IMPORTANT DELIVERY INFORMATION/POLICY
It is your responsibility to ensure all delivery address/details for the recipient given are correct. Nicola Florist cannot accept any responsibility or costs for non-delivery to the intended recipient or losses in such circumstances.
Nicola Florist STRONGLY recommends that the sender advises the recipient to expect a delivery.
Ensuring that the recipient is going to be at the delivery address, on the day of delivery, remains the responsibility of the sender. Nicola Florist cannot accept responsibility or costs incurred in such circumstances of non-delivery.
Delivery to flats
In some flats please be aware that tenants may sign and receive deliveries for neighbours. You should be aware of this when placing an order for delivery. If a delivery has not arrived on time it is likely that a neighbour may have accepted and signed for a delivery on the recipient's behalf. Please therefore notify the recipient to check with neighbours.
For orders where a third party will accept and sign for the delivery on the recipient's behalf, for example, a hospital, airport, college, university, workplace, secure housing (with doorman) or any other such place, the signature of any person authorised to accept delivery on behalf of the organisation shall be accepted as proof of delivery. Nicola Florist suggests that the sender takes the time to inform any such third party to expect the delivery prior to placing an order to ensure there is no delay in the recipient receiving the order.
Our trained drivers with our own transport will deliver all the orders. See our special web promotion below at item 13.
MAIN TERMS AND GUARANTEE
Whilst we endeavour to only show items on the website that are in stock, goods are subject to availability. If the flowers that we have received are not up to our high standards, we reserve the right to substitute any product with an alternate product of a similar style and equivalent (or greater) value and quality.
If your order arrives damaged or you have a complaint on quality, please notify us by telephone or email within 2 days of the delivery date and we will despatch a replacement as stated above. A complaint after this period falls outside our No Quibble Guarantee. If a complaint is made between 3 and 7 days following delivery you may be required to return the goods to us or send a photograph perhaps by email. This is to allow us to assess a complaint fully to improve our offering and service. Problems between 3 and 7 days are usually associated with poor after care, so please ensure instructions on flower care are followed carefully. In such circumstances where you are requested to return an order, we will refund postage costs if the goods provided are found to be at fault. Unfortunately a quality complaint cannot be investigated if made later than 7 days following date of delivery. Please note in the cases of roses, this is 5 days. Please contact us at any point or view our website if you require tips or additional information on flower care.
If you need to contact us within the UK, call us on 01256 354 771 Monday - Saturday 8.30 AM - 5.30 PM.
Our target response for replying to your emails is 24 hours however, in practice, this is usually just a few hours but can be longer around the peak ordering periods such as Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Easter and Christmas.
4. CANCELLATIONS AND RETURNS POLICY
- If you wish to cancel your order:
- You can notify us by email to email@example.com before we have dispatched the goods for/to you:
- Please note: only cancellations given at least 48 hours before delivery date will be eligible for a refund. Orders placed or cancelled on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays will be treated as having been received on the following working day. To cancel orders, please call 01256 354 771.
