Delivery

Overview

We have no minimum order quantity but please view our Terms & Conditions before making a purchase.

Delivery prices exclude VAT. Some prices are stated as ‘from’ as due to the nature of our products, surcharges may apply, as outlined here.

Delivery excludes Saturdays, Sundays, bank holidays (unless otherwise stated) and conditions outside of our control such as staff strikes, extreme weather conditions, road works etc.

Collections: If you’re local and wish to collect your order, choose “Collection” at the checkout. But please wait for us to contact you to confirm when it’s ready and when to collect. This is so we can ensure your order is ready before you travel to us.

When will I receive my order?

Please allow 3 – 5 working days for our Standard, Small, 1 Metre and Large delivery services.

Next Working Day delivery is available for orders placed before 1PM to Mainland UK. Orders placed after will be processed the next working day. Delivery is 99% guaranteed and excludes Saturdays, Sundays, and bank holidays.

Overseas deliveries will take an estimated 3 – 10 working days. Please allow extra time for Customs procedures.

Peak periods (seasonal or public holidays and popular online shopping events) may slightly affect delivery timeframes. If destined overseas, Customs regulations and international bank holidays may cause delays.

Please notify us ASAP if your delivery greatly exceeds its estimated timeframe, especially if using our Next Working Day service. New European Customs procedures are affecting some deliveries and causing delays.
