We’ve had to temporarily remove our DPD delivery options as they’ve advised the weather is badly disrupting their services. Royal Mail is also temporarily unable to guarantee next day delivery and due to ongoing restrictions at their depots because of COVID-19, many parcels are delayed.
If you live in one of the following postcode areas, your order from us is likely to be delayed by a few days. We understand this is inconvenient and it’s not ideal, we thank you for your patience.

Returns and Refunds
We hope you love your Dowsing & Reynolds products but we understand that there are occasions when you’ll want to return items to us.
Our straightforward returns policy gives you 14 days for a full refund and 28 days for an exchange*.
If the item you’re returning weighs less than 20kg (about the weight of a large bag of garden compost – you can only just lift it by yourself) and is smaller than 61cm x 46cm x 46cm then you can use the link below to print out a label and drop the parcel off at your local Post Office. This is a tracked service that costs £4 so please retain your tracking number in case of a query.
It is not essential to use this method, but we do recommend using a tracked service, either with the Post Office or any other provider, as proof of postage will not be accepted as proof of receipt.
If you want to return a larger item, or you’re not sure, then call or email our customer service team who are on-hand to advise.
Lines open: Monday to Thursday 9:30am-6pm | Friday 9:30am-5pm | Saturday 10am-4pm | Sunday 11am-4pm (except Bank Holidays)
Please write on the packaging that the item is a return to avoid customs charges. Failure to do so incurs customs charges that we are not liable for, as a result, we will deduct any such fees from your refund amount.
You can return an item even if you just don’t like it* however, all non-faulty items must be unused, and in exactly the same condition as you received them.
The product box(es) must also be undamaged and suitable for resale.
*Please note: any used items, special orders, bespoke items or products designed via our Customise a Light (CYO) section cannot be returned for a refund.
Packing your returns
Please reuse the original packaging when returning items to us.
We will not accept items that are not in their original condition (and product box) or have been damaged in transit due to inadequate packaging.
