Failed Deliveries

Failed parcel deliveries –

We send all of our items on a 'Leave Safe' service. This means our delivery drivers have the option to leave your parcel in a safe place or with a neighbour if you are not at home. Our couriers are no longer accepting signatures for parcels, but they will take a photograph of the parcel as proof of delivery, and provide us with the GPS co-ordinates so we can see where the delivery was made. 
On some occasions, the couriers will take your local parcel to a Parcel Shop if there is no safe place to leave it and ask you to collect the parcel yourself. 
If you do not want your parcel to be left in a safe place or with a neighbour, please contact our Customer Service team on 01904 696933 before ordering so we can discuss alternative delivery options. 

The couriers will attempt delivery a total of three times before returning the parcel to us. If a parcel is returned to us due to no-one being at the delivery address or no safe place/neighbour to leave the parcel with, we’ll assume this is no longer required and issue you with a refund. 

If you wish to discuss any of the above before ordering, please contact our Customer Service department on 01904 696933 and select Option 2. We are open Monday – Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm. 


Failed pallet deliveries - 

If your order contains items weighing over 30kg, it will be delivered on a pallet which is subject to a surcharge.

Please make sure you make arrangements to have someone at the delivery address to accept the pallet delivery. If you can’t guarantee someone will be there and you’re happy for the driver to leave the pallet without a signature, please let us know straight after placing your order by calling our Customer Service department on 01904 696933 or emailng with your order number. 

If you are not at home to accept delivery of your pallet and you have not left us instructions to leave the pallet without a signature, we will need to rearrange delivery for another day. If this happens, there will be redelivery fee - this fee will be the same amount delivery charge you have already paid. This is the fee we are charged by our couriers for a redelivery. 

If you are not in to accept delivery of the pallet and do not wish to pay the redelivery fee, the pallet will be returned to us and you will be refunded for your order, with a deduction £40.00 for the return to sender fee we will incur.

If you need to request a certain delivery date, please call us immediately after placing your order, and we may be able to arrange this for a charge of £10.00.

For every failed delivery or pallet returned to us, we are charged by the couriers. Unfortunately, due to the number of these charges we receive we have had to implement these fees.

Direct dispatch plants under 30kg will be subject to a £7.20 delivery surcharge*. Plants over 30kg, i.e 30ltr Lilies will be subject to a £50 delivery surcharge*.These are sent directly from our supplier make sure the plants you receive are fresh and in great condition. There is no limit on how many you can order for one delivery charge. This is in addition to any other carriage costs for items sent directly from Bradshaws Direct.

Carrier Services

Bradshaws use a variety of carriers depending on the size of the parcel and shipping address, including DPD, DHL and soon we will be using Evri for small parcels. 

Our couriers are no longer asking customers to sign for their parcels, instead they take a photograph as proof of delivery. All of our parcels are sent on a leave safe service, meaning the parcel can be left in a safe place or with a neighbour. If you would prefer to ensure the parcel is delivered directly to you, please call our Customer Service team who can arrange to send your order on a different delivery service.

Returns Information

Changing your mind:

We want all of our customers to be happy with their purchases, but we understand sometimes you might change your mind. If that happens, don’t worry, just get in touch with our Customer Service team on 01904 696933 and we can arrange for you to return your unwanted item. You have 30 days from date of purchase to do this, and the item must be unused and in its original packaging. We’ll only cover the return postage costs on faulty or damaged items but this has to be agreed with Customer Services first - please contact us before returning an item. Custom Made items are exempt from this - please see below for further information. 

Returns & Replacements

Faulty Items:

Before returning a faulty item to us please contact our Customer Service department on 01904 696933. 

If the item is less than 6 months old we will arrange for a courier to collect* the faulty item and test the product once it arrives with us. For products over 6 months old, you will need to arrange the return yourself. We recommend ensuring you have the necessary insurance to cover the cost of the item you're returning, as any items returned to us that are lost or damaged in transit will be your responsibility to claim through your chosen courier service.  

Please make sure you have followed all of the maintenance checks necessary before reporting a fault. If an item we have collected is returned to us and it is not faulty there will be a £15.00* charge to cover the cost of the collection and for the redelivery of the working item. We request all items returned to us are clean, dry and free of lime scale. If an item is returned and the request hasn’t been followed it will be returned to you at a charge of £15.00. We will not reimburse return postage charges for any items sent back to us without confirmation from our Customer Service department.

Any faulty items will be replaced or refunded within 14 working days of receiving the item back to our warehouse.

*This applies to mainland UK only. Collection and redelivery charges to Highlands, Islands, Ireland and other areas will be more.
