Delivery & Returns

Delivery Methods

Items will be dispatched using Royal Mail 2nd class, Royal Mail 1st class, or next day courier, depending on the weight and value of the items and the options selected at checkout.  We may also opt to upgrade your delivery method (e.g. from Royal Mail to Courier) at our sole discretion, or opt to deliver your order via our local delivery service.  The delivery cost is based on the weight of the products and reflects the cost of packaging and posting each order.  We keep our delivery costs as low as possible.

If all items are in stock, orders are usually despatched within 2-3 working days, often sooner.  If we are awaiting delivery or any item your order may be slightly delayed.  Where possible we will contact you to let you know. 

In the unlikely event that you do not receive your order when expected please telephone or email with your unqiue order reference.  We will confirm the date of despatch and where necessary ask you to sign a declaration of non-delivery and then post a replacement item out to you. Please check that your parcel has not been left at the sorting office following a failed delivery attempt.  In the event that a parcel is returned to us after non-collection we will charge a second delivery fee for redelivery to you.
