Here at The Incubator Shop, we believe in offering the fairest and most competitive shipping rates. Since we only operate within the U.K. and Ireland, we have been able to negotiate the best possible rates with DPD and Royal Mail. There's no such thing as a free delivery, since the postman needs wages too! But for all orders over £50, we completely subsidise your delivery costs which enables us to offer a FREE delivery service to England Wales & parts of Scotland.
If you order on a Friday (or a Thursday after 2pm) be aware that the item will arrive Monday. Similarly, if you order on a Sunday, don't expect the parcel Monday... we'll need time to pack it! Weekend orders on a 'Next Working Day' service will arrive with you on Tuesday. For more information on delivery time scales please see below; “When will my order arrive”.
We are an online shop, and like many online shops, we do not have a physical retail shop in which customers can visit or collect from. There is no public access permitted to our premises and we cannot accept any public visitors. This means sadly, we cannot allow customers to collect orders.
Sorry, but due to unprecedented demand and complications due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we cannot current ship outside of the UK.
The only exception is Ireland (Eire). For orders to Ireland, simply add any item to the basket to obtain a precise shipping quotation.
We only repair incubators purchased from ourselves. To proceed with a repair, we'll ask you to provide proof of purchase, as well as the incubator's unique serial number. This will allow us to check if the repair can be undertaken by ourselves.
Note: Any product to be returned for repair or servicing MUST be returned clean and disinfected. This is particularly important to help combat the spread of diseases such as bird flu and is a requirement under DEFRA regulations. Unclean products will not be accepted and will be returned at the customer’s expense.
Please follow this general guide on how to service your incubator:
