Having built bikes delivered

Certain bikes can be delivered built; these will be delivered within five days.

Where do you deliver to?

We can deliver your order to addresses in the UK, but unfortunately we're unable to deliver to non-UK destinations (such as the Republic of Ireland, Channel Islands, BFPO addresses and PO boxes) at this time.

Deliveries to non-mainland UK addresses and remote locations (such as the Scottish Isles, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands) may take a bit longer to reach you.

What if I'm ordering more than one item for delivery?

If all the items in your order have been sold and sent by Halfords there will only be one delivery charge. If you're ordering an item from more than one Approved Partner (or items from Halfords together with items from an Approved Partner) there will be a separate delivery charge for each part of your order.

General Delivery Information

We'll do everything we can to meet the delivery times above, but sometimes they may be affected by factors outside of our control and can't be guaranteed. We'll let you know if we become aware of an unexpected delay.

For further details, please see our full Terms & Conditions.

Returns Policy

Halfords Returns Policy

Unwanted goods

If you change your mind and decide you no longer want an item that we've delivered, we're happy to offer you an exchange. You'll need to return your item unused and in their original packaging along with the original packing note and invoice (as proof of purchase).

You can return an item for free at any of our stores, but if you choose to return by post you'll need to cover the cost of postage. However, if the item you're returning is faulty we'll refund the postage once we've received the item and checked the fault.

We can only exchange sat navs, DVDs, memory cards, and software if they're faulty or are returned unused with their original seals and wrapping intact. Personalised products and made-to-order products can only be returned if they're faulty.

Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds on car seats.

Bought an item from a Marketplace seller?

If the item you've bought from has a logo stating 'Sold and sent by' by someone other than Halfords, then the guidelines for returning an item are slightly different. Click here to see how to return an item you've bought from a Marketplace seller.

Faulty goods

Consumer protection legislation says that items must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. If you buy a product online and it's found to be faulty within 30 days, you're entitled to ask for a full refund of the faulty product. If a fault occurs after the initial 30 days, we're entitled to repair and/or replace that item. If it can't be repaired or replaced, then you may be entitled to a refund. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

Ways to return your items

If you need to return an item we'll happily offer a refund as long as this is within 28 days of delivery, in its original packaging and you have proof of purchase.

There are three easy ways to return your item(s):

  • in-store
  • by post
  • by courier.

For exchanges or to return an item collected in store, please visit one of our stores.


  • You can return any item for free at any of our stores.
  • Simply fill in the returns form that came with your order.
  • Take this along with your proof of purchase to the store (if your items were delivered you'll have received a proof of purchase email).
  • The store will happily refund your payment onto the card you paid with or offer an exchange.
  • It's at the store managers' discretion whether to accept a return if you don't have proof of purchase.

Marketplace Returns & Delivery

Delivery from Approved Partners

When you order an item from a Halfords Approved Partner, the delivery cost will vary depending on which option you choose and which Approved Partner you're buying from. Different Approved Partners offer different delivery options (such as next working day delivery). You'll be able to see all of the available delivery options during checkout.

Order tracking may be available for orders from some Approved Partners. If so, you'll receive tracking details when you receive your order dispatch email. You can find out if your chosen Approved Partner offers tracking by looking at their Terms & Conditions.

If you order multiple items from the same Approved Partner at the same time, you'll only need to pay for postage once. However, if you're ordering multiple items from different Approved Partners, you'll need to pay separate postage costs for each Approved Partner.

Where is my order from an Approved Partner?

Once you've placed an order with an Approved Partner you'll be sent confirmation within three working days. If you choose Next Day delivery, order before 3pm and the items will be dispatched the same day, arriving the next working day.

If you think your order's running late, get in touch with the Approved Partner to make sure it's been dispatched. If you have a Halfords account, you can get in touch with them by visiting the My Account page, and then your orders page. Choose the relevant order and select Contact Seller.

If you don't have a Halfords account, simply go to the Track My Order page and enter your order number and email address, and select Contact Seller.

Once you've sent your message to an Approved Partner, they'll need to respond to you within three working days. If they haven't acknowledged your email within three days, please contact Halfords Customer Services. You'll need to send us the order number and the dates on which you contacted the seller and we'll look into this for you.

Please don't contact Customer Services without first trying to contact the Approved Partner.

Halfords Marketplace Returns

How do I return something I've bought from an Approved Partner?

Each Approved Partner has their own Terms & Conditions when it comes to returning and refunding items. To find out what these are, find the relevant company and click on 'More Info' on our our Partners' Directory.

Please note that items bought from an Approved Partner can't be returned to a Halfords store.

Can I return an item if I bought it from an Approved Partner more than 28 days ago?

Whilst Halfords offers a 28 day returns policy on products in their original packaging (alongside proof of purchase), our Approved Partners will have their own returns and refund policies.

Our Approved Partners are required to meet trading standards, but are not required to follow the Halfords 28 day returns policy. Please take a look at the Partners' Directory to find the Approved Partner's shop page and read their full Terms & Conditions.
