Frequently Asked Questions | Equine Essentials Direct
 

FAQs

Q. When will my order be delivered?

A. We aim to ensure that all UK mainland orders which are placed on a Standard Delivery service are delivered 3-5 working after dispatch from us – although it is often much quicker. If you are in the UK and have used our Next Day Delivery service, (for orders received before 1pm) these orders will be received on the next working day.

 

Q. What is the Purple X Promotion

A. As part of our continued approach to bring all of our customers the best possible price we have introduced the Purple X promotion. Which means certain products, in-store, will be marked with a purple x - when you see the purple x this is an indicator that you can purchase your product online cheaper. You will still be able to collect the product in-store if you are planning a trip to see us - you just need to buy online and choose click and collect at checkout, allow 2 - 5 working days after purchase for the product to be delivered into the store - this is not an instant service - we will email you when it's available for collection. 

Purple X products can be offered online cheaper as it allows our staff to be more available to help support our customers in store at Equine Essentials Direct, Denham, and our warehouse staff to deal with the orders of Purple X products at a more comfortable pace.

 

Q. How can I track my order?

A.  Orders can be easily tracked by logging in to your account on our website, select My Orders and click on Track My Order at the side of the order you wish to track. This will then give you the status of your order.

A. Yes. If it is easier for you we offer a service where we will arrange collection from you at a cost of £6.95 per parcel.
