Shipping And Handling
Depending on the size and nature of each order we use a number of reputable couriers, this enables us to arrange delivery to your home, work or neighbour’s address and provide a flexible service.
Small orders (1 to 4 heaters) received before 2pm on Mon to Fri will be despatched the same day via our courier of choice on a 24hr service, and are delivered in accordance with their conditions of carriage which are available on request. Orders received after 2pm will be despatched the next day. Please note: UK mainland only, some areas such as the Scottish Highlands may take longer.
When your order is despatched we will email you with details of the courier used and a tracking number if available. Orders will normally be delivered between the hours of 9am and 5pm; unfortunately we are unable to specify an exact time.
A signature will be required by the person accepting your delivery and will indicate that the order has been accepted in good condition. Unfortunately, we are unable to have our heaters left without signature even if it is a safe location. Our heaters are well packed and checked before despatching, however in the unlikely event of your order arriving damaged please refuse the delivery and contact us immediately so we can arrange replacements.
If you are not at home to receive your order, the courier will leave a card with details on how to contact them to rearrange delivery. They may also automatically re-attempt to deliver the following day if no contact has been made.
For larger orders (5+ heaters) we will despatch on a pallet. We will contact you within 24hrs of receiving your order to arrange a suitable day for delivery. If you have any special delivery instructions please let us know by filling in the relevant section during the check out procedure.

Ducasa-Direct.co.uk recognises that by carrying out our business the environment can be affected and we accept our environmental responsibilities.
Our aim is to:
– Comply with the requirements of environmental legislation and approved codes of practice
– Promote environmental good practice within our company
– Reduce pollution, emissions and waste

Please do not throw electrical equipment in your bin, including items with a crossed out wheelie bin symbol.
This is because:
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste.
Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment.
If you do not recycle electrical items they will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.
In the UK, distributors including retailers must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge.
As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by offering all customers buying new electrical equipment free take-back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
Unwanted items should be returned to Heattend Products Ltd, T/A Ducasa-direct.co.uk, H1 Abbey Farm Commercial Park, Horsham St Faith, Norwich NR10 3JU within 28 days of purchasing your new product.
Simply send your unwanted item to us and we will recycle it for free.
