Special Order Items:

Delivery times vary for goods that are 'Special Order'. Although a rough delivery time is written on the listing of any item that is 'Special Order' these may not be accurate and change throughout the year and during peak season due to demand. We are not obligated to meet these delivery times for Special Order Items. Please call before ordering a special order item to get more accurate delivery times. If an item is ordered as 'Special Order' we will endeavour to get it to you as quickly as possible and keep you updated with progress using the contact details you provide at the checkout.

Receiving Items & Damaged Items:

Every care has been taken to prevent any damage happening during transit. However, accidents still happen however rare they are. If you notice that an item is damaged when you recieve it, you must sign for it as damaged & report it to us immediately. Accidents and losses must be reported to us within 14 working days of receipt. Please quote your order number in all correspondence. Go Kayaking can not be held responsibile for damage that has occured during transit & by signing for it as damaged we will be able to arrange a replacement as soon as possible. By not signing for it as damaged then you are agreeing to receive the item in acceptable condition and we can not offer a replacement.

If you are unsure whether an item is damaged, then sign for it as damaged anyway - just in case. If you refuse a delivery because you suspect it might be damaged then we may still charge the initial shipping cost.

Our canoes and kayaks are carefully wrapped in a hard dense cardboard, before being wrapped in a heavy plastic bag. As much as we try to avoid damage in transit, sadly due to the size of the boats and the nature of the couriers some damage is unavoidable.

A new boat that arrives with light scuffing is considered acceptable and un-damaged and would be treated as received in acceptable condition. Light scuffing would be considered marks in no more than 4 different areas and light enough to have blended in after it's been used once. No further action can be taken if a boat arrives in this condition.

Excessive light scuffing, deep gauges and dents are considered to be unacceptable and can be claimed on as long as the goods are signed for as damaged. If you are unsure please sign for the item as damaged. This damage needs to be photographed and reported to us within 14 days of receipt of goods to be able to claim. Once a claim has been launched we will endeavour to replace damaged goods at no extra expense to you and as quickly as possible. If a direct replacement is not available then we will offer the nearest like for like availalbe, or give you the option for the direct replacement at a later date. We may also offer monetary compensation for your to keep the goods as long as the damage does not affect safety, performance, durability or comfort.

It is the managers decision that is final at determining whether your boat has arrived damaged or un-damaged.

You agree that proof of delivery supplied by our delivery company is sufficient evidence to establish that goods have been received.

Delivery Failures:

If a package is returned to us because the delivery has failed then you will be re-charged the listed postage cost to have it delivered again. If for whatever reason you refuse goods on delivery and request them to be returned to us then you may still be charged the initial shipping cost unless we sent them to you in error. If you refuse a delivery because it is damaged then you may still be charged for delivery.

It is the manufacturers decision as to whether it's a fault or not and their decision is final.

Usually manufactureres will require the product back for inspection. If the fault has developed within the first 6 months of purchase it is our responsibility to cover shipping costs from you to us and to the manufacturer and then back to you. If the product developed a fault after 6 months of purchase then it is your responsibility to get the item to the manufacturer for inspection.

If your item is inspected and the fault isn't covered under warranty then the customer is responsible for repair & any onward shipping costs.

Most manufacturers will first look at if a feasible repair can be done to the item before decided whether to replace. The manufactureres decision is final.

If the manufacturer decides to repair the product for a cost that cost will be passed onto the customer. We will endeavour to ensure that you are informed of the cost before any work is done, or we will quote you before sending the item off.

We always try to get a warranty turned around within 2 weeks but this varies dependant on supplier.

Each manufacturer covers different aspects under warranty. Please check the manufacturers warranty policy before discussing with us.
