At Sweatband.com, we're obsessed with making sure that all of our clients have a fantastic experience in purchasing from us. This page contains information to help you select and order products that you may need to receive in time for Christmas.
Checking Availability & Last Order Dates
In order to ensure that the only surprise with your Christmas order from Sweatband.com is the delight on the recipient's face, rather than risking the stress of your order not arriving in time, it's important that you check stock availability as well as the last order cut-off information for the products you're ordering as gifts:
Our product detail pages display stock availability information. As can be seen on the right, this is displayed to the right of the product images, below the 'Buy Now' button. If you're browsing a product with options (colours, sizes etc.), you first need to select the specific options in order to see the accurate stock availability information.
If you're purchasing an item that is intended as a xmas gift, it's advisable to order items that are showing as being 'in stock'. Typically, when the availability field is showing 'more on way', it means that it could take anywhere between 2 and 10 days for the items to arrive into our distribution centre from the manufacturers and even if you place your order before the cut-offs (explained below), we may not be able to dispatch the item in time to reach you before Xmas. If you are ordering an item whose stock status is showing "More on way" for Xmas, please do mention that the order is a Xmas present in the special instructions box that you will see as you check out through the site (just before payment information). With this information, our customer services team will pro-actively contact you if there is a problem with getting your item to you in time and will likely be able to provide advice on alternatives that can be delivered in time.
Last Order Dates
Our extensive range covers items of all different shapes, sizes and weights from a swimming cap that fits in an envelope to treadmills that weigh over 150kg and require specialist 2-man delivery crews! As such, we use a variety of different delivery companies and the choice of courier used is determined by the items in your order.
Each of our couriers has a different last order cut-off for deliveries to arrive in time for Christmas. Each of our product detail pages contains a tab called "Delivery" and when selected, this will show the deadlines for Xmas deliveries for the specific item being viewed on the product page.
Please do remember to take stock availability (explained above) into consideration as well.
Finally, it should be noted that these last order dates are based on information provided to us by our carriers. Whilst most have built in a margin of error, it should be noted that external factors beyond our control such as vehicle breakdowns and adverse weather conditions may cause delays to your orders.
