If an item is not in stock, we will hold the back order and dispatch the goods as soon as they arrive. In the case of unreasonable wait times, a B&T Music representative will contact you.

Shipping And Handling

Most orders are shipped out on the same or following working day. When your order is shipped, we will send you a confirmation email. Orders dispatched via courier can request a tracking number after shipping. Please understand we are not able to contractually agree delivery timescales unless by prior arrangement.

All deliveries must be signed for, and cannot be left in a location without signature. It is at our chosen courier's discretion as to whether they will leave your goods with a neighbour or not.

Shipping costs are calculated on the weight and size of your order. For small/low value orders, Royal Mail Recorded is a cost effective shipping method which typically takes 1-3 working days to arrive. UK Mail is our courier of choice for higher value orders and large items. The cost of your order including delivery will be shown before you are directed to the payment page. To get a delivery quote, please add items to your basket and then choose your shipping destination on the Checkout screen to see delivery options available for your order. 

We only ship to UK addresses. Shipping large goods to the Scottish Highlands and Outlying British Islands costs considerable more which is why our shipping costs rise if delivery is requested to that area.

B&T Music reserves the right to charge for shipping on orders over £100, under circumstances decided by B&T Music. As an example - most drum kits don't qualify for free shipping.

Delivery Schedule

Royal Mail packages typically take 1-3 working days to arrive. Courier delivery times vary but goods typically take 1-3 working days to arrive.

Inform us within two working days if the goods are lost or damaged in transit so that we can make a prompt claim against the delivery company and correct the problem. Please also quote your order number in all correspondence.

You agree that proof of delivery supplied by our delivery company is sufficient evidence to establish that goods have been received.

If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.

Alternatively email us (sales@bandtmusic.co.uk) and we will inform you of when the item can be supplied. If you happen to order an item that is incorrectly marked as in stock, you will be contacted and offered alternatives including a full refund.

Tax Charges

For orders made from the UK, 20% VAT is added. All orders for VAT exempt items are VAT free.

Credit Card Security
