We offer the option to ship goods to us, but please be aware that we cannot deal with the administration of this free of charge. We spent a considerable time in 2016 moving, storing and re-distributing goods and apart from the hours of work this involves, we also need to hire storage space and help/transport to deliver items. A dedicated 2-person team will administer the inventory and allocate shipments on set-up day. You all run a business, so we know you understand this.
*the fee is charged per item, regardless of weight!
If you would like to discuss your shipping requirements with us, please get in touch with us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We will be able to provide a status updates at the end of each business day about received items, if they are sent to us directly. For goods sent to the Corn Exchange we rely on availability of their staff to check and provide accurate information.
We highly recommend that you use traceable shipping method though to be able to check up on your shipments yourself. Please note we cannot chase couriers.
Damage, theft and missing packages
Items send to us directly or the Corn Exchange will be stored in a dry, locked and regularly checked storage facility and only handled by trusted parties. All reasonable precautions are taken to keep goods safe, but Edinburgh Yarn Company Ltd or Marco Leisure Ltd accept no responsibility for any damage, theft or missing items. You send your goods entirely at your own risk.
Please use sturdy card board boxes for your goods. Any goods inside the box should be protected by plastic wrapping in case of damage to the outer packaging.
All shipments must clearly state the exhibitors business name ON ALL SIDES for easy allocation of the goods on set-up day.
Distribution of goods during set up
We will dedicate a team to the task of distribution and endeavour to have all goods allocated to your exhibition stand before set-up, but depending on the amount of shipments we have to deal with, you may have to retrieve your goods from the storage area of the Corn Exchange yourself. We will update you on the situation in the run-up to the event. Please note that the venue have a limited amount of trolleys and we cannot guarantee availability.
Goods will only be released if shipping registration charges have been paid in full.
