Delivery & Shipping Information

The same-day dispatch cut-off for UPS is usually 11am while for Royal Mail it is usually 3pm, Monday to Friday. Same-day dispatch when an order is received before these times is typical but not guaranteed. Please contact us in advance if your order is urgent and you need to use a timed delivery service. 


Delivery prices are calculated within the online shopping basket and are based on a combination of the total size, weight and value of the items in the order, including some allowance for the mass of packaging. To see which options are available add the items you wish to buy to the basket and press the 'Select Delivery Method' button, then select your shipping country and a list of available delivery options will be shown (be aware that for some order weight/size combinations there may not be an option offered, if this is the case please contact us with your order and delivery address details to arrange a customised solution). We reserve the right to use a different carrier to that requested but only if the alternative method is at least as fast (usually faster) and includes the same insurance cover.

Please pay attention to any status messages on the website which will notify you if there are delays to order processing. When your order is dispatched we will send a notification email, which will include a tracking number if one is available for your selected service.

In the rare case that a parcel is lost in transit we will work with the delivery company to track it down and if it still cannot be found we will claim for the loss. It is strongly recommended that for higher-value orders you select a method which is fully tracked, such as UPS (Next-day and International) or International Parcel, this will mean you can closely follow any delays and will make it much less likely for the parcel to be lost. Royal Mail International Track & Sign is unfortunately not a fully tracked service, despite the name, and only provides a rough overview of transit events.
