How much is delivery?
At Simply Electricals we aim to give customers the most cost effective service possible. Our standard delivery solution is free of charge on many items to many parts of the UK mainland. However deliveries to customers located in the ULEZ / Congestion zones within London will incur a £15 delivery cost.
What are the ULEZ / Congestion Zones?
The ULEZ (Ultra Low Emissions) / Congestion Zones are an area within central London in which we are required to pay a fee for each of our delivery vans operating in these areas per day.
When is delivery?
We deliver 5 days a week Monday - Friday. Standard delivery items are normally delivered between 3 - 7 business days. Some products are available quicker, please check with our online chat service. Special order items and large appliances can take between 7 - 14 business days to be delivered.
Can I have delivery to another address?
If you're a first time customer it is recommended all deliveries are made to the billing address. If you're in the process of moving to a new property or need delivery to a business address then please email after your order is place to advise. All items ordered through finance have to be delivered inside billing property address via our own delivery team.
Do you offer timed delivery?
Yes, if you live within 45 miles of our warehouse based in Bolton Lancashire. We will give you a 2 hour window free of charge unlike the larger multiple retailers who charge for this service. If you live outside of this area then we don't currently offer timed deliveries. However, our shipping agent will contact you to confirm a delivery day once the item is ready to be delivered. On the day of the delivery you will receive a phone call from the driver giving you an approximate time based on traffic conditions.
Can I delay my delivery?
Yes, if you would like to delay your delivery until a given date beyond our standard delivery service e.g. returning from holiday, you can let us know by using our online chat service or, email us quoting your order reference number. Please note we will aim to deliver as close as possible to the specified date although we cannot guarantee delivery on the requested date. Closer to the delay date we will be in contact to confirm a new date for delivery.
I've missed or unable to take delivery?
If we attempt make delivery and no one is at home or the delivery cannot be made for reasons not made clear to us prior to delivery, then we reserve the right to charge for re-delivery or a return back to our premises.
