Important order information United Kingdom
Please read the following information about order processing, deliveries and returns to the United Kingdom.
You can now place orders for all available products on the UK website. If you have a question about an outstanding order please email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org
We have now resumed shipping parcels for Safescan products from our Central Warehouse in the Netherlands into the United Kingdom. As a priority, we are focused on clearing the backlog of orders that has build up during January as a result of the customs and tax changes caused by the departure of the UK from the EU. As soon as parcels are despatched, our Central Orderdesk will notify you of the Tracking ID. Once despatched parcels are generally being received within 3-5 business days.
Please note that we have also resumed shipments to Northern Ireland and currently orders to Northern Ireland are seeing a 6 business days transit time once despatched.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our customers, for your patience and support during this challenging time for us all.
The changing regulatory framework between the UK and EU insofar as it applies to Returns is not yet clear. We are working rapidly with our financial and customs advisors to ensure that handling of your return is as rapid and seamless as possible whilst also conforming to the new rules. While this situation remains unclear, if you are having a problem with your Safescan device, please contact email@example.com and we will do everything we can to help you resolve your issue without the need to return it to the Netherlands.
If you notify us that you require a return based on our 14 day money-back guarantee, and you meet the requirements outlined in our Terms & Conditions, then please rest assured that, even if there is a shipping delay, this will not affect your 14 day guarantee.
We offer free shipping for all orders with a value of £50 or more. For orders below £50 standard shipping rates apply. We work hard to keep our shipping rates as low as possible, without surcharges for delivery to remote areas. In some countries, shipping and returning of your order is free of charge. Please see the table of shipping rates ‣ for detailed information. To ensure the fast, accurate delivery of your order, we use the reliable services of UPS.
After you place the desired items in your shopping cart, select your preferred delivery method. The cart will calculate and display your shipping costs so you can review them before you complete your order. These costs are also displayed in the confirmation email we send you after you place an order, and in your online order status.
If you select the Cash on Delivery payment method, we will add a modest surcharge to your order to cover the carrier’s additional fees. This surcharge, which is visible in your shopping cart once you select your payment method, is calculated and displayed separately and is not part of your shipping costs.
If we receive payment for your order before 16:00 CET, we will process it that same day. Provided all items are in stock, you will receive it in 1–3 workdays. Orders placed on weekends and public holidays will be processed the next working day. During busier periods it is possible that your order cannot be processed the same day. Your order will be processed and shipped as soon as possible.
As soon as our warehouse has shipped your order, we will send you a confirmation email including a unique UPS parcel tracking number. To trace your package’s status in real time, visit www.ups.com and enter your tracking number on the left side of the page. UPS delivers between 8:00 and 18:00 Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.
The average delivery time is 1–3 workdays, depending on the country to which the order is shipped. Please see our table of delivery times ‣ for detailed information.

14 day money-back guarantee
When you shop on Safescan.com, you enjoy a 14-day money-back guarantee on all items (excluding software packages). During this time, you can return an item purchased from our online store for a full refund, without stating a reason. Please note that certain limitations apply to this guarantee; we encourage you to familiarise yourself with these requirements prior to delivery:
- You must have created a Safescan account.
- The item must be unused.
- There must be no visible damage or signs of use.
- The product and all accessories, manuals and packaging must be returned in their original state.
- The guarantee does not apply to software packages.
We may reduce or decline your refund if the item has been used or damaged or is incomplete.
In practical terms, this means you may inspect an item to determine its suitability, but you may not use it; any action that renders the item “used” voids your right to the 14-day money-back guarantee.
We will refund a reduced amount if:
- the product has been damaged, either by you or on its journey back to us
- any components (manuals, cables, adapters, and so on) are not returned
Once we receive your return, we will refund your purchase amount within 30 days (subject to the limitations above). If you paid with a credit card, the refund will be credited to your card. If you choose to have UPS pick up your return shipment, please note that the cost will be deducted from your total refund.
Defective on Arrival Policy
We offer a 7-day DOA (Defective on Arrival) policy. If a product you’ve purchased becomes defective within 7 days of receipt, we will send you a new one, completely free of charge. Simply notify us within the 7-day period, and after approval, submit a return request through your Safescan account at Safescan.com. We will pick up the defective product and deliver a new one at no cost to you.
Please note that the defective goods must be returned in their original packaging. Items returned without their original packaging cannot be accepted for DOA; they will be sent for repair under warranty instead.
After the 7-day period, the standard warranty terms apply.
The return request process
1. Go to www.safescan.com and log in to your Safescan account (or create one, if you don’t already have one). 2. If you purchased your item at Safescan.com, go to your order history and click on the “return request” option. Complete the form to submit your request. 3. If you purchased your Safescan product from one of our authorised dealers, go to “My returns” and fill in the form to submit your request. (You will need your purchase invoice or receipt for this.) 4. We will contact you by email as quickly as we can with further instructions on how to return your product. These instructions will include your return label and unique RMA return number. Please wait for these instructions before returning your product to us; without both the return label and RMA number, we cannot accept your return.
Return Shipping costs
If you are returning an item under our Defective on Arrival policy, we will arrange to pick it up and pay the costs. If you’re returning an item for any other reason, such as under the 14-day money-back guarantee or for repair, please note that you are responsible for paying the costs of return shipment.
To ease the returns process, we offer a pickup service at greatly reduced rates. If you would like to use this service, please select it when you submit your return request through your Safescan account at Safescan.com. You will receive clear instructions on payment (if applicable) and pickup.
