If you are having problems signing in to your account, ensure that you are entering the correct email address and password for your existing account. If you continue to have problems logging in, try sending a 'forgotten password' reminder to your email address to ensure you have the correct email and password for login. For more help, contact us immediately.

No. Once an order has been dispatched, the delivery address cannot be changed. This is because your order has already been packed and may have left our warehouse.
If you are not at the specified delivery address when delivery is attempted, the carrier should leave a ‘while you were out’ card. This card will give you the information you need to collect your parcel, or have it redelivered elsewhere.
Where our standard delivery service has been selected we aim to dispatch your goods within two working days of receiving your order. You will receive an email when your order has been dispatched and is on its way. If for some reason your order is delayed or cancelled we will notify you by email as soon as possible.
Standard UK deliveries usually take 2-3 working days from when it’s dispatched to be delivered, but may take up to seven working days to be delivered. Many orders are dispatched with a tracking link giving you up to date information on the location of your parcel.
For next working day delivery (excluding weekends and UK public holidays) place your order before 1.30pm.
When an area has suffered adverse weather conditions (e.g. snow, flooding), orders can be delayed. In these circumstances it is not unusual for parcels to take up to 10 working days to be delivered.
