. If you need to go and pick it up or have not been carded (or lost the card) then please call your local DPD Depot.
Please also note if the courier cannot find the address specified they will store the parcel at the depot for up to 5 days, it is your responsibilty to contact the courier and arrange re-delivery or collection, again if the item has to be returned to us we will not subsidise the return fees as this is the cost charged to us for the order being returned.
For UPS Delivery Issues, the numbe you will need to contact is: 0345 787 7877
Off-Shore / Outside of UK Mainland Orders
We ONLY deliver to UK Mainland. If you order outside of UK Mainland the order will be cancelled and refunded to you. At this time we can only ship to UK Mainland addresses due to restrictions with couriers as the boards can only be transported by sea due to the battery size and type. We are looking into couriers who provide international postage for our Swegways and hope to be able to offer this option soon!
You must provide us with as much address information as possible.
If you provide us with an incorrect address you may be charged an extra fee of up to £9.95 to have a new address added to the consignment, this can also delay the delivey up up to 48 hours.
Someone (anyone) must be at the given address to sign for the delivery between 7am and 6-30pm (for standard Next Day service). Therefore we recommend delivery to a work address where someone is willing to sign for the goods during the working day. A signature is required as proof of delivery. If you choose to have your goods ‘left safe’ you CANNOT CLAIM COMPENSATION AS THE WARRANTY IS INVALID – therefore we strongly advise you NOT to request them left safe. Please also be aware that couriers deliver to an address and not to a person.
We accept no liability for a successfully completed delivery that you do not take possession of. We are delivering to an address NOT an individual. If you asked for the goods to be left safe and they are not there we or the courier accept no responsibility for the theft. If our courier logs a consignment as having been delivered and it is not at your address, please be sure to check with your surrounding neighbors and at your local depot before assuming it has been stolen. In these cases we will provide you all the help we possibly can, but it is up to you to contact and deal with the Police and with the courier as our knowledge and information on the area and your surroundings are limited.
Order Damaged Upon Delivery
If in the rare case that your order arrives damaged, please be sure to take photos of the state it arrives in (including the outer-packaging) and photos of the swegway itself. These images are crucial so that we can claim for the damages with the courier and make arrangements to resolve the damaged board! Without images of the damages, this can extend the process resolution time as we will have to dispute with the courier if the item was damaged in transit or not. Damages need to be reported within 48 hours of delivery otherwise it will cause complications with the couriers investigation and they may not be able to compensate for damages after this time so please be sure to take photographic evidence as soon as your order arrives!
You may specify a delivery day – we will hold onto your consignment until the day before.
If you need to change the delivery address after dispatch the couriers charge a re-booking fee of £7.50.
Please make sure we have a valid phone number so you can be contacted should there be any delivery problems.
If you place your order after 3pm and require your goods urgently we may be able to prioritise you – call us and we will try our very best for you.
We try very hard to get your delivery to you without wasting your time, but we require your help for this to happen. Please give us as much address information you can.
