Delivery Policy

Our delivery charges are based on weight to be able to offer the best price available.

No qualifying criteria is currently available for Free Deilivery.

The cost for up to 2 kilos, to UK Mainland addresses excluding the Scottish Highlands is £5.

Deliveries must be signed for. If no one is available to receive your order at the time of delivery, the courier driver will leave notification of the attempted delivery and return the goods to the regional depot for your area, from where you will be responsible for arranging collection or possible redelivery. Whittaker’s Schoolwear operate this policy to provide formal proof with respect to goods being despatched and safely received. Delivery will only be made to the delivery address specified at the time the order is placed. For customer convenience Whittaker’s Schoolwear allow customers to specify a different address for delivery at the time of order. For example a lot of customers specify that goods are to be delivered to their place of work or to a neighbour who they know will be available to accept delivery.

Our Couriers will attempt delivery once and will leave calling cards if the order was not delivered. However it is your responsibility to rearrange a new delivery day and if no contact is made within approximately one week from first delivery attempt.

Discount Interiors recommend that you do not book decorators, until you have the order in your possession.
