Delivery times are Monday to Friday, 9am – 6pm. 3-5 business day delivery Products available for delivery within 3-5 business days of your order being placed are usually furniture, large technology items, safes and some business machines. To find out the expected delivery of a product, or if a product is out of stock and unavailable for delivery, please check the product page before you place your order.

There is a delivery charge of £4.95 on orders over £50 (ex VAT). A Standard Delivery Charge of £7.95 is added to orders under £50 (ex VAT) Do you deliver outside the UK? We currently deliver to the UK mainland and Northern Ireland. Unfortunately we are unable to deliver to the Scottish Islands, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands. Do you send parcels to PO Box addresses? Unfortunately we are unable to deliver to PO Box addresses. All deliveries require a signature to ensure that order arrives safely and is received by the correct customer. Is furniture available for next day delivery? We are unable to deliver furniture as part of our next business day delivery service. These products are delivered using specialised couriers who will contact you the day prior to delivery with an expected delivery time. If I order several items, will they be delivered at the same time? The delivery time of your order depends on the type of products you have ordered and their expected delivery time. If all of your products are available for next day delivery, they should be delivered at the same time. If your products are a mixture of next day delivery and 3-5 business days, they will be sent to you on different delivery days depending on product availability. Product availability can be checked in the product description before adding an item to your basket.
