Postage Charges and Delivery Information
When ordering please choose the delivery option that you require from the drop down list in the shopping cart.
At Little Possums we pride ourselves on our fast despatch, we don't like to keep you waiting!
All our orders are normally posted out the next working day after the order is placed (working days are Monday to Friday inclusive, we don't post on Saturdays).
Please note that choosing Priority UK delivery will NOT necessarily mean next day delivery
Due to insurance restrictions we regret that we are unable to ship to countries outside the EU.
If despatch of your order will be delayed for any reason we will contact you with an estimated delivery date. If you do not want to wait we will refund you instead.
Occasionally certain items are not held as stock, in this case the item will be shipped directly to you from our suppliers.
Occasionally parcels can take longer than usual to reach their destinations, this is particularly true during the Christmas period and over bank holidays. In most cases parcels will turn up within a couple of weeks.
If your order has not arrived when expected please check with neighbours to see if a parcel has been left for you, and also check with your local sorting office. If you weren't in your postman should have left a card, but cards can easily be missed in a pile of junk mail.
On the rare occasion that a parcel is lost in the post we will be able to replace it for you. However please note that Royal Mail will not consider first class UK items to be missing until 15 working days after the despatch date. For international orders they are not considered to be missing until 25 working days after the despatch date.
Little Possums is VAT registered and VAT (Value Added Tax) is included in the prices shown on our website where applicable. The exact amount of VAT included will be shown in the shopping cart at the time of ordering. It will also be shown on the invoice which will be included with your order.
If you need to exchange your sling for a different size or colour for any reason this is fine, as long as the one that you return is in a re-saleable "as new" condition.
Please note that you will need to pay the Post Office or courier to return the item you wish to exchange, but we do not make any additional postage charges for sending out the replacement item.
Returns and Refunds
We hope that you will be completely satisfied with your purchase from Little Possums. However if you are unhappy with your purchase you may return it for a refund within 28 days. Please return your goods in
their original packaging with all the relevant instructions.
For this reason when returning an item for exchange or refund we strongly recommend that you obtain a Certificate of Postage from your Post Office. If you have proof of postage you will be able to claim some compensation from Royal Mail in the unlikely event of your return going astray. Please ask in your Post Office for more information.
Please include the receipt in with your return if you still have it. If not, then put a note in that includes: the name of the person who placed the order, the date the order was placed and the method of payment. This will help us to process the return more quickly. If we don't know where the return has come from it is very difficult to refund you!
Returns should be sent to:
We are unable to refund postage costs for returns unless the item is damaged or faulty. Also please note that if your item was sent by priority delivery we will not be able to refund the shipping costs for priority delivery, but will only refund you for the full value item/s that you return.
In the case of items being returned for a reason other than being damaged/faulty we will inspect all returned items carefully. If they are not in a reasonable condition we reserve the right to offer a partial, rather than full refund to cover our costs.
Once your return has been processed you will receive an email to the address you gave at the time of ordering, notifiying you that you have been refunded. For ease of admin we process returns in batches, usually once a week but in busy periods it can take longer. Please allow up to 14 days for your refund to be processed.
Damaged or faulty items
You have the right to cancel your order starting from the time you place the order and ending on the expiry of 7 working days starting from the day after the goods have been received. Please notify us of your intentions in writing (by email is fine) within the 7 day cooling-off period. We request that goods are returned as soon as possible and are in their original condition and packaging. Please note that you will be responsible for paying the delivery costs to return you item unless it is faulty (see above)
When returning goods it is advisable to obtain a certificate of postage. Please ask at your local Post Office for advice.
We want to help you get the best out of your sling or carrier. If you have any problems or need advice about how to use your sling please contact us and we will do our best to help you.
