FREE Delivery Offers

Our FREE UK Delivery offers may incur a supplement fee if you are located in a higher rate delivery area. The supplement fee is the cost charged to us by the couriers on top of the usual delivery amount. For example if your delivery charge is £18+vat for your area we discount the usual delivery cost of say, £12+vat meaning all you pay is £4+vat you therefore still benefit by the same amount from this great offer. The majority of UK mainland addresses have no supplement and your goods are delivered free of charge without supplement.

Late Delivery

HFE Signs Ltd cannot offer any insurance against late delivery by the courier. Most consignments do get delivered on time and are booked with the courier on a 24hr service for UK Mainland. It is a rare occurrence where items get misrouted or are delivered late for whatever reason, however this can happen so it is best to allow an extra day or two. The next day service is not guaranteed by the courier, and the courier will not offer any compensation for late delivery. HFE Signs Ltd will not be liable for any loss caused by a late delivery, whether it be direct loss or consequential loss.

Consequential Loss

HFE Signs Ltd cannot offer any insurance nor accept any liability for costs or damages that may occur due to late delivery, faults, errors or any problems in relation to our products. We strongly recommend goods are ordered in time to allow for delays with us or the couriers and to allow time for any errors that may occur during the printing process to be rectified. If your goods are ordered late and do not reach you in time for your purpose or you have arranged contractors and your goods arrive too late, are damaged or have a fault in anyway we can not offer any compensation for this.
