Delivery times for orders will vary according to availability of products. Mediaspec use DPD couriers to collect our packages from our depot, and if required, customers can obtain a DPD tracking number to allow the tracking of parcel. If your email address is provided at the time of purchase, we usually pass this information onto DPD, who will email you an expected time of arrival within an hour timeframe.
On the day of delivery, our courier, DPD, will arrive with your order. It is important that someone is available to accept delivery of the parcel and have to remind you that, if it is delivered to a business address, it is your responsibility to ensure that any reception staff are authorised to accept delivery on your behalf.
We would urge you inspect the parcel on delivery to ensure that it has not been damaged in transit and refer you to the terms and conditions of using DPD. By placing an order with us you do accept these conditions of carriage.
It is worthwhile inspecting the items for damage before you sign for delivery. Please note that damaged or missing items must be reported within 24 hours. Unfortunately, courier companies insist that collections cannot be made from their depot.
Delivery is during normal working hours, Monday – Friday, and normally by 2-day courier. (Some parts of Scotland and Ireland may take longer). Please allow up 7 working days for delivery.
If you are not in when the courier attempts to deliver they will put a card through your door with a contact telephone number on so that you can re-arrange delivery.

CANCELLATIONS AND RETURNS
Under the conditions outlined in the EU Consumer Rights Directive and in Section 4.2, Mediaspec operates a 14 day cooling-off returns policy for products that are still in their original condition. This allows UK and EU customers to cancel their order up to 14 days after receipt of their goods. If you wish to cancel your order during this 14-day period, please notify us in writing by letter or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. A telephone call is not sufficient without the express written approval from Mediaspec
The right to return goods to us as mentioned in Section 4.1 does NOT apply in the following situations:
- Financed Goods - Goods purchased on finance cannot be returned under the 14-days cooling off period. Financed goods are conditional based sales where the consumer is bound to purchase the goods from the outset but do not own the goods until they have fulfilled all conditions of the contract (typically through complete payment of all financial instalments).
- Special Orders - Any order which has been specified or customized to the customers specifications. This also includes any item which is not typically stocked by Mediaspc and has been ordered in at the request of the customer.
- Health and Safety - any product that has come in contact with a customer's ear or mouth, such as microphones, headphones, earphones or product with a mouthpiece that have been used or where the hygienic seal has been separate or broken.
- Software, Media and CDs - where the packaging has been unsealed (unless the product is faulty) and copyright policies apply, any product registered via digital or physical means becomes immediately exempt for any returns.
If you wish to exercise your right to cancel this contract within the cancellation period, you should return the goods to us within within 14 days and take reasonable care in doing as detailed in the EU Consumer Rights Directive (2011/83/EU). The risk and cost of returning the goods to us shall be accepted by you unless you have notified us that the goods have arrived damaged or faulty (Section 3.4) and this has been verified by us.
As outline in the EU Consumer Rights Directive (2011/83/EU), failure to return items in their original condition will result in deducations from your refund or refusal of a return. As a result, we may make deductions to your refund for any diminution in value of the returned goods where the handling of goods has "gone beyond the sort of handling that might reasonably be allowed in a store"
Upon cancellation of the contract we will credit your account with a full refund for the goods. Normally refunds are processed the same day if the goods haven't been dispatched or on the day of receiving the goods back, however, in any event, not later than 14 days after receipt of the cancelled goods. If you do not return the goods or do not pay the costs of delivery to us, we shall be entitled to deduct the direct cost of recovering the goods from the amount of the refund.
