Charges within the UK:
Please note: Free postage is worked out after the discount has been applied if a discount is offered.
Charges outside the UK:
All orders with a shipping address outside the UK, including the Republic of Ireland, are sent via an international postage service. Orders have a postal charge of £3.00 for International Untracked, £6.50 for European Tracked and £9.50 for Rest of the World Tracked. Due to a number of issues that we have experienced with delivery to Italy, we are only able to offer the Tracked option to this country. Unfortunately, the free postage offer is not applicable to non-UK orders.
Dispatch Times – 1st and 2nd Class. We aim to dispatch within 48 hours of receiving your order. (excluding Sat/Sun). For example, if you place your order at 11am on Monday, we aim to dispatch it by Wednesday's post if not before. If placed on Friday, your order should be dispatched by Tuesday at the latest. Please note, if you place your order on Sunday, it will be behind orders placed over Saturday, and therefore we would then aim to dispatch it by Tuesday's post.
Next Working Day delivery is guaranteed before 7pm the day after dispatch. In order for your Next Day order to be dispatched the same day, and therefore be delivered the next working day, your order needs to be placed by 10am *that* day. Please note, Next Day post is only delivered on week days. So if you place your order before 10am on Friday, although it will be dispatched that day, it will not be delivered until Monday.
For an extra charge, we can send your order by Royal Mail Special Delivery or Saturday Guaranteed post. If this is required please call us on 0161 274 4040 to discuss it. All standard 1st class orders over £150 are automatically sent by Courier at no extra charge. If your order is not over £150 but you wish it to be sent by courier, please call us on 0161 274 4040 to discuss costs.
