What if I'm not home when it's delivered?

If a Royal Mail shipment cannot be delivered, a card will be left and they will attempt re-delivery. If delivery is still unsuccessful, a card will be left and the parcel returned to the nearest post office, from here collection or re-delivery can be arranged.

Can I change the delivery address?

We do provide the option to ship to an address different to the billing address for orders placed online. However, for security reasons, this service is discretionary. We reserve the right to only ship to the billing address, or to verify details with our customers before shipping to a different address.

If you have made a mistake with your delivery details please contact us immediately and we will try to amend them.

Orders placed over the telephone must be shipped to the billing address.

If the order has already left our warehouse, then the delivery address cannot be changed.

Do you deliver to my country?

We deliver to almost all countries worldwide.

Do I have to pay customs & import charges if I live outside of the EU?

Customs and import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.

Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost might be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. It's a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are aware of the charges you may face.

The customer must take full liability for any parcels returned to us due to unpaid customs charges. Postal charges, return shipment costs, customs charges and handling fees will all be deductible from any refund due.

The customs department of my country have asked me for further information. What should I do?

Each country has its own unique import procedures, which are subject to change. If you have an order held in customs then please contact our customer service team with your order number and tracking number, via email, We will do our very best to help resolve the matter as swiftly as possible.
