All orders within the UK are dispatched FREE via Royal Mail 1st Class mail which may take 2-3 working days from postal date to arrive. However 95% of our customers receive their order next day if they place orders before 3pm. To guarantee next day delivery upgrade your postage to Special Delivery before 3pm. We aim to arrange shipment of all orders the same day as recipt of the order. Very occasionally items can sell out and your order may have to be deleayed until the item comes back in stock from our suppliers.
Any supplied shipping dates are estimates only.
Please note that when shipping products internationally, you should be aware that cross-border shipments may be subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
Some items are too large to fit through the letterbox. Therefore it is always wise to provide us with a work address if no-one will be at home. You can do this by leaving a note on the PayPal note section.
It is often the case that many items that seem to be undelivered are in fact at your local Royal Mail collection office or with neighbours waiting to be collected. Calling cards are not always left by Royal Mail. We therefore ask you to contact them before contacting us.
For Christmas Deliveries, we recommend that you order by the 18th December. We will endeavour to dispatch all in stock orders same day, however we cannot guarantee delivery on or before the 24th December as the post may be delayed in your area.
Please be aware that your order may be delayed during holiday periods including bank holidays, adverse weather conditions, or Royal Mail industrial action. If your order is urgent please contact us by phone before you place your order to make alternative arrangements during such times.
