Delivery & Returns

Delivery Information:

The majority of our stock is available for next working day delivery.
Orders over £75 include free delivery. Orders under this amount are charged £4.50 inc vat for delivery.
Surcharges apply to certain postcodes for orders under and over £75. This is based on the additional charges that we incur from the couriers we use. When an item is ordered any delivery costs incurred will be automatically added to the order based on its value, weight, size and delivery location.

It will be specified on each product page the time frame within which you will receive your goods. The delivery method used is based on the value, size, weight and location. Small low value orders will be shipped using Royal Mail Tracked First Class service. All other orders will be shipped using couriers on a next working day service.  If a product is needed urgently, customers are able to select timed next day delivery, Saturday and Sunday services at an additional charge. This option is only available for eligible items and is dependent on stock availability and your delivery address.

All stocked items, ordered before 3.30pm will be processed and shipped on the same day. Orders placed before the cut off time on Friday will be delivered on Monday. Orders placed after the cut off on Friday will be delivered on Tuesday. Saturday and Sunday deliveries are only available for orders placed before the cut off time on Friday.   In some instances where stock is held at our suppliers, shipping may take an extra couple of days.

Please be aware that we make every effort possible to deliver your goods within these time scales. However, some products, although listed in the shop inventory, may at times be out of stock. Customers will be notified by email when a product dispatch is delayed and advised an estimated delivery date.

Some Bulky/multi-parcel orders may also incur a delivery surcharge.

Some Bulky/multi-parcel orders are classed as oversized which are then handed over to a third party specialist courier to complete the delivery. This adds an additional 1-2 days transit time.

We aim for you to have received your goods within a maximum of 2-3days. If you have not received your items within this time then please contact us at [email protected] or call us on 01727 790750.

Orders for offshore and highland locations may be charged a delivery surcharge and will take longer to be delivered. Due to charges incurred by our courier service the following postal codes may have additional charges automatically applied to the order, please add the items to your basket and proceed to the checkout, once you have added your address any additional charges will be displayed at the bottom of the page:
