How soon can I expect to receive my order?

We dispatch on Mondays and Thursdays in order to reduce our impact on the environment - by doing this, we reduce the number of miles we travel to deliver our post to Royal Mail by 60%. 

All orders placed between noon on Sunday and noon on Wednesday will be despatched on Thursday.

All orders placed from Wednesday afternoon to Sunday morning will be despatched on Monday.

We will keep you fully up to date with your order's progress by email. 

We offer Free, Economy and Express delivery.

Free Delivery

We currently offer free delivery on all orders of £50 or more - in this case, your order will be sent via Economy methods. Free delivery only ever applies to mainland UK addresses

Economy

Depending on size, some orders are shipped by Royal Mail Second Class post and others by courier. Both methods take between two and five working days after despatch. If you are likely to be out when the delivery arrives, please leave a comment saying where the package can be left on your premises (eg "behind the  garden gate").

Express

Orders up to 2KG in weight are sent by Royal Mail First Class post. Orders over 2KG are sent by next day courier. In both cases, orders should arrive on the day after despatch. Express delivery is ONLY valid for MAINLAND England, Wales and Scotland (excluding Highlands).

 

You can get in touch with us about your order in a number of ways:
