We are unable to split orders/deliveries if any one item in an order is
not available from stock, indicated by 'Despatch due date / Awaiting stock / Stock expected'
- E&OE (Errors and Omissions Excepted).

from stock to send as one parcel. We reserve the right to collate multiple orders into one delivery if
going to the same address.
In each case, BEFORE you enter any payment details you have the option to upgrade the standard service for your order.

Orders received by us Monday to Friday by 3pm WILL NORMALLY BE DESPATCHED THE SAME DAY. During busy periods priority will be given to UPGRADED orders.

- If you have provided the correct e-mail address on your order you will receive an e-mail to confirm despatch (toward the end of the despatch day). For reasons beyond our control, AOL and Hotmail sometimes treat e-mail from watersportswarehouse.co.uk as spam. This means that if you do not
receive our email, it may be in your spam folder or you may have submitted your e-mail address incorrectly on your order.
We will always accommodate any amendments to your order received by e-mail or by phone prior to 3pm
(Mon-Fri), after which time we may not be able to make any adjustments to your order. However, do please ask

Orders which have not been upgraded we would normally expect to be received within 5 working days after placing your order. We do all we possibly can to ensure orders are despatched promptly but can not be held responsible for failures within the delivering services.
UPGRADED orders are sent on a next working day delivery service and for this reason it is advisable to have your order delivered to wherever you will be during normal working hours as it will require a signature to confirm safe receipt. Once an order is despatched it is in the hands of the various delivery services, either Carrier or Royal Mail to
deliver according to the service we use.
If your order is 'TIME CRITICAL' you have the option to UPGRADE the delivery service for your order at the time of ordering. In times of high demand on the delivery services eg: Christmas - please don't leave it too late to place your order. We do all we possibly can to ensure orders are
despatched promptly but can not be held responsible for failures within the delivering services. As delivery services are outside our control we are unable to provide any delivery guarantees.
We, therefore, can not accept any responsibility or consequential loss resulting from late/failed
delivery as this is entirely outside of our control.
