Shipping & Handling Charges
Delivery service standard 48h is FREE on all orders if your address is within the United
Kingdom Mainland, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man or Outer Hebrides. The
price you see for each product is exactly the price that you will pay at
the checkout - there are no other hidden handling, packing or postage
charges when shopping online with Organic The Best unless you choose to
upgrade your Delivery Service.
the time of receiving your order we aim to have it processed,
dispatched and in your hands as quickly as possible. Orders are usually
processed and dispatched within 24 hours of receipt, or up to 48 hours
during exceptionally busy periods and after Public holidays.
As long as the address details you supplied with your order were complete and correct, deliveries should normally take:
• Standard Service — Delivery 4 to 5 business days after dispatch.
• Priority Service — Delivery 24 hours after dispatch on Monday to Friday.
All orders dispatch next day.
placed on Fridays using the priority or standard service will be delivered on
Monday, or the next working day in the case of Bank Holidays etc.
the lead up to holidays the number of orders we receive increases
significantly, as does the volume of parcel traffic in the mail network,
and this may cause delays. This should be taken into consideration when
placing orders before a Public Holiday, and especially within 2 weeks
of the Christmas Holidays.
Delivery will be via one of
our contracted Carrier Services who will require a signature of receipt,
or by Royal Mail who may also require a signature of receipt. Royal
Mail handle packages up to 2 kilos in weight, and orders over this
weight are shipped by a Carrier Service who do not deliver on weekends.
Please note due to restrictions by some carrier services we are unable to deliver to PO Box numbers.
there is a possibility that nobody will be at home during the day, you
must provide an alternative delivery address where there will be
somebody available to sign for delivery - for example a neighbour or
your works address. If there is nobody at the delivery address to accept
delivery, the Carrier Service will leave a card for you to re-arrange
delivery within the next 48 hours. It is your responsibility to monitor
such circumstances and co-operate with the delivery service.
to the increasing costs of transport and storage, Carrier Services now
make only one further attempt to deliver your order, after which there
may be a charge for any further attempts. If you fail to contact the
Carrier Service within 48 hours to arrange re-delivery, your parcel will
be returned to Organic The Best . Should your parcel be returned to
Organic The Best under such circumstances, there would be a further
delivery charge to re-send your order.
you cancel your order and request a Refund after a failed attempted
delivery, the original cost of shipping your order, plus any other costs
incurred by Organic The Best in retrieving your parcel, will be
deducted from your Refund.
Damages, Shortages and Errors
your package carefully upon delivery and if there is any sign of
damage, include the words “Damaged” on the document that you sign to
accept delivery. If your parcel is damaged, do not refuse to accept
delivery or this will jeopardise any claims for compensation against the
shipper. All damages incurred during transit must be reported
immediately to Organic The Best by email and also the Carrier Company or
Royal Mail. Do not throw away the carton or any packaging materials
since the Carrier Company or Royal Mail will need to inspect them before

not been reported to Organic The Best within this period.
