1 Hour Timed Delivery by DPD With SMS Notification
We don't want our customers waiting in all day for their parcels to turn up which is why we use DPD as our delivery partner. Once your goods have left our warehouse you will receive a SMS message and email from DPD (providing you have provided relevant contact information), the message will confirm that your goods are in transit to you and will contain consignment details so you can track your parcel online. On the morning of delivery DPD will once again send you a SMS message and email with a 1 hour delivery slot so you know when your goods will arrive, if this time is not convenient there will be options within your message to have your delivery delayed, left in a safe place, with a neighbour or at one of DPD's many drop off points so you can collect at a time suitable to yourself.
Although we cannot guarantee it, we always aim to dispatch all orders placed before 3pm on the same day (excluding bank holidays and weekends). We use DPD for next day delivery orders and although they do not guarantee next day delivery, almost 98% of orders are delivered on the next working day. Remember to order before 3pm if you require delivery for the next working day.
Large or Bulky Items
On bulky or heavy items, we have to use an alternate delivery service operated by XDP Express. It is still a next day delivery service to the majority of the UK however XDP do not offer a 1 hour timed service.
