Delivery methods and periods

The methods that we use to deliver our products, and the time periods within which delivery is usually completed, are as follows:

Free and standard orders to a delivery address on the United Kingdom mainland will be sent with Royal Mail on a Tracked 48 service and the typical period for delivery by this method is 2- 3 working days; depending on location. If you require a quicker delivery please upgrade to an expedited service. For this we use DPD couriers who can deliver to most mainland postcodes and will email or text you with a 1 hr delivery slot. Orders to other postcodes in Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands & Islands, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man and Channel Islands will be sent on a Royal Mail Tracked 24 signed for service.

All orders placed before 12 pm Monday to Friday will be dispatched the same day, the standard service will be delivered in 2-3 working days and if the expedited service is chosen will be delivered next working day. All orders taken after 12pm Monday to Friday will be dispatched on the next working day. Please note Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays are NOT working days and orders taken will leave on the next working day. The delivery periods set out in this section are indicative only, and whilst we will make every effort to ensure that you receive your delivery in good time, we do not guarantee delivery before the end of the stated period. We may conduct fraud screening checks before dispatching the product, and these checks may delay your delivery. If the delivery is likely to be delayed as a result of fraud screening checks, we will notify you.

Delivery times are a guideline only, Saturday deliveries are subject to couriers and are not guaranteed.
