If you add special delivery instructions, please leave a signed piece of paper with the same instructions on the outside of your delivery address, as the driver is otherwise not able to leave parcels. If you have left a delivery instruction to, for example, 'leave parcel in garage if not in', we cannot provide you with a proof of delivery, should the parcel go missing. We will, however, provide a proof of shipping, if requested.
You are responsible for any losses suffered as a result of a parcel being left in a location at your specific request.
We offer a complete refurbishment service for the Britannia Fireworld extinguishers when they are 10 years old or in cases where they are accidentally discharged or damaged.

A Britannia Fireworld extinguisher cannot be refurbished to last beyond 20 years and must be completely replaced at this time. The cost of the refurbishment includes collection and re-delivery from and to you or your client's premises
