For remote locations such as Scottish Isles and Outer Scottish Regions delivery may take 2 to 3 days. A signature is required on delivery from someone at the specified address. All items must be checked for damage before signing for the goods. If you are unavailable on the scheduled delivery date, the courier should leave a calling card and take the parcel back to your local depot. The delivery should then be automatically attempted the next day. If delivery is still unsuccessful then your parcel will be held until you contact the courier to rearrange the delivery on a more convenient day. If there’s no one available to take delivery at the address specified you can collect the parcel from your local depot, with 2 forms of identification. If delivery has been unsuccessful after approximately 5 days and the courier has been unable to contact you, the parcel will be returned to us.

Tracking your order: You can track the status of your order whilst in transit at the respective websites which will be provided to you upon despatch of your order. Royal Mail Deliveries - Recorded delivery is only tracked at the point of delivery. In the event of non-delivery Royal Mail investigations are only initiated after two weeks have elapsed from the date of posting. For this reason we are unable to offer advanced replacements on any items lost in transit using this service.

Missing, Damaged or Incorrect orders: We endeavour to ensure that you receive your goods in pristine condition. If you notice that items are missing, damaged or incorrectly delivered, please contact our customer services department as soon as possible and not later than 72 hours after receiving the order on 01422 351322, or alternatively email

Failed Deliveries: Our couriers will attempt delivery to the requested address twice. If the second attempt to deliver fails then the goods are returned to the local depot where they are made available to collect. Goods are stored for up to 5 days after which they are returned to us. Following 2 unsuccessful delivery attempts all subsequent attempts will be chargeable at the appropriate rate. If goods are returned to us then a non-delivery charge of £15.00 will be levied. Redelivery of goods returned to us will also be chargeable at the appropriate rate. Wherever possible we will contact you to ensure delivery is successful, however in the event of us not being able to contact you we will hold returned goods until you have instructed us to re-deliver.

Liability All deliveries are subject to clearance of funds and stock availability, this combined with the third party nature of courier services means that, whilst we always try to keep to promised delivery dates, occasionally goods may arrive late. Invariably this is to do with factors outside of our control. For this reason we cannot offer guarantees on delivery dates or accept any liability for losses as a result of late deliveries.
