Where do you deliver to?

We can deliver your order to your chosen address in the UK. Unfortunately we're not able to deliver to non-UK destinations (such as the Republic of Ireland, Channel Islands, BFPO address and PO boxes) at this time.

Deliveries to non-mainland UK address and remote locations (such as the Scottish Isles, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands) may be subject to additional delivery charges and might 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 & sent by Halfords then 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) then there will be a separate delivery charge for each part of your order.

Want to return an item? Please click on the 'Returns' tab at the top of this page for our Returns info.

Returns Policy

Halfords Returns Policy

Any item must be returned unused in their original packaging along with the original packing note and copy invoice (as proof of purchase). If you decide to return an item you can do so for free at any of our stores nationwide. If you choose to return an item by post you will need to cover the cost of postage, however if you are returning a faulty item your postage cost will be refunded once we have received back and checked the fault.

Bought an item from a Marketplace seller?

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 shopping with. Different Approved Partners will offer different delivery options (such as next working day delivery). All of the available delivery prices and options from the Approved Partner will be shown during checkout.

Order tracking may be available for orders from some Approved Partners. If the Approved Partner is able to provide you with order tracking details, then you'll receive them at the same time you receive your order despatch confirmation email. Take a look at the Approved Partner's Terms & Conditions to check if they offer order tracking.

If you order multiple items from the same Approved Partner at once then you'll only need to pay the postage cost once. Ordering multiple items from different Approved Partners? Then 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 3 working days. If Next Day delivery is available, then the items will be dispatched on the same day you order them as long as the order is placed before 3pm. The items will then arrive on the next working day.

Think your order might be late? Please get in touch with the Approved Partner to confirm your order has been dispatched. If you have an account on the Halfords website and want to get in touch with the Approved Partner, then go to the My Account page and then your orders page. Choose the order you'd like to contact the seller about, and select Contact Seller. Choose the reason for contacting the seller, enter your message then send it.

Don't have a Halfords account? Go to the Track My Order page and enter your order number and email address. Then select Contact Seller, choose the reason for contacting the seller, and enter your message before sending.

Once you've sent an email to an Approved Partner, they'll need to respond to you within 3 working days. If they haven't acknowledged your email within 3 days then please contact Halfords Customer Services. You'll need to send us the order number and the dates on which you contacted the seller so that we can look into this for you.

If you contact Halfords Customer Services to enquire about where your order from an Approved Partner is then you'll be asked to contact the Approved Partner as the first step.

Halfords Marketplace Returns

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

While Halfords offers a 28 day returns policy on products in their original packaging (with 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.
