Delivery & Returns Policy
Chartex aims to process orders on the day payment is taken.
All products are carried in stock and dispatch promptly usually via Yodel, Hermes, Royal Mail or UPS tracked courier service.
UK delivery time is 1-4 days (excluding weekends & Bank Holidays), International deliveries are generally 7-21 days but can be subject to unforeseen delays by orders being held in Customs.
Delivery times are approximate and given in good faith but could be subject to change depending on unforeseen circumstances and involvement of third parties.
Chartex incurs shipping and packaging costs therefore a postage/shipping charge is applicable on all orders.
Chartex cannot accept liability for delivery difficulties caused by customers supplying incorrect address information or failing to collect orders from pre-arranged delivery points or not complying with collection instructions left by couriers.
