To ensure the best communication possible, please enter a mobile number, not a landline, into your account details so that the courier can send you an SMS with delivery instructions/options.

Delivery Times

Expected delivery dates will vary for each product and are stated in the product descriptions for each individual product.

Delivery information is sent to you via email/SMS, and enables you to communicate directly with the courier. You are able to amend delivery dates and addresses via these communications, and can also nominate a 'safeplace' or a neighbour that can take receipt of the parcel for you. In the event that you miss a delivery, and the subsequent attempts made by the courier, then the parcel will be reconsigned to us. Once it has been received by us, we will contact you regarding redelivery - please note: you will be required to pay the cost of shipping again.

Click and Collect

If you have chosen 'Click and Collect', you will be contacted with a confirmed collection date shortly after placing your order.

We aim to have all 'Click and Collect' orders ready for collection on or before the stated expected delivery date stated for each product.

When collecting your order, please bring proof of purchase, this can be your order confirmation email or a printout, or proof of ID.

If someone else is collecting on your behalf, please provide them with a copy of proof of purchase or order number.

You will be notified by email when your order is available for collection.

Please note: for a standard order you will have 28 days from when your order has arrived to collect. After this time, your order will be cancelled, and a refund will be issued to the original payment method used. If the item is personalised, then we will be unable to offer a refund - we will, however, keep the order for a period of 6 months, and will attempt further contact with yourself.

Due to health and hygiene reasons, we are unable to offer a refund or exchange on pierced jewellery or beauty products.

We are unable to offer a refund for gift vouchers.

Personalised Products

Due to the nature of our personalised products, we try to offer a returns policy that is fair.

For personalised products, the product will be replaced if the personalisation differs from that which was submitted during the ordering process, at no additional cost.

For personalised products which have been correctly personalised as to the specification on the order page, we regret that we cannot offer a refund for these items.

If the product has been damaged in transit, we will arrange for a collection to evaluate whether the product can be repaired or replaced.

Valley Mill retains the right to assess whether or not a Welsh slate item can be repaired. Welsh slate is a highly reworkable material, and so most minor damage can be repaired to a high standard. Wherever this is not possible, we will always issue a full replacement.
