Our Delivery Promise
At Robert Dyas we pride ourselves in offering you excellent service, so we want you to be 100% confident when purchasing from our online store.
To place an order you will be asked to provide a valid email address so that we can send a confirmation email as soon as your order has been dispatched. This helps you to know when your delivery will be made. In most cases, this email will contain a tracking number and a link to the website of our nominated courier to enable you to track the status of your delivery.
Subject to availability, we will use all reasonable means to deliver the items you have ordered within the time stated for the delivery service you have selected once your order is accepted by us. In rare circumstances we may have to split your order and you might receive multiple parcels, however you will only be charged once for delivery.
We aim to dispatch the items you ordered as soon as practicably possible in order for them to arrive within the target delivery date. Any dates we specify for delivery of goods are approximate and we shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused by any delay. If we or our suppliers make a mistake, we will use our best endeavours to rectify the problem and find an outcome that is suitable for you.
It is possible an order will be accepted with insufficient stock to fulfill that order. In case of items being out of stock, we will deliver as soon as new stock arrives unless you request a refund.
In certain exceptional circumstances, such as adverse weather, we may be unable to fulfill your delivery in accordance with these terms. For such exceptions, we may require additional time and effort to fulfill the delivery. If this occurs, we will make our best efforts to deliver your order as soon as we possibly can, or you may opt to cancel and receive a full refund.
We cannot deliver items within the same order to multiple addresses. If this is required please place separate orders for each address. Each order will be subject to a separate delivery charge.
The tables below outline our different delivery charges which will be calculated on the basis of what you are ordering, where you are asking us to deliver to and what day you wish us to make a delivery. You can be confident that you will only pay one delivery charge per order regardless of how many items you order (the highest applicable charge will apply).
Delivery charges are displayed on each product page and will be made clear on the confirmation page before payment is taken.
* Delivery will be subject to extended lead times as detailed in *‘Areas we deliver to’ below

Working days are defined as Monday-Friday 8am-7pm inclusive, excluding Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays.
Please note as the 29th March and the 1st April are bank holidays, we are unable to make deliveries on these days.
Next Day & Named Day Delivery
If the order is placed on the website from Monday to Friday before 2.00pm, you can choose next day delivery for a small additional charge (delivery on working days only).
You can also select a convenient day to receive your delivery by choosing a named day delivery (delivery on working days only).
Working days are Monday-Friday 8am-7pm inclusive, excluding Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays.
Orders placed before 2.00pm on a Friday (excluding Bank Holidays), can be delivered on a Saturday for an additional charge.
Heavy or bulky items can also be delivered on a Saturday, but must be ordered before 2.00pm on a Friday (excluding Bank Holidays). Items with this requirement are clearly marked under delivery on the product page.
Vendor Direct Delivery
Some of the items sold on our website are delivered direct from our suppliers; this is clearly indicated on the relevant product page. Lead times for these items do vary from 5 working days up to 28 days. Please be aware that we can only arrange for delivery of these products to mainland UK addresses. Vendor direct products can only be delivered under our standard delivery charge option.
Areas We Deliver To
We deliver only within the United Kingdom and do not deliver on Sundays or Bank Holidays. Time frames shown are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed. Delivery can be made to the majority of UK addresses excluding P.O boxes.
Unfortunately at this time we cannot take orders for delivery to British Forces Post Offices (BFPO), Freight Forwarders, international addresses or The Channel Islands (GY, JE).
The following areas are subject to extended lead times:
Deliveries will require a signature to confirm receipt (we strongly advise you to inspect all items carefully before signing). For security reasons the precise timing of a delivery cannot be specified.
Once delivered, the items ordered will become your property (provided they have been paid for in full) and your responsibility and, apart from where damaged or faulty when delivered or have been incorrectly delivered, we will not accept any liability for their loss, damage or destruction after they have been delivered.
Please make sure that you check your items carefully before you use them. We recommend that you keep your receipt or order number, which can be found on your order confirmation email or on the order invoice that comes with your delivery, because you will need it as proof of purchase in the event of any after-sales enquiry.
Yodel delivers our standard orders. In the event that you are not home at the time of the delivery, they will attempt to deliver to a neighbour, and a card will be left advising you. Drivers will attempt the delivery twice, on successive days whenever possible. You can then either wait for the second delivery attempt (usually the next working day) or follow the instructions on the card.
If we are still unable to make a successful delivery after two attempts, your order will be returned to our warehouse. You can then request the order to be re-delivered but this will incur an extra delivery cost at the rate originally paid, unless the delivery error is due to failure on the part of Robert Dyas or our Carriers, in which case Robert Dyas will re-deliver free of charge. The Yodel local depot number will be detailed on the card that is left by the driver.
Nightfreight deliver bulky items including our garden furniture sets and awnings on a next day delivery service provided you place your order by 2.00pm. You can also select a weekday delivery date of your choice, and a Saturday morning delivery for a premium charge.

Please note all returns must have a RMA number clearly marked on the outside and inside of the packaging. Failure to do this may result in a delay to the refund of your card.
Recycling Household Electrical Equipment
With effect from July 2007, the UK's Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations require that all producers of electrical equipment are now obliged to pay for recycling of household electrical goods, where previously this bill was met by councils or items were not recycled at all. These regulations also require that all retailers both actively assist in delivering a UK wide WEEE collection infrastructure and encourage the participation of consumers in recycling electronic equipment.
So that you can get your waste electrical goods recycled, Robert Dyas have contributed towards a national fund to assist local councils to further develop their existing waste electronics collection facilities, which will in turn allow producers of this equipment to meet their obligations.
Recycling Household Batteries
Your household batteries can be recycled. Simply drop your batteries into your local Robert Dyas store and they'll be recycled, helping to reduce the 20-30,000 tonnes of batteries thrown away in the UK each year. Click here to find your nearest store.
Alternatively, you can find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at www.recyclenow.com
Most supermarkets and shops that sell batteries will have collection bins for used batteries, and some town halls, libraries or schools may also set up collection points. End-users may find stores in their local area more accessible.
