Tracking Your Order
Once your order is placed, you’ll be able to check its progress easily. A shipment number will be emailed to you from FedEx, together with a link that takes you directly to a tracking page.
Your order will be delivered to the address given by you at the time of the order. Unless you have requested otherwise, a signature will be needed at the point of delivery. A card will be left if no one is available to receive your parcel. Redelivery can be arranged should you miss the carrier for any reason, by logging onto the FedEx website at uk.fedex.com/redelivery or by phoning your local FedEx depot.
FedEx generally aim to deliver by the end of each working day, but parcels typically arrive before noon. This often means you’ll receive your order less than 24 hours after it was placed. In the unlikely event that your goods do not arrive on time, please email us at email@example.com telephone 0843 317 7824 (local rate). We will pursue the order on your behalf and resolve any delivery problems. Proof of delivery can be provided by us if needed, including the name of whoever signed for the parcel.
Installing your Products - Booking An Electrician
Lighting Direct advise against booking an electrician until you’ve received your order and had the chance to check its condition. In the unlikely event that it is damaged or that items are missing, this might avoid needless call-out charges. Unfortunately we cannot be responsible for any charges from contractors in the unlikely event that your order is delayed, not suitable for your application or damaged.
What do I do if I receive damaged goods?
Lighting products tend to be fragile. Our carriers handle such goods every day and we’re confident our robust packaging will prevent damage to breakable items in transit. Despite our best efforts, accidents do occasionally happen. Please inspect your order on arrival and report any damage to us within 24 hours. We’ll be happy to address any problems and help with the return and replacement of your order.
See our Returns Policy for further information on how to request a replacement or return goods to us.
