Important Shipping and Returns Notice Coronavirus-19 update

We are currently operating Ecommerce despatches as normal.

Guernsey is operating on a C19 free basis but supply chain to / or within your destination country may be affected

You will get your order, but it may take longer than normal. Please bear with us as the world adapts to the daily changing situation that is out of our control.

Shipping

Delivery charges and timescales vary depending on the number of products ordered, the service you select and the delivery address. You’ll find full details of our delivery charges under the ‘Delivery’ section of our website. 

Delivery & dispatches:

We aim to pick & despatch all orders within 24 hours of receiving your order.

Please refer to the Delivery section of our website for more details.

There are various options through courier companies for re-arranging delivery if the first attempt has not been successful.  You are advised to select the option for delivery which allows you or someone else to be at your address to sign for your package if you are not going to be there, to avoid the need for re-delivery where possible.

Please note that certain delivery options may be subject to alternative delivery charges, restrictions and or timescales. If delivery cannot be made to a customer due to the customer not being present at the address at the time allotted by the carrier, or if any customer refuses to accept the products on delivery, Le Tricoteur Guernsey Ltd reserves the right to charge the cost for returning products to the relevant Le Tricoteur Guernsey Ltd returns centre for the order.

Holiday deliveries:

Please note during national holiday periods (Easter / Christmas / Bank Holidays) delivery and dispatch will be slower. Our warehouse and all Courier services also deserve a break with their families and often we rely on a skeleton staff of eager beavers.

Products purchased on the Le Tricoteur Guernsey Ltd site may only be delivered to the following areas:

Mainland United Kingdom, Non-Mainland United Kingdom, Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and most ROW countries. If we encounter and shipping issues due to local supply chain disruption we will contact you using the email you have submitted as your contact email.

Delivery Problems

Failure to deliver:

Any failure to deliver, or very late delivery far exceeding expected delivery times during fine weather must be reported to our Customer service team as soon as possible.

No claims notified to us more than thirty (30) calendar days from the date of confirmation of your order will be taken into account.

This does not include missed attempted deliveries 

Where the supply of your product(s) is delayed or prevented for reasons beyond our control (for example; higher than anticipated demand / or customer error in delivery address / or we have had all freight cut off due to bad weather – we are a small island after all, with no road services linking us to the mainland) we will make every effort to keep you informed but shall be under no liability to you for such delay or failure. For the avoidance of doubt, this paragraph does not exclude or effect in any way any statutory right that you have to cancel an order when a product is delayed or not provided.

We offer a range of services including Standard Delivery (untracked) / and DHL courier services that includes tracking*

Standard Delivery (NOT TRACKED - buyer is responsible for lost items that we have proved to despatch from our contract records with Guernsey post) is only applicable in the UK, Isle of Man, Guernsey & Jersey and can be used for all items 

DHL is the other safer option

Standard Delivery (NOT TRACKED - buyer is responsible for lost items that we have proved to despatch from our contract records with Guernsey post) can be used for small items like accessories for ROW

ROW uses DHL only for all garments 

For all deliveries, we offer a door-to-door service and there must be someone at the address in normal working hours to receive the delivery. Sometimes a work address is a better option for this reason.

We will deliver the package to the address but not person-to-person, so please guarantee a trusted person will be there to receive the package.
