Delivery charges

DPD PredictWe send all orders via DPD couriers using their Predict service.

We will normally send you a notification email when your order leaves our warehouse. The progress of courier deliveries in the UK can be tracked online and we will send you a tracking link in the confirmation email.

In most cases DPD will provide parcel recipients with a one hour delivery window, notified by SMS or email, so you don't have to wait in all day.

What's more, it enables receivers to watch the progress of their delivery on a real-time map, and (where supported) all the way down to a final 15 minute timeslot.


Our courier service requires that orders be signed for on delivery. As noted on the checkout page, please choose a delivery address where someone will be present to accept delivery and sign for it.

Our courier will try to complete delivery to you but if they find no-one in and you don't contact them to arrange re-delivery they may then return the order to us, so delaying its eventual delivery to you. Where possible we try to prevent this happening but the best way is to ensure someone will be present when the order is delivered.

Collection instructions: when your parcel is delivered and ready for collection, DPD will send you a Pickup pass via email or text. You'll need to bring this DPD Pickup Pass and a photo ID (Driving license or passport) with you to collect your parcel.

You can show the pass on your phone or tablet, or you can print it out from the Print Pickup Pass link.

If you cannot show the pass, then please take two forms of ID with you, one must be a photo ID and the other a utility bill. On delivery to the store, parcels must be collected within 7 days, to avoid return to sender

For deliveries to the UK mainland (excluding the Scottish Highlands) the courier will normally deliver 2 business-days after your order leaves our warehouse. Deliveries elsewhere will take a little longer.

* If your delivery is to the Scottish Highlands please select United Kingdom (Scottish Highlands) from the drop down menu on the basket page and when entering addresses. Your delivery charges will then be calculated correctly.

Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.

Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from us, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods.

Packaging & Warehousing

Our aim is to ensure that your goods reach you in good condition but we are certainly not over-zealous with our packaging! In fact we try to keep this to a minimum.

In fact the warehouse guys have been well ahead of their game in a number of ways, not just the packaging. Fitted temperature monitors in the warehouse check the warehouse temperature every 15 minutes so we are not heating too much and making the guys sweat! In the afternoon when it gets a bit warmer, fans in the ceiling push down the hot air, which again saves on turning up the heat.

Recycling our old boxes

Where-ever possible we re-use the boxes our stock gets delviered in and some ordes get sent out in new boxes or re-enforced envelopes made from recycled paper.

And of course we encourage you to recycle the boxes and filler that we send your order in.

Biodegradable packaging

To pad the boxes out to ensure your products do not get damaged during delivery we use a mix of crumpled re-cycled paper and biodegradable, loose-fill packaging pellets. These water-soluble pellets are made from natural materials and will dissolve in water. Try it!

Although they may look like traditional packaging materials they will decompose and biodegrade naturally without any nasty side-effects. You can compost them, dissolve them in water or – of course – re-use them!
