Delivery Information

We have a variety of delivery options to suit your requirements, which we keep at realistic prices reflecting the cost to us. All orders of £70.00 or above are delivered free of charge using Royal Mail 1st Class Recorded Post. Orders below £10 can be sent by Royal Mail Standard service for just £2.50. For orders with a value over £10 we use signed for services to avoid the disappointment and inconvenience of lost parcels.


Deliveries are subject to availability. If we have any problem with fulfilling your order we shall try to contact you by telephone, but if unable to do so, will send an email. You will receive an email confirming the dispatch of your order.


We aim to dispatch orders within 1 working day. Most items are delivered from stock, however a few items may be subject to longer delivery times. This will be indicated in the item description. Delivery should be within 1-3 days of dispatch within the UK, or 10 days for International orders.


Our daily cut-off order time is 1pm. We may process orders received after this, but cannot guarantee to do so. If your order is urgent, and you are placing it after this time, please telephone to check if we are still able to process it that same day.


If you are not available to accept delivery at home during normal working hours, we suggest that you request that the goods be delivered to a work address rather than your home address.


International postage rates vary widely depending upon weight. Please contact us when placing your order so we can quote you the best-value delivery option.
