Delivery and returns

Postage and packaging:

Your order is usually posted within 2-3 working days. We will contact you as soon as possible if there is likely to be a delay with your order. If for any reason an item is not available, we will be in touch with an update on your delivery. Custom orders may take longer.

We offer free postage and packaging on orders over £60. There is a standard charge of £4.99 for orders less than £60 (unless stated in the product description). Heavier items may incur additional postage costs. The product listing will state whether an item may incur additional costs. Free postage will not apply for these items.

We deliver to the Mainland UK only and orders are sent by DPD 24 hour service. Our DPD collections are on Mondays and Thursdays so in most cases you can expect deliveries to be made on Tuesdays and Fridays. DPD will contact you with a one hour delivery slot and you have the option to change the delivery day, address or pick up from a local shop. Please note our products will not fit through a standard letterbox and parcels will need to be signed for.
