Availability information for products is listed on each individual product description.

We shall be under no obligation to fulfil an order for a product that was advertised at an incorrect price. In the event that you order an item and the price published on hwl.ie is materially incorrect for any reason, we will email you to inform you that we have cancelled your order and refund you in full as soon as possible (if order placed outside normal working days / times, then your refund might not be processed until next working day.

No contract for the sale of any product will exist between you and hwl.ie until we accept your order by dispatching the product to you. When this happens we will confirm the acceptance by sending you an email. If you wish to cancel at any time prior to the goods being dispatched, just email us and we will refund you in full (see our Cancellation Policy below for more information).

You will receive two emails. The first email confirms that the order has been accepted. The second email confirms that the order has been dispatched and is also your invoice.

Cancelling an Order

If you haven’t submitted an order, you may clear the items (or change the quantity) in your shopping basket at any time by clicking the ‘minus’ button next to the product you do not wish to purchase in your shopping basket and then ‘Update Cart’, or you can remove the product from the cart by using ‘x’ icon on the left of the product in your shopping cart.

If you have placed an order but then wish to change or cancel it, please contact us as soon as you can, as orders move rapidly through to our warehouse. We will try our best to make any changes but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so as the order may already have been dispatched to you. In such cases, you may have to wait until you receive the order and then follow the normal Returns procedures. You will find more information about this in “What is your returns policy if I don’t like the goods that I have received?” section for our policy on returns.

Once we’ve heard from you that you wish to cancel an order, and the goods have NOT been dispatched, we will process a refund in full back to your credit or debit card as soon as possible and within 7 days following your notification to us.

For cancellations received after goods have been dispatched, you will have to return the goods at your own expense in order to obtain a refund. Please see ‘What is your returns policy if I don’t like the goods that I have received?” section for our policy on returns (included in Shipping and Returns section). You will be responsible for the Good(s) until they reach us. For your own protection, we suggest you use a secure delivery method which requires a signature upon delivery such as Registered Post (Recorded Delivery).

Ordering - and Product is out of stock

Payment is taken for your order when you place the order. If an item ordered subsequently is out of stock and we cannot ship, we always contact the customer by email. We include any information we have regarding when this item will be back in stock and always offer the customer the option of a cancellation / refund with a guarantee to email the customer when the product is back in stock, or the option to hold the order and ship when back in stock. Unless we know for certain that the order can be fulfilled within 2 weeks of order being placed we prefer to cancel and refund the order as we do not like retaining customers money when we cannot ship.

  • Freight (Pallets) (trackable) – €40 plus VAT with Freight Forwarder

We make no profit from Shipping.

For very small items: Screws, O Ring Kits, Aerators & some Bushes, where we can post, we post at no additional charge to the customer. Some Bushes due to size cannot be posted. Courier costs include VAT and costs of packaging.

Current Shipping Times: Fastways / Freight Forwarder is usually 1-2 working days but please allow longer if you live in a remote location as some couriers do not cover remote areas daily. It is very important to ensure that your shipping address is correct and always to include your Eircode / Postal code. Couriers look for a mobile phone to aid delivery. Post is usually 1-2 working days but it could take longer to be delivered in N.I. At peak times of the year e.g. Christmas Period, or extreme weather, there could be delays countrywide in deliveries as volumes of goods sent by Post / Courier increase or are delayed by adverse weather conditions.
