Delivery & Returns

Please Note:

Due to planned industrial action, some Parcelforce staff will be striking on 26th and 31st August 2022, and then again on 8th & 9th September 2022  Please can we urge you to plan early and order in time for us to despatch your goods before these dates.  Please also be aware that there is a bank holiday on Monday 29th August which will potentially cause further delays.

On the days surrounding this action, we are assuming that Parcelforce will be extremely busy, and therefore there will likely be further delays at their distribution centres.

For deliveries to Mainland UK, products will normally be dispatched to you within 7 days on a 24hr or 48hr delivery service, however please allow 14 days around seasonal peak times.

All deliveries within mainland England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are made via a parcel or courier service between the hours of 8am and 6pm, Monday – Friday. We do not dispatch on weekends or bank holidays.

Please note all orders will require a customer signature upon delivery. If you have any problems with your delivery then contact us on 01568 613600  or Contact Us.

For ex-Mainland UK orders, please refer to the cost chart below. Delivery times are usually 3 days from dispatch.
