Delivery Service Speeds
See top of page for delivery Internationally
A choice of delivery services is offered as you checkout and estimates of delivery dates are provided with each service. The delivery costs are based on the total approximate packed weight (or in the case of polystyrene, volume) of the items in your basket. Deliveries are made from Monday to Friday (not at the weekends).
Economy/2nd class delivery to UK postcodes takes approximately 3-5 working days and 1st Class takes approximately 1-3 working days. The delivery times quoted relate to average delivery leadtimes for that service to mainland UK. At peak periods such as pre-Christmas, Royal Mail can be a little slower in some regions, so please allow for this and choose our Express service if you have a tight deadline. You can always be assured that orders are normally despatched from our warehouse the same day if you order by 12 noon, Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays. After 12 noon, orders will be sent out the following working day. Delivery costs are based on the weight of the total items in your shopping basket.
Please note we are not liable for any losses incurred due to a parcel arriving later than expected. In the event of a parcel being delayed due to extreme weather conditions, a refund of the delivery charge will not be made as this is out of our (and our courier's) control.
Urgent Express UK Delivery
If you live in the UK and have an urgent deadline, choose Express Delivery as this is a guaranteed service. If you pay before 12 noon, your order will be delivered the following working day (Monday to Friday) between 8am and 6pm to all mainland postcodes. If paid after 12 noon, you will receive your goods one day later (Monday to Friday).
