Delivery will normally be by Royal Mail Signed-For service, and you will be charged for post and packaging. The details you provide on the order will be used for the delivery labels so please ensure they are correct. All items must be signed for upon delivery, if you are not available, however, a card will be posted through your door and the parcel must be collected from your local Royal Mail delivery office within 7 working days. In the event that either of the above are not carried out by the customer the parcel will be returned to our offices and an additional postage supplement will be charged to the customer at our standard postage rates.

You must check your delivery carefully against the delivery note, and notify us within 2 days of any missing items.

Collections are not possible as our insurance does not cover visitors/customers to site.
