Frequently Asked Questions

Delivery and Shipping FAQ

How long does it take for delivery of ‘in stock’ products?

In stock products generally take up to 2 working days for Ireland, 3 working days for the UK, 5 working days for EU countries, 5 working days for USA customers, 7 to 10 working days for non-EU and up to 10-14 working days for the Rest of World.

When are ‘in stock’ products shipped?

Usually the next working day.

How long does it take for delivery of ‘not in stock’ or pre-order products?

Shipping for ‘not in stock’ or ‘pre-order’ products is stated approximately on the product description on our website. These products will be available to order on a ‘Pre-order’ basis, meaning the order will get shipped around the time stated on the availability section of the website.

What if the item says “not in stock” or pre-order, can this be ordered?

Generally if an item does not have the option of being ordered from the website and the ‘add to cart’ button is not visible then the item is likely to be a finished line and cannot be ordered or shipped.

I wasn’t home to accept the courier delivery, what can I do now?

We advise keeping a close eye on your delivery by tracking its whereabouts on the courier’s website. If a delivery was attempted and nobody was home we advise contacting the courier by telephone and arrange a time for delivery or arrange to collect at the local post service depot. Items which come back to us cannot be reshipped unless a shipping charge is paid. We can only re-ship an item which comes back to us marked as “Return to Sender”

What is the cost of shipping to my country?

The quickest way to see the cost of shipping to your destination is to add the item to your shopping cart, then proceed to the 1st part of the checkout. To get the exact cost of shipping just enter the country and postcode of your destination and click “get quote”, the shipping cost will show up thereafter. This takes about 1 to 2 minutes to see the cost.

 

Product FAQ

Can spare parts be ordered from Uberchild?

Please email us with the part required and we can do up a price for same. All current line products spare parts can be ordered. End of line or finished products will have limited parts available until fully sold.

Can a buggy board be bought for our travel systems?

As we do not have any say over third party products we do not know if buggy boards will fit. Generally speaking ‘universal’ buggy boards should fit but we cannot be held accountable for products that do not fit and warrantee is void if such a product damages the Uberchild travel system.

Can we have instruction manuals for a product if we lose our originals?

Yes we have soft copies of our manuals and can email them. We will require an order no before we can issue the instructions.

Can our car seats be used in any other country?

All of our car seats comply with EU law ECE R44/04. Please note the required certification in your own country BEFORE ordering. Items purchased in a territory with different standards cannot be returned for this reason and we accept absolutely no liability for any circumstances which may arise for purchasing an item without the correct standards for your territory. Purchases made to territories with different standards will be deemed as “sample” use. See more information on our ‘Privacy Policy’, ‘Customer Rights’, ‘Refunds Policy’ and ‘Terms and Conditions’ sections of our website before making such purchase.

We do also offer the option of using adapters on our travel systems which would allow you to purchase car seats in your territory. Maxi Cosi is a brand that’s used worldwide and we do offer adapters for same. Contact us for more information.

Are the harnesses we sell 3 or 5 point safety harnesses?

We offer both options and will be described as such on the product details page of the item in question. If in doubt please contact us on the “Contact us” page with your queries.

Do we offer any other products not currently on the website?

No. We keep our website updated regularly to ensure it is as up to date as possible. The website can be used as a reference point for all stock availability, new products etc.

Return FAQ

I received a damaged parcel, what do I do?

If you receive an order in the post please check it fully to see if there is any damage to the box(es). If there is significant damage and you think the product may be damaged then do not sign for it. The courier will then send it back to us as ‘customer refused due to damage’. If this happens we will ship you a new product when we receive this back.

I think my product is faulty, what do I do?

If you believe you received an item that’s faulty please outline as much information as possible by emailing Uberchild, photos and a full description of the fault can speed up any resolutions. We will then liaise with you to see what the correct course of action will be. If is deemed to be a fault a new part will be shipped to you. If it’s not covered under warranty then spare parts can be purchased from Uberchild directly if the part is available.

I just don’t like it, can I just send it back?

Yes. We exceed EU law and offer our customers a full 30 days to decide whether you like or don’t like your purchase. It must be in re-sellable condition and NOT used in order to send it back for full reimbursement. Items that have been used will not qualify for reimbursement.

Its expensive to ship it back, is there another alternative?

We have an agreement with couriers in Ireland and the UK that we can collect an order for a reduced cost. The current price is €40 to collect from UK and €20 from Ireland. Most of the EU is covered for a flat rate of €50 but not all countries in the EU or Europe is covered within this fee, please contact us to enquire if your country is covered for the €50 collection fee.

Order Processing FAQ


Why is my order status “awaiting customer response”?

90% of all orders get shipped the same day they are placed, providing the item is in stock and there are no issues. Of the 10% remaining the following are some reasons why the item has not shipped and will not ship until discussion with the customer:

a)      There is a query regarding item(s) on your order

b)      We need to speak to the card-holder to ensure the transaction was approved by same.

c)       We require further validation on your order as the order billing address does not match the billing address of the card-holder

d)      There may be a stock issue

e)      There may be a delay with the shipping of your order

f)       The correct shipping cost was not paid

If “awaiting customer response” is your current status it is advisable to contact Uberchild at your earliest convenience and following the steps which would have been emailed to you to change the status and continue processing your order. Orders with this status cannot be shipped, processed or refunded until the issue is resolved.

General FAQ

I paid in $ US Dollars or £ UK Pound Sterling. Why does my bank statement show a different price that i paid for my product?

As we are based in Europe we charge Euro as our base currency for all orders. If you see a difference in price on your bank statement than what you originally paid it’s because of the currency conversion charges from your bank. So if you paid £100 Pound Sterling for a product and your bank statement reads £102.50 Pound then the bank has charged you £2.50 for the conversion. Also please note that our currency conversion rates on our website is updated weekly, not daily so the direct currency conversion from Euro to your local currency can be off a little. For example £ Pound to € Euro can be .75p to €1 on a given day but our websites currency conversion could be .76p to €1 therefore your order could be off by a couple of pound. Note this end figure could be up or down in the figure you were expecting the product to cost. To summarise, the difference in price can be up or down on the figure you were expecting because of the currency conversion on the day the bank charges your account and also your own local bank rate are the main factors. It’s recommended to contact your local payment provider to find out what their charges are for converting currency if you feel the price is incorrect. 

An error shows up when i try to pay online

If you are unable to pay online or are getting an error message when trying to pay for an order it could be a browser related issue. If so then try the following steps:
