Terms & Conditions

Enquiries & telephone credit card orders

If you prefer not to order online or have some questions, our helpful and knowledgeable staff are available to answer enquiries and take orders on 020 8993 7334, every weekday from 9.00am to 5.30pm and on Saturdays (October to December only) from 10.00am to 4.00pm. Outside of these times please leave a message on the 24 hour answerphone. Fax: 020 8993 7335. You may order anytime online at www.braybrook.co.uk

Delivery

Due to the valuable nature of our products, many of our deliveries require a signature and will be sent by Royal Mail Recorded Delivery or Special Delivery if requested on order form. We strongly recommend the use of Special Delivery for high value items as this is both insured and easier to track in transit.

Delivery timings

The majority of orders are despatched within 48 hours of receiving your order and payment. However, in the circumstances of a piece being out of stock we will give you an estimated delivery time when you place your order. We only take payment for goods at the time of despatch (except for engraving, see below) Special commissions may take up to 60 days, but you will be advised at the time of ordering.

Returns

If you are not satisfied with any product, for any reason, simply return it to us, ideally within 14 days, in its original condition for a refund or a replacement. Obviously we appreciate that in the run up to Christmas you may be buying well in advance and presents may not be opened until weeks later - in which case just return items to us as soon as practical in January. Please pack carefully. We do not refund postage on returns for exchange or refund.

Made to order & engraving conditions

For made to order and some engraved items, full payment in advance is required. Our normal full refund returns policy does not apply to specially commissioned pieces or items from the catalogue which have been engraved or modified to meet customer requirements. In the circumstance that work on the piece has commenced or been completed, we guarantee a minimum 20% refund. This may be greater if the silversmith is able to recover all or part of the work undertaken, and will be at our discretion.

Damage in transit or faulty items

In the case of delivery damage or an item being found faulty, please try to inform us within 48 hours of receipt (by telephone or email) and arrange for the item and any damaged in transit packaging to be returned to us in the condition received. In this circumstance, the item will be replaced or refunded and your postal expenses refunded.

All sizes and weights given are averages. As many pieces are handmade, slight variations from the examples shown in the catalogue are possible. Natural materials such as horn, wood and mother of pearl do vary in colours and patterns. Prices shown in our mail order catalogue are valid until the date quoted in the terms on the order form page. All prices online and in the printed catalogue include VAT at  the prevailing rate (currently 20% Jan 1st 2011).
