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 3-5 working 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 email@example.com or by calling 0333 240 6178. Please note that from early December we dispatch individual items as soon as they arrive into stock to ensure that you receive Christmas gifts in good time. We will notify you by email if there is a delay on any item.
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. This service includes a 2-man delivery to a room of your choice. The delivery company will contact you in advance to arrange delivery.
Next Working Day Delivery
The cost of next working day delivery is £9.99.
This service is only available to UK mainland addresses - excluding Scottish Highlands and some AB, PA and PH postcodes.
Place your order before 2pm Monday - Friday and receive your order the next working day. Orders placed on Friday before 2pm will be delivered the following Monday.
Items with a postage surcharge, which are sent direct from our supplier, cannot be sent by next working day delivery.
Any item that is out of stock at the time of sending the next working day delivery order will follow, once back in stock.
Please note that next working day delivery does not include deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
