Delivery within the UK (Mainland)
All parcels over 2kg or £25 are now sent via DPD. This has been a welcomed change by our customers as you will receive a text or email letting you know an hour time slot for delivery. Should your delivery slot be inconvenient or you would like it left somewhere safe you have an option to reply to make changes to your delivery.
DPD is a next day service so from ordering to delivery it should be no more than 3 days. In many cases you will receive your parcel within 1-2 working days.
Parcels under 2kgs are still currently being sent via Royal Mail 2nd class service but most customers still receive their parcel within 1-3 days.
Delivery to Northern Ireland, Isle or Wight and Scottish Highlands
Uk orders outside of the mainland will be sent via Royal Mail if under 2kgs or by Collect Plus if over 2kg. Please allow upto 5 days for delivery.

If books arrive damaged please contact us within 24hrs. It is really helpful if you can take a photo of any damaged packaging so we can raise this with the relevant courier. I don’t want to jinx anything but we have only ever had one order arrive damaged in the last 5 years, we do make sure all books are very well wrapped and jiffy packed or boxed!
