How long will it take my order to reach me?
We despatch all items as soon as they are available, so parcels may arrive separately. In stock items are delivered on average within 5 days – although we ask you to allow up to 10 days, as some items are despatched to you directly from one of our trusted specialist suppliers.
If you have selected Next-Day Express Delivery and ordered before 6pm, then your order will be delivered during the next working day (Please be aware that an order received before the deadline on a Friday will usually be delivered on the Saturday, but occasionally can arrive on the following Monday. If you place an order after the Friday 6.00pm deadline then your delivery will arrive on the following Tuesday).
If we have your email address, we will keep you informed via email every step of the way, with an order confirmation, despatch, tracking and delivery detail emails.
Please let us know if there is a safe place where we can leave your order if you’re not at home when we deliver.
