What courier do you use for deliveries?
UK orders are currently sent by Hermes, unless they are unusually large and a specialist courier has to be used.
Mainland EU orders are also sent by Hermes, but once it leaves the UK, then Landmark typically takes over delivery.
We do also have the more expensive option of Royal Mail (for UK orders) and Crown Same Day for customers that need products urgently, but at a greater cost.
You can select your appropriate option when you proceed through checkout.
How long does it take for home delivery?
Within the UK, Hermes typically takes between 2-3 days to deliver a parcel to most areas. Scottish highlands and rural places may take a little longer.
Royal Mail is generally next day if ordered in time for us to get it to the post office before collection.
The same day courier is, unsurprisingly, same day delivery.
Mainland EU orders vary, but they can take anywhere from 4 days, to 2 weeks.
I placed an order on Friday afternoon, when will I get my order?
Parcels are not collected by our couriers on weekends, so if it is collected on Monday morning, it may be delivered on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Why am I being charged for delivery on my order when it states standard delivery is free?
This could be because of your location. We try our best to give free shipping to the whole of the UK, regardless of how out of the way you are. However, if you bought a light for £20 with free shipping and shipping came in at £18, then we would be at a substantial loss.
If this is an issue, please get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.
I haven’t received a dispatch email/email confirmation?
Once you place an order, an invoice and all updates are emailed to you. Please check your spam folder in case it’s in there. It’ll be from: email@example.com.
Failing that, you can access your invoices from your account page, or just request more information/invoices directly from us and we’ll happily provide it.
Can I collect from a local store?
Sorry, but we have no physical store that is accessible by the public. Orders are online only.
Do you deliver on Weekend?
Hermes do not deliver on weekends, but Royal Mail does deliver on Saturdays.
Can I track my item?
Yes of course, just click on Track Your Order on the top left of the website and enter your Order ID and registered email address.
You’ll then be shown the current process of your order with us, and the most up to date tracking information for it.
Can someone else sign for my delivery?
Yes, it does not have to be the addressee. The signature is electronically logged for security reasons. Any signature at the address will be accepted as proof of delivery.
Do you deliver to PO Box addresses?
No. All of our couriers require a recipient signature to prove delivery of the item. This cannot be guaranteed at a PO Box address.
Do you deliver to BFPO addresses?
Yes we can deliver to BFPO addresses, and are glad to support British Forces overseas.
Do I have to pay Customs & import charges if I live outside of the EU?
Customs and import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.
Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost might be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting.
The customer must take full liability for any parcels returned to us due to unpaid customs charges. Postal charges, return shipment costs, customs charges and handling fees will all be deductible from any refund due.
The customs department of my country have asked me for further information. What should I do?
Each country has its own unique import procedures,which are subject to change. If you have an order held in customs then please contact our customer service team with your order number and tracking number, via email. We will do our very best to help resolve the matter as quickly as possible.
Your order invoice should provide all information required for the receiving courier/customs to process the parcel.
