Order Placement

Q:  What is the ordering process?

A:  As soon as you place your order, we will pre-authorise your card. However, your card will not be charged. We will then contact our supplier to confirm that the product you have purchased is available for immediate shipment. Once confirmed, we will process the payment and your order will be dispatched. If there is any delay such as an item which is on backorder, we will void the pre-authorisation and contact you to let you know.


Q:  When will I receive my order?

A:  This largely depends on the item but typically between 2 to 14 days.

Q:  Do you deliver internationally?

A:  We only deliver to the United Kingdom.

Q:  What is the warranty period on your products?

A:  There is a manufacturer's warranty on all products and this is dependent on the product type and brand. Please contact customer service on support@firesidedreams.com for further information.
