Frequently asked questions

How much is postage?

Postage is charged by total weight of the goods to be sent, which is calculated at the time of checkout. The amount charged will be the same as Royal Mail, plus VAT.

What is the delivery time?

Most items are dispatched within 24 hours of the order being received. Actual delivery times are dependant upon Royal Mail service, but generally special delivery is next day, 1st class is 1-3 days, and second class 2-5 days. Royal mail state that 1st class parcels may take up to working 15 days for delivery. If an item is delayed, it is necessary to wait 15 working days before any claim or investigation can be made.

Can I receive by next day?

Please select "special delivery" as your delivery option. If goods are in stock and if the order is received before 10am, your parcel will be reviewed next day (Monday to Thursday only). Special delivery parcels that are dispatched on Friday may be received on Saturday but Royal Mail cannot guarantee this. These will likely be delivered on the Monday.
