Why do some items have different delivery times?

Sometimes we have to source products directly from our manufacturers or stores, this can result in longer delivery times.

Can I amend my order?

Yes, if you wish to amend your order please contact us and let us know as soon as possible. Please be aware that changing your order may cause a delay to delivery.

How do I track my order?

You can track your order by logging into your account and clicking on 'order tracking'. In the top right corner you'll see the carrier details, a tracking ID number and a link to the carrier's website. The tracking number you are given may not work until the evening when your parcel is scanned in at the depot.

How do I return or exchange an item?

Why haven't I received an email acknowledging my order?

Firstly, check your email Spam/Junk folder, as your email filter may automatically move suspected spam to this location. Secondly, if you registered online, check that your email address is correct in the my Account section of your account. If you are still unable to locate the email please Contact Us and we will be able to check for you.

Will I be reimbursed for postage costs when returning an item?

You will only be refunded postage costs if the item is incorrect or faulty.

Have I been charged twice?

If you have paid for your order by card, the bank will reserve (pre-authorise) the value against your card and payment will only be taken once your order has been despatched. There may be a delay between the reservation against your card and the payment we take, however you will not be charged twice. If you have paid through Paypal, the payment will be taken from your account when you place your order.

What happens if I'm out and my parcel is delivered?

All deliveries require a signature. If you are out and miss your delivery, the carrier will leave you a card stating whether you need to pick your parcel up from your local post office or whether they will try to deliver it again the next day.

Can you leave my parcel with a neighbour?

Unfortunately, UK Mail won't leave your parcel with a neighbour on the first delivery attempt as they require signature. Further delivery attempts, if authorised, can be left with a neighbour.

Do you price match?

Please refer to our price match promise page for details.
