Direct Drop Ship Delivery Service

Pains Wessex flares are in stock and shipped direct from the Pains Wessex UK Distributor to your door.

Flares can only be delivered by strictly regulated, licensed couriers.

Delivery is only available to UK mainland post code addresses.

Unfortunately, the strict rules and regulations regarding the transportation of pyrotechnics mean that flares carriage is expensive.

The Direct Drop Ship aspect of the service, together with the regulations, means that there could be a day or two delay in despatch.

Please try to plan your flares requirements in good time to avoid disappointment.

Storage Requirements
