Any order received after 13:20 may not be prepared in time for that days’ collection and therefore will go out with the following collection.

The time for delivery varies from location to location and is dependent on the courier used.

General Information

Our website is linked to our shop stock control system. This allows us to display accurate stock availability on our product screens. Although we pride ourselves in keeping these Although we pride ourselves in keeping these records accurate, from time to time due to theft in-store or damaged items or human error, on very rare occasions our records could be wrong. If any item is found to be out of stock we will contact you at the soonest possible time to let you know and discuss the best way forward.

Whilst we are happy to apply any specific delivery instructions and or safe place information to your parcel, this does not guarantee that the delivery driver will follow these notes. Whilst most couriers will follow the information (as it makes life easier for them), it is worth noting that the driver is only officially contracted to deliver, or attempt to deliver, to the address on the shipping label.

We reserve the right to amend the type of delivery service used. On occasions, the packing materials or the packed parcel size necessitate a particular type of despatch best suited to the items. We try our best to ensure any such changes do not affect the orders expected arrival time. In most cases, these changes result in a parcel leaving by a quicker delivery method.

Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
