Leave Safe Deliveries


We know that sometimes waiting in all day for a delivery can be inconvenient. When placing your order we’ll ask for some Delivery Instructions where you can tell us where to leave your parcel if you’re not around. This could be anywhere such as in a shed, porch or with a neighbour.

Leave Safe Deliveries aren't always guaranteed so the courier may take it back to the depot where you can easily rearrange delivery with the courier directly on a day that suits you better.


Direct and Heavy Item Deliveries


A small number of products will be marked with Delivered in ‘X’ Days. These products are usually higher value or built to order so we ship them directly from the manufacturer at a cost of £5.99. Some heavy items may incur additional delivery charges. Where this is applicable, we’ll display this information at the checkout.

We don’t provide tracking on these orders in the usual way so if you haven’t received your order in the advertised window please contact our Customer Service team on 0845 689 6000.


Mixed Delivery Options


We ship items from our own warehouse and directly from third parties and manufacturers.

If your order consists of a mixture of these items, individual products may be sent out at different times to ensure you get your items as soon as possible. Don’t worry though; this service is at no extra cost to you.
