Delivery Times:

We are unable to offer same day or next day delivery. Orders are processed after we receive cleared payment which takes 1-2 working days.
Orders are then usually processed in 1-3 working days but we sometimes have an order queue. Assembled products might take a day or two longer.
Orders are then dispatched with a 1-2 working day delivery service.

Signature Required:

All deliveries of larger parcels are sent by consignment, that is with signature, so consignees are signing to confirm delivery in undamaged condition.
Therefore ensure all parcels are inspected, adding the word 'DAMAGED' to your signature is necessary even if damage is only suspected otherwise claims cannot be verified and will not be accepted.
Claims for loss or damage are not accepted when a customer has signed to confirm receipt without damage or where a signature has not been obtained because of a customer request e.g. LEAVE ON PORCH.
Any claim for damage must be made to us by email within 24 hours of delivery together with photographic evidence to clearly show damage to the item and damage to the external packaging.
Insurance for damage to glass items or wax sheets is not possible so these can only be dispatched at buyers risk.

Stock Availability:

If an item is temporarily out of stock it will be highlighted in your shopping basket so you will know before making an order.
