UK Shipping

March 2022: We are experiencing very high order rates, we are working hard to process orders in a timely manner, but delays are possible. 

Orders received before noon on working days are shipped the same day (with some exceptions).  Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays are not considered working days.

Your shopping basket automatically calculates the correct shipping charge for your order. 

Orders over the value of £100 (inc VAT) are shipped free of charge within the UK by 1 to 2 working-day tracked service. 

Orders with a value of £100 or below will incur a charge of £5.96 plus VAT for tracked delivery. There is an optional budget rate of £3.84 plus VAT for very light items.

For an additional charge which is calculated according to the weight of the items in your order, you may also select 'Next Working Day' as a shipping option. This is a guaranteed next working-day delivery (UK mainland), however, your order must be completed before 1pm Monday to Friday. Please note that we cannot ship hazardous goods via this service.
