Making a purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our on-line catalogue, click the 'Add to Cart' button on any items you wish to buy. Your shopping cart is always on view, on the right of the screen.

After you have finished your selections, click on "Checkout" and you will be asked for a few details which we need to be able to satisfy the order. Alteratively, to delete items from your shopping cart at any time, simply hit the 'remove' button in the shopping cart section of the page. You can also manually up-date the quantities required if necessary before proceeding to the checkout.

We accept credit card payment. If you are shopping from outside the U.K., place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction to your currency. (We provide approximated dollar, yen and Euro values but the Internet is full of currency converter programmes, just put 'currency convertor' into your search engine.) The precise conversion rate is decided by your credit card company at the time of purchase.

We accept most credit and debit cards, including American Express. We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship. Back ordered items are not charged until they are shipped.

Payment by cheque is no longer accepted.

We recognise that whilst many of our customers enjoy the efficiency of ordering over the Internet, other customers may like to visit us at our shop in Chesham, Bucks., England. If you do visit us, please note that the heavy overheads involved in running a shop, mean that the prices of goods may be different than that shown on the Internet.

Please note that where the card holder name and address do not match the shipping address, an order may be subject to delay (whilst we make security checks) or even cancellation. It is an offence to order goods using the credit card of a third party.

Shipping and Handling

Our standard shipping service is Royal Mail 1st Class delivery. Depending on the value of the item shipped, we may use their Tracked service which requires a signature. In most cases we are happy to deliver to a work place address or to a neighbour if you are going to be out when your postman calls.

Some items which are too long for delivery via Royal Mail recorded delivery i.e. over 92cm long, will go via Parcel Force's 48 hour service. This applies mainly to shepherds crooks and thumbsticks.

Overseas parcels weighing up to 2kg will be sent via Royal Mail's International Airsure service. Parcels in excess of this weight will go via Parcel Force's standard International delivery.

Delivery Schedule

Where we have the item ordered in stock, it will be despatched the same day if the order is placed before 3.00p.m., or the next working day otherwise. If the item is not in stock and this is likely to mean we are unable to ship within 10 days, we will be in touch to advise of the new lead time, or to offer an alternative product.

Royal Mail First Class delivery (which is our standard service) is not guaranteed to be delivered next day but we find that in most cases, it is delivered next day. The exception tends to be highlands and Islands where delivery usually takes 2 days. Obviously if Royal Mail staff members are involved in industrial action at any time, this may have an adverse affect on deliveries. We will however do our best to make alternative arrangements if delays become prolonged.

International deliveries weighing up to 2kg usually arrive at most destinations in 5-8 working days. This does not however take into account local Customs delays. Parcels weighing over 2kg can take up to 28 working days to arrive but in our experience, even tend to arrive in Australia after about 10 working days.

If your parcel fails to arrive, please notify us within 20 days of despatch, or we will be unable to trace the parcel or to reimburse for loss.

Age Restriction

Some products on this site are age-restricted and we will only sell these to people who are over 18. To prove your age and enable the purchase of age-restricted products, you must resgister with us and send us evidence of your age. If you are interested in buying age-restricted products such as knives from us, please register then send a copy of your birth certificate, driving licence or passport showing evidence of your age, in an envelope marked "confidential" to:
Sara Clark
Cox the Saddler
23 High Street
Chesham
Buckinghamshire
HP5 1BG

We will then keep your documentation safely and enable you to buy these products in future.

If you have any questions about this, please contact us on 01494 775577. Age verification is a legal requirement for some products and we have chosen this method to keep costs to a minimum, so we do not have to pass any extra costs onto you, the customer.

Back Orders

If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. Most items return to stock within around 10 days but you will usually be contacted, with the option to cancel your order, in case you would rather not wait.

Cancellation

Customers in the European Union have the right to withdraw from the purchase of an item within fourteen working days of the day after the date the item is delivered. That means the date of the final shipment if it was shipped in parts. This applies to all our products, except for items which are made-to-measure e.g. Gorringe jodhpurs. We regret that neither can we accept cancellations of contracts for the purchase of items cut from a roll e.g. leather strapping or cut to size e.g. walking sticks.

Please note that we cannot accept returns if you deliver them to us by hand.

For your protection, we recommend that you use a recorded, insured delivery service.

You should be aware that once we begin the delivery process, you will not be able to cancel any contract you have with us for additional services carried out by us (e.g. personalisation).

If we have already taken money for your order, as soon as we receive notice of your cancellation, we will refund the relevant part of the purchase price for that item, together with the item's normal postage charge. We cannot refund any priority, express or courier component of the postage charge.

Returns Policy

In the event that you are not totally happy with your purchase for any reason, we are pleased to refund or replace. The goods must be returned to us, in a saleable condition, within 30 days of the date of despatch. We only ask that you pay the return postage to us using Royal Mail recorded delivery. Any discrepancies in the goods received must also be reported within 30 days of the date of despatch. Please note that we do not refund for items which are made-to-measure e.g. Gorringe jodhpurs, cut from a roll such as the leather strapping or cut to size like a walking stick, as these are not saleable once returned.

Please note our resin head collectors and silver plated canes may be used for light balance but are not suitable for heavy use or orthopaedic support. Care should be taken not to drop the cane to avoid denting the silver plate or chipping the lacquered shaft. These are collectors’ canes, and need to be handled with care. Collectors’ canes are not designed for orthopaedic use. If dropped on a hard surface, the resin heads will shatter. We will not issue refunds for damaged heads.

In the case of faulty or damaged goods being received, or if the goods received differ from those ordered, enclose a receipt for the return postage (you must use Royal Mail Recorded delivery only) and we will refund that too.

The parcel must be clearly marked with a returns number which can be obtained by emailing returns@saddler.co.uk explaining the situation.

Goods being returned from outside the UK, must state clearly on the packaging that the parcel contains 'Returned Goods', otherwise the parcel may be impounded by UK Customs and Excise. Please use standard insured mail, rather than a courrier, otherwise again the goods will be impounded.

Please note that if you ask us to replace the item with a different size for example, we will charge postage and handling at the rate of £4.95 to the UK or according to original price otherwise.

WEEE Regulations

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now U K law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.

The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Much of the UK's WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill. Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.

Saddler are obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when you buy from us a new Electrical or Electronic product.

For example, if a customer bought a new EEE item from us we would accept their old WEEE item and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.

CUSTOMERS SAY

Hi Paul, my new martingale arrived very promptly in Western Australia, picked up today 16th July from our PO Box, thanks very much.
Cheers,
Lyn


Lyn H., Western Australia
Just to let you know that I am delighted with the replacement leather seat which is a perfect fit. Thank you for the excellent service. Regards

Thomas B., Glasgow
Hi Paul,

Thank you for such a speedy delivery and apologies for not contacting you sooner. Your service is excellent.

The hat was so well packed that it was not bent or crushed at all. It looks better than expected and is a perfect size and shape. Now that the cooler weather has arrived (sadly) I shall be getting plenty of wear out of it particularly on dog walks.

Kind regards

Geraldine P., Berkshire
Hello Sara and Paul,

Many thanks for the great service, the straps arrived in the post on the day after I'd ordered them. Very impressed and will, without doubt, look to buying from you in the future and recommend you to friends and family.

The straps are for an old Saddler wicker picnic basket which was a gift from my mother many years ago and which I'm now refitting for my eldest son. One of the straps had been lost during a picnic on a visit to Norfolk twenty years ago, and I can't remember when I lost the other one!

You should congratulate yourselves on such good service.

Best regards,

Linda H., Essex
Hello Sara and Paul,
I have received my jacket and it is fantastic.

Matthew F., New York
Good Morning Sara,

The shooting stick arrived this morning and it is truly wonderful, thank you. I’m so glad to be buying something that’s not made in China!

Thank you all once again for a beautiful item and for such lovely, friendly service.

Kindest wishes to all,

Timothy F., Melbourne, Australia
Hi Sara, Great service, excellent selection and price, and my coat arrived within 24 hours of ordering! What's not to like? I will definitely buy again from Cox the Saddler.

Michael K., Berkshire
Good Morning Sara and Paul,

Hello Paul,

Thank you for the first class service you gave me. The unit arrived next day and was fitted about 10 minutes later.

(Antler wanted the case back before they would quote!).

I am more than happy with everything.


Anthony H., Leicestershire
Hello Sara and Paul,

I picked up the Border and hood this morning. It fits perfectly. I am very very very happy.

The coat was a birthday gift from my partner.

I hope to see you in the flesh when we visit Chesham.
