We’re despatching parcels as normal, with all our usual delivery options but some parcels are taking longer than usual to be delivered. Royal Mail deliveries are worst affected, especially for 2nd class and airmail. Next day delivery services (with the exception of Royal Mail Special Delivery) are not guaranteed next day and occasionally delays have been occurring. We always recommend using courier delivery, (DHL, DPD or Parcelforce) or Royal Mail Special Delivery for the most reliable and prompt delivery service.
Last Posting Dates for Christmas
● Delivery times are not guaranteed so shop early if you can.
● Please do not choose Royal Mail second class or airmail even if you order in plenty of time for Christmas. Their service is unreliable and slow especially approaching Christmas.
● Royal Mail Special Delivery guarantees next day delivery but no other service does - please bear this in mind.
● Royal Mail Special Delivery is guaranteed next day but Royal Mail stop work at noon on the 24th so your parcel may not be delivered in time if you order on the 23rd.
● For International customers, we always recommend DHL Express as the fastest and most reliable service.

Acceptance of Parcels

If your parcel is delivered to BFPO, a block of flats, a university halls of residence, a house of multiple occupancy or a place of work it will be up to you to recover the parcel from whoever accepted it.
All deliveries must be accepted upon presentation by our delivery agents, even if you no longer want the products.
