UK Delivery

We usually despatch all UK orders within 1-2 working days.

Royal Mail Tracked 48 and FREE delivery orders then take a further 2-3 days to arrive with customers, depending on your local depot.

All UK and Channel Islands deliveries now have a flat shipping cost of £3.95 with Royal Mail Tracked 48. UK and Channel Islands orders over £40 qualify for FREE Standard Shipping/Royal Mail Tracked 48. 

Express Shipping/Royal Mail Tracked 24 to the same locations is £6.95 and will be dispatched the same day if placed before 1pm. 

We also offer Express delivery with DPD, this has a cost of £8.95 and will be dispatched the same day if placed before 1pm.

During any future or ongoing strike action by Royal Mail, we will continue to dispatch orders as usual. However, they will not be collected until the next working day after any strike by Royal Mail has finished. If that happens, please allow a little extra time for delivery if selecting either of our Royal Mail services. Alternately we do have a DPD option which we recommend you use during any strike action if you need urgent delivery. Thank you.

All orders are shipped in DCUK branded boxes. If you are sending a gift and would like an unbranded box, just pop us a note at the checkout.
