Shipping Policy

Boats and other large deliveries will be shipped from Vajda or Double Dutch to our company address in London and can be picked up from Lee Valley Whitewater Course. These delivery charges to the UK are included in the price of boats/paddles. Delivery of such items to other areas must be discussed with the company directly. We can post smaller items to addresses in the UK, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. A surplus shipping cost for postage within the UK may be applied.

In the event of any goods delivered by us being damaged in transit, deficient of items shown on the delivery note or failing to match the items ordered by you, then such details must be notified by you to us within seven working days of receipt. If we receive no such notification, the customer will be deemed to have accepted the items as satisfactory. We cannot be held liable for any consequential loss caused by late delivery or failure to deliver by the company’s appointed carrier. Liability in such cases is limited to the value of those items that were not received by the customer.

Delivery times of boats depend on a variety of factors including time of order placement, how complicated the design is and how busy the Vajda factory is. We endeavour to have boats delivered to the UK within 6-12 weeks of order placement.
