Please be aware that our dispatch time relates to the time it takes from when your payment is made to your order then being picked & packed, then finally dispatched with royal mail or parcel company, depending on the size of your order. This does not mean you will receive it within the stated timescale. Once your order has been dispatched, the estimated time scales are then down to Royal mail and Parcel Couriers, we can not be held responsible for their delivery times.
All orders under 1 kilo are dispatched with royal mail 48hr business tracking. Due to the high postage costs of parcels over 1 kilo we are unable to use royal mail for these orders. Therefore these orders are dispatched with a parcel company which may take longer to arrive to you than royal mail parcels.

In order to keep costs low and protect our Environment caused by pollution in transit, we may bulk dispatch parcels on the same day, this could result in your order being dispatched a day or two later than the currently advertised estimated dispatch time.
Combined Postage Information
If you would like to add to your current order then you will need to place an order as normal and then add a note at the checkout to combine with your current order. Try to include your current order number so we can find it straight away. As long as your current order has not been shipped then we can combine them and refund postage once shipped.
Please note, this may delay your current order at busy times by adding other orders to it. If your current order has been dispatched or we feel it will delay the order to long by combining them then we will not combine the orders even if you have requested them to be combined. This means you will not receive a postage refund.
If for any reason you dont receive your postage refund when you receive your order then just pop us a message or give us a call and we can take a look for you to find out why or to issue your refund through Paypal.
We reserve the right to change the way we calculate our postage at any time.
