Order & Delivery information
“First Class” shipping to the UK is via Royal Mail first class post. These items will normally be dispatched within 2-3 working days, and Royal Mail state they aim to deliver their next working day in the UK.
“Special Delivery” can be chosen if you require a faster delivery in the UK. We will dispatch in 1-2 working days via Royal Mail Special Delivery, which is a guaranteed next working day service. Please note it is also a signed for service, and if there is nobody available to sign, you may receive a card instructing you to rearrange delivery directly with Royal Mail, or collect from your local Royal Mail depot.
Overseas customers should choose the “Europe via Airmail”, or “Rest of World via Airmail”, depending on their location. These items will be dispatched within 2-3 working days via Royal Mail. Delivery times cannot be guaranteed for items sent overseas, however as a guide, delivery within Europe tends to be up to a week, while the rest of the World 10-14 days.
Channel Islands and Isle of Man customers can choose “First Class” shipping, but should be aware delays can occur because of customs and security checks. “Special Delivery” is available for the Isle Of Man in IM1 Postcode areas only, and Jersey in the Channel Islands only.
