Smaller items sent by Royal Mail may not incur any extra postage. Please telephone for an exact delivery charge before placing your order as our website is not able to recognise postal codes or calculate weights.
If delivery is requested to an address other than where the payment card is registered, the order may be subject to further security checks and the request may only be accepted at our discretion. This may result in the delay of the order being processed.
On larger items* delivery will normally be made within 24 hours by courier however to the areas where a delivery charge is applicable this may be 2 days (Mondays to Fridays only and excluding bank holidays). The courier will email to you a 1 hour time slot with the estimated time of delivery.
*Furniture deliveries direct from the manufacturer will be made usually within 6 weeks or sooner. The manufacturer will liase direct with the customer to arrange delivery.
Smaller items (usually up to 2kgs in weight) will be delivered by first class or standard parcel post normally within 1-5 working days. If delivery is expected to be longer than this then we will e-mail or telephone the Purchaser with an expected date for delivery. We do everything we can to meet the delivery times specified in this section. However, occassionally delivery times may be affected by factors beyond our control and, therefore, they cannot be guaranteed. We will inform you if we become aware of an unexpected delay. We will, endeavour to, respond to any order or e-mail within 24 hours.
All deliveries made by courier must be signed for. If you provide us with a wrong delivery address and your goods are signed for by another party, Oxford Pram Centre cannot be held responsible for any loss incurred as a result. For your protection please make sure you check all boxes carefully for any signs of visible damage and, if necessary, annotate any such damage on the delivery note presented to you by our courier. Claims for damaged or missing boxes cannot be made unless specified at the time.
Items may sometimes be repackaged prior to despatch to provide greater protection during transit. Do not refuse delivery because what it says on the box is not what you ordered. If you refuse delivery you will be charged GBP15 for the courier refusal fee and will incur a further delivery cost to get the item re-delivered.

At Oxford Pram Centre we are doing our bit to Save The Planet by not issuing paper receipts. On placing an order you will receive two emails, an order acknowledgment and a payment confirmation from either 3D Secure Trading for card transactions or Paypal. Please keep these as emails as your proof of purchase. If your order is subsequently cancelled and the payment refunded you will receive an email acknowledgement of the refund.
Items out of stock
If an item is marked as out of stock it may only be a temporary situation. Please telephone if for details of expected arrival of stock or if you wish to pre-order.
