UK Delivery

All our parcels are sent via either Royal Mail or Parcel Force. We do not use any other service. Our contract delivery days are Monday to Friday. Saturday delivery is possible but with a surcharge. See details below.

In the UK  our shipping charges are based on the total value of the goods being sent, not by weight. This ensures that all deliveries are covered by suitable insurance. We have contract rates that certainly for the bigger weight/value orders are significantly lower than the standard post office rates.

Priority orders

These are shipped by the 24hr Parcel Force service, tracked and signed for . The fee is fixed for all weights up 29 kilos. It is not in addition to the standard charge. The rates we offer on this are lower than the normal price you would get from Parcelforce as we have contract rates with them. 

In order to qualify for this service your order must reach reach us by 11am and the approriate service charge be paid. If for any reason we don't have part of your order in stock we will always try to get in touch with you to check how you would like to proceed.

Priority orders may be delivered between 8am and 6pm the following day. A signature is required.

Please note that no carrier will give an absoloute guarantee of delivery by a given time as things can go wrong in the delivery process. Therefore, we will not accept any liability resulting  from late delivery by the appointed carrier.

Saturday delivery

Delivery on Saturday is possible but carries an additional surcharge from our contractor of £12 in addition to the normal 24 Hour priority service rate. The  order must be made before 11am Friday.

Export carriage charges to rest of the world

To find the cost of sending your order 

Please complete the order through the shopping cart and fill in your address details the cart will then calculate the cost of the order, with details of the shipping costs.

Carriage charges are calculated automatically through our shopping cart or you may request details by email to overseas destinations. From the UK we have two systems. Below 2 kilos it is a Royal Mail Signed for Service which is trackable. Above 2 kilos it becomes Parcelforce trackable which is more expensive, if you look at our carriage costs you will see a big change between the cost of up to 2 kilos and then over 2 kilos. Sorry for this but it is how it works in the UK. Have a look at the Royal Mail and Parcelforce web sites for details on the costs.

Carriage charges for European Destinations; these are calculated in 200 gm steps up to 1.8 kilos and then have a single price for all weights upwards to 29 kilos. This system gives very good value for orders that are over 5 kilos. The carriage charge is worked out by the shopping cart when completing your purchase.
