Delivery before Christmas and festive trading hours
The very latest time by which to place an order for delivery before Christmas for orders being delivered to a UK mainland, non highland address is 3pm on Thursday 19th December. Please call for last delivery dates before Christmas to the UK highlands, islands, Northern Ireland or overseas addresses.
However, if you need an order urgently or need to order on Friday 20th December for delivery on Monday 23rd December, please call us on 01842 824505, as some delivery depots MAY still be able to fulfil urgent orders!
Please note we and our carriers APC do not guarantee delivery before Christmas, as unforeseen delays including severe weather conditions, road traffic accidents or roadworks or customers not being available at delivery addresses may prevent delivery being made.
By accepting your order prior to Christmas, we cannot be held responsible or liable for delivery not being made before Christmas Day, and cannot compensate for any loss incurred through this, or any inconvenience caused.
We recommend ordering by 3pm on Wednesday 18th December to allow extra delivery time for UK mainland addresses and allowing 7 days minimum lead time for UK highland addresses and at least 7-10 days lead time for overseas addresses.
