Returns & Refunds

Most orders received by 1pm will be despatched that working day and should be received at their UK destination by 1pm on the following business working day. A signature is required upon delivery.
- A guaranteed Special Delivery by 9am the following morning is also offered by Royal Mail. Please call us on 01483 202 232 before noon the day before required delivery for details of charges and confirmation that we can meet your requirement.
- Please note that some Royal Mail destinations such as the Highlands and Islands in Scotland or remote rural areas may take up to 2-3 business working days for Special Delivery and possibly more for First Class Recorded Delivery.
- Orders despatched on Fridays by Special Delivery can be guaranteed to be delivered on Saturday for which there is an additional charge levied by Royal Mail.
- If no-one is available to receive and sign for your Special or Recorded Delivery item, a card will be left offering you the option to have the package delivered at a later date or collected from your local post office.
