How Much Does it Cost?

Delivery cost depends on the size and weight of the item that you are buying. Most have free Standard Delivery. The exact cost for each item is shown on the product page or in the shopping basket. Next Working Day delivery can be calculated in the shopping basket.

What if I'm not in when you deliver?

Deliveries are made Monday to Friday (unless otherwise stated) between 8am and 6pm. We realise that from time to time our courier may try to deliver an order and you (or the intended recipient) may not be available. Each time an attempt is made, our courier will leave a card at the delivery address confirming that they have attempted delivery. This card contains a contact number so you can speak directly to the couriers and agree a mutually convenient delivery time or alternatively, to arrange for you to collect the order directly from their depot.

Can I send things to more than one address?

We are happy to deliver all or part of your order to addresses other than your own. You'll have the option to tell us where you want to send the items in your basket during the checkout process.

What do I do if there is a problem?

First of all, and we cannot emphasise this enough, our couriers operate right up until 6pm every day. In the event that there is a problem the best course of action is to contact us.

What if the delivery looks damaged?

We need to know as quickly as possible if there is a problem with your delivery. If the delivery looks obviously damaged please refuse the delivery. If it has been left, or posted, then please retain all the delivery packaging and contact us. Before returning anything to us you need to contact us and get a Returns Number. See the section covering Returns for full details.
