Delivery and Shipping

Because of new Legislation, from the 1st of October 2007 we are not allowed to send Air Rifles, Air Pistols or Silencers through the post.

We now deliver all the Airguns we sell using our own Transport, we aim to delivery all airguns within a 35-mile radius of the store, the rest of the items we sell on our website are sent via ParcelForce 48-hour service.

Products are delivered to the address specified by the customer on the purchase order, or where necessary to a works or alternative address by prior arrangement and only to geographic zones that we service. Please note that where goods are delivered to an address which is not the home address you will still need to produce a photo i.d. and proof of address such as a utility bill. We need to be able to verify your age, address and that the goods have been paid for by the person we are delivering to.

 

Shipping and Handling Delivery Terms

Where we use a third party to make a delivery (as with any shipment), a delay or loss of goods is possible. In such a case, the carrier shall start an investigation. Every effort is made, for as long as necessary, to find the package. If the package is not found, the carrier will reimburse Pellpax who will then deliver a new, identical package to the customer free of charge.

We shall not be held responsible for delayed delivery times due to the carrier, including for the loss of goods, bad weather, strikes or delays due to Corona Virus.

Airguns are exempt from this policy due to the new VCR Act.

 

Loss or Damage in Transit

Bristol Airguns will not be responsible for damage or loss of goods or part thereof in transit or for any discrepancy between the goods delivered and the goods ordered unless the customer gives written or email notice of a claim to Bristol Airguns and the carrier within three (3) business days of delivery.

In the event of damage of goods or part thereof in transit or for any discrepancy between the goods delivered and the goods ordered, the customer must hold the goods and make them available for inspection or collection by Bristol Airguns or its representatives on request.

Faulty Goods and Exchanges

All products leave our premises in perfect condition. The customer must notify the carrier of even the slightest trace of damage (holes, signs of crushing, etc.) to the parcel prior to opening the parcel, and refuse the package if necessary.
