5. PASSING OF RISK

The risk in the goods shall pass to the Customer on delivery, as defined in clause 6.3 below.

6.1.1 DELIVERY DATE

Any date or period for delivery shall be considered as indicative only. It is our policy to try to despatch all orders within 7 (seven) days of receipt, and with 90% of orders being despatched the same day, we keep to our policy.

Each item has an estimate despatch time (details can be found on the products information page).  This is the average length of time that it takes us to despatch the order.  In addition to this, each order has an average 'delivery' time, which is the time it takes Royal Mail, or our chosen courier, to deliver the item. Details of the estimated delivery time are given when you check out.  If the total delivery time for the order exceeds 30 days, it is our policy to contact the customer and inform them of this.  If your order will not be received within 30 days you are given the choice to cancel your order for a full refund.

Five of Hearts Magic, cannot be held responsible for delays in the delivery caused by the manufacturer, courier, or any other third party.

6.1.2 DELIVERY DATE FOR GUARANTEED ORDERS

Orders placed using guaranteed delivery, have a slightly different policy.  If the order fails to reach you within the guaranteed time (whether it be a problem with the despatch or delivery), you are given the option for a full refund (in which case the order must be returned), or a refund on the postage (where the order may be retained).

6.1.3 DELIVERY DATE FOR ORDERS WITH OUT-OF-STOCK ITEMS

If any products in your order are not available at the time of order, you will be contacted with details of the items, and when they are expected to arrive in stock.  You are then given the choice of: 'removing' the items, and having the rest of the order despatched immediately; 'pausing' the items, having the rest of the order despatched immediately, and then the out-of-stock items delivered when they arrive back in stock (this option incurs extra postage); thirdly waiting for the out-of-stock items to return in-stock, and then having the whole order despatched as one; or fourthly, canceling the whole order. At busy times of year, where order deadlines are in place (at Christmas, or Halloween for example) where we have been unable to contact you about the problem, then as agreed before hand, we will either despatch the order with a suitable replacement, or send the remainder of the order without the out-of-stock items.  The policy in 6.1.1 still applies.

6.2 SHIPPING

Most orders are sent through Royal Mail (which may involve Parcel Force). Unless otherwise specified, all products are shipped by either First Class, Parcel Post, Special Delivery, International Standard or International DataPost.  Special Delivery (next day) orders must be signed for.

Some larger orders, or orders with guaranteed services, may be sent via a different courier.

The Customer must request any other delivery method they may require at the time of the order, and if we agree that this is a suitable method of delivery, goods will be shipped under Customer's responsibility as defined in clause 6.3.

6.3 PASSING OF RISK

6.3.1 Where a customer has opted for a Guaranteed Delivery option, the customer bears the risk of the goods once they have been signed for.  If the customer has opted for Standard Delivery, the customer bears the risk of the goods as soon as they have left the Five of Hearts Magic premises.

6.3.2 When an order is returned to Five of Hearts Magic, the customer bears the risk of the goods, and is held responsible for them until they are received by Five of Hearts Magic.
