All items sent from our Dunstable depot are despatched via DPD Local, or DPD Europe, and will require a signature on delivery. Items sent directly from a manufacturer or distributor may use a different carrier service.
If no one is available to sign for the consignment a calling card will normally be left, with details on how to arrange re-delivery or when & where you can collect your consignment
Items cannot be left unattended; but you can nominate a different delivery address from your billing address at the time of ordering, eg neighbour, family or work address.

Our Shipment Policy
When you place an order, we'll estimate despatch and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and the delivery options you choose.
We use third party transport companies for the delivery of items. Goods despatched by Cardno Ltd remain our responsibility until the delivery is made and the customer has signed for the goods. Your contract is with Cardno Ltd and not our transport companies.
Damage caused 'in transit' must be communicated by the customer to Cardno Ltd. Cardno Ltd will then make appropriate arrangements with our courier to retrieve and replace goods.

You can return your purchase to us in its original condition within 30 days of the date you received the item, clothing must have labels attached and we will issue a full refund for the price you paid for the item.
In the event of sending you a damaged or defective item, you must advise Cardno Ltd immediately and return the item to Cardno Ltd within 30 days. Cardno Ltd will send out a replacement once the damaged or defective item has been returned.

Products Your Business Can Rely On
All of our slings, wire rope assemblies, chain assemblies and block & tackle are supplied with the appropriate certification, in compliance with LOLER regulations and British/European standards.
Each product is labelled or stamped with a unique identification number, which appears on the certification documentation. This allows for a traceable audit trial, from component/assembly manufacture through to the end user of the product.
Cardno takes certification very seriously. Proof of source is extremely important to our business and we do our utmost to pass on this importance to our clients businesses.
