a. Orders of items that are in stock are dispatched within a week. The delivery time depends on the delivery location and method. Most goods are delivered by courier or by post, depending on their size and value. For each order you will be asked or advised about delivery dates as part of the order process. We will advise you about which delivery method we will use when we send you the shipping confirmation email, which will be sent to you when the goods are dispatched from our premises. Occasionally different goods in the same order may be delivered separately.
b. Goods which are dispatched using a courier service are usually delivered on the next working day. For destinations including Scottish Highlands and Northern Ireland delivery may take 4-5 days. Standard products that have to be manufactured we aim to deliver in 7-14 days to mainland Britain destinations, excluding Scottish Highlands. Bespoke items are usually delivered within 2-3 weeks, depending on the quantity. For bespoke items a delivery estimate will be provided at the time of confirming the order details.
c. Goods which are sent by post will usually arrive within 4 days; however, this is a service objective and not a guarantee.
d. Delivery time estimates. MSGuardio.com provides delivery arrival estimates and it is always our goal to meet our expected delivery time, but estimates are not guarantees. Any dates we specify for the delivery of the goods are approximate only and we shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages, charges, or expenses caused by any delay for delivery of the goods and time is not of the essence.
e. Signature upon delivery. Items sent by courier must be signed for upon delivery. Therefore you or a nominated person must be available to sign for receipt of order. We may permit you to send the item to an address other than the card holders to facilitate this. If delivery is attempted, but no one was available to sign for it, we reserve the right to charge you for any subsequent delivery attempts.

• A replacement of this item will be shipped to you at our own expense.
• A repair of the faulty item will be arranged at our own expense. Please note that once repaired the product is no longer eligible for replacement.
• A full refund will be applied to the original form of payment, provided the item has been received by us, verified faulty and is complete with all accessories in its original box and packaging.
l. Our agreements with some manufacturers enforce us to arrange a repair to a product rather than exchange – if this is the case, the manufacturers rules will apply and faulty items will be repaired and returned back to you; we will be unable to offer a replacement unless the fault is not repairable.
m. If the product is not deemed to be faulty by our product support team then you will be offered the following options:
• Return of the goods the cost of delivery charged to you.
• Refund the invoice cost less any applicable delivery and collection charges provided the product is ‘as new’ and complete with all accessories in its original box and packaging.

This charge will be at least 15% of the purchase value. The goods must be returned in the original packaging. We recommend the original packaging be kept for no less than three months in case of a fault developing or any other transit requirements you might have.
o. This does not apply to faults caused by accident, neglect or misuse, for which there will be no refund or exchange.
