Delivery Information

Personal Orders

For all personal orders, there is a flat fee of £3.95 (3-5 business days) unless the order total is more than £50 in which case we offer free delivery. We also offer a premium delivery service (1-2 business days) for a fee of £5.95.

Please note that delivery times depend on product availability, your location, and delivery selections. If your order has not arrived within the expected time frame and was sent via Royal Mail, please allow 10 working days for it to arrive before contacting Customer Services. If it was sent on a trackable service and there are issues with delivery, please contact us so we can resolve this for you.

Unfortunately, we cannot ship personal orders internationally.

Orders over £50

For in-stock unserviced items placed before 4 pm, we offer free delivery, and the order will be delivered to you the next working day.


Orders under £50

• For orders under £50, we offer a premium delivery option to receive your order the next working day at a nominal charge of £3.95.

• If the £3.95 charge for premium delivery is not chosen and your order is under the £50 threshold, then your order will be held up until 21 days. This is to give your order a chance to reach the required threshold for free delivery. If after the 21 days, your order still has not reached the threshold, then your order will be sent as normal free of charge.

• Orders over £50 for in-stock unserviced items placed after 4 pm would be dispatched to the customer the following day for delivery within 48 hours.
