Next day delivery is available on items in stock and if ordered before 11am. Next working day delivery is possible (Monday to Friday only) if these conditions apply and costs £8.95 regardless of the value of your order. Please note that orders which arrive with us after 11am on Friday (i.e. on Friday afternoon, Saturday or Sunday) will be dispatched by us on the next working day which is Monday.
If you live in an area of the UK where Royal Mail does not operate a next day delivery service then please note that we will not be able to provide you with next day delivery and we will assume you are aware of these limitations before placing your order.
Please note that Next Day Delivery may not be possible for larger items, eg furniture and mattresses. If you need next day delivery for these items, please call 0117 924 5080 so that we can check with the supplier.
We will provide you with a tracking number to enable you to trace your package. If your item is mislaid by Royal Mail or Business Post we will send a replacement once we have satisfied their investigations.
In some circumstances we are able to deliver on Saturdays but this will be by request only and largely dependent on the size and weight of your items. The cost for this is £10.95. Please contact us on 0117 924 5080 if you would like to discuss this option.
