Shipping

Dispatch Times

Same day dispatch is not guaranteed although the majority of orders received by 1pm UK time are dispatched that day (Monday to Friday, excludes public holidays). 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 a few 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.

Please note parcels lost or damaged in transit are where applicable covered up to a maximum value of the goods purchased. If Royal Mail / International post option is chosen, we are not able to track a missing parcel and will have to wait 15 working days (25 working days for Airmail) before it can be considered lost in the post. We recommend using Royal Mail Special Delivery, UK Carrier or International Carrier services for large and / or high value goods which also offers the advantage of consignment tracking and quicker delivery.
