We send your parcels out every day.

For packages that will go as a Large Letter, we use Royal Mail 1st Class post.

For parcels up to 2Kg, we use Royal Mail Parcels. The parcels usually take two to three working days. These parcels are not tracked. If you wish to pay the extra for a tracked Royal Mail service, please email or ring to arrange this.

For parcels over 2Kg in weight, we use myHermes.

The myHermes service is tracked - an email will be sent to you automatically with a tracking link. The service takes three to five working days.

If you need your items more urgently, ring us on the phone number at the top and we can see if a different, faster service might be better for you.

For very large and heavy orders (over 15KG) we use APC Overnight.

We have a flat-rate charge of £3.00 for postage and packing. However, if your order comes to more than £30.00, we ship it for free within the UK.

If you have asked for an expedited service in order to get your items more quickly, we ask you to pay the difference between the regular shipping cost and the actual cost of the expedited service.

This applies to the UK - for orders sent to elsewhere in the world, look here.
