Our delivery partner

Our courier is DPD, Pipers Farm and its employees cannot be held responsible for our courier’s failure to deliver to the specified time due to adverse weather conditions or other circumstances beyond our control. In these instances, we will, however, make our best efforts to correct the problem. Please contact our Customer Care Team on 01392 881 380 or email support@pipersfarm.com to discuss your concerns.

DPD offer a ‘predict’ delivery service whereby they inform customers of a one-hour delivery window notified by SMS and/or email – so you don’t have to wait in all day. Additionally, you can watch the progress of your delivery driver on a real-time map. If your plans change and you’re not able to sign for your order, DPD offer a range of ‘in flight’ options such as: deliver to neighbour, have the parcel delivered to a safe place, collect your parcel from a local pickup shop.

7.2 When we will provide your goods. You are able to choose an available delivery date and details when you order goods. We will confirm this in a confirmation email to you. We will try to deliver on your selected date/time but such delivery dates/times are estimates only and we will notify you if your goods are not able to be despatched within the agreed timescale for any reason. 

7.3 We are not responsible for delays outside of our control. If our supply of your goods is delayed by an event outside of our control then we will contact you as soon as practically possible. We will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any goods you have paid for but not received. 

7.4 If you are not at home when your goods are delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we may follow the instructions you have given us of where to leave the goods in the circumstances. If we leave the goods on your doorstep or with a neighbour, and they are stolen or damaged, we do not accept any liability and may offer you a refund or other compensation at our complete discretion.

7.5 If you do not re-arrange delivery. If you do not collect the goods from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from us we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and condition 10.2 will apply.

7.6 When you become responsible for and own the goods. The goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the goods to the address you gave us or you collect them from us. You own goods once we have received payment in full.

7.7 What will happen if you do not give the required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply your goods to you, for example, the quantity of food and the delivery address. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the goods on our website. We will contact you to ask for this information if not provided. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and condition 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the goods late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it. 

7.8 Reasons we may delay the supply of goods to you. We may have to delay the supply of goods to deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes, update the goods or packaging to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and/or make changes to the goods as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 6).
