Delivery & Returns
We aim to dispatch all orders placed before 12:00pm (Monday-Friday) the next working day. Any orders placed after 12:00pm we aim to dispatch within 2 working days. We will send an email confirmation once your order has been dispatched by our warehouse.
Delivery & tracking
We have 2 delivery options available. Your dispatch email will include a tracking number but the tracking service varies depending on the service chosen.
Standard delivery - £3.49 or FREE for orders over £25 (3-5 working days)
Standard delivery is sent via The Delivery Group and handed over to Yodel for the final delivery. This is a partially tracked service and you can track your order up until The Delivery Group hands your parcel over to Yodel, at which point the rest of the delivery is untracked and we are unable to provide further tracking details.
Tracked delivery - £4.49 or FREE for orders over £35 (2-3 working days)
Tracked delivery is sent on a Royal Mail Tracked 48-hour service, with no signature required upon delivery. You can track your order in full, once it's been received by Royal Mail, by clicking on the tracking number in your dispatch email. Royal Mail aim to deliver your parcel within 2-3 working days (inc. Saturdays) but their delivery date is only an estimate.
PLEASE NOTE that with either delivery service, the delivery time and estimated delivery date (where applicable) are estimates only and are not guaranteed.
