Delivery & Postage
There is a lot of reading here, so the main take away is that we would prefer to hear from you if you have any questions or information at all, but MOST especially we want to hear from you if you feel that there is a shipment en route and you are concerned over the transit time or have any information regarding addresses etc.
Specific Regions outside the UK - General information below is our normal practice - IF there is anything more specific please scroll down to find your country related content
We use a variety of trusted couriers to deliver our goods, the courier we use is dependent upon the delivery address i.e. UK Mainland, Highlands & Islands, Europe & Rest of the World.
Delivery will be made to the address specified by you during the order process on the website. You can change this address with each order through the website.
We insure each purchase for the time it is in transit up until the time it is delivered to your specified delivery address. A signature is required for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you.
All our deliveries require a signature on receipt, however, ours is NOT a named delivery service, therefore anyone at the designated delivery address may sign for your delivery. Please ensure that an appropriate person is available to sign on the delivery day. If no one is at the address when delivery is attempted, the goods will be retained by the courier and a notification postcard left, you will have the option to re-arrange delivery or collect your order from the local depot. If this has not been undertaken within approx. 5 days the courier will attempt to redeliver if this is still unsuccessful the goods will be returned to Owen Barry.
Ordinarily, we only make deliveries to the order delivery address, with an appropriate signature. If you instruct us or our nominated courier to leave a delivery unattended at your address or at a nominated neighbour, OB expressly disclaims all liability which may arise by virtue of the delivery being lost, damaged or left unattended for a period of time. This includes but is not limited to theft, tampering, contamination and the result of weather damage.
Please note adverse weather conditions or other events outside of our reasonable control may result in an occasional late or non-delivery. If that is the case, we will endeavour to contact you as soon as we can to reschedule your delivery. In any event, our liability to you will be limited to the prices of the goods not delivered and the cost of delivery. Please also refer to Force Majeure In our full Terms & Conditions section.
Split deliveries: In an instance where all products are not available to ship at once OB are entitled to supply your purchases in several drops, we will endeavour to liaise with you to ensure any inconvenience is kept to a minimum – we will only charge one lot of postage per order.
When your order is despatched, we will send you an automated despatch email which will include a tracking number for your parcel.
