Delivery

Items are either sent by courier or using our local delivery drivers, depending on your location and the items you have ordered. Delivery prices range from £6.50 to £8.50, but offshore or remote locations require a surcharge on top of this. 

Our delivery carriers are usually willing to leave items in a safe place if you are out. Please use the Comments box when ordering to specify a location, but note that we cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to items as a result of being left unattended based on your instructions. 

Delivery Times

Unless you are otherwise informed by a member of staff, delivery will only take place on a weekday, and excluding national bank holidays. Estimated delivery times are calculated in working days (i.e. Monday to Friday and excluding holidays). In the case of a bank holiday, please allow an extra two working days for your order.

Following the receipt of your order, we aim to delivery your chosen items within 7 working days, assuming the goods are in stock and unless a longer delivery time is shown on the product's information page. You will be contacted by a member of staff if your order is going to take longer than this time.

Orders to be delivered to non-mainland or remote locations will take longer. Goods delivered by courier will usually arrive between 8 am and 6.30 pm, Monday to Friday.

While we do our utmost to ensure we meet the delivery times specified herein, occasionally this may be affected by factors beyond our control, such as industrial action, road traffic incidents, poor weather and handling errors.

You should then contact us and we can resolve it with our couriers.
