When will my order be delivered?
If you have selected the standard delivery option, your order should arrive within 5 days. Where delays are likely, we will keep you informed (please provide us with a daytime telephone number and email address). Most orders are despatched within 24 hours of receipt.
What if my order contains items that are out of stock?
When we receive an order, we will immediately despatch all the items that are available from stock. Any remaining items are despatched once they have all arrived in stock. This is to minimise the inconvenience of multiple parcel deliveries and to enable us to offer the facility of taking orders on out of stock items without extra charge. If you require any items on your order more urgently, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 0333 240 0707. NB. From early December we despatch individual items as soon as they arrive into stock to ensure that Christmas gifts are received in good time.
How will my order be delivered?
If you are ordering small items they will arrive by Royal Mail. For larger parcels our carriers, DPD and Yodel, deliver weekdays between 7am and 5pm. If you are not at home, the driver will either put the parcel in a secure place and post a card advising you where they have left it, or leave a card asking you to call the depot to arrange another delivery. If you prefer, we can deliver to your work address or a neighbour if you specify this when you place your order. If you have provided an email address, you will receive an email notification of the approximate delivery time from the carrier.
Can I have next day delivery?
Next Day Delivery is available to UK mainland addresses (excluding Scottish Highlands & Islands) if you place your order before 2pm Monday to Thursday. Orders placed on Friday before 2pm will be delivered the following Monday. Orders placed after 2pm on Friday, or on Saturday or Sunday, will be delivered the following Tuesday. The cost is £5 in addition to the standard charge. A signature is required for receipt. Please note Next Day Delivery is not available for personalised items or items with a postage surcharge.
Why are delivery charges to the Highlands & Islands more expensive than the rest of the UK for orders over 1.8kg?
We use national carriers such as DPD and Yodel for delivering larger parcels (over 1.8kg) to the Highlands & Islands and regrettably they charge more to make these deliveries.
Can my order be sent to a different delivery address?
Yes, if it is more convenient we can deliver to a different address e.g. your workplace. We can deliver to your family and friends anywhere in the world. If you want to send a gift, the delivery note will not contain prices and we can also add your message to the delivery note. The delivery note will show your personal address and the delivery address.
Can I send orders to more than one address?
Yes, but you must place each order separately.
Can my order be sent to an address outside the UK?
Yes, deliveries to Europe usually take 7-14 days. For the rest of the world, please allow up to 21 days. Small items are posted by air with Royal Mail. Parcels are despatched using Parcelforce International or DPD International. The cost of delivery is based on the delivery address and the weight of your parcel. The cost will be calculated when you are in the checkout. Please be aware that a few of our items cannot be despatched overseas due to shipping regulations - you will be notified at check-out if this is the case.

If a product is out of stock online, can I still order it over the phone?
Stock availability is the same whether you order online or by phone. The website will show if a product is in stock or the date that it is expected back in stock. In both these instances orders can be placed online or by phone. If there are delays in the expected arrival date of an out of stock item, you will be notified in advance by email. If a product code does not register in the search box on the website, it means it has been discontinued and is no longer available to order.
Is your payment section secure?
Yes, we can assure you the payment section of our website is secure. All areas of the site containing your personal information are padlocked.
Are my card details secure?
Yes and we’ve added some additional features to protect you from identity fraud. The authorisation process validates the card number, expiry date and your security code and also checks that the card is registered to your address. For this reason we need your credit card billing address exactly as printed on your statement.
We take security very seriously and have been one of the first internet/mail order companies to become PCI DSS Compliant. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is designed to protect consumers and merchants alike from credit card fraud. To become Compliant there are six categories of PCI standards to be met – maintain a secure network; protect cardholder data; maintain a vulnerability management programme; implement strong access control measures; regularly monitor and test networks; maintain an information security policy.
You can shop in confidence using our online payment system. We accept all major credit cards including Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron and Mastercard. Our payments are handled by SagePay, a leading UK PCI DSS compliant payment provider. We do not store your credit card details on our systems.
