Shipping and Returns – Balanced-Earth

Delivery charges

Delivery charges are applied at the checkout, the cost of postage will be indicated on the product page. Charges are under £10. I always use ’Signed for’ Postal Services to ensure your satisfaction and protection.

All parcels are sent by a Royal Mail service which requires a signature on receipt, so please consider putting an alternative delivery address (your work address, for example) if you are unlikely to be at home to receive the parcel. If the post person tries to deliver but no-one is in, they will leave a card asking you to call either to re-arrange delivery, or to have your parcel diverted to a local post office for you to collect. There may be a small charge for having your parcel sent to your post office.

Note for Customers:

I will endeavour to post your order the day after it is received. I use a next day delivery service. All goods should arrive within 7 working days from the date of order.

Shipping Destinations

I am at the beginning of selling with an online shop, so have decided to start with United Kingdom destinations only. I intend to expand selling destinations. However if you live in another part of the world and would like to place an order, please do get in touch with me via my Contact page and I will do our very best to help.

Returns Policy

If you are in any way dissatisfied with the goods you receive, please notify me (by post, email or telephone) within 14 days of receiving your goods, to say that you would like to cancel your order. You will then need to return the item/s within 14 days of the date on which you notified me of the order cancellation.

Please include in your parcel your order number, full name and the reason(s) for returning your purchase(s).

Please would you be kind enough to note that you are responsible for the goods while they are in your care and during transit until they are returned to me.

This is a small business and unfortunately cannot be responsible for returns that are lost or damaged in the transit or for any other reason. No refund will be given if the item is lost or damaged while in your care or during transit. Therefore please get a Proof of Posting and use a Signed For or Special Delivery service to ensure the parcel is safely returned to me.

Your refund will include the cost of the goods and will not include the charge you incur returning the goods to us unless the item is faulty.
