Delivery costs and courier options

Get everything you need to make your business a success and receive your items as quickly as possible with our delivery services across the mainland UK. Although the cost of standard delivery varies, orders over £450+VAT are offered with FREE drop-off delivery. What's more, you choose the delivery date that suits your needs. Please be aware that some exclusions apply (as stated below).

All deliveries are made to your registered business address or alternate company locations that are supplied to us. By default, delivery direct to the buyer’s customer (drop shipping) is not included within our standard delivery service and we reserve the right to decline such deliveries, or charge additional shipping and administration charges, as appropriate. 

As well as our own internal delivery vans, we use Amazon, Arrow XL, DPD, and APC (also known as Team C) courier services. Some items are also delivered directly from the manufacturer and their chosen courier. These partners will contact you the evening before/morning of your chosen delivery date to advise of a delivery window via text and/or email if provided (A.M / P.M; 3-hour slot or, for some smaller parcels, a 1-hour slot.)

Delivery-based services, such as appliance installation & disposal

Doing the hard work for you, we are pleased to offer an installation & disposal service for our freestanding domestic kitchen appliances (fridges, freezers, washing machines etc) at an additional fee. You can add this to your order on the basket page, by contacting your local branch or by ringing us on 0345 877 8989.

Before we arrive, please make sure that the old appliance is disconnected and in a fit state to be taken away. For example, a refrigeration appliance would need to be unplugged, free of water & fully defrosted. Similarly, a washing machine would need to be disconnected from all connections and ready for us to dispose of the item.

Keeping your staff and customers’ safety in mind, Gas and dual fuel cookers should be disconnected by a Gas Safe Register-approved engineer. If it is not ready to be taken away, we may not be able to remove your old appliance on the day.

If you think there may be a problem with connecting or disconnecting any appliances, either before or after delivery, please contact us as soon as possible to avoid any inconvenience and costs. If installation is selected for any domestic appliances, this covers connection to adjacent services reachable with the supplied leads/pipes and will not include any hard wiring. This may not be possible if the taps/pipes have seized up.

Refusing delivery

It is your responsibility to check your order at the point of delivery for shortages or obvious damage and to make note of this on the carrier's consignment paperwork when you sign for them. 

If you are unhappy to accept the goods for any reason, please refuse the delivery and either contact your local branch or call us on 0345 877 8989 as soon as possible. 

You must report any shortages or damage within 48hrs of taking delivery. Unfortunately, if this is not done, we will be unable to help.

Fraud prevention & security

Please note that we reserve the right not to deliver an order if we believe the address is not secure, for example to a communal postal address, PO Box or freight forwarding address. Don’t worry though, if this affects an order you place, we'll notify you as soon as possible. We also have additional procedures to ensure that our customers are protected from online fraud. Because of these, you may be contacted before your delivery date so that the checks can be fully carried out. We may place orders temporarily on hold if we are not able to reach you, so please ensure suitable telephone number(s) are provided as we would not contact you via email in this instance.

Faulty items

White goods

For kitchen appliances (white goods) warranty is handled by the manufacturer or the manufacturers nominated repair agent most local to you. The customer using the product is advised to contact the service number shown in the warranty documents supplied with the machine to make arrangements for a service call. 

Brown goods 

For TVs and associated products (brown goods) please contact our sales department who will talk through the problems you are experiencing to ascertain whether the product has a fault or if there is another reason for its behaviour. If the item needs changeover or repair it will need to be returned to us and we will do the rest.

Deliveries for in-store purchases (local deliveries)

We offer several different home installation and set-up services for local Hughes customers so that you can tailor the package to exactly what you need.
