How will my order be packed?
When you buy fresh, quality, local meat from Higginsons, it is packed using state-of-the-art special cooling packaging to ensure it arrives in perfect order.Your order will be freshly prepared, vacuum-packed or tray wrapped, and placed into a strong, re-useable box which is lined with speciallly insultating and protective liners and dry ice packs, which prevent warming and protects your goods from knocks or bumps during transit.

What if I am not at home for delivery?
Your order will require a signature when it arrives at the delivery address. If you cannot be certain that the parcel will be signed for at home, we recommend that you specify alternative delivery instructions in the 'Special Instructions' box on Step 2, for example the name and address of your place of work, or the name and address of a neighbour. If such information is provided, the courier will be informed accordingly.

For local deliveries within the LA postcode area, we are able to offer a delivery charge of £5.00.
You can also choose to collect any size of order yourself from our shop in Grange-Over-Sands, without any packing or delivery charge.
What if the Goods do not arrive when I expect them?
We hope this will never be the case, however in the event of your order failing to arrive when expected, please contact us by telephone or email within 24 hours of the expected delivery quoting your order reference number. We will investigate the situation immediately and advise you as soon as possible. Should the order not be delivered within one working day of the date given in the order confirmation, you will be entitled to a full refund.
Due to the seasonal nature of some of our produce and limited supply, it is possible that from time to time we may be unable to fulfill some orders. We will advise you as soon as possible if this is the case, and offer alternative produce or cancellation at your discretion. In the event of us having to cancel an order, you will recieve a full refund. If your order is for a large selection of items, we reserve the right to substitute meat of equal or superior quality and value and of the same type.
Acceptable Weight Variation
When you place an order with us, it will be for a nominal weight of produce, at a specified price, and we will collect your payment when placing the order. Because orders are prepared individually, it can be expected that there may be some small variation in weights above or below the weight you chose, and it is impractical for us to process small refunds or to request additional payments. We will ensure that this variation never exceeds more or less than 10% of any item specified. Items delivered within this 10% variation will be deemed as a complete and correct order.
If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the quality of the produce received, you should contact us within 24 hours of receipt. All complaints will be dealt with personally by our Managing Director Stuart Higginson. Your statutory rights are not affected.
