Europe & Rest of the World:

If you need an item urgently we can ship to most UK Mainland destinations for arrival the following working day, but you will need to phone your order through to us on 01926-460203 as this service cannot be selected via our website. We will also need to receive your order before 2 pm to ensure it ships that day.
Orders received before 2 pm are usually shipped the same day (Mon-Fri). Orders received later than this will normally be shipped the following working day. We don't ship on Saturdays, Sundays or bank holidays as we are closed on those days.
Please remember that recorded mail is not a guaranteed next working day delivery service - the average delivery time is two to three working days, although items sent in this way can take up to 10 working days to arrive in exceptional cases. Royal Mail will not consider a recorded item lost until 15 working days have elapsed, and we are unable to claim from them for a lost item or send out a replacement until this period has elapsed.
The average delivery time for items posted via International Signed-For is 10 working days within the EU and 15 working days for the rest of the world, but it can take longer if items are subject to additional customs- and/or security checks when they reach the destination country.
Postal deliveries to South America, the Russian Federation & many East European countries invariably take longer, and a delivery time of six weeks or even longer is not unusual.
Royal Mail will not consider an international signed-for item lost until 25 working days have elapsed, and we are unable to claim from them for a lost item or send out a replacement until this period has elapsed.
