Delivery Information

Details of our Delivery Service

STATUS:

25th July: Parcelforce is advising that currently, standard delivery is now taking 1-2 days.

Covid-19 is impacting the availability of some products and affecting delivery arrangements. Due to extra workload, Guaranteed Next Day and Saturday delivery services are currently suspended but although we are advising a 48hr delivery schedule, many orders still arriving Next Business Day.

Please note that Parcelforce is also declining to carry some larger items in their vans and lorry delivery is required instead which is requiring us to pay a large shipping surcharge (typically £45 +VAT for pallet delivery). The products affected are unpredictable and we do not know which are affected until the order is processed. Where this happens we will advise the customer who may wish not to progress the order.

Changes to Parcelforce procedures have been introduced to give greater protection to delivery staff and customers See  https://www.parcelforce.com/coronavirus

Delivery Charges

Orders over £75 (excl VAT) have FREE delivery for UK Mainland Delivery postcode addresses (see Yellow Zone map). 

Orders under £75 (excl VAT) are charged £4.95 (+ VAT) for UK Mainland Delivery postcode addresses (see Yellow Zone map)

Products indicated as 'Stock Items' will be scheduled for delivery Next Working Day unless otherwise specified on the item description (e.g. larger appliances or heavy items requiring lorry transport). Exceptionally, adverse weather or other transport disruptions, for which we have no control, may cause some delay.

We strive to deliver both Free and standard paid shipping of items held in stock for next working day (currently 95% success rate)

Despatch Scheduling

To achieve next day delivery, please place orders by 3.30pm. We do our best to process later orders for next working day delivery but late afternoon / evening orders will be processed the following day. Call us for advice if your order is urgent.

Orders placed Thursday evening and Friday, unless a Saturday delivery option is selected, will be delivered Monday.

We do not currently operate next day delivery for orders received over the weekend. Orders placed between 3.30 Friday and Sunday inclusive, will be processed on Monday for delivery Tuesday.

Bank Holidays: we publish amended delivery schedules in advance.

Parcel Tracking Information

After your order has been processed and when available, we will forward you the tracking link for your delivery. Ordinarily, this information will give you your delivery time to within about 60 minutes of arrival.

Offshore & Remote Postcodes (Red & Blue Zones)

Due to distance, we are unable to offer a premium delivery service (Next day before noon & Saturday deliveries) to postcodes in these zones.
