FAQS

DELIVERY

Can I track/check the status of my order?
Yes, once your order has been dispatched you will receive an email with your tracking number from either DPD or Royal Mail.

Can I change my shipping address?
Absolutely, if you need to change this please email hello@harperandlewis.com ASAP and mark the subject as ‘URGENT: ADDRESS CHANGE’ where our customer service team will process this. We always aim to get this sorted for you, however if this item has already been dispatched we unfortunately will not be able to change this and the item will go to the original address provided. 

Where is my order?
UK Royal Mail Tracked 48 Service - Once your order has been dispatched delivery should take 2-3 working days. DPD Next Working Day - For orders placed Monday - Thursday before 3pm, your parcel will be delivered next day. DPD Europe & Royal Mail International - Please check our shipping section for a detailed break down on delivery services.  Of course there can be times where unavoidable delays occur especially during busy periods, please be assured that we do everything we can to ensure our customers get their parcels ASAP. 

Why is DPD Cut off 3pm?
For the DPD Next Working Day Service, your orders are collected from our warehouse at 4pm. The 3pm cut off allows us time to ensure all orders are processed correctly and therefore arrive to you the next day. 

Do I have to pay customs fees for EU orders?
For all EU orders under the value of €150, customs duty and customs fees are covered in the delivery cost. For all EU orders over the value of €150, the individual country customs duties / fees apply which you will be responsible for. VAT for all EU orders is already included in the price of the product.

Why is delivery to Europe more expensive?
To ensure your parcel gets to you safely, we use a fully tracked and signed for service where you will be notified on the status of your parcel after it leaves our warehouse. Due to Brexit, the price of this service has been affected as there is now the addition of customs clearance within EU countries. 

I can‘t find my parcel?
If it says that your parcel has been delivered please check all possible safe places: post rooms, neighbours, house mates. If you still can’t find your parcel please email hello@harperandlewis.com where we can further investigate this.

Tell me about brand values - sustainability & ethics?
As a brand we started our journey selling Vintage clothing so sustainability is of great importance to us. As we have grown and moved on to producing our own label clothing we have tried to adopt the values learnt and apply them to areas of the business where possible. To us at Harper & Lewis, sustainability means several different things, it means that our factories are third party certified, that they are free from hazardous chemicals and that all our workers are given a fair wage and safe working environment. We currently manufacture our clothing in
both the UK and Turkey. All our off shore factories follow the BSCI Accreditation scheme which ensures that the supply chain meets all requirements for good working conditions. Many of these factories also hold a Sedex certification which further ensures that best practise is carried out. Sedex are dedicated to driving improvements in ethical and responsible business practises for global supply chains.

Moving forward we believe that there are improvements that both ourselves and our customers can make. We believe that the smallest of changes can have a big impact and this is why we send all our parcels out in biodegradable mailing bags. At present our design team are exploring the possibility of sustainably sourced fabrics and trims to ensure that in the future we as a brand are continuing to play our part in a more sustainable world. So what can you do to help? To help cut down the amount of garments that end up in landfill we ask our customers to
recycle their garments once they are finished with them. No matter what the condition, they can be of use. Wearable garments can be given to charity shops where they will go to their next home. With garments that are no longer suitable for re-wear the fabric can still be sent as rags where it can be converted into recycled fibres.
