Failed Delivery


If an item is sent out and subsequently returned to us as undeliverable, we will request further delivery charges to be paid before redelivering an item.

If the courier is unable to deliver your item, they will leave calling cards and then keep the item at the local depot for collection. They will normally keep your item for a week. If you do not collect your item within this time, the courier will return your item to us at our cost including a third party collection surcharge. This means that we will not redeliver your item until you have both paid for the redelivery and also paid for the cost of returning the item via courier.

The standard courier delivery charge is £10. The standard Courier return (including third party collection surcharge of £5) is £15. This means that you must pay a further £25 minimum before we will redeliver a courier item that has been returned.

For these reasons we highly recommend you collect courier items from the depot before they are sent back to us.

If the delivery fails because the address you supplied is incorrect, we will have to charge you again for redelivery. However, if you get in touch with us before the courier bring is back to us (normally around 3 - 5 days) then there will only be a £15 charge to pay. If you leave it until the item is brought back to us by the courier then you will have the full £25 charge to pay if you want it to be redelivered.

If you decide to cancel the order instead, the standard courier return charge of £15 will be deducted from your refund along with any initial delivery costs.

For international and across the water items, these charges increase proportionately.

Royal Mail Information


All items sent in the mail are sent First Class. You can read all about Royal Mails First Class service here. For items that are worth £32 or less and are less than 1.2KG we generally use Royal Mail First Class delivery. This is because it is significantly cheaper than using our Courier service - these savings are passed on to you. If you really don't want your order to go in the mail for whatever reason - you are welcome to contact us and request a courier delivery instead. We will charge you a small surcharge dependant on what you have already paid for postage and packaging.

If your delivery does not arrive as expected:

PlayRecord.Net emails you the day we despatch your order. If it goes in the mail then the email will state this. You can assume that the day the email was sent is the day that the item was despatched in the mail.

As stated on the Royal Mail web site, First Class mail aims to deliver your letter or packet the next working day, including Saturday. We find that in the vast majority of cases they achieve this turn around time. However there are some occasions when it takes a little longer.

This Link will take you to the Royal Mail page with information for late mail. To summarise, they ask you to wait at least 15 days before assuming that the items has definitely been lost. If after 15 days you have not recieved your item, please contact us and we will issue an insurance claim and despatch the item again for you. If you decide you want a refund instead, please be aware that we are not able to issue a refund until the 15 day period is up. If the item turns up in this time and you still want to cancel the order, you have seven days to return the item to us as stated on the Returns Page.
