Delivery Timescale

All delivery timescales refer to working days and are from the day of despatch NOT the day we receive your order. If we have the items in stock, for orders received before 13.15 hours UK time, on a working day, we aim to despatch the same day. However due to the variety of our product range, in particular with colour options, we are unable to hold every option in stock. Likewise because some of our product range is manufactured to order we cannot manufacture and despatch in the same day! Products are marked as 'out of stock' if we are aware that we cannot despatch within a working week. If timescale is important to you please discuss your requirements with Connevans Customer Services, they will help in whatever way possible.

We offer a number of delivery services, the choices available for your location are offered when viewing your basket. Saturday deliveries are available for an additional charge. Please note that delivery timescales refer to working days, Monday-Friday. Next day delivery does not include Saturdays or Sundays.

As we use carrier services we cannot guarantee the delivery day. If you are not normally at home to receive deliveries instead of taking time off work please choose UPS Access Point where you can collect when convenient. Should a Parcelforce before 10 or before Noon delivery be late, please notify us and we will refund you the additional cost of that service. 

If there is to be an undue delay with the dispatch of your order you will be emailed with details.

Please contact  should you not receive your order placed with within one working week of dispatch.

Please note that our working days are UK office hours Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays.

Returns Policy

In the United Kingdom the Consumer Rights Directive (CRD) gives a customer the right to cancel up to 14 calendar days from the date of delivery. To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel your order by a clear statement in a 'durable medium' (eg email, letter or fax) within the 14 calendar day period, in this case the original standard delivery cost will be refunded but not the cost of return. 

If you wish to exercise your right of cancellation you are obliged to take reasonable care of the products while in your possession.   

You must return the goods to us, at Connevans Limited, Bridge House, 1 Nutfield Road, Merstham, Surrey RH1 3EB, UK, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your order cancellation to us. As mentioned previously you will have to bear the cost of returning the goods. When you return any products to us, we will not be responsible for any loss or damage to them in transit.

We may make a deduction from the refund for loss in value of any goods supplied if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling from you other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.

We will make the refund without undue delay, and not later than 14 days from when we receive the returned goods. We will make the refund using the same means of payment as you used for the initial payment.

Connevans Voluntary Returns Policy

To give you further peace of mind, orders from Connevans Limited are placed with the extended assurance that if you find an item unsuitable and return it to us outside the CRD 14 day statutory period but within 30 days of invoice, we will be pleased to refund the cost of the product - providing it is returned to us in resaleable condition with proof of purchase and a completed returns form. Certain items are excluded for hygiene reasons as noted on the product page.

Our definition of resaleable condition includes being returned with the original packaging and in a tidy and clean condition. The original delivery charge will not be refunded - the cost of returning a product is the responsibility of the customer unless it was received faulty or damaged.

We do not offer a loan or trial service and our offer of refund does not apply if you have used the product other than to assess whether it is satisfactory. We reserve the right to make a repackaging charge or refuse a refund if the product is not returned to us in a tidy and clean condition.

Items not covered by our extended 30 day return policy: items ordered by special request, products excluded for hygiene or other reasons as noted on the product page and goods ordered against our advice.

Equipment less than 5 years old – repair warranty 6 months.
Equipment less than 8 years old – repair warranty 3 months.
Equipment more than 8 years old – we are happy to repair it, but it is only warranted that the repair will work when you get it back (i.e. 3 weeks if you want to put a time on it).
How do you work out how old a piece of equipment is? There is an 8-digit serial number on all items manufactured by Connevans – the first four digits are the date of manufacture. For example: The serial number on an item might be: 08021362 – this item was made in February 2008, i.e. the first two numbers are the year, the second two are the month. Naturally, your warranty runs from when you buy the equipment not from when it was manufactured, but it is useful to know.


In accordance with its policy of progressive product design, Connevans reserves the right to alter specifications and/or appearance without notice. All offers of guarantee and servicing arrangements apply to the UK/EU only.
