Orders placed at the weekends will not be dispatched until the following Monday. It is sometimes the case that if you live in a very remote area, or Northern Ireland, that your parcel may take a day longer to arrive than the timescales we have quoted.
Our delivery service is currently provided by DPD.
Your order should be delivered the next working day after you have recieved your order despatch notification email. We cannot guarantee a specific time for the delivery of your parcel; home deliveries can start as early as 7am and be delivered as late as 7pm between Monday and Friday.

If there is nobody home to receive the parcel, DPD will attempt a second delivery. A card will be left at your home informing you of this. DPD will only attempt a home delivery twice. If you are not available to take delivery on the second occasion your parcel will be returned to us as undelivered.
