Deliveries & Returns

UK Deliveries

If you place your order by 1pm we aim to deliver the next working day. Our carriers, DPD, will confirm dispatch of your order and provide you with the facility to track it to your door. On the day of delivery you will receive a second email from DPD to confirm a one hour window for delivery that day.

Our Next Day deliveries are made Monday to Friday during normal business hours, to ensure prompt delivery someone must be present to sign for the parcel.
