We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason.

Shipping and Handling

All goods are sent by Royal Mail. Postage & packaging is itemised when an order is placed.

Delivery Schedule

Bugshirt deliveries within the United Kingdom will normally be sent out by first class or small parcel post depending upon the number of garments ordered; Bugshirts are usually dispatched within 3 working days. Please allow an extra working day for delivery to remote areas.

Please note that all Mosquito Magnet orders MUST be signed for on delivery. If no-one is available on the first day to accept delivery, a card will normally be left through the consignee’s letter box advising an attempt to deliver had been made. The carrier will normally telephone before making another delivery attempt. Deliveries are attempted twice (first delivery day & normally next working day), thereafter parcels may have to be collected from the local delivery depot. Midge Guard cannot be held responsible for delivery delays caused outside of their control.

If we are out of stock either temporarily or permanently, we will advise you as soon as we are able.

Please be aware that the Post Office will not regard a First or Second Class parcel as ‘missing’ until 15 working days have elapsed since the parcel was dispatched. We regret that we can take no further action until that period has elapsed, as the Post Office will not allow a claim for lost post before then.

Furthermore, once a claim has been raised, the Post Office will write to you asking you to confirm non-delivery: you will be asked to complete and return their form (P91). When the Post Office receive your returned form they will agree the loss, and we can then re-send the item or refund your payment.

Please ‘phone (0844 561 7059) and check availability if time is critical to you as we shall be unable to dispatch the item if is out of stock.

Also note that the Post Office does not class Saturday, Sunday, or Public Holidays as working days: thus an order dispatched on Friday may not arrive until Monday. All Recorded, Special, and International deliveries will require a signature on delivery: it is therefore worth considering having such deliveries made to your work address.
International orders are generally delivered in around 7 days.

Back Orders

If we are out of stock either temporarily or permanently, we will advise you as soon as we are able. Alternative products will not be substituted without your consent. If we cannot supply the item(s) you want, and you do not want any alternatives, we will refund any payment.

Tax Charges

All our prices exclude VAT.
Value Added Tax is calculated at current UK rates. It is clearly itemised and included in the final sales price.
This applies to all sales made to EU member countries.
It is a legal requirement that VAT has now to be levied on shipping within the EU.
