We aim to deliver within 5-7 working days. If you are ordering a personalised or engraved item, please allow an additional 7-10 days for delivery. Should we be unable to deliver within this time period, we will advise you accordingly and you'll be within your rights, after receiving such an advice, to cancel your order.
If you need your order to be delivered by a certain date, please make this clear on your order form or contact us by email email@example.com or telephone 01786 842620 and we will try our best to accommodate you.
We will deliver to the address specified by you at the point of order. This can either be your own address or a nominated address given by you.
All our deliveries must be signed for at the delivery address. In case of an unsuccessful delivery by our courier or First Class Recorded Post a note will be left at the delivery address informing you of the event. Those items can usually be collected at your local sorting or post office. Collection is entirely your responsibility. Regretfully, should your order remain unclaimed and consequently returned to our premises, we will be unable to release the goods until you have paid for postage costs back to the designated delivery address.
In most cases the postage and packaging charges are calculated by weight. For items weighing less than 1kg you will be given the option of having your order delivered 2nd class, otherwise all Royal Mail deliveries are first class. These are charged at cost based on Post Office guidelines. All delivery charges are calculated during the checkout process.
These prices are for UK mainland deliveries only using recorded mail service. For special delivery prices or non UK mainland delivery addresses please contact our customer care team on 01786 842620 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for current charges.
The postage and packaging charges are calculated by weight. These are charged at cost based on Post Office delivery guidelines. Please contact by phone or email to place your order, and we can advise on delivery costs to your country.
