We strive to offer reliable postage at a fair price. How long your order takes to arrive depends on the type of service you select. We use both Royal Mail and Fedex to dispatch our parcels but please note that we cannot accept responsibility for failed deliveries if no one is at home to receive them. If you are unable to accept a delivery, please be aware that it may be returned to the depot and a card left. Unless you have requested Guaranteed Next day delivery, your item should arrive between 1-5 working days depending on the service requested. If your parcel has a tracking number, you will be able to access the Royal Mail Track and Trace service to monitor the progress of your parcel.
