We aim to despatch goods to arrive as close as possible to that date or a day before, taking account the delivery time, the weather conditions prevailing, whether any perishable items are included in the order etc. Unfortunately delivery on the requested date cannot be guaranteed – especially during the very busy time immediately before Christmas, although we will do everything we can to deliver on the date requested and have a very high success rate in achieving delivery on customers preferred date. If it must arrive by that date we would suggest you order and select a date a few days earlier, to allow for any delays or the recipient not being home when the delivery is attempted.

If nobody is at home........

If the recipient is not at home when the driver attempts delivery, the driver is instructed to use their discretion to leave the parcel with a neighbour, or in a safe place.  As deliveries are made mainly within working hours, please give some thought as to whether the recipient will be available for the delivery and consider the possibility of delivery to a work address.


Hospitals, Universities, business and work addresses....

For deliveries to hospitals, universities, colleges, military bases, work addresses etc., please be aware that the driver is required only to deliver to the address on the label – not directly to the recipient and we cannot be held responsible for delays incurred from the parcel being delivered to the address and being received by the recipient. Delivery to these locations is not available on Saturday.

Please check that hospitals will allow deliveries of food items or drink to the relevant ward and ensure the ward details are entered when completing the address details. For deliveries to blocks of flats, it is important that the driver is able to gain access for a card to be left or to attempt delivery. Unfortunately, we are unable to arrange delivery to PO Box or BFPO addresses or similar.


Returned, Redelivery or Redirection

The couriers will only hold the parcel for a limited time after an attempted delivery when a calling card has been left, and if the recipient does not respond to the card the parcel will be returned to us. If we are requested to re-send or redirect the parcel there may be additional charges to cover the cost of the parcel being returned, new delivery charges and replacement packaging and perishable items – this may be up to 50% of the original cost of the order depending on circumstances and contents. Alternatively, we may offer a partial refund if the gift is no longer required.

In the event of non-delivery within the UK, due to an incorrect address or recipient information supplied by the purchaser, or if the recipient specified by the customer refuses to accept the parcel, Clearwater Hampers reserves the right to make a charge of a minimum of 50% of the original order for re-directing or re-sending the order.

In the event that the purchaser should cancel the order after despatch, Clearwater Hampers reserves the right to refund up to 50% of the original order value. We are unable to refund the cost to you in returning any item unless the item was faulty.
