Terms & Conditions

In order to buy products on Boxtails UK Ltd website or use our web site, you must do so according to these terms and conditions. By registering on the website or purchasing through it you are agreeing to be bound by them. Boxtails UK Ltd reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions by updating this page.

1. Sales and Delivery

1.1 Delivery – Standard Delivery is £3.95 regardless of how many items or cases you order. We reserve the right to charge a higher delivery rate for certain areas in the UK, this will be displayed to you at the checkout. We will deliver your products using a courier service to anywhere in mainland UK as specified at the time of your order. Our current preferred courier service is ParcelForce or UPS/CSM and their delivery times are Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00pm. If you are not there to take possession of your delivery the driver may leave it with a neighbour, or they will leave a card with the information for you to arrange a more convenient delivery time or notify you where it can be collected from having taken it to a collection point near to the address. For issues with your delivery, please contact us on info@boxtails.co.uk so we can try to liaise on your behalf with our courier service.

1.2 Availability – If we have a limited availability product it may sell out in between you placing the order and dispatch. In that situation you are entitled to be refunded in full for your order, or we may offer a more expensive substitute for the product at no additional cost to you. If a substitution is required, you will be contacted first and given opportunities to choose the replacement or get a refund.
1.3 Customer satisfaction – If you are dissatisfied with our performance in any way, please contact our customer services department on info@boxtails.co.uk.At Boxtails UK Ltd., we aim to deal with all enquiries fairly, confidentially and quickly. We will always do our utmost to acknowledge your contact within 24 hours. We try to resolve most issues immediately, but where this is not possible, we will keep you informed about progress until a satisfactory resolution has been achieved. We are continually improving our service, but if you have any particular ideas or suggestions about how we can improve, please send them to: info@boxtails.co.uk.
1.4. Legal entity – Boxtails UK Ltd. is responsible for arranging the shipping and all customer services queries and will be your first point of contact for any questions you might have about your order.
1.5 Subscriptions – Once payment has been taken for a subscription box we are unable to refund or cancel that delivery. You are able to cancel your recurring subscription at any time before the next payment is taken, provided that all boxes that have been already paid for have been dispatched. For example, if you buy a subscription with the first 3 boxes prepaid, then you can’t cancel until after the third box has been dispatched. Please allow 2 working days before the next subscription payment is due (this is visible in your account) to cancel a subscription to allow us time to affect this and hold your subsequent orders. Subscription boxes will normally be dispatched shortly after payment is taken. Should your payment fail, you will be contacted to provide a new payment method. No deliveries will be sent out until payment issues are resolved. The nature of the subscription boxes means we cannot predict or guarantee the exact content of the boxes you receive under the subscription agreement, however, we will ensure that the number of cans/bottles and value remains consistent. While we will make an effort to take into account any feedback or requests from subscribers, this is not guaranteed as we generate a single box each month for each club to go to all members.

1.6 Limited Availability Items with Restricted Order Sizes – where we have exclusives or special releases, we may restrict the number of items that any individual can purchase in order to ensure that the product can be tried by as many people as possible. Where this is the case, the permitted order quantity will be displayed clearly on the item page at the time of buying. We may not be able to restrict the volume of items which you can place into your basket and process through to checkout, however, we reserve the right to analyse the purchases after special releases, and if you exceed the stated allowance we will refund you the difference but only ship the permitted quantities of items.

2. Prices and payment

2.1 All prices are quoted in pounds sterling and maybe per sachet, per bottle or per box, as marked. The prices include applicable VAT at the prevailing rate, unless otherwise specified. All delivery charges are additional.

2.2 We accept payment by all major credit cards.
2.3 Description and price of the goods – we make every effort to ensure that prices and descriptions of goods shown on our website are accurate at the time you place your order. The price of the goods will be as shown on the checkout page of our website when you placed your order, we will therefore charge you this amount. You must also pay a delivery charge for the goods as indicated on our website at the checkout page. In the unlikely event that the price shown on the checkout page is wrong, and we discover this before shipping your order, we are not required to sell the goods to you at the price shown. We always try and ensure that the prices of goods shown on our website are accurate, but occasionally genuine errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of the goods that you have ordered, we will let you know as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it.

2.4 Errors in processing payment – If the payment is processed, but there is an error which results in Boxtails UK Ltd. not receiving payment from the customer, Boxtails UK Ltd. reserves the right to reprocess the payment at a later date.

Our breakage rate is very low but if some or all of the bottles in a case are broken or spoiled when they are delivered you should notify us as soon as possible to allow us to assist in the most appropriate way. Accepting damaged parcels is recommended, in order for us to accurately determine with you the amount of damage and speed up any replacement deliveries.

You must contact our customer services department immediately on info@boxtails.co.uk.

6.3 Before accepting a full return for the reasons listed above, we will try to rectify the problem with your order by issuing replacement items or alternative constituent parts. Or we may enact a partial refund for the specific items or parts which are at fault. In the situation of spoiled goods, we will need to arrange the return of the goods in order for them to confirm the problem and we will need them to verify that the goods are spoiled before we’re able to issue a full refund.
6.4 Where a full return of an order is accepted due to the prescribed reasons in 6.2 you will be entitled to a full refund of the items and the original postage. Where we make arrangements to collect the goods, you must make them available to our courier in order to complete the return so we can then issue the refund.

As such, we cannot guarantee the condition of cans and bottles on arrival sufficiently that they will be pristine enough to satisfy a collector’s needs. Some scratches on labels and minor denting on cans is to be expected and we will not be able to accept refunds for purely cosmetic reasons unless labels are entirely unreadable and therefore the contents and product details are unclear.
6.8 Please contact us if you have a specific requirement regarding the cosmetic appearance of the bottle labels or cans in your order. We will try to take extra precautions for you, or check the cosmetic condition of the items before shipping out but this does not constitute any guarantee from us.

Any returns for reasons not covered by 6.2 will be refunded less any postage costs we have incurred and only upon safe receipt of the items and if the return is received by us within 10 days of the original delivery being made.7.
