Delivery of growroom room equipment is delivered within 2 - 4 working days subject to availability and are delivered by either royal mail or dpd. Grow rooms/cabinets are dispatched within 28 WORKING days, delivery on these items take 2-3 days so please allow 30 working days for your cabinet too arrive. Pallets are not delivered on weekends. As at times more often than we would like, uncontrollable events do occur, and once an item has left our premises and possession we are both in the hands of the courier. We offer free delivery on orders over £250.00 however this does not apply to pallet orders eg any grow cabinets or orders that are of a certain weight ie any order over 28kg, if your order weighs more than this we will not be able to give you free postage as our courier charges a standard rate for anything under this weight, if your order weighs more than 28kg the price of postage is higher therefore you will be charged postage.

we send our products depending on item by either royal mail, dhl,ciTy link, parcel force, ups, or pallet line, but every now and again customers do prefer for items to be sent by a different courier for what ever reason, if you also feel this way let us know when you place the order and we will send you the items in question by your courier of choice
How will it Arrive?
All our packages will arrive in very secure and discrete plain packaging, box's, or brown wrap. This is done to avoid any unnecessary or unwanted attention from anyone else,
When ordering glass based items such as cool tubes, please check the item before accepting it from the courier, if it is not signed for as damaged, we are unable to cover this item under the insurance due to not knowing if the damage was done due in transit or after delivery was accepted.
Large growrooms will be delivered by pallet, delivery is added on top of the price shown for the units. The delivery includes insurance and delivery only, there is a £20 charge for re delivery should no one be at the premises at the time of arrival and you do not want the unit left so please bare this in mind, however you can collect from you local depot for free should that be more suitable. We also have a holland depot for our partner co, some larger growrooms are sometime sent straight from the depending on our current stock.
Deliveries via pallet will be delivered to the premises but cannot be taken inside by the courier, as the couriers are not covered by the insurance policy to do so, For large goods you may need to arrange help from a friend or colleague to further move the shipment inside your premises or location.
Payment can be made by any of the methods mentioned on the payment page, I give you my gurantee all credit and debit card transactions are completely secure and are sent across 128 bit encrypted network, pay pal also guarantee this and offer full protection against loss as standard procedure.
No matter how your payment is sent or by what method you choose, no items will be sent out till it is 100% clear that payment has been made in full and has been cleared, for example if you pay by cheque please be aware that depending on your bank or building society it could take between 3-14 days for your cheque to clear. The usual is 3-5 days but in some cases if you bank with nationwide it can take up to 14, i dont know why but its just how they work!

Orders can be cancelled but they must be cancelled within 24 hours, or a charge for the cost of labour (construction in cases of grow cabinets) and administration of the purchased unit will incur for grow rooms and grow cabinets,(this cost will vary) each unit is built to the customers exact needs and specification, so the unit may not be resalable so please bare this in mind before purchasing! This is also the same for over seas deliveries, if the unit or items have already been dispatched before you cancel the order then we will not be able to return the cost of delivery, only the cost of the item purchased this is apply to uk and international deliveries as we have to pay delivery costs upfront before collection. On special order items that have to be order in, within the uk, Europe or worldwide will have a 10% cancellation fee if not cancelled within 24 hours, this is due to incurred stocking and storage costs of special order items should the order be cancelled.
Deposits are non refundable on special order items, this is non negotiable, We take deposits for these items due to the exchange rates and high postage incurred that we have to pay upfront on your behalf for us to ship special orders in to us, in advance. Special order items are due to very high value and or speciality items, due to the fact we can sell sometimes 10 in a week, or one in a a year they are difficult to gauge stock levels so are ordered on a per order basis.
Deposits on orders that are placed in-store or online are valid for 30 Days unless agreed otherwise before the deposit is paid. Deposits are to secure items and guarantee reservations for products, the balance must be cleared before collection or delivery is made. If the outstanding balance is not paid in full within 30 days the deposit is void and the goods will be returned to our suppliers. If items are not collected within 30 days of the balance being paid storage charges on large items will incur.
On Special order items the deposit can also not be cancelled and used for another order, again this is due to the high exchange rates, admin and delivery to get these goods in to us which 9 times out of 10 originate from other international country's.
It is our practice to hold things for 14 days once a deposit has been paid, in certain circumstances we can hold goods for to 30 days if agreed in advance when placing the deposit.
The deposit requested is usually around the value of our initial costs to obtain and source the items for you, this is why if the order is cancelled or not we still have to incur and pay these charges to our suppliers regardless, please bare this in mind before paying a deposit.
Cancelled orders within 48 hours will be refunded minus our import shipping costs and costs of cancelling the order with out supplier, bare in mind more expensive and heavy goods do incur much higher shipping costs and our charges that we add to our initial sale prices
Missing Items do happen now and again as up to 40 accessories come with some units, and we do now and again run out of one of the items, A note at hydro-grow will have been made to place the item on backorder and the missing items will be sent out as soon as possible, but please confirm if anything is missing incase of any other circumstances
