Nobody Home Policy / Difficulty Locating Address
Every effort will be made to have your products delivered on the date you have requested but specific delivery times or dates cannot be guaranteed.
We ask our delivery drivers to always use their good judgment when it comes to delivering parcels when they are faced with a situation that nobody is home.
So generally speaking, this is what tends to happen:
- The driver will call the recipient on the number you have provided to get directions from them if needed. Our couriers will only call the number provided if direction is needed to the delivery address and not to arrange a delivery
- The next step we will take is to leave the parcel with a neighbour where possible and leave a calling card in the door to advise your recipient where their parcel has been delivered.
- If all else fails we will bring it back to base and await further instructions from you, the sender. Delivery will be attempted twice before the parcel is returned to us if no details have been clarified. We cannot accept the cancellation of an order after delivery has been attempted. No refunds in this instance can be provided.
- Risk and title
The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.
- Price and payment
The price of any Products will be as quoted on the site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
Prices exclude any delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due. More information about our delivery charges can be found here www.grainnook.ie.
Unless otherwise stated, promotional codes cannot be used against purchases of Gift Vouchers or redeemed against delivery charges.
Despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on the site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have confirmed your order, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing.
Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card, PayPal. We accept payment by all major credit and debit cards. We will charge your credit or debit card when you place your order.
22. Our refund policy
We will provide a refund where:
(a) you have cancelled the Contract between us and returned the Product within 28 days if you are dealing as a consumer;
(b) a Product that you claim is defective or has been damaged in transport to you is returned to us within 14 days of delivery and is found by us to be defective or damaged in transport; or
(c) you notify us that you do not agree to a change in our Terms occurring between you placing your order and receiving a Dispatch Confirmation.
When you return a Product to us because you:
(d) have cancelled the Contract between us within the 28 days cancellation period, we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the Product in full. If you have returned the Product to us within the 7 day cooling off period that you are entitled to by law, we will also refund any delivery charges paid by you. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us;
(e) claim that the Product is defective or has been damaged in transport, we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time.

Products returned by you because of a defect or damage in transport will be refunded in full, including a refund of the delivery charges for sending the item to you and the cost incurred by you in returning the item to us; or
(f) have notified us that you do not agree to a change in these Terms or in any related policies, we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice. On condition that any Product dispatched to you is returned in the condition in which you received it, we will refund the price of the Product in full, including any delivery charges paid by you.
