Delivery charges in the UK

Orders under £75 - Delivery is dependent on the weight of the item, which will be calculated when you purchase. Delivery should take between 1 to 5 working days and we will email you when your parcel is dispatched. Charges will be based on at a rate similar to the Royal Mail 1st class ‘packet’ tariff, although we reserve the right to send items out via whatever means we choose. 

 

Alternative delivery - Next day Guaranteed
Our standard delivery is via a tracked courier service, which is very quick and efficient. Unfortunately due to the nature of our staffing we do not offer next day guaranteed delivery as standard but we maybe able to offer this on occasions where staff are available during working days.  Provided you call or email prior to 1pm and we have these items in stock and available for instant delivery we maybe able to complete this action. So if required please telephone or email for more details on this service. 

Orders from outside the UK

Deliveries can be made only within the UK at this time we apologies to our friends and customers who live off shore or worldwide. We are working hard to secure deals with couriers etc and will offer EU, Eurpoe and worldwide sales in the very near furture.

Shipping and handling
All goods will be shipped and handled promptly. Orders are always dealt with immediately, whether they are an item that is in stock or an item that needs to be ordered into stock. When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

'Estimated Delivery Times' will be displayed for each product in its product description.

If your particular estimated delivery time is a bit wishy-washy (like ‘1-5 days’) you can always just email or call us for a more accurate idea!


Tax Charges
All prices listed on our site include any Tax required in the UK.

Back Orders
If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.

Returns
Please note the following if you wish to return goods to Slaptap Limited please return to this address: Slaptap Ltd, 

8A Lower Westford, 

Wellington, 

Somerset, 

TA21 0DN.
Under the United Kingdom distance selling regulations you have the right to cancel the contract for the purchase of any items within seven (7) days of delivery and receive a full refund. We are therefore happy for you to send back items within 7 days without explanation. Any clothing including Skates must be unworn and have all tags/labels still intact – please ensure that you are wearing socks when trying on skates and that no marks have been made by you in the process of trying on as we can’t accept any marked items. Sorry but we do not pay for the return of goods. You will be required to pay for delivery including the original cost of sending itms to you unless the item is faulty ( see notes on Faulty Goods)

We will refund your money, excluding delivery charge, within 30 days of our receipt of the cancelled goods, provided that those goods are in their original condition. You do not have to provide any reason for cancellation, just email us our returns form so that we have a record of it. Refunded money will be credited to your original method of payment. Please note: the items remain your responsibility until we have accepted delivery so remember to ask the Post Office for a proof of posting certificate to prove that the item was posted back to us or seek some insurance for the value of the goods. you can cancel your order before it has been posted, but if the goods have already been shipped to you, you will have to return the goods to us before any refund will be issued and the usual returns policy will be applied.

Faulty goods
All goods are covered by a 14 day guarantee against immediate manufacturing defects. Most products however are covered by a year's guarantee against manufacturing defects although it will be up to our discretion whether or not a product malfunction has been the result of everyday wear and tear. Items that are damaged or broken due to the destructive nature of skating can obviously not be replaced free of charge

Although we check garments before we send them where ever possible, in the unlikely event that a garment is faulty or something that you did not order, simply return them to us within 14 days in the original, unused condition and we will exchange them where possible or refund the full amount including postage costs.

A returns form should be downloaded from this site and emailed to us to inform us that a returned garment is on its way.

We expect returned items to be send second class and so will only refund postage to the value of second class registered / recorded post. If you wish to exchange your good faster the extra postage will be at your expense unless agree first with our staff in writing by email. Please telephone us to discuss this matter if you wish. We recommend registered/recorded post as we do not accept responsibility for any items not received by us lost in the post. Until items arrive back with use they remain your responsibility even if lost in the post we therefore recommend you consider insurance if returning very expensive items.
