Dispatch and Delivery
As an Irish company, we use An Post and couriers to deliver all orders. We aim to dispatch all orders within 3 working days. During busy seasons such as October to December dispatch may take a little longer. Personalised items will take up to 7 days to dispatch.
We keep our shipping charges as low as possible by using a combination of An Post and couriers depending on the destination and the size/weight of your order. We use tracked shipping to Ireland as standard with regular postage to Europe for all of our uniforms unless otherwise stated in the product description. Complimentary shipping is available on orders over a value of €75. This is automatically applied at checkout.
Estimated delivery times
We use tracked shipping as standard for parcels delivered to Ireland. Personalised ID cards are dispatched with standard mail. Delivery times can vary depending on the destination and on the local postage conditions but it is typically 1-2 days from dispatch. At seasonal peaks from October to December there may be delays outside of our control.
Whilst we really try to get your order to you as quickly as possible local postal conditions are out of our control and delays can occur. If you have not received your order within 15 working days of dispatch then please please get in touch with us on Customer Care with your order number and we will follow up and make sure your order has not gone missing.
In the event that a package is not delivered within 30 working days of dispatch customers will be refunded the cost of the order or if the item is in stock they may be offered a replacement. Please note: once a notice of delivery is recorded via the carrier as per tracking details it is deemed that the package has been successfully delivered.
All orders are sent to the specified delivery address. In the event that an order is returned to us due to an incomplete or incorrect address the customer is liable for any repeat delivery charges incurred. Items returned to us in these circumstances will be refunded minus a €7.50 charge.
Carriers may offer recipients the option to redirect their delivery or indicate a secure location for drop off. In the event that a customer redirects the order or changes the delivery address or terms of delivery after it has been dispatched then this is a matter between the customer and the delivery service. My Little Uniform bears no responsibility for orders which have been misplaced or lost if delivery instructions are changed after an order has been dispatched.
Customs & Duty charges
Customers are responsible for any customs or local taxes incurred. Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing what customs charges local agencies will apply, if any. In the event that a customer does not accept local customs charges where applied and the customer’s order is returned to us the customer remains liable for the initial shipping and returns costs.
For children’s costumes the VAT rate applicable is 0%.
