Delivery and Returns Policy

Below is a helpful overview of our Delivery & Returns Policy and by purchasing from The EVOHOME Shop, you are accepting our Terms & Conditions. For our Full Terms & Conditions click here and for our Privacy Policy click here.

Delivery

Items purchased from The EVOHOME Shop are sent with different delivery services depending on the size/value of the parcel and/or the delivery service you have chosen. You will be notified by a separate email what delivery company your item has been sent with and the appropriate tracking number (where applicable).

We use Station Couriers UK Ltd (part of the APC Overnight parcel network) & Royal Mail for our deliveries.

Items are only dispatched on working days and for items to be dispatched on the same working day of your order, the checkout process must be completed before 3:30pm. Any order placed after 3:30pm will be sent the following working day. Friday orders placed before 3.30pm will be delivered the following Monday (excluding bank holidays), unless the Saturday delivery option has been paid for. Ordering after 3:30pm on Friday and at weekends will mean that your items will be dispatched the following working day (excluding bank holidays).

A signature is required for all our deliveries and they cannot be left without a signature. All items bought on our website require a signature at the point of delivery and will returned back to your local Post Office or local APC Overnight depot should no-one be at home to sign for them.  We are able to deliver to a neighbour or a work address if this is more convenient, but this must be specified as the 'delivery address'. If you want the parcel left with a neighbour should no one be home, this must be written in the 'notes' section at the checkout (E.g. 'Leave with number 24 or 25 if not in').

Please note Saturdays and Sundays are not classified as ‘working days’ and although most of our deliveries get there when we say they will, we cannot be held liable for exact timings of the deliveries – this is just simply beyond our control.

Unfortunately, due to legislation under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 our items can no longer be left in a 'safe place' and will be returned to your local delivery depot should no one be there to sign for them.

Northern Ireland & Republic of Ireland. 

Deliveries to Northern Ireland can be sent with any Royal Mail delivery option shown at the checkout.  Items over 2KG can only be shipped with Royal Mail Special Delivery By 1pm or APC Overnight Northern Ireland delivery option.

Delivery to Republic of Ireland is done via a road courier service who offer 2-4 day delivery service for a fixed fee of £25.12 (Inc. VAT) for up to 10 kg. However, as Republic of Ireland does not yet use postcodes we cannot 100% guarantee delivery timings. Items on our website under 2KG can be sent with 'Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed' to the Republic of Ireland.

We no longer ship to Europe or Beyond.  

Courier costs to Europe change daily and are very high.  There may also be customs issues and we are unable to insure items travelling abroad through some territories.  Therefore regretfully we have suspended the shipping abroad option from our website.

Returns Policy

All items sold on our website are sold with a 12 month warranty (unless otherwise stated). If you suspect an item is faulty within 12 months from the date of purchase, please contact us first and speak to our technical team who after a few questions will decide on the best course of action.

If you just want to return an item for any other reason and providing the item is unused (i.e. product not removed from box, tested, fitted or exchanged) and the retail packaging is completely undamaged (i.e. can be resold to another customer upon its return) we will exchange it or refund it as long as the item is returned within 30 days from the date of delivery. Please note that our 30 day returns policy does not apply to specially ordered items or items that are 'pre-bound' as part of our evohome pre-binding service.

As part of our extended 30 day returns policy, if you have paid for delivery and decide to return your item(s) or decide to cancel after the item has been dispatched, any such delivery costs incurred by our business will not be reimbursed.
