Delivery

We have several delivery and collection options:
1. Delivery by Royal Mail.

Delivery by Royal Mail
Most of the products we have on our website are in stock at our premises, therefore we can process your order very quickly. However, due to our unique supply chain some items will have to flew in from our supplier. Therefore, our aim is to deliver orders to UK mainland addresses up to 21 days of your order being placed. We endeavour to process your order as quickly as possible and as a result your order may arrive earlier than estimated.

Many of our local customers choose this option. As soon as your order is ready for collection, we will send you an email or text to let you know. Your order will be available to collect from our premises in Birtley during our opening times Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm Please note that we are closed Saturday, Sunday and Mondays during Bank Holidays.


Collect from School
Some schools have a special “Free Delivery to School” arrangement. There will be regular deliveries to your school office. Once your order has been delivered to your school, we will notify you via text or email.

All goods are offered subject to availability. Delivery of goods will be deemed to take place at the Company’s premises unless otherwise agreed. Every effort will be made to deliver goods on time, but no responsibility can be accepted for late or non-delivery. All shortages, damages or non-delivery of goods must be notified to us by telephone within three working days and confirmed in writing within five working days of despatch. Claims for shortages or non-delivery must be supported by the carriers consignment or proof of delivery note on which the goods have been signed for as unchecked, short, or damaged as appropriate. By arrangement all deliveries should be carefully checked to ensure that the correct number of packages, boxes or cartons being signed for have been delivered, as no responsibility can be accepted afterwards for non or short delivery if there is a discrepancy. 

All deliveries should also be signed for as unchecked, damaged or both, if apply, unless the contents of all packages, boxes or cartons delivered are checked in front of the carriers delivery person, when any shortages or damages or both should be noted on the consignment/proof of delivery note and signed for as such.

No claims for shortages or damages will be entertained unless goods are checked at the time of delivery in the presence of the carrier’s employee. While every effort will be made to despatch goods on time, no responsibility will be accepted for late or non-delivery, or for any consequential loss whatsoever.
