When will my order be delivered?
An approximate delivery date is given for each product that you order. Very occasionally, circumstances beyond our control can delay this date. If this happens, we will endeavour to keep you informed. We cannot, however, accept liability for any loss or inconvenience that may result from the delay. When your products are ready for delivery, we will contact you to arrange a suitable day and time. We deliver Monday to Friday (9am-3pm) – a more specific time of delivery is not available. For W, SW, SE, WC, E, N & NW postcodes a door to door courier service is also available. This service is normally able to provide a delivery within a two hour time slot, but is subject to traffic conditions. This service may attract a surcharge, which our sales team is happy to advise about. Our delivery team will deliver the products to the door only, please inspect them carefully to ensure you are satisfied. You will then be asked to sign our Proof of Delivery note, accepting the goods. If someone else is accepting delivery on your behalf, it is very important that they are fully aware of the product details. If we have agreed a delivery date, and you are out when we arrive, we can reschedule a delivery for the next available date. There will be a charge for the subsequent delivery, even if the first delivery was free.Back to top

What is your WEEE policy?
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations introduced by the Euopean Union we are obliged to post the following for your information. WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations. Each EU Member State now has a legal obligation to minimise the disposal of WEEE in landfill sites. The broad aim of the WEEE regulations is to address the environmental impacts of electrical and electronic equipment when it reaches the end of its life. We all have a responsibility to contribute to the reuse, recycling and other forms of recovery of WEEE under these Regulations. Over 75% of waste electrical goods end up in landfill, where lead and other toxins contained in the electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination which can lead to negative effects on human health and the environment. Electrical and Electronic Equipment that was made after 13th August 2005 should display the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on the packaging or product. The purpose of the symbol is to encourage householders to dispose of their WEEE separately from household waste. Back2 International Limited offer our customers free in-store take back on a like for like basis when you purchase a new product from us. You can return your WEEE to us within 28 days of your purchase of the new product.
