All images, product descriptions and specifications are for the purpose of giving an approximate description of the products. We always try to insure that this information is regularly updated. However, we advise that you seek technical advice from a qualified source prior to ordering and before any work is carried out.
We will do our utmost to ensure that colours of products represented in photos match as closely as possible to the physical product. However, some colours may vary slightly, this may be due to the way your monitor displays colour or the lighting of the image during the photography process.

Any items with express delivery and fast dispatch are usually shipped within 24hrs. However please note, if your order consists of items with express delivery and items with longer lead times your order will take longer to dispatch. We can only ship your order once all the items in your order are ready for dispatch.If you require items sooner please contact a member of the sales team as we may have alternative options we can offer you to help speed up your order.
Goods are subject to availability and delay in delivery of goods is sometimes out of our control.
We advise against booking any installers, or engaging in preparatory work until you are in full receipt of your goods and you have made an inspection of all items.
If you or whomever you have appointed to receive delivery are not available to receive the delivery on the assigned day and the courier has attempted to make delivery you are now liable for the additional re-delivery charge and goods will not be re-delivered until this fee has been paid.
If a pallet or parcel is visually damaged please detail all of this on the Proof of Delivery, we strongly suggest that you take photographs. If necessary you can reject the delivery but you MUST then contact Bathshack on the same day to report this.
Please use caution when un-wrapping the pallet(s) as items may have become unsteady during transit. It is advisable that 2 persons un-wrap the delivery.
We ask that you check your items upon delivery to the best of your ability before signing and accepting so that any issues with the delivery can be noted on your paperwork and resolved asap. We understand that not all orders can be checked straight away, in this instance we ask for the order to be checked within 48 hours and if any issues come to light that we are notified as soon as possible.
The delivery drivers are not insured to assist with the unpacking of deliveries. The delivery drivers are not insured to take their vehicles on roads other than public highways. If you live in a remote location and your home is not on a public road, e.g. if you live at the end of a farm track, then the driver will deliver the goods to the end of the public road only. You accept this when placing your order and if you refuse the delivery because of the driver being unable to drop at your door then you will be charged the actual delivery costs and collection fees. (This will apply to large or very large item orders arriving on pallets like bathroom suites or shower enclosures. Smaller parcels can be usually delivered on foot by the driver.)
All Pallet Deliveries will be kerbside delivery which means that items will be delivered to the nearest kerbside at the shipping address specified. Our kerbside pallet service offers delivery to the kerbside only, couriers will NOT be able to move pallets or goods inside the property.
Delivery dates are approximate and can sometimes be changed due to unforeseen circumstances or delays with suppliers getting items to us. For this reason, we strongly advise that no plumbers are arranged until the items have arrived with you and been fully checked to be suitable.
DO NOT arrange for a plumber to install the items until after they have been delivered and checked for discrepancies and to make sure they are undamaged.
In the unlikely event that an item has been damaged in transit please contact Bathshack within 48 Hours of receiving your delivery to ensure that you are provided with the replacement as soon as possible.

- Faulty Goods
All products supplied by Bathshack come with a 12-month retailer’s guarantee. Any guarantee periods longer than this quoted on the website for particular products are provided by the manufacturer. Once you contact us to make us aware of the fault we will liaise with the manufacturers and do all we can to get your issue resolved. Some suppliers ask that the customer go directly through them and not through us, if this is the case will advise you of all the information you will need to do so. For the avoidance of doubt if the manufacturer becomes insolvent you accept that the additional guarantee is lost. In many cases the manufacturers provide an after sales team of engineers who will come out and fix any problems that you may have with their products.
In the event that you are not satisfied with the service they provide then please contact us and we will endeavour to resolve any problems for you. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any problems.
If the product has been installed and used for an extended period of time and no fault is found, you will not be refunded and the product will be returned to you. If your item has been installed and a fault is reported to the manufacturer they may require a service agent to make contact and check the product onsite - if the product has not been installed to manufacturer’s instructions or has been damaged by misuse this will not be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty and you will be charged for the call out fee and any additional charge deemed by the manufacturer, this in no way affects your contract with Bathshack.
Please note: Clearance items are not eligible for return. Contact a member of the sales team if you need more information before purchasing.
