Q:           What happens to my delivery in the event of Royal Mail Postal Strikes?


A:            Our products are delivered with special executive courier services like DPD and MyHermes that are unaffected by the Royal Mail Postal Strikes. However it may affect the arrival of samples or invoices as these are sent via Royal Mail.


Q             What if my delivery is damaged or missing items?


A:            We endeavour high quality operational procedures and safety measures for our products and we use only premium couriers to make sure this. However product damages can occur due to circumstances beyond our control. In case of damage or a missing item this needs to be notified with supporting evidences or photographs to Hidden Gem Albion™ Limited on myzards@zards.co.uk within 3 working days from the date of delivery, any longer than this will result in your claim being rejected. All our product deliveries are signed for; unfortunately if your delivery is left without a signature on your request then we cannot be held responsible for any damages or shortages.


Q:           What do I do if I have placed an order over the web and I would like to change it?


A:            Alterations cannot be made to orders that have been already processed or shipped. If you have any questions regarding your order please email us on myzards@zards.co.uk or call us on 0161 301 4445, before proceeding to the checkout or soon as possible.


Q:           What do I do if I have run out of food and would like to fast track my order?

However we guarantee deliveries within 3-5 working days unless selected next day delivery. Regrettably we cannot upgrade any orders to a weekend delivery.
