Option 2 - Three to five day delivery
3-5 days delivery - £3.49 inc. VAT
All 3-5 day deliveries are sent by post. If they can't complete a delivery they'll leave a card telling you where & when you can collect your parcel, or how to arrange a redelivery. Please allow 5 working days from placing your order before reporting any non-receipt of goods.
Exceptions: selected deliveries may need to be re-assigned on dispatch from post to tracked delivery. For example large/heavy items, or high value goods. This will be done at no extra charge to you. As a result, some items on your order may arrive as separate deliveries.
We deliver to all mainland UK locations and Northern Ireland (excluding P.O. Boxes).
NOTE: we can't deliver to the Channel Islands or other locations outside the UK.
Heavy and Large Products
All our orders are dispatched via courier networks and do not travel via parcel post. The parcel rate charges are often amplified for orders in excess of 15kg from all the couriers we use. As a result we have to reflect this in the delivery charges we make to our customers. Orders that contain products which at dispatch will be more than 20kg weight will be subject to a Heavy and Large delivery charge.
Products likely to be impacted by this higher rate parcel send are: boxes of paper, multiple quantities of water, desk stands or furniture and volume packs of cleaning supplies. This higher rate carriage charge will be indicated in your basket as a heavy or large delivery charged at £8.95.
