Allow approximately 5 - 15 working days to receive your package, depending on customs this could take longer. Most of our packages will need a signature upon delivery. Note that depending on your country your package may need to go through customs and as such this may cause delays, this is beyond our control. As mentioned above EU customers from January 2021 you might need to pay import duties and/or VAT and a handling fee when importing certain goods from the UK.
International EU / Global Customers: Please note that there are postal delays in many countries due to ongoing Covid restrictions, reduced air and freight capacity, high volumes and weather conditions are all impacting transportation and local delivery across the globe, as such we cannot guarantee when you will receive your order. We recommend you check the Royal Mail website for international updates/incidents for your country. Your package may be passed on to an internal postal service, according to standard delivery procedures. We are also seeing many delays at customs.
Customs and Duty Payments: Products delivered to some destinations may be subject to taxes, fees, levies or other charges, which are imposed by local legislation - we have no control over these. Any customs, import duties and/or taxes are charged once the order reaches its destination country and must be paid by the recipient of the order. Customs policies vary widely from country to country and as we have no control over these charges, we take no responsibility for them and cannot estimate what they may be.
Can you dispatch orders on the same day?
Yes, although we cant promise. Orders placed before Midday have the highest chance of us shipping on the same day, but it isn't guaranteed. As above all orders are generally dispatched within 1 - 3 working days, unless stated otherwise. Currently we are unable to offer same day dispatch.

UK customers - Usually the next working day
