Economy and Standard Delivery
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.
Economy Delivery takes approximately 3-5 working days and 1st Class Delivery takes approximately 1-3 working days. These delivery windows are approximate and not guaranteed. If you need your goods for a tight deadline please choose Express delivery as that is a priority guaranteed service. You can be assured that orders are normally despatched from our warehouse the same day if you pay by 12 noon, Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays. Delivery costs are based on the weight of the total items in your shopping basket.
Please allow more time for your delivery in the peak pre-Christmas period or during periods of extreme weather, when Royal Mail deliveries can take a little longer than normal to arrive in some areas. Please note we are not liable for any losses experienced due to an order arriving after the estimated delivery date.
Urgent Express Delivery
If you have an urgent deadline, please 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). The only exception is for Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands, Express Delivery is a 48 hour service so if you ordered on a Monday before 12 noon, it would arrive on Wednesday. After 12 noon would arrive on Thursday. Please note, Express Delivery is not available to the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man. Craftmill Ltd is not liable for any losses which may arise from a delivery being delayed in arriving.
A refund of delivery charges will not be made if a delivery date is missed due to instances which are out of our control such as extreme weather conditions.
If you require timed Express delivery services, please contact our helpline on 0161 484 5888 Monday to Friday 9am-3pm.

All items offered on our website are subject to availability. We monitor sales and stock levels very closely. Very occasionally, due to unexpected high surges in demand, we will be out of stock of a product but rarely for more than a few days. Normally this will not affect the expected delivery date as we always upgrade the postal service on any delayed item when it comes back into stock to ensure we meet our delivery estimates. If we cannot deliver on time for any reason, we will contact you quickly to offer you alternative product options or a refund.
During peak sales periods we may occasionally sell out of an item and if the stock cannot be replenished by our distributor, at that point we are not obliged to fulfil the order and will instead offer alternative products or we may offer a refund. We will always get in touch promptly to discuss this. We recommend that you do not advance sell products without having your stock in place to fulfil it first!
Please note we reserve the right to refuse supply to any abusive customer or to a known competitor. We also reserve the right to limit the amount of stock that any individual may purchase so that we can ensure we meet the needs of our wider customer base.
