If in any doubt or your order is urgent, we strongly advise you select the overnight delivery option. Other delivery options offer approximate times only, we cannot guarantee a specific date when your parcel will arrive. 

No items are dispatched during weekends and bank holidays. If you order on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, your order will dispatched the following Monday. If you order on a bank holiday, your order will dispatched the next working day.

 

OVERNIGHT DELIVERY

Urgent overnight deliveries are usually sent via courier, to arrive the next working day. If this service is not available or is being affected by the high workload of the delivery companies - this will be clearly stated at checkout. Overnight orders are not delivered on Bank Holidays, they will be delivered the next working day. The courier will usually be sent a one hour delivery window for convenience, with options to deliver to a neighbour or a safe place. It is important to provide us with the correct mobile telephone and email address details so you can fully make the most of this service. Orders will arrive between 8.30 am and 5.30 pm.

We can occasionally accommodate overnight orders that have been placed after 1pm.  Please contact us on 01508 489361 before ordering to confirm if this is possible.

SATURDAY DELIVERY

We have temporarily removed our Saturday delivery option. This is due to the unreliability of Saturday courier services currently, and most delivery companies are not guaranteeing Saturday delivery. We do not want to promise a service that we cannot guarantee. 

EUROPEAN & INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY

All international shipments are currently suspended. We apologise for any inconvenience. We only ship to UK currently.
