With the exception of medium parcels, our set delivery charges apply to all orders, irrespective of the number products purchased.
As the business continues to grow, we identified that savings could be made, and have since received better pricing from our packaging supplier. As a result, we've reduced our P&P charges for most of the services we offer.
We also offer international delivery - Customers wishing to place an order for shipping overseas should email email@example.com for a quote.
Due to the severe weather conditions being experienced across the United Kingdom, there may be a short delay in receiving your order.
Although we are dispatching orders, the Royal Mail network has been disrupted - Their staff will continue to collect and deliver mail in areas where it is safe to do so.
A press release from Royal Mail says:
"Our mails distribution network was disrupted by the wintry conditions last night and this has adversely affected on the movement of mail around the country, and hence the availability of mail for delivery today in many parts. We're doing all we can to maintain services at a near-normal level and would like to apologise to customers whose mail deliveries and collections have been affected by the severe weather conditions"
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
