Terms & Conditions

Delivery Terms

A signature is required at the point of delivery for all orders. Should there be no one to accept delivery, the parcel will be sent back to your local postage centre and you will be left a card detailing how to arrange re-delivery or collection. If the carrier does not hear from you within 7 days, they will return the parcel to us.

We do not accept responsibility for any delays in the postal service or for undelivered goods and strongly advise customers to select the "Special Delivery - Guaranteed Next Day" option, which includes a Parcel Tracking Service and Insurance. Parcels that are ‘Returned to Sender’ due to incorrect address information or non-collection will be charged an additional postage amount to resend the item. The additional postage will be determined on the postage originally paid. 

If an item has been delivered and has obtained a proof of delivery we have fulfilled our legal obligation. Jewel First LTD shall be under no liability for any delay or failure to deliver the products within estimated timescales. Risk of loss and damage of products passes to the customer on the date when the products are confirmed as delivered. Parcels sent using the address given on the order will be deemed to be safely delivered once a signature has been obtained by the courier.

If this is not the case, the customer will have to open a case against the courier.
