Any orders that are Direct Delivery may be sent with another courier service but we should be able to provide tracking information when they dispatch the order.

If the order has not been sent out yet, we can delay dispatch until a day before you require the delivery. Unfortunately we cannot keep orders any longer than 14 days.
If the order has already been dispatched then DPD/Interlink Express give you a number of “in-flight” options which include the following
- Leave in a safe place at your property
- Leave with a neighbour
- Collect from a DPD pick up shop (shop names will be available to choose)
- Collect from a DPD/Interlink Express Depot
- Change delivery day
How are the items packed for delivery?
We send all our items out in original manufacturer boxes unless we feel more packaging is required to protect the item from transit damage.
Small items will be sent in separate DPD/Interlink bags.
My parcel has arrived but the box is damaged, what do I do?
In the unfortunate event that you receive your item and damage has occurred to the box then we always recommend to check the item first as the box is there to protect the item during transit.
We need you to check your item/s within 5 days for any damage and let us know as soon as possible so we can arrange for an exchange at no cost.
Any claims after this date could be rejected as you have accepted that the item has arrived in perfect working order.
I have received my parcel. Is there anything I should do?
When you have received your parcel and everything looks fine with the box/packaging we always advise you to check the contents thoroughly within 5 days from delivery. As some items may take damage without any obvious damage signs to the packaging.
If you find the item is damaged within the 5 days, please get in contact with our customer service team via Telephone 01664 502608 or Email so we can arrange a replacement. We will ask for photos before collection of the item.
Any damage claims after 5 days from delivery can be declined by freeNET Electrical as it will exceed the time frame for acceptance of goods.
Could anything go wrong?
In the event of stock or delivery issues we aim to inform you as soon as possible so you can make re-arrangements if needed.
During peak season, there could be delays on dispatch/deliveries due to the volume of parcels being sent. Again we will aim to inform you of these issues should they arise.
The delivery vehicles could also be affected by breakdown or adverse weather conditions but the tracking system should alert you if any of these issues should arise.
