As we are a UK based business dispatching items to Ireland we have seen an increase in questions relating to brexit and delivery. We are still operating and delivering as normal, and any import fees are already included in our price. Other popular questions are answered below:
Are you still delivering?
Yes, we are still delivering as normal.
What are my consumer protections?
You consumer protections are the same as buying from a company based in Ireland.
Will my goods be held up at customs?
We do not expect there to be any hold up of your goods at customs.
Will I have to pay customs duty?
No, all duty is included in our price so there are no additional charges.
What happens about VAT?
It is already included within our price.
What if I want to return goods?
Our returns process remains the same. You will not receive a refund for any customs taxes paid but won’t need to pay again on replacement orders.
Will warranties be honoured?
Yes, any warranties will be honoured as usual.
In these unprecedented times we want to let you know we are doing everything possible to support our staff, families, customers and country.
