All of our made to order items will specify an estimated delivery period. Engineered Deliveries are usually delivered within 5-10 working days. Delivery times are estimates only and no guarantee can be made as time is not the essence of this agreement.
Please be aware that if you request that goods are left in a safe place via the courier notes, Midbeds Mobility cannot claim for missing items or damage to your parcel. As a result, in the event of an absence, we strongly recommend that you collect your parcel from a local delivery depot or instruct the courier to leave your parcel with a trusted neighbour.

Goods damaged in transit must be reported immediately by signing the delivery note damaged on arrival and inform Midbeds Mobility the same day as the delivery/receipt of the goods. Any damaged goods must be retained by the buyer for any inspection. If the delivery note is signed without the comment damaged on arrival the seller cannot be held responsible for damages.

Where goods need to be dismantled to enable return, providing you notify us by phone or in writing within 14 days of delivery and agree to pay our costs (this will be confirmed beforehand), we will send an engineer to your premises to collect the goods at a convenient time.
We advise you to sign all deliveries as ‘unchecked’. If you suspect your goods have been damaged in transit please sign the delivery note as damaged.

5. VAT Relief
A person who is chronically sick or disabled purchasing products for personal use, along with charities where the products are made available to a disabled person for their own personal or domestic use, may be eligible for VAT Relief.
In order to qualify for VAT Relief, you must ensure the VAT Relief declaration is filled in, declare the precise medical condition, and meet the criteria at the time of placing your order. Assuming you meet these criteria, you will be charged the price excluding VAT unless a particular product has compulsory VAT. Orders which are received without completed declarations will incur the VAT charge, which will be highlighted clearly to you through our shopping calculator at the checkout. Should you have any queries please contact email@example.com
Completed VAT Relief Declarations by customers are accepted as prima facie evidence by the Company that a valid medical condition exists for zero-rated VAT under The VAT Act, and no VAT will be charged on the goods purchased.
If at a later date, HMRC disputes the validity of the medical condition, you will be liable to pay the appropriate VAT that should have been applied to your order. Under these circumstances, Midbeds Mobility reserves the right to demand that you pay the VAT amount that is due.
You must be sure of your eligibility for VAT relief before completing the declaration. If you are unsure please call the National Advice Service on 01767 220418. The goods ordered must be for your personal or domestic use only. It Is a criminal offence to claim VAT Relief if you do not fit the eligibility criteria. It is the responsibility of the buyer to ascertain whether they fit the eligibility criteria.
VAT Relief does not apply to the posting and packaging charges.
The completed form is retained by us for presentation to HMRC only. We do not sell your data on to any third parties.
