Shipping & Returns


SHIPPING

 

How long does it take to process an order?

Please allow 1-2 days for your order to be processed for shipping.

We make every effort to fulfil orders as quickly as possible and aim to send out orders received before 2pm on a next day delivery service.

 

What about shipping?

We ship both domestically and to a select number of international destinations.

Shipping times and costs depend on your location.

We use FedEx Express Service for standard items (under 140cm long), and Tuffnells Parcels Express for long length items (over 140cm).

These couriers quote, but do not guarantee next day delivery for domestic shipping. International shipping is longer.

Personalised (custom-made) orders including trough lights, letters and neon signs can take 10-15 days to create and deliver because they are made to order. However, we will always try to meet your timescales, so do please let us know if you have a target date.

How has COVID-19 impacted shipping?

The impact of COVID-19 is causing local, state, and national governments in Europe and around the world to issue work and travel restrictions on a daily basis, which are impacting our couriers' ability to meet their high standards of service. As a result we will be unable to offer money-back guarantees for all shipping, effective immediately until further notice and will no longer issue credit notes for delayed shipments related to COVID-19, as this situation is beyond our control. For shipments returned to us for reasons related to COVID-19, the buyer will be billed for returns, and credit notes will not apply.

 

What if I'm not available to accept the goods, or I've missed them?

Where the delivery is unsuccessful due to the absence of the consignee or the consignee refusing delivery and then subsequently requesting delivery or where due to insufficient delivery address the consignment is returned back to the depot for address verification and re-tendered for delivery Spectron LED Ltd reserves the right to impose a surcharge of an amount equal to 50% of the original consignment charge for each attempt to deliver thereafter. Where the delivery address supplied is incorrect, resulting in a re-delivery the Spectron LED Ltd reserves the right to impose a surcharge of an amount equal to 100% of the original consignment charge for a subsequent attempted delivery.
