House of Huxley insures each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to your specified delivery address. We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfilment by us, and transfer of responsibility in the same way. The goods are your responsibility from the time we deliver them to the address specified in your order when the risk (e.g. damage or loss) will immediately pass to you.
We aim to dispatch all orders, excluding Bespoke items, within 24 hours. Delivery times appearing on the site are estimates and are to be used as a guide only and commence from the date of dispatch, we will however do everything we can to ensure your item is delivered within these timescales. We aim to dispatch Bespoke items within 14 days of the order being received, however we ask that you allow up to 30 days to account for any unexpected delays in the manufacturing or shipping process. If delivery is delayed by any event outside of our control, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimize the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to cancel your order and we will refund any goods you have paid for but not received.
