• I’ve received my fireworks, but I no longer want them.
We don’t offer a sale or return policy. Please see the DELIVERY/COLLECTION page for further details on this subject.
• An item is damaged or missing from my order
We take photos of every box that leaves us and the contents of each carton is noted on our system so if an entire carton goes missing we know what is inside. The order will be labelled box 1 of 3, 2 of 3 etc so if you’re missing a box please let us know which one it is when you call. In the unfortunate circumstance of a damaged or missing item(s) we will issue either a credit note or a refund (or at our discretion redelivery of the missing item if in stock).
For damaged items please take photos and email them along with your order number or consignment note number to email@example.com. We will instruct you on how to deal with the damaged item.
For missing items please email your order or consignment note number along with details of the missing item or carton number to firstname.lastname@example.org
For more details on what to do if your order is damaged or you are missing an item from your order see our blog post on damaged or missing fireworks.
• How do I track my order?
Currently we do not have the facility for you to track your order online. If you’re wondering where your order is give us a call on 01438 821657 or email us email@example.com and we can find out for you.
• How much is delivery?
Delivery will be calculated on checkout as it depends where in the country your order is being delivered to. Delivery charges are based on your postcode area.
• When will my fireworks be delivered?
We will usually call or email you to advise of dispatch and when to expect delivery. Orders placed for delivery around Bonfire Night are dispatched from the beginning of October onwards.
• Do you have a shop that I can visit?
Yes, we do! The Love Fireworks shop is at 92A London Road, Sandy, Beds. SG19 1DW. We are off the A1 southbound just before the Sandy roundabout. We have plenty of on-site parking and you're sure of a warm welcome. The shop is seasonal and is only open at certain times of the year. We open from the 15th October until the 10th November and again from 27th December until the 31st December for New Year's Eve fireworks. Although the shop is closed at other times of the year you can order online 365 days a year and collect from the shop all year round with enough notice - although payment must be made online.
• What are the best fireworks to buy?
We’ve got a fantastic selection of rockets, roman candles, ready-made display packs – in fact, everything you need to put on a safe and spectacular show. The best fireworks are right here for you! Even if you decide not to buy from us, always use a reputable supplier that is licensed to sell fireworks all year round.
• What if it rains?
If the weather is inclement, we recommend using plastic bags or clingfilm to protect your fireworks from the wet – especially if you are setting up sometime before firing. Cakes, fountains and roman candles will easily fire through a layer of plastic, but we recommend uncovering wheels and rockets before you fire them.

• Can I set my fireworks off anywhere?
It is illegal to set fireworks off or throw them in a public place such as a park or street. You MUST have the land-owner’s permission to set fireworks off.

• How much room do I need to set off fireworks safely?
This depends on what fireworks you are buying. F1 fireworks are designed for use in close proximity (indoors) and includes our Indoor Fireworks. F2 fireworks are labelled for viewing at 8m or 15m depending on the effects and the power. F3 fireworks are much more powerful and as such are labelled for viewing at 25m.
• Do I need to notify anyone that I am having a display?
Legally, no. BUT we do wholeheartedly recommend that you let your neighbours know you’re having fireworks (especially outside of the Nov 5th season) and especially those with pets or young children. If you live near to fields with horses or cattle, then out of courtesy you should let the owners know. Other people you should think about letting know are the local police station, fire brigade and coastguard where necessary.

• How should I store my fireworks when then arrive?
Your fireworks will arrive in strong, sturdy packaging. Check your order when it arrives but put the fireworks back into the boxes that they came in. This will help protect them. Store them in a dry, cool place away from and damp and away from all sources of ignition.
• How old do I have to be to buy fireworks?
You have to be at least 18 years of age to buy fireworks. It is illegal to possess fireworks in the UK if you are aged under 18.

You can from lovefireworks.co.uk! Suppliers selling fireworks all year round have a special licence allowing to do so.
