Shipping policy

We offer a wide range of delivery options to suit your purchasing needs. Our comprehensive range of options are presented to you at the checkout, in an easy to understand way.

Most orders placed before 14:00 are shipped from our warehouse the same day (Monday to Friday, except bank holidays), subject to stock availability and security checks. Please ensure you provide a valid phone number for us to contact you should verification of your identity be required.

We understand that shipping costs are part of doing business, however, we know you want to make sure you are getting good value, so:

  • We aim to make our postage and packing costs fair and easy to understand.
  • Know that our shipping charges are based on the costs incurred to us - we do not profit from our delivery charges.
  • All our orders are shipped via Royal Mail or DHL using tracked or signed services for your piece of mind.

If you require shipping to a worldwide destination not displayed or would like a quote for an order that exceeds 30kg total weight, please get in touch via our Contact Us page and we will be happy to quote you.

The IOSS program is applicable to VAT charges only, it does not apply to applicable import duty charges.

Our products (valued up to £135/€150), at this time, are free from import duties, so the price you are charged at the checkout will be the price you pay. Applicable countries to the IOSS scheme are:
