Shipping Parameters
If the contents of your basket, combined with your delivery destination, result in our website not being able to generate a shipping price automatically, then an appropriate message will appear.
Please email details of your basket for us to quote you for shipping

UK Carriers
We use DPD and DHL for our Trackable Courier/Express Deliveries
We use Tuffnells for our heavy / hazardous parcels - these deliveries are trackable but the details are not automatically available - Our despatch team are happy to work closely with you to ensure delivery at a convenient time.
Carrier deliveries require a signature unless you tick the appropriate box in checkout indicating that it is safe to leave the parcel.
Please give instructions for the delivery driver on where it is safe to leave the parcel but please restrict them to one short sentence if possible.
Please note that if you are in a surcharged delivery area then you may enter a separate delivery address e.g. at work which may not be surcharged.
This is also a good idea for valuable parcels requiring a signature.
If you are in doubt about any aspect of our delivery system please contact us - we are here to help.
