We are sorry to announce that we have had to increase our postal charges. Royal Mail have made several increases in the past 2 years which we have absorbed. Unfortunately we have had to admit defeat and have updated the charges.
Delivery Charges and Delivery Estimates
Shipping times are quoted on the basis that the product is in stock. Very occasionally certain items will go temporarily out of stock. We aim to dispatch 'in stock' items on the same day after receiving an order.
Orders are processed between Monday and Friday 09:00 - 15.00 GMT, excluding Bank and Public Holidays. Orders placed during a weekend or Bank Holiday after 15:30 GMT will be processed on the next working day. All prices on our site are quoted in UK Pounds Sterling (£).
All UK orders sent either Royal Mail 48 hr or 24 hr tracked and are an estimated time of arrival. There is no guarantee of service with tracked 24 or 48.
Royal Mail Special Delivery. Special Delivery is the only guaranteed next day service. If your Item is not delivered on time you will be refunded for the postage costs
Please note that we cannot be held responsible for items delayed in the postal system as this is beyond our control. This is especially so at Christmas time as the large volume of parcels slow down all services.
UK destinations include BFPO and Northern Ireland.

Dispatch will be made within 1-2 days
The prices are based on weight, but with extra cost of International Airsure
Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery. Your shipping charge will vary based on weight and country of destination. Expedited shipping is not available for International orders.
Orders outside the EU
Your package will be subject to customs/duties charges. Royal Mail and Merritts for Hair are not responsible for customs/duties charges. These costs are determined by your local customs office. Merritts for Hair cannot determine, in advance, what these fees will be. We do try to minimize these charges by listing the ‘wholesale’ cost of your package on the commercial invoice rather than the retail value. This provides the customs agents with a true, legal value while minimizing your costs. We cannot mark International orders as a “gift” in order to bypass or reduce any customs fees – this is an illegal practice and as an established business we will not do this. For more information on customs and duties charges, please contact your local customs office.

Once an order has been received, you will automatically receive a confirmation email, confirming receipt of order as well as order details.

Delivery Problems & Policy for Lost Goods
If your order does not arrive within the timescales above please bear in mind...
- If the parcel was too big to go through your letterbox or there is no one available to accept the Parcel at the delivery address completed on your order, Royal Mail will leave a card and will keep the parcel in the local sorting office for up to 7 days, so you should check there first before contacting us.
If the goods are not collected from the local sorting office within the specified time, the goods will be returned to us, and we will contact the customer to re-arrange delivery, although the customer will be responsible for paying the postage charge, which will be based on the weight of the parcel

Please make sure you enter the correct delivery address details when making your order. Merritts for Hair shall not be held liable for incorrect details entered by the customer. We are under no obligation to issue a refund or replace any goods if an order has been delivered to an incorrect or incomplete delivery address.
Policy for Lost Goods or non-delivery of orders
On occasions, orders may get lost, and fail to get delivered, which are outside the control of merrittsforhair.co.uk, as we are reliant on Royal Mail.
So if you have not received your order within the specified timescales above, and have checked with your local sorting office and the parcel is not there, we cannot resend the parcel for 15 working days, as this is the timescale for Royal Mail to confirm the parcel as lost. You will not be entitled to a refund during this time.
If the parcel is not found after 15 days, and Royal Mail confirm the parcel or goods as 'lost', then your order will be resent.
