Subject to stock availability, we aim to despatch within 24 hours of processing your order. (orders placed on Friday, Saturday or Bank Holidays will take slightly longer). All orders will be shipped by our designated courier to addresses within mainland UK on a 3 -5 working day service from collection.
Delivery charges apply to mainland UK orders only, and will be outlined on your order form, before payment is processed. Certain postcodes are deemed to be in “Remote” areas and in this instance, including items marked as “free delivery”, an additional charge may be required. Our Online Services team will contact you if this applies.
Additional costs for mailing orders outside of mainland UK will apply. In this event, we will contact you with details of the charge before your order is dispatched. If you are unhappy with this and do not wish to proceed, a full refund will be provided.
For special delivery requests please email [email protected]
Express Delivery is a faster service than our standard 3-5 working day delivery. Orders placed before 8am Monday to Thursday will be sent by Royal Mail 24 or Parcelforce 48 depending on size, and we would expect you to receive your item within 48 hours. Orders placed after this time will be sent by the same service, but we cannot guarantee Saturday delivery. Additionally, during peak trading periods, in particular, the Festive Season, orders may take longer to reach their chosen destination.
Please note that any item that is marked for free delivery, including furniture orders, will be shipped on our Standard delivery service. Express Delivery does not apply in this instance. Certain postcodes are deemed to be in “Remote” areas and in this instance, including items marked as “free delivery”, an additional charge may be required. Our Online Services team will contact you if this applies.
