Delivery Status Information

For customers who have already placed an order with us, please be aware that the delivery may take longer than originally advertised due to seasonal demand.  Orders are taking up to 10 working days to fulfil at present.  Please accept our apologies if this is the case, but we thank you for your patience.

New Orders – Our website continues to operate for all customers on a delivery basis.  However, we cannot guarantee a specific delivery time at the time of placing your order.



Please note that we only ship to UK mainland addresses.

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to ship to Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Isles of Scilly, some of the Scottish Islands and the Isle of Man, due to additional fuel surcharges for deliveries to these locations.

Dispatch estimates given in working days can be found on each product page. Orders placed after 4pm on Fridays will not be processed until the next working day (usually the Monday, unless there is a bank holiday).

Once your order has been dispatched we will send you an email containing tracking information which can be used to check the status of your delivery.

Orders for petrol lawnmowers will undergo a pre-delivery inspection to ensure that they are in full working order before shipping. This means that it will be a little bit longer before these products are dispatched but we’ve found this saves a lot of time and eliminates potential running issues. The product will then be drained and returned to the original box / packaging.


We charge a flat rate of £15 for orders of £75 or more which are being sent to UK mainland addresses (English and Welsh mainland addresses and most Scottish addresses). For deliveries to the Scottish Highlands we charge £45. For orders under £75 the delivery charge is reduced to £7.95 to all mainland UK addresses.

Garden tractors and ride-on lawnmowers can only be delivered to addresses within a 50-mile radius of our Ulting Head Office (CM9 6QH). We are also happy to arrange demonstrations if you are within our area. As these machines are very large, we deliver them in our own vehicles, and are unable to transport them further than this, although you are welcome to visit us to make the collection in person.

All deliveries are sent out Monday to Friday and couriers used will depend on package size. Currently we’re using DPD Local, TNT , APC and pallet companies. Small packages such as spare parts will be sent out via Royal mail or courier dependant on size and weight of the items..

Packaging Disclaimer: Some items, such as strimmer’s arrive to us from the supplier in boxes of two. Therefore, on arrival we are required to split the two items into two individual boxes. Due to this, when purchasing one of these items, you may receive one that has been packaged up in a plain brown box, these items have simply been repackaged and are NOT secondhand items.

Please note we are closed bank holidays and during the period from Christmas Eve until the New Year. Orders will be processed but not dispatched during this time.

Returns & Right To Cancel

You have the right to cancel from the moment your order has been placed until 14 days from the date you have received your goods.

The goods should be returned to us in a re-saleable & unused condition with all parts and paperwork, and in the original packaging.  If you’re exchanging your goods it is helpful if you include details of the item you would like. The return cost is the responsibility of the customer (unless return is due to our error).

In the instance that goods are delivered in error, the items delivered remain the customers responsibility and must be kept in a safe location until collection is agreed between both parties. Failure to do so may result in Lawnmowers Direct recuperating the costs of mishandled goods.

If you have changed your mind and would like to cancel, simply send us an email to [email protected] with the subject line ‘Order Cancellation’. Please include your name, address and order number so we can find and process your cancellation quickly. If your order hasn’t been despatched you will be notified and receive your refund within 14 days (although this is usually much quicker). If your order has already been dispatched and/or delivered there will be a shipping charge for its return to us, we will discuss the cost with you and this will be deducted from your refund.

For goods which arrive faulty, or which later develop a fault, you have 30 days to let us know so we can rectify the situation. See below for full details.

Faulty Goods

Before any petrol machine leaves our warehouse we remove it from the box and get it up and running to make sure everything’s working. This significantly reduces the chance that anything will arrive with you faulty.

We ask that, if possible, you check your goods when you receive them from the courier and mark on the delivery note if there is any damage. If you don’t have time to check, write ‘order not checked’. Let us know if your goods have been damaged in transit as soon as possible (within 7 days of receipt) either by calling 01245 383 565 or emailing [email protected].

If you discover a fault:

In the unlikely instance that your order arrives faulty, email us as soon as possible at [email protected]. We will arrange for your goods to be collected, and then we will replace, exchange or refund the product depending on your wishes. You have the right to a full refund on faulty goods which we have been made aware of within 30 days of delivery.

If you have had your goods for between 30 days and six months when a fault develops, we will repair where possible or replace the goods (we may need the goods back for an initial assessment to make check that the fault hasn’t been caused by operator error). If we are unable to repair, we will offer you an option to replace where possible, or you will be entitled to a refund. You can also request that we make further attempts at repairing the goods.

ALL goods returned as faulty will undergo an inspection by our highly trained technicians to ensure the fault is due to a manufacture error and not caused by operator error. If the goods are found to be fully working, damaged or faulty due to operator error we will be in touch as soon as possible to discuss the report with you.

All products purchased from Lawnmowers Direct come with a full manufacturer’s warranty, the length of which will be stated in the product description on our website. Specific manufacturer’s requirements highlighting exclusions to warranty coverage will be stated within the owner’s handbook.

At Lawnmowers Direct we register all Hayter, Honda, Husqvarna, Atco and Toro product sales directly with the manufacturers for warranty purposes. Products from alternative manufacturers should be registered directly with the manufacturer by the customer to ensure that any extended warranty advantages are claimed.

Regardless of the length of your warranty, it is imperative that you adhere to the following:

  • It is your responsibility to make sure that your garden machinery gets the maintenance it requires to keep it in peak condition. This includes, as a minimum, proof of annual servicing by an experienced horticultural servicing specialist, for the length of the warranty period.
  • Regular cleaning of machinery is essential to keep it in good working order. Neglect or failure to comply with this requirement could lead to the premature wear-and-tear of important components. You could be risking your warranty if you don’t carry out basic monthly maintenance.
  • Do not let minor problems manifest into major faults. As soon as you suspect your purchase is not functioning as it should be, report this malfunction to the most appropriate agent to hand (see below). Failure to address minor faults that ultimately cause your machinery to cease working properly could invalidate your warranty.

You can access the petrol owners agreement here :

We have some excellent advice available regarding how best to look after your new investment. General lawnmower care tips can be found here and winter storage advice can be found here.

If you feel that you have a valid warranty claim or experience any difficulty operating your new purchase, we strongly advise that you make contact with us at the earliest opportunity. We will endeavour to remedy your problem in the most appropriate way possible.

The majority of the manufacturers we deal with have a network of service dealers covering the UK and if you experience a problem with your machine we will attempt to put you in touch with your nearest authorised service dealer. If this is not possible or cannot be arranged in a timely fashion then we will collect the machine from you and return it here to our workshop where it will be repaired and then returned to you in working order.

Collection of the faulty goods will be from your original delivery address. We will instruct our chosen carrier to collect the item from you on a specified day. For this method to work properly, the machine, if fitted with a petrol engine, will need to be drained of engine oil and petrol and packaged in a way as to protect it from the rigours of the courier network. We strongly advise that you fold down and retain the original packaging your purchase was supplied to you in.

Please ensure you keep your original proof of purchase or a copy of it in a safe place. It might be necessary to produce this in the case of any claim against warranty.

Items returned to Lawnmowers Direct for repair will be worked on by industry trained and qualified members of staff. If we find that a piece of machinery returned to us is faulty due to user error or inappropriate treatment and does not qualify as a claim against warranty, we will contact you to discuss the best way forward and any costs you are responsible for.

The contact phone number for our customer care department is 01245 383 565 and the email address is [email protected].
