We use Royal Mail, Parcelforce, DPD and DHL. We offer delivery choices for shipping speed and location. Due to the large amount of orders we send out daily, your parcel may arrive via any of our carriers.
Standard Delivery: Orders under £25 are subject to a standard P&P charge of £2 to £3 depending on the items purchased. Orders over £25 are delivered free of charge.
Premium Delivery: We also offer a 1st class and express courier tracked delivery service which you can select at checkout.
Our courier partners are generally DPD, Parcelforce and Royal Mail. For courier delivered orders, you will be notified by email or text message with tracking information, delivery date and time slots once your item(s) have left the warehouse. Deliveries outside of mainland UK may take longer to arrive.
