Payments

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept Visa and Mastercard debit and credit cards.

If you choose to visit us either to browse our extensive Tack Shop and Country Store or just to meet our friendly team, you can also pay using cash or cheque.

Will I be charged VAT?

All orders placed in Pounds Sterling (£) and sent within the United Kingdom or European Union will be subject to VAT (Value Added Tax). This is charged at the prevailing rate for the member state.

When will my card be charged?

Your card will be charged prior to your order leaving us – within 2-3 working days of you placing the order online.

Is your site safe and secure?

Gillett Cook offers online payments through Global Payments. All information exchanged to process the payment is encrypted using SSL protocol. Our SSL certificate is supplied by CyberTill. This data cannot be detected, intercepted or used by third parties and is not kept on your computer systems. If you would like further information, please visit the official Global Payments website.

Why are SSL certificates important?

SSL certificates, also known as digital certificates, are used to establish a secure encrypted connection between a browser and a server. This ensures your sensitive data, like credit card details, is protected.

To ensure the security of your credit card on our website we operate stringent validation checks on payment cards used on our website. We apologise if on occasion this delays the progress of your order but this is something we care strongly about.

If you ever want to check you are on a secure page of any website, just look for the lock symbol in the following places:

-        For Internet Explorer, you will find it in the bottom right hand corner of the screen

-        For Chrome, Safari or Firefox, you will find the lock next to or within the address/search bar if the page is secure.

Plus, the URL at the top of the webpage will change from ‘http; to ‘https’.

Will I be charged a transaction fee?

If your bank’s currency is not Pounds Sterling, you may incur additional transaction fees from your bank or card provider.

We regret that these charges are beyond our control and therefore recommend you check with your bank to understand what transaction fee you may incur prior to placing an order with us.

Will you pass my details on to other companies?

We will ask you whether or not you want to receive mailings from us, and if you would like us to give your name and address (only) to other companies who offer products/services we think would be of interest for you. We will simply take the answer as “no” if you do not agree to receive these. If you have been receiving mailings from us and our partners but no longer wish to do so or you have questions regarding the information we hold in your name, please email us at datacontroller@gillettcook.co.uk.

What currency do you accept?

Currently we are only able to accept Pounds Sterling (£) but will be looking to accept additional currencies in the future.

What personal information do you need and why?

When you create an online account on our website, you will be asked to provide an email address and password. This is required so you can access your order history, place future orders more quickly and manage your account (e.g. delivery address).

When you place an order with us, your address and payment details are required to complete the order. We retain your contact information so that we are able to contact you about your order if required and to speed up your online orders in the future. We do not store your payment information on your online account nor in our system, unless you have requested us to.

If you choose to opt in to receive promotions and marketing emails from us, we will store your email address and contact information in order to send relevant emails to you. You may unsubscribe from these at any time – the simplest way is to click the ‘unsubscribe’ link in one of the emails themselves but if you are unsure, please feel free to Contact Us.

Delivery

What are your delivery options and timescales?

We offer Next Day Delivery in Mainland UK on posted orders for just £6 or free if you spend over £50. Please note this does not include feed and bedding. Feed, bedding and bulk products can only be delivered within the South East as we deliver these in our own Gillett Cook Vans on set delivery days. This delivery is free for orders over £20, simply select the ‘Via Own Van’ delivery option. Please ensure all next day deliveries are placed by 12pm the day before.

Please note: All posted orders require a signature on delivery to ensure your parcel safely arrives with you. If you cannot be in to sign for your parcel, please either arrange for someone else to be in to sign on your behalf or confirm via the tracking information (you will receive an email following dispatch) that you are happy for your parcel to be signed for by and left with a neighbour.

Unfortunately we do not currently offer delivery outside of Mainland United Kingdom via our website. If you would be interested in delivery outside of Mainland UK, please contact us either via email at enquiries@gillettcook.co.uk or via telephone on +44 (0)1795523400.

Do you offer next day delivery?

We offer Next Day Delivery on posted orders for £6.00 within Mainland UK. Place your order before 12pm (GMT), select the Next Day Delivery option at checkout and it will arrive the next working day.

Please note: Next Day Deliveries must be signed for so we can ensure they get to you safely and on-time. Therefore it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure someone is available to sign for the delivery during the day of its expected delivery. Unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility or late delivery if someone is not in to sign for your delivery.

Feed and bedding can be delivered next day across the South East, as long as it is on one of your set delivery days and the order is placed before 12pm.

Can I track my order?

You can! For posted orders, once your order has been dispatched, you will receive an email confirming this with the tracking information. If you do not receive this email within 3 working days of placing your order, please feel free to contact us either via email at orders@gillettcook.co.uk or via telephone on +44 (0)1795523400. For deliveries in the South East, you can find out when your set delivery day is by looking at our postcode guide, or contacting us via our chat box!

What if I am not in when my parcel arrives?

All posted orders require a signature on delivery to ensure your parcel safely arrives with you. If you cannot be in to sign for your parcel, please either arrange for someone else to be in to sign on your behalf or confirm via the tracking information (you will receive an email following dispatch) that you are happy for your parcel to be signed for by and left with a neighbour.

What happens if I don’t receive my order when I expect to?

If you do not receive your order when you expect to, please feel free to contact us either via email at orders@gillettcook.co.uk or via telephone on +44 (0)1795523400.

Can I choose a different address for delivery?

Of course you can. We understand that your delivery address may not be the same as the billing address – it could be the stables, the farm, a friend’s, a neighbour’s, or even the local pub! When you checkout, just make sure to provide the correct billing and delivery addresses in the appropriate fields.

Also, since deliveries require a signature to ensure they arrive to you, please make sure you are at the delivery address when your parcel is expected. We will email you the tracking information so you can keep an eye on its progress.

I hear you offer free local delivery – where does that cover and is there a minimum order value?

You’re right. With a fleet of Gillett Cook vans out and about and a team of friendly delivery drivers, we are able to offer free local delivery within Kent and some surrounding areas on all items from feed and bedding to tack and supplements.

We can even return them to you with your next feed delivery!
