Shipping forecast - January 2022
Delivery times continue to be more unpredictable than usual, due to the aftermath of the holidays and widespread Covid-related logistics issues faced by couriers. Some of the more sluggish standard shipping/Royal Mail parcels are taking up to 10 working days (UK) or 6 weeks (international) to arrive, though most parcels are arriving much more quickly than this.
If you're in Italy please note that Royal Mail are currently reporting severe delays to delivery times, caused by IT problems in Italian customs. We're still posting orders to Italy at present, but be aware that they may take considerably longer than usual to arrive!
We are still shipping to our friends in the EU! 💙
New procedures mean that we're seeing customs delays with some EU parcels - we're doing everything we can on our end to make sure all parcels pass through the choppy waters of bureaucracy safely.
We are now registered with the IOSS in the EU, which means that for any order with a value of €150 or less before shipping we will now collect VAT when you place your order. This means that for qualifying orders couriers will no longer need to collect VAT at the border, which is the cause of a lot of the delays we've seen. If needed, our IOSS number is IM5280005270
Please note that for orders over €150, or for orders shipping outside the UK & EU, VAT will not be charged on our store and import VAT may still need to be collected by the courier. Sorry about that, we didn't set the threshold!
We offer shipping to almost any destination in the world (exceptions are at the bottom of the page). We try to ensure our shipping rates are as competitive as possible.
Our standard shipping service uses Royal Mail. Most orders we send by standard shipping are untracked, so if you need faster, tracked shipping we'd suggest choosing UPS or DHL as your shipping option. Please bear in mind though that UPS and DHL provide next working day delivery, so if you want delivery on a Saturday Royal Mail is your best option.
If you place your order before 14:00 GMT on a weekday, then we'll do our best to dispatch it the same day, however, at very busy times this may not be possible.
All delivery estimates are from point of dispatch, not from point of sale.
You will receive an email when your order is dispatched.
We're happy to ship to parcel forwarding companies, as long as you select a tracked shipping method (such as UPS or DHL) at checkout.
Shipping to PO boxes
Please note that our couriers DHL and UPS do not ship to PO boxes
