Terms and Conditions
Welcome to the Berrys Gifts website terms and conditions for use.
Please note that we may revise these terms and conditions at any time by updating this posting. You should check this Website from time to time to review the then current terms and conditions, because by using this website, they are binding on you.
You will be able to access most areas of this Website without registering your details with us. If you choose to register at the checkout stage, you may later access and manage your details, using the MY ACCOUNT link at the bottom of the page
Ordering from us
To ensure the utmost security when using your credit/debit cards, all orders are processed through Secure Hosting, using highly secure 128bit SSL encryption.
When you place an order with us, you will be given the opportunity to check the details and correct any errors at the checkout stage, after which your payment will be taken. Once your order has been received we will send you a confirmation email, detailing the products you have ordered.
Please note that promotional discounts cannot be used on Clearance items, Seconds, Special Purchases or already discounted products.
We reserve the right to refuse any orders in the unlikely event that stocks are not available, where the incorrect price has been quoted on the website or where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment.
Payments may be made by Visa, Mastercard, Debit Mastercard, Maestro, Visa Delta or JCB cards.
We regret that we are not currently able to accept payments by cheque.
Please note that orders can only currently be despatched to the UK.
We aim to despatch all orders within 1 to 2 working days* (Monday to Friday) of receipt. For most orders delivery is via Royal Mail, but larger items/orders will be sent by courier, and will take a couple of extra days. Deliveries to Northern Ireland/Scottish Highlands/Offshore Islands may take a few days longer than the timescales stated above.
*At busy times especially in the run up to Christmas, we reserve the right to extend these despatch times, but wherever possible will notify customers of likely delays.
If no one is in to accept the delivery, a card will be left advising you how to arrange a further delivery or where to collect the parcel from. In the event that an undelivered parcel is later returned to us, we will contact you to arrange re-delivery, but there will be a further charge involved. If you are sending a parcel to someone else’s address, please ensure they know to expect it.
If you have not received your order, or a card advising of a failed delivery, within 10 days of placing your order, please contact us.
Delivery charges are as follows:
Delivery charges are based on the weight of your order and how quickly you need it.
We offer the choice of our slower Standard Delivery at around £4.95 or less for an individual item, or Royal Mail's 1st Class service for more urgent items.
To see the delivery costs please add the item(s) to your basket and the delivery charge will be shown in a separate box below. You do not need to sign in to see our charges.
FREE Delivery is available on orders over £75.00
Returns and cancellation policy
We hope you will be happy with your purchases from us, but if for any reason you wish to return an item, you can do this within 14 days of receipt, for a full refund or exchange.
Items should be returned unused and in their original packaging and the original order number must be quoted clearly on the package - failure to do so may delay a refund being made.
The costs of returning any unwanted goods to us shall be borne by you and for your own peace of mind we recommend using "Recorded Delivery". Refunds will only be credited to your payment card once the goods have been received and checked.
Please note that we will not refund any extra services paid for, eg. Gift-wrapping.
You may cancel your order at no charge, anytime up to the point of despatch.
Faulty or incorrect goods
In the event that an item received is damaged or incorrect, please contact us within 3 days of receipt, to obtain a Returns Authorisation Number and stating whether you would prefer a replacement or a refund.
This number must be written on the returns address label, and goods returned by the cheapest method. Please obtain a proof of posting and receipt. Please note that we will only refund return postage costs when a Returns Authorisation Number has been obtained and a receipt for the postage is sent to us.
We reserve the right to make an additional charge to your payment card where a replacement has been sent and the incorrect/faulty goods have not been returned within 14 days.
These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights in relation to faulty or misdescribed goods, details of which can be obtained from Consumer Direct (the Government's consumer advice helpline) or your local Trading Standards Office.
Our product descriptions and photographs are designed to give as much information as possible to help you make your gift selection, and whilst we endeavour to ensure that all the information is correct, we cannot guarantee that the website is without errors.
Please note that all measurements are approximate and that colours may appear different to the actual product on some browsers/computers.
Where items are handmade or hand finished they may have slight variations in colour, design or finish - this is a feature of these products and should not necessarily be viewed as a fault.
All prices are shown in pounds sterling (£). As we are not registered for VAT, our prices do not include a VAT charge. We reserve the right to change our prices without prior notice Additional charges (over and above the cost of the product) will be made for postage and packing and for services such as gift-wrapping.
Any complaints should in the first instance be raised by contacting Customer Services, preferably by email, with details of your order number, product and issue.
