delivery and returns policy

Ecological considerations in our packaging and deliveries

Yogipod endeavours to be as eco friendly as it can be in packaging and delivering your orders.

Currently this is what we are doing:

  • All plastic mailing bags used are made from recycled polythene which can be recycled again
  • All cardboard boxes used to send goods have been used before so we are reusing them and extending their life
  • All orders sent via DPD (everything apart from small orders) will be CO2 neutral

Delivery Details

Currently we are able to ship to Mainland UK and the countries which make up the European Union. Should you wish to order from elsewhere please contact us directly to discuss further.

Mainland UK – Delivery and Shipping 

Our delivery process

  • The delivery cost and timing will be made clear during the ordering process and will be costed according to the size and weight of the order.
  • We aim to despatch all orders within 3 working days. Should there be a delay we will inform you.
  • We ship using services that require a signature on delivery for the safety of your goods. If the address the goods are being shipped to is unlikely to have a recipient to receive the goods we suggest arranging delivery to a different address. We can’t deliver to PO Boxes or packstation addresses.
  • You will be informed of the tracking number of your shipment when the goods are despatched. This can be used to see the progress of your order as it wings its way to you.
  • Please note that delivery times quoted are for your guidance only and are not guaranteed. As we all know there are often circumstances beyond our control in relation to shipping and we cannot be held responsible for shipping delays out of our control although we will always do our best to limit these.
  • If everything in your order is in stock, we’ll aim to send it out within 3 working days. If not all of the items in your order are in stock we will wait for them all to be ready in order to ship at once. This is not only more economical but is better for the environment too. The order can be split but it will be subject to higher shipping fees and we will need to receive instructions from you to do this. So please contact us on hello@yogipod.co.uk if this is something you would like.
  • Once we have accepted your order we will deliver the goods to you no later than 20 days from acceptance unless we have notified you and agreed a longer delivery timeframe.
  • Longer handling and shipping times may occur for goods not being shipped within Mainland UK, should you like to order from outside Mainland UK please do contact us on hello@yogipod.co.uk
  • We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.

Damaged, Incomplete and Undelivered Orders

Parcel damaged in transit

  • Even though we do our best to package goods as well and carefully as possible sometimes parcels do get damaged in transit. In these instances please sign for the parcel but ensure the courier marks it as damaged and take clear photos of the parcel before you open it to inspect the contents.
  • Upon opening if you find goods are missing or damaged please contact us within 5 working days so we can discuss with the couriers. We will require photographs in order to progress your claim.
  • Once the parcel has been delivered, whether damaged or not, in line with the Consumer Rights Act the responsibility has passed from us as the retailer to you as the receiver so please ensure if goods are being delivered to a neighbour or a safe place that no damage can occur and they are safe.
  • Depending on the scale of the damage we will work with you to find a solution to the problem but this will not always result in new products depending on our current stock levels it may mean just a refund.

Items missing from an order

  • If you receive your order and there are items missing, first and foremost we can only apologise.
  • Please check the parcel to see if it has been damaged in transit and if so please refer to the point above regarding damages.
  • If the item is just missing please contact us immediately on hello@yogipod.co.uk so we can rectify this
  • The only time we would not be able to send a missing item is if this item was out of stock. On this occasion we would refund the relative portion of the order

My parcel hasn’t arrived on time

  • Please refer to the despatch confirmation in order to find the courier tracking number. This will give you the most up to date information regarding the whereabouts of your delivery. Please note our smaller deliveries will only come with a delivered confirmation and are not full trackable. Should you require a fully trackable service then a more expensive shipping charge will need to be chosen.
  • Sometimes because of circumstances beyond our control deliveries are delayed.
  • Should the tracking number not display information regarding the delivery or you are worried about you delivery please contact us on hello@yogipod.co.uk so that we can investigate and raise a claim with the courier

My parcel hasn’t been delivered

  • Occasionally parcels go missing and are not delivered by the expected date. Should this be the case please contact us as soon as possible and definitely within 5 days of the expected delivery date. This gives us the best chance of the couriers finding the parcel which has normally been mislaid rather than lost

Why would my parcel not be delivered?

  • It has been mislaid in transit – please refer to the point above
  • The delivery address supplied is incorrect. Please ensure that this is correct when placing your order. Should you notice a mistake in the order confirmation email please contact us immediately as we can take no responsibility if the parcel is lost when the address supplied is incorrect. Usually under these circumstances the parcel is returned to us, we will contact you and we will refund you less the shipping costs. A new order will need to be placed to receive the goods again.
  • Failed delivery attempts. Usually couriers try to deliver a couple of times before the parcel is returned to us. Should the delivery be missed and not rearranged then the parcel is returned to us, we will contact you and we will refund you less the shipping costs. A new order will need to be placed to receive the goods again.
  • Refused by recipient. When ordering a gift to be sent directly to the recipient, please be sure that they are aware. A gift recipient who isn’t expecting a gift may refuse a parcel if they believe it’s being delivered to them by mistake. Should this happen, your order will be refunded less any shipping costs and an email sent to notify you. You will need to place a new order online.
  • Illegible address. In rare cases address labels may become illegible in transit. If this happens a carrier will return the parcel to us. In these instances, we will reship free of charge.
  • Badly damaged parcel. If a parcel is badly damaged while it’s on its way to you the carrier may return it without attempting delivery. In these instances, we will repack and reship free of charge.

When you become responsible for the goods

  • Once the parcel has been delivered the responsibility has passed from us as the retailer to you as the receiver so please ensure if goods are being delivered to a neighbour or a safe place that no damage can occur and they are safe.

  • You own the products once we have received payment in full.

  • To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel your contract by a clear statement, including details of your name, geographical address, details of the order you wish to cancel and, where available, your phone number and email address.

This includes the cost of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you choose a type of delivery other than our standard and least expensive method of delivery).
  • We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. We will make the reimbursement no later than 14 days after the day we receive back from you any goods supplied.
