Shipping & Deliveries
We send our goods via Royal Mail to you secured in strong plastic, despatch bags. For orders up to 1.5/2 kg, we use double-seal bags instead of boxes to make it easier for you to receive our goods through your post box. It also makes life simpler for you if you want to return anything to us free of charge. For heavier parcels we use a large single seal bag which can still be used to return your goods, if necessary.
Parcels over 2kgs are not accepted by Royal Mail business post, so they will either be sent by courier (DHL) or in multiple Royal Mail Parcels.
Business 24/1st Class: £4.95
Standard delivery within the UK costs £4.95 irrespective of the weight of the parcel. Orders should ordinarily arrive within 2 to 5 working days.
Business 48: £3.50

If you anticipate that you might be out when we attempt delivery of your item(s), we suggest that you designate a ‘safe place’ for us to leave your parcel. Please enter your designated place within the delivery instructions on the order page. If we can’t deliver your parcel through your postbox and nobody is available to receive it, it will be returned to your local sorting office where it will be held for three weeks.
NEXT WORKING DAY UK Delivery with DPD: We are now offering a next working day delivery for £6.00 with DPD for orders that are in with us by noon as DPD collects from us at 1pm every day. If you have an urgent order and it is past noon, give us a ring on 01865 989123 and we will do our best to get your order into the DPD collection for that day. We'll provide DPD with your email/mobile number so that they can then reach out to you to let you know that that they are delivering to you and on the day of delivery they will confirm to you the hour of delivery with a number of options to choose from if the time of delivery is not convenient for you. Orders placed by noon on Friday will be delivered on the following working day which is usually Monday. We expect to offer Saturday and Sunday delivery very soon.

We offer a next-day delivery service for addresses within the UK only, with orders of in-stock items received on weekdays before 1 pm guaranteed to arrive the next working day. This costs £8.95.

In the event that an item is temporarily out of stock, we will notify you of the delay and despatch it as soon as it arrives. If you do not wish to accept the new delivery date, simply email email@example.com or call 01865 989123 and we will cancel your order. Your credit/debit card will not have been charged as your order will not have been despatched.
