Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates
Last updated on 27/03/2020
Although we are trying to maintain business as normal, some of our couriers have informed us that they are experiencing heavy volumes of online ordering, due to COVID-19, and are unable to guarantee next day delivery.
We have therefore removed the 1st Class Signed For service from our options due to this, and now only offer 2nd Class Signed For via Royal Mail.
Please Note: We have taken the difficult decision to now only dispatch orders on a Monday and Thursday. We apologize for the inconvenience.
We will continue to monitor the situation very closely and will amend our procedures if guidance changes.
Please Contact Us if you require any further information.
Thank you all for your patience and support in these unprecedented times.
We can ship to virtually any address. When you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose.
Please also note that the shipping rates for all items we sell are weight-based.
When delivered If you’re not in and there is no one to leave the Goods with, you may be asked to collect the Order from your local collection office in the case of Royal Mail. The delivery times are given to Us in good faith and are not legally binding. Please also note that certain postcodes do unfortunately incur extra delivery days.
1st Class Next Day Delivery
This option is available on orders placed before 12pm Monday to Friday and will be sent using Royal Mail's Special Delivery service. You can select Next Day delivery when you go through the checkout process. This option unfortunately is not available to all postcodes. Delivery on the Next Day service is made on working days and does not include weekends and bank holidays.
2nd Class 2-3 working day Delivery
This option refers to the timescale of delivery only and doesn't include the time from when we receive Your order. This service is with Royal Mail and delivery is on week days only. On the whole most parcels do arrive within 2 - 3 working days, however we are at the mercy of Royal Mail and occasionally delays, regrettably may occur.
Our aim is to dispatch Goods as soon as possible using the Royal Mail Service, if you need goods for a specific time or date please contact us to arrange this or use the next day delivery option ( before 12pm). At checkout you can use the drop down menu to select other available shipping options which may include standard 2-3 working day delivery and signed for delivery. Next day delivery is unfortunately not available on all postcodes. Although on the whole, parcels arrive within there time window, we are at the mercy of Royal Mail and cannot guarantee this. We can change the delivery address up to the point when the item is dispatched, after that point it cannot be changed. Please see our terms and conditions for further information.
*Please Note* UK Public Holidays that fall on a Friday or Monday will affect dispatch times, orders will therefore be dispatched the next-working-day.
Goods to Ireland are generally sent by Royal Mail Tracked & Signed for service 3-5 days.
Delivery charges are based on the weight of Your Order and the delivery address that you give when You place Your Order. We can change the delivery address up to the point when the item is dispatched, after that point it cannot be changed. Please see our terms and conditions for further information.
We use Royal Mail Tracked & Signed for service. We have set rates for shipping outside of the UK, these are weight-based and will be calculated at checkout. Please be aware that we may, due to cost and weight restrictions, need to ship your order in separate packages but will supply you with both tracking numbers when your order has been dispatched. Delivery to Europe can take between 3-5 working days from the date it was dispatched. Although we are at the mercy of Royal Mail and cannot guarantee this.
If you’ve not received your order within 7 working days of receiving the dispatch e-mail please contact us immediately.
Finally we advise you to check the contents of the order with the inventory sent with the goods. In the rare instance that goods are missing, please contact us within 24 hours and we will happily send out the missing goods at no extra cost to you.
If goods are damaged or faulty please inform us within 3 working days of receiving your order.
