Delivery Policy
We aim to dispatch all orders between 3 - 5 working days of receipt subject to payment clearance and stock availability. All goods are sent using DPD courier with tracking facilities within mainland UK.

We aim to fulfill all orders from stock. If any item(s) cannot be dispatched within a reasonable time the customer will be notified of the likely delivery date and invited to confirm acceptance of this or be granted a reimbursement for the value of that item(s).

Somebody will need to sign for your delivery unless you specify special delivery instructions in advance. If no one is available to take delivery from our couriers, a calling card will be left. If you do not contact the courier, a further delivery attempt will be made. After this point, they will hold the goods for 4/5 days so you can arrange to collect the goods from the DPD depot. If the courier is still unable to deliver after this point, the Goods will be returned to us. We will then contact you to re-arrange or cancel your order. Any charges incurred for failed delivery, return or re-delivery will need to be paid or will be deducted from your refund.

Shipping charges
All orders over £50.00 are delivered free of charge to mainland UK

Orders of £50.00 and below will incure a £4.99 postage and packing charge. There are different charges for Scottish Highlands, Isle of Man and Northern Island. Please contact us for more details, or see our shipping policy.

Orders

Your order is accepted and a contract is formed between Affordable Lighting and you when we dispatch the goods you have ordered and not before. A contract is not formed at the point in time that payment has been taken from you by Affordable Lighting, nor at the point in time that you receive an email from Affordable Lighting acknowledging receipt of your order. Until the goods are dispatched the order may not be accepted by Affordable Lighting or may be cancelled by you.
