Dispatch Times

We aim to dispatch orders within 1-3 working days of order receipt, often same day but depends on how many orders are going through the warehouse at that time.

Some product lines can take longer with their lead time specified in the particular product page.

Where we do not have sufficient stock to send an order complete but new stocks are expected within 3-7 days days, we may hold the order until it can be sent complete. This is especially important for international deliveries to avoid the risk of the customer being charged a second time for import duties and taxes for a back order.
