Delivery

 Standard Delivery 

For items which are up to a shoe box in size, we do make every effort to dispatch in 48 working hours. Items which are larger are generally dispatched within 7-10 working days as finishing and packaging work may take significantly longer.

During the busiest times of year (i.e. Christmas) this may take longer due to circumstances beyond our control. We will endeavour to contact or inform you whenever any items fall outside this 7-10 working day range or if an item becomes unavailable, due to another local works or artist for which we rely upon them for all or component parts of a product. 


Next Day Delivery 

We have an Express Delivery option (for items ordered before 12pm) which will be despatched on the same day on a next day working day service. This means your order should arrive on the next working day after the order was placed. This option is available on selected products on the website, for any without this option you will need to enquire over the phone for availability. Even if orders are despatched on a next working day service, we cannot guarantee that the delivery will be made, delays arising with the courier or Royal Mail are outside of our control and are not completely unavoidable.

If no one is in to sign/accept the parcel, this could mean the parcel is undeliverable. Occasionally at the time of packing we may discover a product is unavailable for next day delivery, we will notify you of this as quickly as possible.

Next day delivery is only available to mainland UK addresses (this does not include the Scottish Highland's or Island's, Ireland, Scilly Isle's, Channel Island's or Isle Of Man).

Personalised Delivery

Checking Goods for damage and notifying Black Country Metal Works.
For small deliveries that arrive with carriers you agree to open all boxes and thoroughly check the goods for damage and notify us of any damage within 7 days of the delivery. If we are not notified of damage within 7 days we are unable to claim from either the manufacturer or the carrier. You agree to indemnify us in full for any losses we suffer as a result of your failure to notify us within 7 days. For large deliveries you agree to check the goods for damage before signing the (GDN) delivery note. If you sign for the goods, even if you write the words "Unchecked" or similar on the delivery note, then you are accepting that the goods arrived in good condition and later claims for damages will not be considered. If the driver refuses to wait while you check the goods then you must refuse to accept the delivery and email sales@blackcountrymetalworks.co.uk with the details as soon as possible. If someone else is signing for the goods on your behalf you agree to advise them that the goods must be checked and you accept full responsibility for any loss or damage if they sign on your behalf and fail to check. You agree to indemnify us in full for any losses we suffer as a result of you or your agent accepting goods and signing a delivery note without thoroughly checking the goods for damage.
