Description of Goods
We describe our products as accurately as we can. Any error or omission in any information on the site or document issued by us shall be corrected provided that the correction does not materially affect the Contract of Sale. We or our suppliers may, from time to time and without notice, change the Goods in order to comply with any applicable statutory requirements provided that such changes do not materially affect the nature or the Price of the Goods.
All of our products have all been chosen for their suitability for the allergy market but unfortunately we cannot guarantee that all our products are suitable for all customers since sensitivities are so individual. Although our ingredients are checked on a regular basis, some may change unexpectedly. Please therefore carefully check the label before use. It is important to check all ingredients on the packet or bottle before opening as opened products cannot be returned. Images not necessarily to scale.
If the products ordered by you are not available, we will contact you and offer you the option of either ordering alternative Goods or cancelling your order. If we are unable to contact you within 28 Working Days the Contract will be deemed cancelled and any sums you have already paid to us in respect of the Goods ordered will be refunded in full.
Our delivery charges are broken down into:
* Standard Delivery and Next Day charges to the following postcodes including the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, Northern Ireland and anywhere off mainland Britain may be increased. This includes the following postcodes: FK17-99, G83, HS1-9, IV1-28, IV33-51, IV55-56, KA27-28, KW all, PA20-48, PA60-78, PH18-26, PH30-44, TR21-TR25, ZE1-3, BT all, IM all, JE all, GY all. We will notify you if your order incurs any increased charges. Because this cannot be automated at the Check Out your order will be confirmed at the £4.50 or £7.50 rate and you will be notified of the real charge before your order is processed. The Next Day Delivery to these areas is actually a 48 hr (2 day) delivery.
We do not deliver to America or Canada but will be happy to deliver to an address of your choice in the UK for onward shipment to North America.Charges to the Islands and Highlands of Scotland, Northern Ireland and anywhere off the mainland may incur an extra charge if your order needs to be sent via courier. We will notify you by email or phone if this is the case.
Delivery Charges for Paint
All paint is mixed up to order. If you are ordering a large amount of paint, we suggest you order cautiously as paint may not be returned.
The delivery charge on paint and all Ecos products is £4.95 for 1-18 litres, £9.90 for 19-36 litres and £14.85 for 37-54 litres. If you are ordering more than 54 litres the additional charge will be £4.95 for every 1-18 litres. The delivery charge will be calculated automatically at the Check Out. However, if you require delivery to the Scottish Highlands, Northern Ireland or anywhere off the mainland, we will advise you of the delivery charge before sending your paint. Please allow 3-4 working days for delivery although most orders will arrive in 24-48hrs. Please remember to order carefully as paints are mixed up to order and cannot be returned.
Most orders are despatched within a few days and many go out within 24 hours of ordering. Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee the time of delivery and cannot accept responsibility for delays that are beyond our control. If you require goods to arrive at a specific time, please make sure you order well in advance. If you fail to collect your package or fail to arrange for it to be redelivered it will be returned to us and we will be charged for this return. Once we have received the uncollected package we will inform you, usually by email, and ask you how you would like it resent. We will charge you for the original posting and the returns fees (typically £7.50 each way for one parcel). Our prices include postage from us to you one time only. We must be notified of receipt of damaged goods immediately as claims must be made promptly.
Guarantee and Returns
We want you to be delighted with your purchase but understand that sometimes you may need to return a product. You can order with complete confidence as we guarantee to refund or exchange any product that you are not completely happy with. All we ask is that you return the product to us in its original unused condition, in its original undamaged packaging. It is your responsibility to take “reasonable care” of the goods. Please note that goods that are not available for resale due to hygeine reasons (i.e. bedding, clothing or mattresses) or cut (i.e. material) or made or mixed up to order (i.e. paint) are non returnable if opened or the seal has been broken (except for faulty workmanship).
Returns within 14 days
Within 14 days of receipt of your order you have the right to notify us in writing and cancel and return the whole order unused and in its original undamaged packaging (goods that cannot be resold due to hygiene reasons, sealed goods and those that have been cut to order or are made up to order are non-returnable unless faulty). We will refund the full purchase price and standard delivery postage within 14 days of us receiving your item back (except if you are returning only part of an order, in which case we will refund the purchase price of the item but not the postage).
We reserve the right to charge a restocking charge and to charge for any goods not returned in saleable condition or exceeding the 14 day period. Please notify us before returning goods and use the returns form enclosed with your order. It is your responsibility to cover the cost of returning the goods and to insure them for their value in case they should go astray or be damaged in transit. This does not affect your statutory rights.
In the event that the item you have received is damaged in transit or faulty, or if a product fails within 30 days, we will replace, repair or refund. Please notify us immediately of any such problems and to discuss our methods of returning goods, otherwise we regret we are unable to accept any responsibility for return charges. Depending upon the product, instructions will be given to satisfy you as well as our suppliers to deal with the problem as quickly and efficiently as possible.

It is your responsibility to take “reasonable care” of the goods. After 30 days we will need the product returned for inspection. We can then discuss either repairing or replacing the item. It is the customer's responsibility to cover the cost of returning the goods and to insure them to cover the value of the item/s should they go astray or be damaged in transit..
Method of Return of Faulty Goods
Our method of return is via our Courier Return Service. Customers will be e-mailed a returns label together with a list of local places the item can be dropped off.
