Same Day Dispatch
If you place an order before 3:00pm on a standard UK working day we will look to dispatch the same day.
The only times this would not apply is if the goods are not in stock or the order weighs over 100KG. If the order is over 100KG we class it as a heavy order and we need your order by 1:00pm to offer same day dispatch.
If the goods are not in stock we will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible to discuss a dispatch date.
Due to the low cost of a lot of our goods we are not able to ‘hide’ the cost of delivery in the price of an item. However we aim to charge delivery at a sensible price that reflects what it costs us to send an order.
If you do not live in an area our couriers consider to be the UK mainland and your order does not include any materials it will cost £3.95 (£4.74 including VAT) if you spend less than £40 (£48 including VAT).
Delivery is free on orders to the UK mainland if they are £40 or more (£48 including VAT), unless it contains large materials in which case a delivery charge applies.
If your order is over £50 in value or more than 1kg in weight and shipping to the UK, then it must be sent by courier service and may be as soon as the next working day (signature required. Note: Some remote areas take longer). Otherwise it will be sent by first class mail. All online orders over £20 will be sent via Royal Mail 1st Class Signed For at no additional cost.
If you are ordering in the UK and you know you're not going to be in to sign for your goods you can have it delivered to an address of your choice. Simply specify a different address during the checkout process.
You can see more details of charges in the table below.
