International Delivery Small items will be sent with Royal Mail. For larger items or high value items a courier delivery is used. Please note that for buyers outside of the UK the International Delivery Agent may contact you to settle fees levied by your countries customs office. These fees may vary & there is no possible way for us to calculate these before the item reaches your country. These fees are payable directly to your local customs office & it is your responsibility to settle them. We do NOT in any circumstances cover these costs. Certain goods are not accepted in to some countries for biosecurity or other reasons such as food items or supplements into Australia where an import permit is required by BICON before export. Please check your countries customs rules, regulations & restrictions before making your purchase & ensure that any permits or licences are applied for. We cannot be held responsible & will not be liable to refund if you have not made neccessary checks before purchase or obtained permits/licences subsequently resulting in your goods being destroyed or returned. Any refunds made for orders where a BICON permit has not been obtained & the item clearly advises a requirement for this will be made less any associated direct costs incurred by Cork Farm.
For orders outside of the UK please note that we do not refund VAT in conjunction with our very low or Free delivery options. Our delivery costings already take into account the VAT element which is manually reallocated & these funds are then used to cover the total cost of your delivery. Should you wish for the VAT to be removed from your purchase this is possible but we would need to invoice additionally for the full cost of delivery.

Our Delivery Method

Please note that for some higher value items, a signature will be required on receipt. If no one is available at your delivery address at the time the item is being delivered the carrier may leave the parcel in a safe place for you or if no safe place is available a card will be left giving you appropriate contact details for your local depot so you can rearrange delivery or collect the item in person. If you have requested Express, Next Day or Saturday Delivery & are not in to accept the delivery, Cork Farm Equestrian cannot be held responsible & will not offer compensation in any form for failed delvieries. It is your responsibility to ensure someone is present to accept your delivery.
Occasionally through no fault of our own there may be carrier delays to your order following dispatch which are outside of our control ie: adverse weather conditions or parcel misrouting. Although we will work closely with the carrier to arrange delviery to you as soon as possible we cannot accept responsibility for these such unavoidable delays.
