We aims to deliver items ordered to you as soon possible. Units with software or components to be fitted please allow an extra 1-2 days. International orders are generally received in under 7 days.
To help you plan for your delivery, we will send you an e-mail with tracking details, as soon as your order has been shipped. You are also very welcome to contact us on the target delivery day, for a tracking update.
Our couriers do not work to predesignated time slots, or contact customers prior to delivery, so someone will need to be 'in' from 8am to 6pm on that day, at the delivery address, to sign for the goods. Because the items we sell are high risk, our couriers are legally contracted to deliver only to the delivery address given on order. If no-one is 'in' at the delivery address to sign, our couriers will not normally deliver to any other address (eg a neighbour's).
Please contact us for further details.
We wish that our delivery conditions did not have to be so stringent, but the IT industry is classed as 'high theft / fraud risk' by the Credit Card issuing banks and insurance companies, so I'm afraid that this has to be reflected in our delivery conditions - and also in our general terms and conditions, as shown below.
We ship Worldwide. International customers must request confirmation of shipping charges before buying or bidding for an item (Unless our system is automatically showing shipping charges for your destination).
Royal Mail Item Not received:
- We rely on Royal Mail and have no control over their system. Royal Mail states that “Items cannot be considered lost until after 15 workings days(UK)/25 working days(International) of postage”.
- We always offer replacement or full refund if parcel is lost in transit. We require a signed NON DELIVERY FORM, which you can fax or scan and email it to us, this is to avoid false claims. NON DELIVERY FORM can be downloaded from: http://microdream.co.uk/form/form.pdf
All items should be checked at the time of delivery for any damage or missing items. Failure to do so may affect any warranty claims that you make thereafter.
We cannot accept any notifications of damages where we are informed later than 7 days after you took delivery.
