We have temporarily suspended International deliveries due to the current Coronavirus Pandemic, as this is causing delays in parcels being received by International customers. Brexit has also played a part in our decision not to post Internationally, as we are unsure how long parcels will take to  clear customs etc. so this, coupled with the pandemic delays, we have taken the decision not to ship Internationally for the time being. 

We will continue to monitor the situation on a regular basis and we hope to resume shipping to our International customers soon.

Lost Parcels

Royal Mail does not consider a parcel lost unless it has been missing for 10 business days in the UK,  20 business days in Europe or 25 business days for the rest of the World, from the due date of delivery (1-3 business days UK, 3-5 business days Europe & 5-28 business days World Wide depending on destination).  If you believe your parcel has been lost, please send us an email, however, we ask that you to wait the specified number of days suggested by Royal Mail before contacting us.


Parcels must be reported to us as not being received within 1 month of receiving your shipping confirmation in the UK, and within 2 months worldwide, otherwise a replacement/refund cannot be issued.
