6.2 All orders received before 2:00pm Monday to Friday will usually be dispatched the same day. Orders received after 2:00pm, at the weekend or on public holidays, will be sent out the next working day. If there is a problem with your order that prevents us from dispatching it, for example it is not currently in stock, we will normally contact you within 24 hours of the order being received by us or on the next working day.
6.3 Deliveries are usually made within 3 to 5 working days of dispatch unless your goods are being sent outside the UK. All goods will be delivered by a recorded delivery through a reputable courier service.

6.4 Please note, any delivery estimates given on the website or by email are estimates only.
