How does it work?
UPS have signed up a network of retail outlets, such as 'open all hours' newsagents, grocery stores and garages many of which operate extended opening hours including evenings and weekends.
At the time of ordering you can choose a convenient UPS Access Point - either close to home, work or perhaps on your route home.
You can track the status of your order and track UPS delivery progress from our website. Delivery to your chosen UPS Access Point is usually made the next working day after despatch in the UK.
When your parcel has arrived at your chosen UPS Access Point you will be emailed & texted by UPS with a message to say that your parcel is ready for collection - it is obviously really important that you have given us a valid email address and mobile phone number!
Collecting your parcel.
When collecting your parcel you will need to prove your identity with either:-
If someone else is collecting on your behalf, he/she needs to bring your photo ID based on the above criteria, as well as show his/her own driver's licence, passport, foreign national or military ID.
The UPS Access Point will record their signature, name, type of ID presented, and the number of each ID for record purposes.
You have 10 calendar days to collect from your UPS Access Point location. After the 10th day, your parcel will be sent back to Connevans Limited. Once returned, a £6.00 inc VAT standard return fee will be deducted from the refund amount. The original shipping and handling charge is non-refundable.
UPS Access Point is currently available in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Netherlands and Spain.

'Do you part ship orders?' Rarely, if we send part shipments you will be emailed and it will be noted on the advice paperwork.
'Can I have goods shipped to an alternative address?' Yes, this is an option at the checkout stage.
'I have just placed my order and now realise that I wish to change it, what do I do?' No problem, our website has a half hour waiting time after ordering during which you can log back on and change your order. In the evenings and at weekends the time is extended to 11.30pm. After this holding time please contact customer services.
Please contact us directly if you have used 'Checkout by Amazon'.

'What happens if I am out when my parcel arrives?' The delivery company should leave you a card telling you who to contact in order to get your parcel. In the UK ParcelForce are able to allow you to collect from your local post office. Please note that we cannot accept instructions such as 'leave in greenhouse'.
'Can I request a specific day delivery?' No, however there is a free typing 'Comments' field when you are checking out and you can ask us to ship after a specific date.
'Do you deliver parcels on Sundays?' No.
'Why do you have a minimum Shipping & Order Processing Charge?' Connevans is primarily a wholesale trade organisation supplying education and health authorities. Unlike many trade suppliers we do not produce an inflated retail price list for private individuals and we do not have a minimum order value. Our shipping and order processing charge simply reflects the cost of processing low value mail orders - please judge us on the overall cost.
In the United Kingdom the Consumer Rights Directive (CRD) gives a customer the right to cancel up to 14 calendar days from the date of delivery. To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel your order by a clear statement in a 'durable medium' (eg email, letter or fax) within the 14 calendar day period, in this case the original standard delivery cost will be refunded but not the cost of return.
If you wish to exercise your right of cancellation you are obliged to take reasonable care of the products while in your possession.
You must return the goods to us, at Connevans Limited, Bridge House, 1 Nutfield Road, Merstham, Surrey RH1 3EB, UK, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your order cancellation to us. As mentioned previously you will have to bear the cost of returning the goods. When you return any products to us, we will not be responsible for any loss or damage to them in transit.
We may make a deduction from the refund for loss in value of any goods supplied if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling from you other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
We will make the refund without undue delay, and not later than 14 days from when we receive the returned goods. We will make the refund using the same means of payment as you used for the initial payment.
To give you further peace of mind, orders from Connevans Limited are placed with the extended assurance that if you find an item unsuitable and return it to us outside the CRD 14 day statutory period but within 30 days of invoice, we will be pleased to refund the cost of the product - providing it is returned to us in resaleable condition with proof of purchase and a completed returns form. Certain items are excluded for hygiene reasons as noted on the product page.
Our definition of resaleable condition includes being returned with the original packaging and in a tidy and clean condition. The original delivery charge will not be refunded - the cost of returning a product is the responsibility of the customer unless it was received faulty or damaged.
We do not offer a loan or trial service and our offer of refund does not apply if you have used the product other than to assess whether it is satisfactory. We reserve the right to make a repackaging charge or refuse a refund if the product is not returned to us in a tidy and clean condition.
Items not covered by our extended 30 day return policy: items ordered by special request, products excluded for hygiene or other reasons as noted on the product page and goods ordered against our advice.
We try our best to process returns within a week of receipt.
Please note that we will make a standard UK £18 (£15 ex VAT) administration charge to cover the processing and cost of returning items to you, if sent to us outside our 30 day returns period.
Connevans naturally accept no responsibility for loss of or damage to a customerʼs parcel until it has been safely received at our factory. Customers are advised to return equipment adequately packed and covered by appropriate insurance. Packing material is available for purchase if required.
