Shipping InformationWe offer the following delivery services
Some items are available for Express Delivery, for only an additional £2.99.
To make things easier for our customers we show on the product page beside the icon when this will be delivered if Express Delivery is selected at the checkout.
Please Note: The delivery date changes each day at 2pm and will also change to take account of weekends and courier bank holidays.
Some items are available for Weekend Delivery, from an additional £3.00.
Order before 2pm on any given Friday to receive your order the same weekend.
We offer FREE DELIVERY on most orders over £39*
*However, regional surcharges may apply and will be clearly shown at checkout.
Your order will be delivered on a Standard Delivery service.
Our standard delivery charge is £4.99 no matter how many items you order. Regional surcharges may apply and will be clearly shown at checkout.
For customers who opt for Standard Delivery we will despatch your goods within 2 days (excluding weekends and bank holidays) and these will be delivered by one of our courier partners on a 2 or 3 day service, so it will take 5 or 6 working days to get the goods to you.
If a customer places an order on a weekend, we aim to have the goods before the next weekend. Some items delivered from our satellite warehouses may take a little longer to be delivered; in these cases you will be alerted to our expected despatch lead-time before checkout.
Some of our bulkier items require a TWO MAN delivery service. Our courier partner will contact you directly to arrange a time when they will deliver the order.
We use this icon to draw your careful attention to information regarding the delivery of the product you are considering purchasing.
This will most commonly be to alert you if despatch is likely to take longer than our standard 3 days. We will also alert you if some of our larger items have any delivery area restrictions (e.g. Mainland UK only).
You will be reminded and asked to accept any exceptions to our standard 2-day despatch terms during the checkout process.
Depending on the courier service we need to use for your order, delivery addresses in the following areas may require us to make a customised delivery charge. If a customised charge is required this will be clearly indicated at the shipping options page.
