Shipping and Returns

Orders over £75 are eligible for free delivery with the United Kingdom.  

For orders less than £75 we offer delivery with Royal Mail or Hermes.  Choose 1st or 2nd class with Royal Mail or for extra security add signature confirmation.  We also offer delivery through Hermes with or without a signature.

Should you be charged more for postage during checkout than we end up paying, any significant difference will be refunded.

Orders are usually dispatched within a couple of hours of being received.

Although we offer delivery services with Hermes, past experience has shown their standard of service can be unreliable.  The after sales service is also poor.  For this reason our preferred carrier is Royal Mail.  We appreciate Hermes may be cheaper for larger or heavier parcels.

Prices on our website are for delivery within mainland UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Northern Ireland only.

Prices for delivery outside of these areas will appear during checkout.

Hermes

Royal Mail offer a competitively priced 'economy delivery' service for 'small parcels' to certain countries.  Delivery times are considerably longer than the 'standard service'.  If  you're not in a hurry and are looking to save on postage, this service is worth considering.  Further details are available on Royal Mail's price finder tool.

Even though an item you have purchased may be small, it will usually still have to be sent as a 'small parcel' as opposed to a 'large letter'.  With Royal Mail to be sent as a 'large letter' the thickness of the package must not exceed 2.5 centimetres.  A padded envelope with contents inside that are well wrapped will usually exceed this width.

Should it be possible to send your order as a 'large letter' instead of a 'small parcel' we will refund the difference in postage.

Classes of Service and Prices

During checkout we offer seven standards of service.  If you choose Royal Mail Standard 1st or 2nd Class we have no means of tracking your order should it be delayed or become lost.

Should it become lost we will submit a claim to Royal Mail. This can only be done ten days after the parcel was posted.

Due to the difficulties with making a claim for loss through Hermes, you will be responsible for making any such claim.
