Terms & Conditions
Delivery and postage
Hindquarters dog collars, leads, harnesses and dog bowls, will be dispatched by Royal Mail. Deliveries to UK addresses should arrive within 3 working days from order. Small dog beds are typically dispatched the next working day via Royal Mail on a 48 hour service. Medium and Large dog beds are shipped by courier the next working day on a 48 hour service. Please let us know if you would like delivery on a particular day.
We welcome international orders and the Hindquarters website is configured to accept orders from outside the UK. Shipping costs for international orders are added at point of checkout and vary according to weight, dimension and destination.
A guide to international shipping costs: the cost of shipping items outside the UK varies according to weight and size of your order, as well as destination. For example, it costs £5 to post a collar or lead to a destination outside the UK. Shipping two, three or four dog collars and/or dog leads costs £8 to any address in the world, depending on size/length. Dog beds to the EU cost £10 for a Small size dog bed, £18 for a Medium, and £20 for a Large dog bed. Our dog beds are bulky and shipping to Australia and north America, including the USA and Canada, as well as other parts of the world can be expensive according to size. Please note these costs are a guide. If you live outside the UK and have questions please contact us.
We produce functional, quality products for dogs and their owners and are proud of what we make and sell. But we will not be totally satisfied until you are and so we offer a full refund or exchange (excluding package + postage costs) if you are not entirely happy with your Hindquarters product.
We operate a goodwill returns policy so just get in touch if you are not happy. Under UK law, you have 14 days from receiving your goods to cancel your order. Exchanges and refunds must be notified within 14 days of receipt and returned within a further 14 days, after this Hindquarters can refuse the right to accept a refund or exchange. This does not affect your statutory rights.
If you are not satisfied, please:
- cancel your order in writing by email to Hindquarters within 14 days of receipt letting us know reasons and whether you’d like a refund or exchange
- return the item to Hindquarters, PO BOX HQ, 46 Spenser Road, London SE24 0NR
- please ask for a proof of postage as we can’t be held responsible for anything that gets lost or damaged in transit back to us
Please don’t hesitate to call us with any queries. Thank you.
Our dog beds are built to last and we are confident that treated with care they will last a lifetime. We are happy to repair or replace free of charge any dog beds or dog bed covers that rip or tear due to defects in materials or workmanship. This doesn't cover general wear and tear or damage caused by chewing.
You assume responsibility for the selection, suitability and use of Hindquarters products, keeping your dog under close supervision, and checking regularly for degradation.
