How do I know you are trustworthy?
We are a small business based in East Yorkshire and we have served over 6,500 customers since our first publication in 2007. We use secure payment providers including Sagepay and Barclaycard Merchant Services and we have a trade account with Michelin, they all do rigorous checks on us before they will supply us with their products and services.
Most of all though we want you to be happy, long term customers of Mapsman and also for you tell your friends about us, so we will always try to deliver the best customer service and deal with you fairly!
Our best references are our existing customers who have kindly written in to thank us even when we have messed up, (which like everyone we occasionally do).
How do you secure payment details?
We use Sagepay www.sagepay.com as our secure payment providers and your details are entered directly onto their secure servers and we accept the following payment methods through them:
What are your delivery times?
We take pride in our prompt despatch and the majority of orders are posted first class on the day of order, when ordered before 15:00 on weekdays and before 10:00 on Saturdays, with no posting on Sunday.
We will email you to let you know that your order has been shipped so you can look out for it, or alternatively you can log on and track your order.
To ensure your purchases arrive safely we often use signed for services even when they haven't been specifically chosen by you. These services mean that someone needs to be at the specified delivery address to receive and sign for the delivery. We provide alternate delivery addresses if it is more convenient to deliver to a work address.
If you need your order by a specific date then please call us on 01482 871756 and we will do our best to make it happen for you!
What happens if my order hasnít arrived?
If your order has not arrived in the timescale you expect and you have received our email saying that your order has been posted, or you have logged on and your order history says the order has been shipped then please contact us immediately on 01482 871756.
Why Buy More... Multiple Purchases?
There is a major benefit in purchasing more than one product at a time, as the postage will stay the same! For example if you live in the UK and buy 10 folded maps the postage will still be £2.49.
Do you offer an urgent delivery service?
If you require an order urgently and live in the UK then we offer a special delivery service using Royal Mail: if ordered before 2:30pm Mon-Fri it will be delivered before 1:00pm the next day. This costs £6.20.
Alternatively please phone us on 01482 871756 and we will discuss your order and the options to get your order to you quickly along with any special delivery rates that may apply.
What happens if I am unhappy with my purchase?
Occasionally, we know that you may want to return items and very occasionally items maybe faulty or we might mess up.
That's why we offer a 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed, returns policy.
We hope you will be very happy with your purchase but if for any reason you aren't, then at anytime within 30 days from your order or delivery you can

When you send the product back to us please make sure you have packaged the item securely and if possible enclose a copy of the electronic receipt and/or your name and address details.
If we do not receive the item back from you, then, we may not be able to refund you so you please consider registered post.
As soon as we receive notice of your cancellation of an order, which we haven't shipped then we will refund you for the purchase.
When we have received items back in their original condition then we will refund you and also give you a postage credit against your next purchase to cover the cost of posting items back to us.
If the item is faulty or if we have messed up then we will liaise with you to get the item back at our expense and either exchange it or refund you as you wish.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of Garmin Map Products then these are NON returnable if they have been opened, as we cannot re use them, return them or resell them. If they are faulty then, of course, we will replace them.

Orders and Fraudulent Activity
Unfortunately, in today's society there are people who use credit and debit cards to obtain products fraudulently.
We use fraud protection software which highlights the risk of fraud to us and on occasions we might use that information to ask you for more details before we ship goods to you. We might also refuse to ship goods to you on the basis of this information or if we believe there is something wrong with the order.
If we ask for more details please do not be offended as we are protecting you and ourselves from these criminals.
Any fraudulent activity will be reported to the Police and acted upon!
We want you to be happy, long term customers of Mapsman and also for you tell your friends about us, so we will always deal with you fairly!
