Shipping and Return Policy

Small items are normally posted within 3 working days unless they are not in stock. You will be notified if item(s) are out of stock.

Delivery of large items / custom orders can vary and are subject to change. You will be notified of your approximate delivery date.

Free collection is available if collecting from our premises. Please contact us to confirm whether the item is in stock first. Visits to our premises are by appointment only.

All of our items are posted with proof of posting or tracking.

For large orders it is your responsibility to ensure that you are available for delivery of your order. Cosy Tortoises will not be held liable for any charges incurred.

Damaged items(s) must be reported to Cosy Tortoises within 24 hours of being delivered. Please report this in writing. Photographic evidence may be required. Cosy Tortoises will then advise you on the correct course of action to take so that damaged item(s) can be replaced promptly.

Our return policy is simple. You may return your item(s) within 7 days from receipt of your order. The item(s) must not be used and remain in the original packaging with instructions if applicable. You will be required to pay both inwards and outwards postage charges to return item(s) to Cosy Tortoises. This excludes custom orders which cannot be returned.

Custom orders are non-refundable unless Cosy Tortoises fail to deliver your order within an agreed period.

Colour upgrades are considered to be Custom Orders and therefore cannot be cancelled unless Cosy Tortoises fail to deliver your order within an agreed period.

Cosy Tortoises cannot guarantee the colour, design or measurements chosen by the customer. By placing a custom order, you have accepted all of our terms and conditions.

Delivery times are approximate. Cosy Tortoises will not be held liable for charges due to delays in the manufacturing of your order.

Refunds and cancellations (excluding custom orders) will be refunded within 14 days. Please send your refund request by recorded delivery to ensure we are aware of your cancellation request.

Cosy Tortoises cannot guarantee that the paint colour chosen will look the same as displayed on the website, due to variation in product colour by the manufacturer and natural variations of the wood. Cosy Tortoises applies at least one coat of preservative wood paint or stain and recommends further coats are applied after delivery according to the paint manufacturer's instructions. At least one further coat of paint is recommended so that any movement of external surfaces in transit are sealed thoroughly to ensure the house is weatherproof.

Some of the electrical items provided by Cosy Tortoises will need to be fitted by a qualified electrician.

Full Assembly Instructions are always provided for any large item requiring partial assembly in their final location. Cosy Tortoises are not liable for assembly costs.

For large orders such as the All-Season Houses, Tortoise Tables and Tortoise Runs, it is your responsibility to take care when handling the products and moving them around. Safety protection and equipment should be used when appropriate.

Cosy Tortoises will not be liable for any extra charges incurred as a result of a delayed or cancelled order.
