Dream Petticoats Terms & Conditions

Orders within the UK will be sent by Royal Mail 1st Class, 1st Class Recorded, Special Delivery or the service discussed at the time of purchase. Dream Petticoats will not be held responsible for Royal Mail's failure to deliver on time or any other courier service used. All orders will be processed and posted as the despatch times shown on the product page or the time pre-agreed with the customer. Dream Petticoats will not be held responsible for late deliveries due to strike action, adverse weather conditions or any other delay which is out of Dream Petticoats control. We always obtain a Proof of Posting/Recorded posting slip which we will follow up on your behalf should the need arise. Please note that if you have requested a special delivery message during checkout ie: Please leave in Greenhouse/Garage etc and the parcel goes missing we will not be held responsible as this has been done at your request.
If you require an item despatching urgently within the UK, we offer a Priority Next Day Delivery Service. To use this service you must contact us by telephone or email (contact details are available on our 'Contact Us' page here. You will need to provide us with the item you require and the delivery date that you would like to receive it by. We will discuss any further details and agree a despatch date with you. Please note: The despatch date is the date that we will post your item and not the date that you will receive your item. Dream Petticoats will not be held responsible for the Royal Mail or any other agreed courier/mail/parcel service's failure to deliver your item on time as this is totally out of Dream Petticoats control. However, we will guarantee to despatch/post your item on the pre-agreed date.
The Priority Next Day Delivery Service is offered at our discretion based on current workload for our staff and the status of the delivery companies used. All other conditions are as our Standard Shipping and Handling Terms and Conditions above.
There will be an additional charge for the Priority Next Day Delivery Service. An online invoice will be sent to your email address and must be paid before work commences on your petticoat. The fee's we charge for our fast track service include the extra Special Delivery charge, a seamstress working unsociable/overtime hours and the preferential move to the front of the current workload queue.
Orders placed after 5pm are counted as being placed on the following day. Only working days are counted (i.e. Monday - Friday). Saturday's and Sunday's do not count as normal working days, nor do they count in the delivery times. Please be aware that if your item is despatched on a Friday, the item should be delivered to you on the following Monday. However, Royal Mail sometimes have been known to deliver on a Saturday depending on their workload.
The Priority Next Day Deliveries are sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery. Please note that the parcel must be signed for on receipt. If there is nobody at the delivery address to sign for the parcel, it will be returned to your local Royal Mail delivery office. The post person should leave you a card to inform you of this. You will then be able to contact the delivery office to re-arrange delivery for another day or collect the parcel in person when your delivery office is open for collections. Dream Petticoats is not responsible for parcels that are lost due to the postal services negligence to deliver the item to the correct address, nor are we responsible for parcels that are left at company receptions, PO boxes of any kind and concierge's in flats, apartments or any communal living space.
