How do you deliver?

Delivery of S.A.D. lightboxes and large tubes to the UK mainland is made by next working day courier. Your consignment does have to be signed for so someone has to be in to take delivery.
Delivery of bulbs and small tubes is by Royal Mail or My Hermes.
No deliveries can be made to P.O. Box numbers.

When will my goods be delivered?

Delivery by courier is next working day (some areas are a 2-day service) after the goods leave us, any time between 08:30 and 18:00. If you want a specific delivery date this can be arranged with the office on 0845 095 6477 or 01844 353 136. Goods by Royal Mail are usually 3-5 working days, but can take up to 10 working days.
What happens if I’m not at home?

If you are not at home the courier will leave a card with the consignment number and the local depot number for you to call to arrange a redelivery. They will automatically try to redeliver the next working day. It will then be returned to the depot to be held for up to 3 days for further instructions. After this time it will be returned to us and an additional charge will be made for redelivery. Royal Mail will normally leave a card and the goods are generally held at the local depot for collection. 
What if I want to change the delivery address after the goods have been sent out?

Once the goods have been sent out from the factory by courier the delivery address can be changed but this will incur a charge of £20.00. Goods sent out by Royal Mail cannot have a delivery address changed.

I’m never at home can it be sent to a different address?

We can deliver to another address. This can be work, a neighbour or the consignment can be ‘left safe’ in a greenhouse, shed or garage. This would be at your own risk. These instructions can be added to the consignment before it is sent out to help a speedy delivery. If the delivery has already been sent out it may incur extra costs.
Do you deliver overseas?

Yes that is not a problem. The charges for Europe are on the website but if the country that you wish to have the consignment sent to is not on the website then either email customerservice@sad.uk.com or call on +44 (0) 1844 353 136. BFPO numbers go through the normal postal service.


Prices are correct at time of publishing, and include VAT where applicable.
The total price payable will be stipulated at the time of ordering. We will be entitled to make adjustments to the price if there is a change in vat or duties are payable or if we make an error or omission in the price quoted. If there is a change to the prices quoted from when you placed your order we will inform you and give you the opportunity to cancel

How can I recycle my old electrical items in the UK?

On 1st July 2007, the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations were implemented in the UK in order to reduce the quantity of electronic waste being sent to landfill and thereby protecting our environment. Full Spectrum Lighting has joined the Distributor Take-Back Scheme (DTS) - which will allow you to deposit your old electrical and electronic items at UK recycling sites, free of charge.

To find your nearest recycling site for waste electrical and electronic items, visit www.recycle-more.co.uk and simply type your postcode into the recycling bank locator. You'll find advice and tips on other aspects of recycling too.

How will I know if the products I buy can be recycled?

All electrical and electronic products and/or packaging now carry a "crossed out wheelie bin" logo to help you identify products that are recyclable. All our Lightboxes manufactured from 1st July 2007 carry this mark.
