Shipping & returns

How will your order be delivered?

All items destined for UK addresses are dispatched by DPD, Parcel force or TNT Express (occasionally First Class post Royal Mail for low weight items). It's not possible to specify exactly which carrier we will use for your order as this is based on our weight and size rulings at the time of order.

All goods will be sent on a signed for service, regardless of postal service used to ship your goods within the UK. 

A signature for goods received is required on all items before they will be left via the mail or courier services. Receipt of a signature at the delivery address for any order will act as proof that the order has been delivered to you. 

If there is no one available at the delivery address to accept delivery of couriered goods, you will be notified of an alternative delivery date or place to collect the goods. We cannot accept responsibility for large goods that are returned to the post office and remain uncollected. 

Delivery of goods to you will be considered to have occurred once the goods are placed with Royal Mail, or any other service we may use. Once goods are considered delivered the responsibility for the goods, risk of damage or loss will pass to you and you shall be responsible for them. 

Goods ordered will be delivered to the address given when the order was placed.

How long will my order take to arrive? 

When you place an order online, we will endeavour to have your order delivered within 2 -3 working days (often orders are sent 'next day'). We cannot guarantee this service, as it is not always possible. 'Out of Stock' and 'Special Order' items will take longer. Please call to confirm if the order is time sensitive.

However if goods ordered online are not in free stock, we will advised you of the delivery date and confirm if this is satisfactory. 

If for some reason there is a problem with your order i.e. due to a production lead-time, we will contact you directly by email or by phone at time of purchase to advise you estimated lead-time and take your instruction whether to proceed or not at that time. If you decide not to proceed because of the delay we will give you a full refund. 

We may deliver your items from the same order separately (as they become available in free stock) but will only charge for postage and packing as per the original order at no extra cost to you. SGS is not liable for any loss or damage suffered by you through any unavoidable delay in delivery of an order. SGS is not liable for any damage which occurs to an order after a delivery has been made. 

How much will my delivery cost?

Which we hope will demonstrate our commitment to offering you the best service combined with the comfort you’re paying a very fare price in receiving a signed for service on next day.
