We offer 3 Royal Mail Services and a Courier service.

Royal Mail 1st Class Recorded Signed for requires a signature on delivery and is usually next working day but not guaranteed. This gives us proof of posting and delivery and allows the use of Track and Trace on Royal Mail website.We recommended this for most items.

Royal Mail 1st Class Special Delivery - Next working day before 1pm. Provides insurance and will require a signature on delivery. Excellent for urgent items.

Royal Mail First Class standard is usually 1-2 working days, requires no signature but sometimes items do not reach their destination. There is no Track and Trace facility and so we can take no responsibility for losses via Royal Mail using this service. We recommended this for light/small items only, but at your own risk

Next Day Courier service requires a signature on delivery and is guaranteed next working day delivery before 4pm. We have been using this courier for many years and find they offer a good service.
Recommended for large or heavy items or if you need it urgently.
