We deliver all over the UK and to most countries worldwide. Please read on for more information.
Due to unprecedented levels of demand, we apologise that orders are currently taking longer than usual to despatch and will arrive within 5-7 days. We are also experiencing unusually high numbers of sold out items as a result.
The health of both our customers and team remains our highest priority at this time. Our warehouse is following strict social distancing protocols in order to despatch orders reliably and safely during the coronavirus outbreak. Delivery companies continue to follow procedures for safe handling of mail and parcels and are now taking around 4 days to deliver rather than 48 hours.
Covid-19 has inevitably caused some problems with manufacture and shipping worldwide and we apologise in advance if the item you would like to order is not available from stock. We are accepting Pre-orders on all items that we expect to receive on the date provided on the website. If those dates are extended by more than a week, we will notify you by email so that you can decide whether to continue to wait. Please note that if an item is showing as out of stock at this time it is unlikely to return to stock before Christmas.
Thank you for your continued patience and support.
Order in time for Christmas
Midnight 20 December using standard delivery. 2pm 22 December using next working day delivery.
Delivery company ‘failed delivery’ email Scam
None of our delivery companies will ever ask you for any payment for redelivery of a parcel. If you are in doubt, please contact us.
As a small business, we have elected to be transparent and charge for delivery and returns rather than adding these costs to our prices. Our delivery charges do not make money, and include the cost of packaging required to get your items to you safely. Wherever possible we avoid the use of plastic, but occasionally there is no sensible alternative.
We aim to use the most effective delivery service for the types of items we sell, and will choose your carrier based on the weight, size and fragility of the items you order.
Our delivery charges apply per order, with the exception of a modest surcharge for a 2-man delivery service for large items of furniture which are dispatched separately
The cost of UK standard delivery is £4.99.
This includes delivery to the Highlands and Islands, Channel Islands and BFPOs.
Your order should arrive within 5-7 days.
For most orders we use Royal Mail or DPD, you will receive tracking information after your order has been despatched.
If you have a delivery deadline, we would recommend using our next working day delivery option. However, please note that next working day delivery is not available some heavy/larger items and furniture. This will be indicated in the delivery information on the product page.
If you are not at home, the driver will either put the parcel in a secure place and post a card advising you where they have left it, or leave a card asking you to call the depot to arrange another delivery. If you prefer, we can deliver to your work address or a neighbour, please specify a different delivery address at checkout.

Delivery to a different address/gift recipient
If it is more convenient for you, we can deliver to a different address than your own, for example your place of work.
The delivery note will not show prices and we can also add your personal message for a gift.
We will send an order confirmation to your email address.
Delivery to multiple addresses
If you would like to have items sent to different addresses, please complete a separate order for each address. A separate delivery charge will be applied to each address.
Orders which contain items temporarily out of stock
When we receive an order, we will immediately dispatch all the items that are available from stock. In the unlikely event of one or more items being out of stock, we will forward these on together as soon as they have all come back into stock. This minimises the impact on the environment and the inconvenience of multiple parcel deliveries, and also enables us to take pre-orders on out of stock items without extra charge. If you require any items on your order more urgently, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 0333 240 6178.
Some heavy/larger items and furniture can take 2-4 weeks for delivery. Some of these can only be delivered to UK mainland addresses. This will be indicated in the delivery information on the product page.
Next working day delivery is not available on these items.
A delivery surcharge of £35 will be applied to orders for heavy furniture. Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions this 2-man delivery company can’t allow its team to enter a customer’s premises. They will only deliver to the door step or into the hallway and they are not able to remove packaging. Our apologies for the inconvenience this may cause. The delivery company will contact you in advance to arrange delivery
