SHIPPING AND DELIVERY UK AND INTERNATIONAL
DELIVERY TIMES - UNITED KINGDOM
We know how important it is to our customers to receive their orders as quickly as possible. With every order, we make every effort to process your order within two-three working days. This means that, from the date of purchasing, most customers receive their order within 1 to 5 working days. For more information on delivery times, please see the below charts.
For large/bulk purchases of single items, despatch times can range from 1 working day to 14 working days depending on stock availability and quantities purchased. If you require further information on stock values and estimated despatch times for an intended order, please do not hesitate to contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ORDER TRACKING AND DELIVERY REQUIREMENTS
To assist you when it comes to the delivery of your order, all orders are now sent using either a barcoded Royal Mail delivery service or a fully tracked Parcelforce delivery service. If we have a tracking number for your order, this will be provided on your Order Details and emailed over to you using our automated service when your order has been dispatched.
All orders sent with Royal Mail are sent using a barcoded delivery service. This means that Royal Mail will scan your parcel upon delivery, so we receive successful delivery confirmation for our orders.
Should nobody be home at the time of attempted delivery, Royal Mail will endeavour to deliver this to a neighbour if a safe location has not been provided on the order. If they are unable to do this, your parcel will be taken to your local Royal Mail Collection Office and you will be provided with a delivery card through your door advising of the next steps to either collect your parcel or rearrange delivery.
Please note, Royal Mail hold all undelivered parcels for a maximum of 21 days before returning these to us. If your parcel is returned back to us, additional charges to which you are liable for may be incurred. If you are experiencing any problems with your delivery or collecting your order please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to assist.
All orders sent with UK Mail are fully tracked. This means we can track your order from the moment it leaves our warehouse, to the moment it arrives at your door for successful delivery.
Express delivery services often require a signature upon delivery, unless a safe location is provided on your order at the time of purchasing. UK Mail will endeavour to deliver your parcel to your address first, followed by a neighbours address after an unsuccessful attempt at delivery to the intended recipient. If you wish for your order to be “left safe”, please add a note to your order before checking out so we can add this information to the parcel for the courier.
NB: Acceptable safe locations include garages, gated areas, porches, greenhouses, back gardens or similar. Safe locations are adhered to at the delivery drivers discretion – if he/she does not believe a suggested location to be safe this request may be dismissed for the safety and security of the parcel in question.
If UK Mail are unable to successfully deliver your parcel on your scheduled day of delivery, they will take this to your local UK Mail delivery office and you will be provided with a delivery card advising of the next steps required for access to your parcel, allowing you to either collect or rearrange delivery on a date that suits you.
Please note, UK Mail will attempt to deliver your parcel over two consecutive days. If they are unsuccessful on both days, your parcel will be held for 5 working days before being returned to us. Should your item be returned to us, additional charges to which you are liable for may be incurred. If you are experiencing problems with your delivery or collecting your order please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to assist.
