Our delivery options
We offer a range of delivery options:
DPD Next Day (Standard Delivery)
We will always endeavour to despatch your order the same day, providing we receive your order by 4.30pm and our security checks are satisfactory. Any orders received after 4.30pm will be despatched the following working day. Orders sent by this route typically take one working day to arrive.
DPD Saturday Next Day
For those who would like their order delivered on Saturday, we offer a Saturday delivery service, providing you place your order before 4pm on Friday.
Available for smaller and lower value items, this is a non-tracked service with no insurance. If you wish to have your items tracked and insured, please choose our DPD 24-hour insured Delivery Service with text and email notification instead.
If time is of the essence, you may like to select one of our "time of day" options which includes DPD 10:00AM, and DPD 12:00PM. These options are available under the 'High Priority Delivery' option for guaranteed next working day delivery.
Our delivery charges are as follows*:
Our DPD Next Day Standard delivery charge applies to parcels with a delivery address in mainland UK.
Online carriage from £6.95+VAT
Telephone orders from £6.95+VAT
Certain items may attract an additional carriage charge which will be automatically calculated at checkout.
For parcels that are not being delivered in mainland UK, an additional charge will be applied.
Customers inside the London Congestion Zone will be charged £0.50 extra on all courier delivery options to cover the congestion charge.
Unfortunately once an order has been confirmed at the end of the checkout stage no amendments to the carriage price or type can be made.
We endeavour to despatch all orders received before 4.30pm on the same day. On our Standard service, these orders will almost always be delivered next working day by our couriers; however, next working day delivery is not guaranteed.
