As standard, all items are posted using Royal Mail 1st Class post. If requested we will send items using Royal Mail's Special Delivery service, Next day delivery before noon which needs to be signed for. Please ensure that someone is available to sign for the item during normal business hours. If any special needs are required, please contact us directly. The above posting arrangements are applicable to the mainland UK, Northern Ireland and IOM only. For The Irish Republic and any other destination we generally use Fastway or a similar courier. Outside of UK and Ireland can be priced directly. Any orders received after 4.30pm will automatically be deferred to the next working day with no exceptions.
