PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ OUR LIST OF SHIPPING METHODS BELOW SO YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT ONE FOR YOU
Royal Mail First Class
Advantages Disadvantages
Orders weighing up to 1.5kg gross are shipped by this method free of charge This is not a guaranteed next day service and can take 1-4 working days.
This service does not require a signature on arrival.

 

Royal Mail Track And Trace (RTT )

Advantages Disadvantages
This is a "guaranteed" next day service. If Royal Mail fails to deliver we will reimburse the cost of the postage.  This service does not require a signature. Delivery from 8am to 6pm. Delivery charge dependant on weight if under 2kg.

All frozen products MUST go on a next day service to ensure products arrive frozen. However if the weight is under 650g they will be sent at customers OWN RISK  and no refunds or replacements can be issued.

 

Courier

Advantages Disadvantages
Orders weighing over 1.6kg kilo gross are shipped by overnight courier free of charge. Signature required, however customers may request consignments to be left in a secure place at their own risk.
This is a "guaranteed" next day delivery service (usually between 9am and 5pm but could be between 8am to 7pm).  

 The same dispatch times apply to courier as Royal Mail. There is no courier service available on a Friday for Saturday delivery.

There are certain areas of the UK where the courier does not deliver  ie., Channel Islands, Northern Ireland and certain areas of the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. All orders for these areas must go on Royal Mail.

We DO NOT dispatch outside the UK.

"Guaranteed" does not always mean guaranteed! Royal Mail and Courier vehicles encounter the same traffic problems as the rest of us. However the “guaranteed” service usually performs better than other services.
