We also offer FREE UK Standard Delivery for orders over £25. Please see below for further information about UK delivery options. But these prices are subject to change.
Delivery costs are additional to the displayed price and vary depending on the delivery service you select, the country of delivery and the quantity/weight of goods ordered. Delivery charges will be confirmed to you, before your order is accepted.

Next Day Delivery: Parcel will be delivered typically on the next working day
We occasionally run offers on delivery costs where, for example, we will upgrade you to Express Delivery for the same cost as standard delivery. Please see "Express Delivery".
Delivery times depend on the delivery service selected and the types of goods ordered. We always aim to despatch all goods in stock as quickly as possible.
Couriers will require a signature to ensure safe receipt of your goods. If you are not available to collect and sign on the courier’s first visit they may leave it with a neighbour, or in a safe place (i.e. hidden from sight and protected from the rain). A calling card will be posted through your door to let you know this has been done. If there is no safe place a calling card will be left with the courier’s contact number to arrange re-delivery. Our couriers will deliver until 9pm in most areas!
The couriers will attempt redelivery up to a maximum of three (3) times and if delivery is not successful after the third attempt they will return the goods to us. In these cases we can resend the items and in some cases issue a refund upon receival of goods. We reserve the right to recharge the delivery cost for re-delivery.
