Saturday delivery can be arranged for the majority of UK mainland locations. If this option is available for your location it can be selected at the checkout - an additional charge is applied.
If your order is sent by courier, the courier company will attempt delivery twice. Then, after five days, if you have not contacted them the goods will be returned to us.
Items delivered via Courier require a signature on delivery. The driver will deliver to a neighbour if they have your permission but will not "leave in green bin" or "behind the shed".
Please note we do not deliver to freight forwarding companies.
