Collection & Delivery
Customers can collect their items from the Company BIRD's warehouse or shop and make payment at the same time if they so wish. Please call beforehand to ensure that someone will be able to deal with you. If we are delivering the items they will be despatched by our nominated courier company. Please be aware that courier companies are not 100% reliable. The Company accepts responsibility for ensuring your order is received by the courier company, and that their paperwork is completed accurately. However, we do not accept responsibility for errors made by courier companies. We do not offer a 'deliver inside' or installation service. In the event that a booking has been made with the buyer but the delivery company arrives to find that there is no-one to accept delivery the buyer will be responsible for any re-delivery charges and the goods will not be released from the carrier's depot until such fees have been paid to the seller. Please note that any delivery which involves a major water crossing will incur additional charges as will deliveries to some of the more remote areas of the British Isles. We always pass these charges on to the buyer at our cost + VAT. If you are unsure about how much delivery will be then contact us before making your purchase as we will insist on payment of these additional charges before shipping the goods.
For non-trade sales the Company will require cleared funds prior to despatch of goods. We accept payment by cash in person, cheque (we require 7 days for cheques to clear before we can release goods), BACS (ask for bank details), all major credit cards (either in person or card holder not present) and postal orders. Please make cheques and postal orders payable to BIRD. If sending postal orders please use recorded or special delivery mail. We cannot accept liability for any monies sent but not received. Trade sales are subject to approval by our credit referral agency. In the case of a zero credit limit we will require cleared funds prior to despatch of goods. We reserve the right to charge interest under The Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 on overdue accounts.
Packing & Transport
We will ensure that all orders are packaged in a way suitable to the product and the method of despatch. If there are any vehicular restrictions that will prevent delivery being made it is your responsibility to inform us so that alternative arrangements can be made. In order for us to process any insurance claim the item must be checked on delivery any delivery that is signed for either without checking or as 'unchecked' will invalidate the returns procedure and insurance.
Refunds & Returns

The item must be returned in its original packaging and condition and be fit for re-sale. All postage costs are the responsibility of the customer.
