Our courier DPD is temporarily suspending the need for deliveries to be signed for and will instead take a photograph as proof of delivery. Note there will still need to be someone in to receive the delivery.
When you receive your delivery window (1 hour time slot) from DPD you will be able to specify a safe place or neighbour to deliver to direct with them, we cannot do this on your behalf. DPD have now advised that if you are not in for delivery on first attempt then your parcel will be delivered the same day direct to your local DPD Pickup Shop for you to collect.
DPD state they will no longer be doing second delivery attempts and we cannot arrange for second attempts to be made.
GREAT NEWS !
Advance Mobility Freedom Update
The first shipment of the Advance Mobility Freedom has now left China and is due to arrive in the UK at the end of September.
It will take a few days to clear customs and we will give priority to the many customers who have placed Pre-Orders.
Much of this first shipment is already pre-ordered but a second shipment is due later in October. We will change our web page to state that stocks are due end October for new pre-orders but it maybe earlier.
If you would like to reserve one for yourself (and we won't want any payment details until we actually have stocks to send out) then either:
- call us with your details, 01363 881110
- pre-order online at Advance Mobility Freedom. As you go through the checkout select the Payment Option "Pre-Order pay when available".
We will allocate stocks and update you with information on the shipment but if circumstances change between when you pre-order and arrival of stock then it is very simple to cancel.
Regrettably the smaller Advance Mobility Independence/Independence MAX models have been discontinued.
Now that the UK is not a member of the EU you will be liable for any local taxes charged in your country. The Advance Mobility Freedom has a Customs HS Code 87131000 (or 87150000) accessories are Customs HS Code 87142000 both of which should be 0%. Some countries, make a small fixed charge for Importing which is not related to what the goods are, e.g. Italy €9.
We will not charge you VAT because we are exporting the goods but your Customs will charge you Standard Rate VAT, the rate varies cross different countries. We understand that in the Republic of Ireland individuals can reclaim VAT on goods purchased due to a childs special needs, see Republic of Ireland Revenue Services
It may be that this is also true in other countries, we recommend you contact your Revenue services to find out.
Once we have dispatched your order our Courier will do the Customs Clearance administration and collect on behalf of your government any taxes/VAT due. They will contact you to obtain payment of any amounts plus an admin fee before delivery. In most EU countries the admin fee is €5 or €6,50 but in Italy and Austria €18 (Spain is a sliding scale).
It may seem a lot of extra work for what was once easy but sadly it is something we will all need to get used to.
