Prices

All prices are shown exclusive of VAT, which will be added to your order at the prevailing rate.

Delivery & Collections
Delivery & collection is free of charge on all order over £500 (before VAT) and is charged on all orders below £500. Where items are not ready for collection at the agreed time, a return collection charge will be made.

Delivery/collection rates represent a contribution to the overall transportation costs of orders and multiple orders to the same address will, therefore, incur multiple delivery/collection charges.

Orders will be delivered from our central London kitchens as close to your preferred delivery slot as possible. Please bare in mind that London traffic can be an unpredictable beast – we will keep you updated of any delays to your delivery and we cannot guarantee specific delivery times within the slot booked.

Equipment

Customers are responsible for the safe return of all crockery and equipment on loan to them. It is the responsibility of the customer to inspect all equipment and crockery on delivery. Any damaged equipment or crockery must be reported to the delivery person on receipt of your order. Any breakages or missing items, not reported on delivery, will be charged to the customer at the full replacement value.

Staff Feeding catering orders must be cancelled by 5pm, 5 working days before the delivery date. After that time, we reserve the right to charge the customer all or part of the order total.
Hospitality & Meeting Room Catering orders must be cancelled before 2.30pm, 2 working days before the delivery day. After that time, we reserve the right to charge the customer all or part of the order total.

Payment & Invoices

Orders can be paid for by debit or credit card at the time of placing the order. The card charge will be processed on the scheduled despatch day of your order to allow for any changes to be made. Invoices will be issued on the day of your order and can be downloaded by signing-in to your account at www.grazingfood.com.
