You have selected United Kingdom (excl. Northern Ireland) as your destination country.  We aim to dispatch orders within two working days of your order being placed, subject to stock availability.  In the case of products being out of stock, you will be made aware of this during the checkout process and as instructed in your order acknowledgement e-mail.  We will contact you within one working day if we discover that a product is likely to be out of stock for longer than 14 days.

When do we dispatch?

We only dispatch orders on weekdays.  Items are not dispatched on Saturdays and Sundays. Therefore, orders placed after 12pm on a Friday will not be dispatched until the following week, normally Monday.  Courier deliveries do not normally occur on a Saturday, and we give no guarantee that you will receive delivery on a Saturday.

When will you receive your delivery?

Once goods leave our premises we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time and date, however we will always do our very best to get the goods to you as promptly as possible. The vast majority of our orders are sent with courier, except in cases of very small items under £25 in value which are sometimes sent with Royal Mail.

Will your order require a signature upon delivery?

Packages dispatched with couriers will require a signature from a person at the delivery address.  Goods sent via Courier service will not be left without a signature.
