Delivery & Payment Methods
At Easy Animal we understand that customers don't like to pay delivery costs if at all possible, we have therefore made it really simple and transparent and now we are offering a Free Standard Delivery to all UK Mainland addresses with a few exceptions.
Please provide a mobile number to receive notifications from the courier Parcelforce which will include a one hour time slot whereas email notifications only state the day of delivery. Certain items are sent by courier and other smaller items are usually sent by Royal mail tracked delivery. If you have not received your order within the timeframe stated please contact us so we can look into this for you. Parcelforce attempt delivery and if you are not in they will either try a neighbour or leave the item at your local post office. They should leave a card to inform you of this but if you do not receive a card on the day you expected delivery please contact us so we can find out where your parcel is.
All orders for the UK mainland will be free on a Standard Delivery.(Excluding Galvanised Dog Run Panels). Standard Delivery includes Royal Mail tracked delivery so expected delivery times should be between 2-5 days. Should you require your order even quicker then you can choose in the checkout to upgrade the order to Next Day Delivery for a small surcharge of £3.00 which will mean your order will be delivered by next day courier , Parcelforce ( Monday to Friday only) but orders need to be placed before 2pm.

You will receive an email from the courier regarding the delivery day if you have not provided a mobile number.

If you are not in to sign for your item our courier, Parcelforce, will either try a neighbour, leave it at your local post office or attempt delivery the following day. If they have attempted delivery twice a third attempt is then available at a cost to you or the item will be sent back to us and you will incur a charge of £15.00 for this. If you refuse an item then you will also incur a charge for the item to be sent back to us.

If your delivery address is in the UK we aim to despatch your purchases as quickly as possible. As a company we pride ourselves on providing a very fast service and certainly our next day orders are delivered using a next day courier service where delivery takes place Monday to Friday during business hours. However occasionally delays occur but we endeavour to get the product to you as fast as we possibly can and if there is a reason for delay then we would advise you by email. Next day delivery is not however 100% guaranteed as there are occasionally delays such as traffic problems, road closures, breakdowns etc. Items sent by Royal Mail need to be 15 working days late from the date of shipment before we can file for a lost item and either send a replacement or issue a refund.
If your delivery address is in Europe, we aim to deliver your purchases within 5 working days of ordering. However most orders are delivered within 3-5 working days, this again is sent by a fully recorded and trackable service so this service is fully insured.
All other countries within 7 working days.
Next Day Courier
Most orders above 3kg are despatched using a next day courier. We use Parcelforce who have depots nationally, and they ensure a rapid and reliable service. If you have included a mobile number on your order and you do not receive a notification from the courier regarding your allocated time slot on your delivery day please contact us so we can look into this for you to prevent you from having to wait in all day. All items sent by courier are fully trackable and if you need to know about the delivery of an order then please call us on 01785 819507 and we will be able to update you on this.
All purchases from EasyAnimal are specially packed and we try to avoid damage but obviously once it has left us we cannot be held responsible for any damage caused.
EasyAnimal makes every effort to ensure that your goods arrive to you within the specified delivery times by using accredited couriers, however we can not take responsibility for late or failed deliveries arising from incorrect delivery details supplied by the customer. All deliveries must be signed for by the customer or by a person acting on behalf of the customer. All deliveries are made during normal business hours Monday to Friday. If there is no one at the delivery address during those hours, this may delay the delivery of your order.
We send out orders on Mondays to Fridays and our cut-off time for an order to leave the same day is 2pm. Occasionally there is some slight flexibility on this time but that depends on our workload that day. Please note that if you order a next day item after 2pm on Thursday your item would be despatched on Friday using a next day delivery service and would arrive with you on the Monday. Next day items ordered after 2pm on Friday would not be despatched until Monday.
