Delivery Update 29/01/21
PLEASE NOTE - We continue to monitor the current COVID-19 situation in terms of how this impacts our ability to deliver orders under current advised best practices. At present, we are operating on a slightly extended delivery lead time of up to 10 (fortnightly and monthly postcodes also extended in some areas). However, most orders are still being delivered within our standard up to 7 working days delivery time frame. Our delivery service is dependant on our own fragile hand delivery service / the UK courier networks and their continued ability to safely deliver to homes and businesses. At this moment, both services are fully operative and delivering successfully on a weekly basis.
We are complying with the most up to date rules and regulations as laid out by the UK Government, any significant changes to our operation will be notified on our Delivery page. Should you have any queries, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please rest assured that however proceedings develop in these uncertain times, your mirror is reserved for you at the moment of purchase, held in physical stock and will be delivered to you as soon as we possibly can. If your order is a for a pre order item, the same applies as above, however the item is on its way in to stock as a posed to physically held in stock at our warehouse.
FREE delivery applies to all items, regardless of size/weight.
Please Note: There are a small number of postcode based exclusions to our free delivery service, please view our Delivery & Postcode map above for a full breakdown of free delivery coverage and exclusions.
If you live in Northern Ireland, Isle of Wight or Highlands then a carriage charge applies to Hand delivered items.
Smaller items are still FREE delivery using national couriers.
If you wish to swap your item for another, this service is free of charge on the first occasion and our driver will arrange a suitable time with you.
A carriage charge of £15.00 will be applied when exchanging a second item to a third item. The carriage charge will also be applied if the second item is returned to be refunded.
Please note: Free carriage on the returning item will be waived if the exchange includes a discount code on the new mirror which was not applied at the time of the initial order. A £15.00 carriage charge is applied when backdating discount codes for exchanging mirrors
Discount codes applied at the time of order will be carried over to the exchanging item.
Once your order has been dispatched, you will receive email notification advising you that your order is on the way. Within this, we will advise the overall route duration which applies to your delivery (typically 2-4 days). You will also be provided with the direct contact number for our driver, who you may then contact to receive a more specific delivery eta for your postcode.
We understand our customers frequently have work life schedules to navigate and may be able to work around these where possible. Advance prior notice in these instances is key in enabling us to offer a more personalised service, if you have working hours we would need to be advised on, or a minimum level of notice before delivery (eg 24hr notice required before delivery), please leave notes at the time of your order stating your requirements and we will do our best to work around these. If your specific requirements are only known once your order has been shipped, please contact our driver as soon as possible on the number provided.
If you are provided with the contact number for our driver, please try to ensure you make contact with the driver on the number(s) you have attached to your order. For Data protection purposes, our drivers are unable to correspond with phone numbers they have not been pre advised on.
Requesting timed delivery on specific days/times may increase the overall delivery lead time in order to meet your requirements.
Fortnightly areas covered by our partner couriers will be provided with a tracking number and will have a delivery slot offered before the scheduled delivery. Please ensure that all entered contact details (email, telephone number, mobile preferred) are correct so that our courier can keep you updated.

YOUR DELIVERY DETAILS
We understand that our customers will each have their own unique availability circumstances and daily lives, however these will vary greatly from person to person. As such, we must deliver on the basis of assumed occupancy and availability to receive delivery at the provided delivery address.
Once your order has been dispatched and our driver is on the road, it is unlikely at this stage we would be able to adjust a delivery route already in progress. In order to assist us further and where possible, work around your own specific weekly/daily schedule, please provide us with any applicable from the following (at the time of order or shortly thereafter).
- Active phone number
Mobile preferred for our couriers for delivery purposes.
- Opening times/your working hours
If you are a business or you are having your order delivered to your work address then please remember to add the opening hours to the notes section of your order. These can also be emailed to us at email@example.com
If you work then please help us by providing times you are at home so we can try to accommodate you as best as possible.

Our drivers usually deliver from 08:00 am to 20:00 pm so if you feel you are not available during those times or closed then please let us know.
- Possible leave safe options
i,e, behind gate, next door or in porch etc. If you are out during our delivery times.
- Hard to find
Our driver in some cases will not have local knowledge of you area, any notes that will help our driver find your property when delivering would be greatly appreciated. In particular, named properties/new build properties can frequently prove difficult to locate without further guidance provided.
6. Overseas delivery and Third party couriers
We currently do not have any available method to deliver our products overseas (Europe and the U.S. being the most commonly requested markets). The size and fragile nature of the items we supply makes delivery a particularly difficult proposition in these circumstances, with both the cost and damage chance proving to be prohibitively expensive.
Please be advised that we are unable to deliver any of our mirrors to shipping or courier companies for onward delivery.
Successful first time delivery is key to us here at William Wood Mirrors. We aim to deliver your order as professionally and as fast as we can on our first attempt to ensure that you as the customer are happy.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARE NOT IN WHEN WE DELIVER?
If acceptable and reasonable to do so, your item will be left safe with a neighbour or any other leave safe options such as a porch or back gate.
Our drivers will card you to confirm where your order has been left safe. If you do not want your item to be left safe then please advise us at time of order.
Hand Delivered Items: If you are not in and we cannot leave safe then we will re-deliver the next time we are in your area. Please note we will be in contact via email to inform you of re-delivery.
Courier service: If you are not in or our courier cannot leave safe then the courier will follow their normal procedures, usually re-attempting delivery on one more occasions.
