Bank Holiday Updates
All orders after 12pm Thursday 28th April will be shipped on our standard service which will be an extended service due to the bank holiday - 5-7 days.
COVID-19 UPDATE - We will continue to operate our business in accordance with government guidelines. We are accepting and dispatching all orders as usual.
For accurate delivery prices we recommend taking your item(s) to checkout where a Shipping charge will be calculated based on your postcode.
All orders include free UK mainland delivery. There may be a surcharge for addresses located outside of mainland UK, including addresses within the Highlands, Scottish Islands, Isle of Man, Isle of Sicily, Jersey, Guernsey and BFPO (British Forces Post Office).
Our carrier delivers between 8am and 10pm, and in some cases, a signature may be required.
If you are not around, the carrier will try your neighbours, or (if a signature is not required) will try to find a safe, dry place to leave your parcel.
Alternatively, they'll leave a calling card with the details on how to re-arrange delivery or depending on the courier a re-delivery attempt may be made without contact.
Please note deliveries outside of the UK can take up to 10 working days and sometimes longer.

Damaged In Transit
Before you refuse the delivery, we ask that you check inside the box to establish if the item itself has been damaged. (The packaging is simply used to protect the item whilst in transit.) If you find the contents to be spoilt, please sign for the goods as damaged and contact us by email at email@example.com. We appreciate that all items that are delivered are not necessarily purchased for immediate use. So to avoid disappointment on opening we would ask that all your parcels are checked thoroughly on arrival and then in the unlikely event that you are not completely satisfied with the condition of how your order has arrived we ask you to contact us with images of any damage to the item and the packaging within 24hrs of receipt so that any problems can be rectified immediately, this is the timeframe that enables us to claim from the couriers insurance. Outside of this timeframe we are unable to claim from the courier’s insurance.
If you receive a delivery which has been damaged in transit, we are able to replace the product 'like for like' free of charge in the quickest possible timeframe. For some items damaged in transit we will replace the damaged parts 'like for like' only and not the complete carton. This prevents the likelihood of the whole carton getting damaged as a whole carton for the second time. Replacement parts are packed individually and securely for transit.
The packaging/box around the product is simply there to protect the item whilst in transit. Due to the weight of some parcels and the distance travelled through many courier depot's we cannot guarantee that the external packaging will not be marked on arrival.
Re-delivery charges may apply if the consignment is refused for reasons other than the goods not conforming with your consumer rights e.g. the goods are faulty or not as described.
In order for us to keep our shipping prices low and service levels high, we use a number of couriers which are allocated depending on the different dimensions and weight of your order.
Once a carrier has been assigned, you will be notified of the carrier in your confirmation of dispatch email.
