Delivery Policy


Delivery Policy

The majority of our items are sent out by Royal Mail second class post provided they are under 2kgs.

Please allow 10 working days from receipt of your order for delivery, however more often than not the items are dispatched and delivered within 3-4 working days. Sometimes these items will be too big to go through a letter box and may need to be collected from the local Post Office Sorting Depot.

For bigger items over 2kgs and items such as Nestboxes, we use Parcel Force 48 hour delivery service. All Parcel Force deliveries have to be signed for. If you are not likely to be home please contact the Trust office to arrange an alternative delivery point or address. We will notify you by e-mail that the item has been collected from our offices, if you do not receive it within 4/5 working days of the notification please contact the office so that we can track the whereabouts of the item with the carrier.

We cannot deliver Nestboxes or very large packages anywhere other than mainland England, Wales and Scotland (this includes all UK islands, the Channel Isles and all of Ireland) where parcels have to be delivered by ferry

Tree Nestboxes are generally made to order so please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery unless otherwise stated at the top of the Nestbox page. If in doubt please contact us before making the order.

We will do our best to ensure that your goods are received by you in perfect condition however we are not responsible for damage which occurs once the goods have left our possession. If the parcel you receive is damaged please tell the delivery person (Parcel Force) or if received by post (Royal Mail-the Post Office), make sure it is noted on their records, and keep the details yourself as the information may be required at a later date to make a claim against their insurer. Royal Mail claims have to be carried out initially by the recipient.

The Barn Owl Trust is dedicated to conservation & education and does not operate a visitor centre.
