Infomation for all Country Deliveries

We endeavour to dispatch all orders received before 12 midday on the same day (Excluding weekends). Orders placed after 12 midday will leave the following day. The courier services we use operate Monday - Friday only.

United Kingdom: We use a 2-3 working day delivery service to UK mainland. We ask customers to wait 3-4 days before contacting us if not delivered. If you need a faster service (1 working day) please contact our sales team before placing your order online for further details. If your order needs to go on a pallet (table, bath, cages etc..) we will have to contact you before dispatch to go through the pallet delivery procedure and confirm a suitable delivery day.  

Northern Ireland & Republic of Ireland: We use a 1-2 working day courier service. We ask customers to wait 3 days before contacting us if not delivered. If your order needs to go on a pallet (table, bath, cages etc..) we will have to contact you before dispatch to go through the pallet delivery procedure and confirm a suitable delivery day.

Europe & Rest of the World: In most cases for international deliveries we use DHL. We endeavour to deliver shipments within an estimated 10 working days, however this may differ from time to time. We are not liable for any customs & import charges your country puts on imports. We recommend checking with your Government border & Imports departments before placing orders, to check what charges may be incurred and restriction your country may have against certain goods. Please also note the website will automatically calculate your postage for international orders. In some cases, the postage may be incorrect. If this is the cases we will contact you before shipping the goods. 

The website updates stock on an hourly basis to make sure that in the majority of cases, the items you order will be in stock. However in the event of an item being out of stock, we will contact you regarding this. 

Please note our office business hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, all order placed at the weekend will be processed and dispatched on a Monday.

Once your order has left our warehouse, the responsibility for them passes onto the carrier. However, we constantly monitor our carrier’s performance, so that you are assured of the best service at the most competitive rate. Damages and shortages must be notified within 24 hours. We also recommend that when signing for parcels, customers sign for the parcel as unchecked or damaged (if damaged) so that in the unlikely event there is a problem we can resolve this quickly and effectively.

Special note:

Please inform us, when ordering, if there will be no one available at your address to sign for goods when they arrive, as our courier will not deliver without a signature. If you miss the courier, please refer to your tracking link for details of what will happen next.  Your cooperation in this would be much appreciated.
