5. International Shipping
Delivery of products outside the UK Mainland may be liable for additional duty and custom charges. Domestic sales taxes may be added on receipt of delivery. Additional charges for customs clearance must be accepted by the recipient. Petersham Nurseries has no control over these charges and they are a reflection of the customs and policies held by the final destination country. Policies for customs vary from country to country; please contact the necessary local customs office for further information prior to ordering. In the event that an item requires returning, Petersham Nurseries will be unable to refund import duty and local sales taxes.

Please note that the price of delivery for bulky, fragile and unusual items that require special handling will be quote-based. We will get back to you with a quote within 48 hours.
We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery on your order. Please make sure this address is accurate and that care is taken to select the appropriate address for shipping and billing. Liability cannot be accepted for loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions.
Although all endeavours are made to deliver within the quoted time frame, this cannot be guaranteed. Should delivery be delayed due to circumstances beyond reasonable control, contact will be made to advise that the delivery date has changed.
If you have any questions about your order, please email email@example.com.
7. Delivery Access
Responsibility for ensuring that items ordered can be delivered to the delivery address remains with the customer. Safe and reasonable access from the public highway to the place of delivery must be available. Parking permits should be arranged by the customer in advance of delivery.
Delivery charge does not include any costs resulting from the removal of fixtures, including windows and doorways, or specialist lifting equipment.
Should access be considered unsafe, delivery will not be possible until safe access is provided. Please note, if orders cannot be delivered due to access restrictions, the customer may be liable for costs associated with the delivery of that order.
Should there be any concerns about access via restricted spaces, such as doorways, stairs, lifts or hallways, we strongly advise that a request for an access inspection is made prior to purchase.
