We deliver all over the UK and to many countries worldwide. Please read on for more information.
Deliveries using Royal Mail are experiencing delays in certain parts of the country due to self-isolation and safety measures.
We are experiencing some delays which have been caused by a slowdown in manufacture due to Covid-related staff shortages and lockdowns combined with a worldwide shortage of shipping containers. 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.
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 despatched 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 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 despatch 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 all of your items are on pre-order your order will be despatched in one parcel once the final product has arrived. Full payment has been taken with your order. 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.
Heavy items & Furniture Delivery
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.
For larger items, delivery companies will only deliver to the doorstep of the ground floor and cannot allow their team members to enter a customer’s premises as their insurance does not cover this.
A delivery surcharge of £35 has been included in the price of heavy furniture for 2-man delivery. This will be indicated on the product in the delivery tab. The delivery company will contact you in advance to arrange delivery. Your order will be delivered safe and contactless to either your doorstep or a selected room of your choice.
