Express Delivery Next Working Day (if ordered before Midday)
In addition to our standard delivery services we also offer various Express Delivery upgrades including guaranteed next working day services. Any upgrades that are available will be shown on the checkout page with any extra costs that apply. Please note that next working day services will not arrive on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays.
Our shipping rates vary depending on the value, size and weight of an item. In multiple item orders we only charge for delivery of the item with the highest shipping rate so extra items ordered at the same time will be delivered free.
To find out the shipping rate for an order just add all the items to your shopping basket and the price for standard delivery to the UK will be automatically displayed, along with any shipping upgrades that are available at extra cost. If you think there is an error in your shipping, please let us know.
How We Send Your Order and Processing Times
All orders that we receive before 12pm on a weekday with express delivery selected will usually be processed and sent on the same day. Any orders placed after this time or on a weekend will be processed on the next working day. If there are any problems with your order we will try to contact you immediately by either phone or email.
Orders received with our standard delivery rate applied will be processed and sent within the 1-3 day timescale.
Small or low value items will usually be sent by Royal Mail First Class Post. These will usually be delivered within 3-5 days in the UK or within 5-8 days in Western Europe. Other countries might take a bit longer depending on the local postal service.
Large or high value items will usually be sent by UPS or DPD courier delivery or tracked postal service. These are signed-for services so please ensure that someone will be at the delivery address to sign for it. Delivery will usually be within 1-3 working days in the UK, 5-7 working days in Europe or upto 10 working days for most other countries.
Please note that “weekdays” and “working days” do not include Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays.
Many non-EU countries charge import duty, customs fees and local taxes on goods arriving from outside that country. Before placing an order with us for delivery to a non-EU country you should check if this will apply to you as the carrier will ask you to pay these charges before delivering your order. If they are unable to contact you or if you do not pay the amount required then the goods will be either returned to us or they may be destroyed depending on local regulations.
If you do not pay any local duty, fees or taxes that are due you will not be entitled to any refund unless the goods are released back to our courier by the authorities in the delivery country and they are returned to us in good condition. Also, the full cost of both the outward and return deliveries plus any other charges incurred will be deducted from any refund given.
