Good To Know

  • Signed For/Leave Safe - DPD offer Signed For and Leave Safe options. Please see DPD shipping information below for further details.
  • Package Weights - Our boxes are shipped in weights of up to 30kg. If you are unable to carry this much, please ask a neighbour or family member for help, or consider opening the box and taking the items out one at a time to move.
  • Delivery Notifications - The delivery company will email you the day before your parcel is sent out to let you know. They may offer options in the email to have your order redelivered, delivered to a neighbour and more options (depending on the courier and the delivery method you have chosen).
  • 1-2 Working Days Express Delivery - You can upgrade your delivery to 1-2 working days (delivered Monday to Friday) for a small charge should you wish.
  • Delivery Speed - Deliveries are made during the working week (Monday - Friday). Weekends and bank holidays do not count in delivery timeframes. We do not currently offer the option for weekend deliveries.
  • Out of Areas Deliveries - Additional charges may apply to out of areas postcodes due to the additional costs of shipping to these areas (e.g. Scottish Highlands, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Northern Ireland). It may also take a little longer than the specified timeframe to deliver your items. See the bottom of this page for further information.
  • Item Availability - If for any reason part of your order is unavailable within the delivery timescales, we will ship all available items and send the unavailable item as soon as possible.
  • Different Addresses - If you'd like to ship your item to a different address, you can do so during checkout, just tick the 'ship to different address'. Make sure the billing address matches the card you are using, otherwise your payment may fail.
  • Contact Free Delivery - All of the delivery companies we use offer contact free deliveries as the default. Please read on for further information.
  • DPD Accessibility Options - If you need more time to get to the door for you delivery, DPD have launched a feature called 'More Time Needed' in their app. Simply download the app and when the delivery shows up in it, select the relevant option. You can also specify the exact location for your parcel to be left via the DPD app using what3words.

Please note we may add or remove delivery options in order for us to be able to provide the quality service our customers expect from us. As a result, in extremely busy periods, we may extend our delivery timeframes, remove express delivery, or both in order to meet demand. This will be clearly marked in the checkout.

*Additional charges may apply for large items or out of areas postcodes (e.g. remote areas). Details of which can be found on this page.


Contact Free Deliveries

For DPD Deliveries - The driver will place the parcel on your doorstep, ring the doorbell/knock and step back to a safe distance. The driver will then take a photo of the package on your doorstep (preferably with the door open) as proof of delivery.

If you're going to be out - If you are not going to be in, please nominate a safe place. Both companies will send you an email before the delivery is due to arrive, please follow the links to pick a safe place. Alternatively you can use their apps.


DPD Delivery Options

Leave Safe Delivery Option - Select 'Leave Safe' if you think you won't be in when the parcel arrives. You must provide instructions when DPD email you with your delivery confirmation, which is sent to you both the day before and in the morning on the day of delivery. If you do not provide leave safe instructions, then the driver will leave your parcel at their discretion. By nominating a safe place, you accept responsibility once it is left at your property.

Signed For Delivery Option - The driver will knock, they'll then take a photo of the parcel in your doorway (as proof of delivery instead of you signing for it). If you aren't in, you can provide instructions via the links in the delivery confirmation email DPD will send you both the day before your delivery and on the morning of your delivery. You can also provide instructions via the DPD app. Please note you might also see this option referred to as a 'Signed For Delivery', however since Covid a signature is no longer required, hence we've changed the name to better explain this option. If you have a leave safe preference saved in the app then this will mean that your Signed For can be left safe if you are not available.

Control Your Delivery

You can control your delivery on the DPD website, or through the DPD app. Download the app to be able to: specify which neighbours to deliver to if you're out (and which ones to avoid!), specify a leave safe location, redirect your parcel to a participating local store, take a photo of your house to help the driver identify it, take a photo of where you'd like the driver to leave your parcel (leave safe). You'll can download the DPD app from your phone or tablets app store (Google Play Store or Apple App Store).

Downloading the app is optional. DPD will also email you the day before your delivery and also on the day to confirm your delivery slot. These emails will contain a link for you to adjust your delivery on their website - for example to deliver to a neighbour (you'll need to download the app to say which ones to avoid).

Please note that you can download the app at any time to set your default preferences. To specify different preferences for an order you've just placed with us, you'll need to wait until your order has been packed and sent on to DPD before it shows up in their system.

Please check your delivery settings prior to making an order, as DPD may default to your last chosen safe place.

Delivery Phishing/Scam Email Attempts

If you receive an email asking for money for a parcel delivery, or something doesn't quite add up, please double check with the courier before handing over any money as this could be a scam. If you are unsure about an email you have received from a 3rd party such as a delivery company, we would always recommend going directly to that companies website and entering your tracking number rather than clicking the links in the email.

We cannot advise on this ourselves, but you can seek advice from our couriers who would be happy to advise further. You can find further information on these attempts on the DPD website.



Buying From Outside The UK

Although we don't currently deliver outside of the areas mentioned on this page, you can purchase a gift on our website from abroad for delivery to someone in the UK.

To do this, shop as normal and at the checkout, enter your current billing address. It may still say United Kingdom as the country, if it does please ignore this field your payment will still go through.
