Delivery Information


This page provides delivery information for the UK, and also for our export customers. It explains delivery days, order deadlines and lets you know by what means we deliver to your area.

We deliver using vehicles the size of a double decker bus. If this is going to cause a problem please advise us. We can offer a range of solutions. Please be aware that deliveries using smaller vehicles may incur an additional cost.



For specialist holiday delivery arrangements, including Christmas, New Year and May / August bank holidays visit the holiday delivery arrangements page.
