As part of the initial order confirmation process, we will request Pre-Authorisation of payment from your card issuer, this will show as a pending transaction for the full value of the order, this payment will only remain pending for a limited time should we not be able to complete your order. Payment is captured when we Dispatch goods to you.
If you are purchasing a Pre-order Item which isn’t currently in stock we will still process a Pre-Authorisation when the order is first placed but depending on the time until stock becomes available we may need to process a new transaction capturing relevant funds at that point when stock arrives. Please make sure you have adequate funds in your account around the stock due date.
FIresmiths reserves the right to decline orders for bulk or high value purchases and to change price and availability information without notice.

If you do not wish for an alternative product we will cancel the order and any pending transaction promptly, please be aware that funds may take 14 days to reallocate in your account.
In the event that we do not receive all of an order from a supplier Pre-orders will be fulfilled in chronological order, we will contact any customers whom have missed out with either alternatives or refunds as mentioned above.
Pre-Order dates are provisional and although we do receive most stock on time we cannot be held responsible for any costs incurred for your time, or services you've paid for if there are delays or non-supply of product.

We therefore advise that you contact us, preferably by telephone, very promptly after placing your order if you wish to cancel. In the event that the manufacture of the “made to order” item/s has not already begun, cancelling the order will not be an issue. In this instance, we will issue a full refund or credit note.
- PRE- ORDER ITEMS
Firesmiths will initially Pre-authorise funds for the full order total at the point of ordering, however payment is captured for all pre-ordered items just before they are dispatched from our warehouse or, in the case of personalised items, payment is captured before they are sent for personalisation. Therefore, Pre-Authorised funds may reallocate into your account if stock arrives more than 5 days after the order is placed, a new transaction will then be processed when stock arrives, please ensure you have funds available near the expected stock due date.

If you do not receive your parcel within the specified delivery time shown in the Basket, please track your parcel using the information provided in the Dispatch notification you received from us, if this doesn't assist with locating your parcel please contact us by phone or email.
We ask that we be given sufficient time to investigate with our delivery agents before either replacing or refunding goods.
We will not keep you waiting unnecessarily as we find in most cases parcels are located after investigation and are then received quicker than sending a replacement.

Firesmiths accepts no liability for parcels lost or misplaced after delivery is confirmed.
