Shipping and Delivery Information
Our Standard ‘Flat-rate’ Delivery charge for UK is: £4.99 + vat for 1st Class Parcel Post.
We are unable to offer a specific NEXT DAY DELIVERY option as we cannot realistically guarantee such a service, especially in the current climate.
Special-Delivery (small parcels) and UK Courier (larger/heavier parcels) provide a next day delivery from dispatch, not from the date of order.
If you require a tracked / recorded delivery, please select either the Express Delivery or Courier Delivery option at checkout.
Please see ‘Shipment of UK Orders‘ below for further details.
Shipment of UK Orders
We dispatch Standard Postal and Special Delivery orders on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We are unable to dispatch any small ‘postal’ web orders on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays.
There is an order cut-off point for the same-day dispatch of UK Postal Deliveries of 2:00 pm on both Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Larger orders and orders placed after this cut-off time, will be sent on the next postal dispatch day.
If you need to place a late order for dispatch after 2:00 pm, please call to confirm if this is possible before placing your order as we cannot commit to customer-imposed deadlines.
Heavier or larger orders requiring a courier delivery are usually dispatched within 2 working days of receipt on either a Wednesday or a Friday on a Next-Day delivery service.
Orders actually placed on a Wednesday or Friday will be shipped the next ‘courier dispatch day’ (ie: the following Wednesday or Friday respectively from the day of order). We are unable to offer a same day courier shipment.
Most web orders are dispatched within 1-3 days following the date of order. During periods of heavy demand, deliveries may take a little longer.
As an Internet based manufacturer / supplier, we do not have a customer collection point and will only dispatch orders via post or courier on the specified dispatch days.
We regret customer orders are not available for collection in person.
As of July 1st 2021 there are new EU rules on how VAT is charged for online / web orders. As a result, orders originating from any EU country below a net value of 150 Euros / £135 will now have VAT added at the prevailing rate of that country.
We have therefore decided to introduce a ‘temporary’ £136 Minimum Order Value for EU B2C orders.
Please Note: Whilst we will not add VAT to your order, VAT and Customs charges will be payable once the goods have arrived in your country.
EU Businesses with a verifiable EORI number will not be affected by this change and may contact us directly if they need to place an order below £136 net.
We will only ship EU and International orders at the Buyers risk. Once the goods are handed over to the courier they become the buyers property and responsibility.
