Delivery Information

COVID- 19 Update

Like many businesses, we may experience delays on a small number of products due to manufacturing and delivery delays as many suppliers continue to adapt as a result of COVID-19.

As always, we are working hard with our suppliers to maintain a high level of availability on products. Some direct delivery items may be subject to extended delivery times during this time.

Please persevere with us and we’ll endeavour to get your order to you as soon as possible.

If you have any queries please email us at and a member of our Customer Service Team will be in touch to support you.

Important Information

As per the industry standards our couriers will guarantee to deliver to pavement/kerb side level only.

Please note due to the varied product types and suppliers we may part ship your orders to ensure you receive the reserved items as soon as possible. Any remaining items would then be on back order and sent out on future deliveries.
