We aim to dispatch all orders within one working day of receipt of payment. Orders within the UK are sent by Royal Mail (smaller items) or Interlink couriers (large or heavy items). Items usually take 2-3 working days to be delivered.

If you have a safe place to leave the parcel (for example a porch, shed or with a neighbour), please include this in the comments when placing your order.

Orders outside the UK are sent by Royal Mail tracked or signed post. Some of our larger items may be too large for standard post, in this case you will need to contact us first giving your full address and postcode so we can calculate the item's shipping cost.

Please see the below table for expected delivery days within the UK, when ordering on a particular day. This is only a rough guide and we do try to turn orders around quicker than this where possible - however we will always send an email once we've packed your order and it's ready to send, just so you know it's on its way to you.

*In most cases Royal Mail will deliver on Saturdays when they can, however sometimes they like to hold on to parcels for a bit longer. Also if it's a large item delivered by Interlink Express couriers they can only deliver Monday-Friday.
