Delivery Information

 Our delivery service:

At Quentor our aim is to offer our customers a delivery service which is quick, efficient and hassle-free. The Quentor delivery service is designed to offer you convenience and value.

How we notify you about the delivery:

  • Once your order is packed and ready to be dispatched, we will send you a ‘Shipment notification email’.
  • The ‘Shipment notification email’ will have the courier’s name, contact details and an estimated delivery date.
  • From the moment when this notification email has been sent, you should check the delivery date and notify us immediately if you foresee an issue.
  • In any instance when only part of the items ordered are ready to be dispatched, we will contact you and confirm with you whether you wish to have the items that are ready dispatched and the remainder of the order to be delivered as soon as they are available.

 

Where we deliver to:

  • United Kingdom Mainland
  • UK Islands, Scotland Highlands, Northern Ireland & Eire
  • European Union countries
  • Due to the bespoke nature of our business, the delivery cost can vary considerably relative to the product. The delivery cost will be shown at the point of order for stock items and you will be advised of the delivery cost within the quotation for bespoke items.

 

United Kingdom Mainland

How long does it take?

Items dispatched on any business day (Monday - Friday) excluding Bank Holidays should be usually delivered within 5 business days (excluding weekend), anytime up to 5.30pm depending on the nature of the order.

Our standard delivery will be 2-3 days from dispatch. Under some circumstances we cannot guarantee a timed delivery; however every effort is made by ourselves & the couriers to achieve this.

 

European Union

How do we charge for the delivery to European Union countries?

  • You pay only for the exact weight of your order.
  • The delivery cost for specific country depends only of the total weight of the items ordered.

Once your order is ready to be dispatched, we will calculate the exact weight of your order and thereby the delivery cost will be known. 

 

What courier services do we use?

Due to the varying size and weights of our products, we will use various courier companies and methods of dispatch, usually this will be indicated within the dispatch confirmation.. You must arrange for someone at your address to be present and sign for the parcel on the expected delivery date.

Where a parcel cannot be delivered, (e.g. no-one at home), you will be notified by the Courier with a telephone number to call to arrange a suitable time for re-delivery. Typically, the Courier will only attempt one re-delivery, thereafter you will be required to collect your parcel from the collection depot within 5 days. If your parcel is not collected within 5 days it will be returned to Quentor Ltd and you will be notified so that another delivery date can be arranged at additional cost.

Occasionally parcels are delayed due to poor addressing/sign posting . We may need to give  the Courier your telephone number in case they need to contact you regarding the delivery. There is a check box on the order form giving you the option of allowing or disallowing this information to be released.

 

What to do if there is a problem with the delivery

Quentor Ltd relies upon the services of third party couriers, and whilst we endeavour to ‘keep to our word’ there are unfortunately a few occasions when the couriers fail to perform the service that they are required to. This happens rarely, but because it does occur, albeit occasionally, we cannot be held responsible for the late delivery of an item. For the avoidance of doubt Quentor Ltd will not refund the standard delivery charge if the courier has failed to deliver the item(s) on the anticipated delivery date.

If the parcel does not arrive when you expect it then please don't hesitate to give us a call on +44 (0)1603 721604, we will contact our courier and call you back to let you know what's happening.

If the goods are damaged upon receipt please call us on +44 (0)1603 721604 or e-mail: sales@quentor.com on the day of delivery.

 

Secured shopping and payments

  Your personal data protection

This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) that information is encrypted and is protected with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. While on a secure page, such as our order and registration forms, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked to show that SSL is in use.

Secure connections (often called SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer technology) are the industry standard in Web security. SSL is used primarily for transmitting sensitive information over the Internet. When you have a secure connection between your browser and a website, no one else can easily access the data that you send across the connection.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information offline. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific process are granted access to personally identifiable information.

Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

We currently use hi-rate 256 bit SSL encryption of the information transferred between a customer’s browsers and our website server. This encryption guarantees that no piece of your personal information may be intercepted and used by any third party. Our encryption is certified and verified by Thawte Consulting - leading global certificate authority of SSL certificates.
