CUSTOMER CARE

At Avabird Crafts we aim to treat our customers as we like to be treated ourselves so don't like "small print", but to comply with the EC Distance Selling Directive and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we're required to show our standard terms and conditions of sale before accepting any orders. You should note that your statutory rights under the current consumer protection laws are not affected.

Contact: We will contact you in connection with your order and keep you well informed should we have any difficulties providing you with the specific goods purchased.
Orders will be processed upon full payment. While we keep strict eye on stock levels in the event that an item is ordered and it is not available or temporarily out of stock you will be notified immediately.

 

Delivery: We will e-mail you to confirm when your order has been posted, but obviously we do rely on Royal Mail to deliver your goods, reliability is generally good but ultimately beyond our control. Therefore, if your parcel does not arrive within 10 working days of your shipping notification please let us know via e-mail at enquiries@avabirdcrafts.com .As soon as we're aware of the delay we can investigate and if necessary offer a refund or despatch a replacement parcel providing the selected goods are available for despatch.
For items being collected in person please wait for a confirmation email with suitable collection times.

 

Returns/Refunds: We are almost certain that you will love your products, however,

If you find the goods are faulty, incorrect or that you have made an error we will exchange or refund but you must notify us within 7 days.

For fabric orders, fabric must be in original selling condition (not cut, not washed, not damaged).

Clothing/bunting must not show signs of wear, be washed or damaged.

Return postage is at Buyer’s charge unless goods are found faulty. We suggest that you send your return with proof of postage as we will not be responsible in case it is lost in transit.

Once the goods have been returned in as-new condition at your own cost we will process the refund minus any shipping costs associated with the order. Refunds will be made via original payment means.

Cancellation: We are pleased to offer a fair and equitable cancellation policy which is in addition to your statutory rights.
Whilst every effort will be made to accept the cancellation this can only happen if cancellation is made prior to any cutting of fabric or an order made to order. If cutting of fabric or production of other products has begun then 50% deposit will be kept.
