We don’t deliver to Post Office (P.O.) boxes or shipping agent addresses.

Delivery will be between the hours of 8 am and 6 pm, we are unable to confirm a time.

The delivery date will be agreed and confirmed with you and a signed acknowledgement of receipt will be required. If a receipt cannot be obtained, a card will be left with a contact number for you to collect the goods from the local courier’s depot or request another delivery date.

The courier will only deliver on Monday-Friday. Therefore if you place an order on a Friday it will not be sent until the next working day i.e. Monday and delivered on the Tuesday. To receive goods for the weekend the very latest order would be before 11am Thursday morning. We will then process the order and send it on a next day delivery so it will arrive on the Friday in time for the weekend. If you do require an order for a specific date either email or call to let us know so we can make sure the order is processed correctly.

Before the dispatch of your goods, you may request special arrangements (example, to leave with a neighbour or other secure location of your choosing) which we will follow, at your risk, as the insurance may become null and void.

The goods will not be held by the local courier for longer than five days, after which, they will be returned to us to await your further instructions. You will be charged the couriers return carriage rates and later re-dispatch costs.
