Answers to frequently asked questions.
Stock & Product Availability
How long before my order is ready?
We are usually able to process all orders within 1-3 business days. If we encounter delays, we will of course keep you informed. Please ensure your contact details are correct when placing your order.
Do you keep all products in stock?
We strive to keep good levels of stock at all times, however our showroom and warehouse do not have infinite capacity, and so sometimes we will need to source items from our many suppliers.
We will of course inform you of any fulfilment delays we encounter, however you are welcome to contact us to check stock before placing an order.
Certain brands maintain very limited global stock, some products are only available as special order items, and some are even manufactured to order for our customers.
The situation changes constantly with the ebb & flow of global supply, distribution, and component availability. If your order is time-sensitive, please do contact us before placing an order and we can provide the latest supply information regarding any specific product or brand.
Orders & Returns
How do I place an order?
Enter your billing address, and your shipping address (please note that we only ship to UK destinations – please see Collection & Shipping FAQ), choose a payment method, then click pay now.
If you have a valid Express Checkout method installed on your device (Apple Pay, Google Pay, MS Pay etc), you will be given the option to BUY NOW instead of using the normal checkout process. Please note all Express Checkout options require a compatible browser and valid payment method, otherwise the option will not be displayed.
Once your transaction has completed, you will be notified on-screen and by email, and your order will become visible in your account area.
Do I need an account to place an order?
No, although creating an account allows you to track your order and store your purchase history with Unilet.
If you do not already have an online account with us, you can create a new account as part of the checkout process.
Guest purchases are permitted, but we still require a billing address, a shipping address and contact details for every transaction. It’s simpler to just create an account.
How can I return a product?
Please contact us first before arranging to return any product. We will be able to advise on the best way to facilitate your return, and also arrange any refund which may become due.
Please note that in ALL cases we will require proof of purchase, and all goods must be in original condition, including packaging, unless otherwise discussed and agreed with our team. Read more about your statutory rights concerning returns & refunds.
Who should I contact if I have any queries?
Any member of the Unilet team will usually be able to assist, however if previous queries have been dealt with by a particular staff member, please feel free to ask for them by name when you contact us.
What payment methods are accepted?
Our website accepts all major electronic forms of payment, including Apple Pay, Google Pay, Microsoft Pay, all popular Credit / Debit cards, and PayPal.
In addition, if you visit our showroom you may also pay in cash, and we can arrange to receive a direct transfer from your bank account.
We can also offer trade-in or part-exchange deals as partial payment.
Can I reserve online and pay in-store?
Yes, certainly. Please choose Click & Collect as your shipping method, and Pay On Collection as your payment method during the checkout process.
We will notify you directly your order is ready for collection at our South-West London showroom, at which point you can visit, pay, and collect your goods.
Do you store my payment details?
In short, no.
All data regarding your credit card, debit card, express checkout payments (Apple Pay, Google Pay, MS Pay etc) and PayPal information is securely encrypted and passed to our payment partners at the point of verification only.
If you choose to store your payment details for future use, our system uses a standard token-and-API method to securely store your encrypted data with our verified payment partners. Your data is not stored on our website, and we have no way of accessing it.
