The dispatch time is the number of working days we will take to process your order and send the items to our courier, after receiving your payment. The dispatch time does not include the delivery time - i.e. the number of working days our courier will take to deliver the item to you.
Many of our products are available for same day dispatch (for orders placed by 12:00 midday) unless they are extended dispatch products. Extended dispatch products usually clearly state this in their specification to allow you to plan which delivery method you need for your desired arrival time. Please note that delivery times begin at the point of dispatch, therefore a 5 day dispatch time plus a 5 day delivery method will result in a 10 day arrival time.
If you need an extended dispatch product quicker than the stated dispatch time would allow, give us a call (0800 22 77 77 or 01495 246 628) and we'll see what we can do.
Please note that all deliveries will be a single person, curbside delivery service with drops being made anytime between 8am and 6pm. Due to the equipment our couriers provide their drivers, whilst we will request that you get a call before deliveries are made, we cannot guarantee that this will happen.
The delivery time is the number of working days our courier will take to deliver the item to you.
