Delivery & Recycling



Delivery


How will my purchase be delivered?

Your purchase will be delivered to you by one of two methods.

  1. By our own engineers in our own vehicles.
  2. By an external carrier.

We aim to ensure a consistently high level of service in everything we do. Wherever feasible we prefer to deliver to you ourselves, where we can ensure proper handling throughout the process.

Larger items will normally be delivered for you by our own team. We will contact you to arrange the delivery once we receive your order, using the details you supplied at checkout. Delivery will then be made at the time of your choice, normally within 24 hours but it can be arranged to suit you. If installation has also been requested then the engineer will perform this for you at the same time.

Smaller items may be dispatched via an external carrier, when we receive your order and installation has not been requested. This will normally be within 24 hours and it should be with you in a few days, at most. Please check all items carefully upon receipt and notify us immediately if any have arrived damaged. Any damage must be reported within 48 hours of the delivery taking place. Find out more here.

How can I be sure it's Homers at the door?

Homer Brothers is a family business. We are people oriented and thoroughly understand that privacy and security are a big concern.

Wherever possible we will arrive in a Homers liveried vehicle. All of our engineers are DBS (CRB) checked and carry photographic identification. If you have any concerns whatsoever, please feel free to ask to see it before allowing them access to your property.

Will I need to sign for anything?

Yes. You will need to be in take delivery. We ask you to sign to say your purchase has arrived.

What if I can't be there?

As long as somebody is available to accept the delivery that is not a problem. Please ensure that they are authorised to act on your behalf.

What if nobody can be there?

If we are delivering your goods our self, when we receive your order we will make arrangements with you to deliver when you are going to be available.

If your plans do change though and you need to reschedule the delivery, please let us know as soon as possible by calling on 0845 643 9579. We'll arrange another date with you.

External carriers have their own procedures but should leave a card with information if they missed you. They will normally try to deliver again the next day, or you can follow the instructions on the delivery card to arrange a different date. Our couriers may deliver your parcel to your neighbours if there's no answer when they call, you will find this information on the card.

Recycling


Can you recycle my old appliance?

Yes, we can do that for you! We can collect your old appliance at the same time as we deliver your new one. Simply select this option during the checkout process.

Disposing of your old appliances can not only be a hassle due to their size but also because they sometimes contain chemical or non recycleable substances which need to be disposed of carefully.

Allow us to take your old one away for you and dispose of it properly. Select the option at Checkout.

Top


How much does it cost?

If you select the option during the checkout process we will load up your old appliance when we deliver your new one.

This is generally offered as a FREE service but we do have to make a charge for refrigeration appliances, which are just £15. Your old appliance will be transported back to our premises and disposed of safely and professionally, with respect for the environment.

Do I need to do anything?

  • If you are having your new product delivered, we ask that you make sure your old product has been safely disconnected and is in a fit state to take away before we arrive.
  • If you've purchased our installation service, we'll also disconnect your old product for you as part of the service.

Built-in and integrated appliances should be safely disconnected and completely removed from their housing. Refrigeration appliances should be fully defrosted and free of water. Please note that if you are purchasing a freestanding appliance with installation we will not be able to disconnect and recycle an integrated appliance, you will need to contact us to book a separate service or preferably this will need to be disconnected prior to the installation taking place.

Gas and dual fuel cookers should be disconnected by Gas Safe registered engineers.

We certainly do not want to damage your property during collection, so in some circumstances we are not able to disconnect old appliances. Below are some examples of why we would not be able to disconnect for you:

  • Your old appliance is hard wired into a fused spur
  • Your old appliance has tap connections that have seized up
  • Your old appliance cannot be moved

If the item to recycle is likely to have any personal data stored on it, please ensure that the data has been deleted.

Can I recycle in-store if I collect?

If you've chosen to collect your purchase from our store, we can accept goods for recycling on a like for like basis.

Before bringing any old items into the store for recycling, please make sure the they are in a presentable condition. If they are likely to have any personal data stored on them, please ensure that the data has been deleted.
