Free delivery is available to UK mainland only (If your order is over the value of £50).

UK and Northern Ireland Delivery is a "door-to-door" service. If no one is at home when Interlink, DPD, Hermes or Royal Mail attempts delivery they will attempt delivery to a neighbour in the local vicinity and leave your parcel with them. If you do not want your parcel left with a neighbour please either leave a signed note explaining where the order may be left, the driver will then take your note as authorisation and the goods will be left where you have requested. This however is done at your own risk. If these options are not possible the courier will leave a calling card and usually attempt re-delivery the following working day. After this you will be required to collect the goods from your local depot. Clear details of this will be on the 'sorry we missed you' card that will be left by your driver.

If the delivery address refuse delivery and the goods have not been cancelled under "Your right to cancel" (below) or if you do not respond to the "sorry we missed you" card left by your driver, your order will be returned to the sender (direct2mum.co.uk) we will then wait for you to contact us before we refund you your money minus the return postage cost.

Our Courier will strive to get your order to you in accordance with the delivery option you selected but, due to circumstances out of ours and our courier's control, i.e. extreme weather conditions, unforeseen incidents, mis-route of a parcel, delays may occur. Please be assured we will endeavour to get your parcel to you as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately we cannot offer our next day service to customers living in the following postcode areas: AB31, AB33 - AB38, AB44 - AB56, IV30 - IV32, Isle of Man and Scilly Isles.

Please note: DPD returns charges are £29.25 up to 10 kilos and 48p per kilo thereafter, direct delivery charges may vary.
Please note: If you are ordering large items, you will be required to carry the objects into your house. Please ensure there will be someone at home who will be able to do this.
Items such as cot beds & nursing chairs may require additional assistance when being delivered due to the size of the packaging. Failure to enter the correct delivery details may result in a charge to amend these with DPD.
