When can I expect to receive my order? Are there currently processing or shipping delays?

Due to Covid-19 and Brexit there may be shipping delays. If you have created an account, you should be able to check your order progress. 

We really appreciate your patience during this time.


Can I still make purchases without creating an account?

Yes, you can purchase as a guest but you will not be able to access your purchasing history and track transactions.

How quickly can my kit be sent because I’m going away or moving and might want to change my shipping address? 

We hold orders for 72 hours from purchase to allow for address changes if needed. We recommend allowing 2 weeks for delivery for all UK residents, EU + ROW may be slightly longer. We always do our best to ship your kit to you as quickly as possible but cannot guarantee a specific delivery window until your kit is packed and ready to ship.

How do I place a return or exchange on a kit?

We’re sorry to hear you weren’t happy with your purchase. With each kit sale we hold every order for a minimum of 72 hours before it is processed to manage any unexpected changes to your order. Due to the nature of these products, it is not possible to return an item that has left the warehouse and/or once these 72 hours have passed, unless it is faulty upon arrival. 

Why can’t I return my order?

If you have purchased a kit, because they are assembled by our warehouse individually and to protect our staff and customers during Covid19, we are unable to permit returns, unless the outer packaging is faulty or broken.

What should I do if my kit has arrived broken or faulty?

Please drop us an email at store@carolinehirons.com and we will do our best to rectify the situation in the safest way possible for you.
