Orders sent for delivery in Europe are dispatched via DHL Economy Select, and should be delivered within 1 - 4 working days.
Orders sent for delivery outside of the UK and Europe are dispatched via DHL Express, and should be delivered within 1 - 4 working days.
Some zones may fall outside the 1 - 4 working day window, especially in remote areas. More accurate estimates of delivery time scales via DHL to specific destinations are available on the DHL Service Guide under the Transit Times section.
DHL have a 96% success rate in delivering orders within this time frame, however this is not a guarantee. Due to the nature of international deliveries, and the complex import procedure in some countries, we do not guarantee the delivery times specified, and they should be regarded as estimates only.
If you chose to send your order via a tracked service, your tracking details will be emailed to you the next possible working day. For example, an order marked as "shipped" on a Friday by our warehouse team will have their tracking details delivered automatically via email on Monday. Tracking numbers are not live until processed by Royal Mail, hence the short delay between dispatch and tracking availability.
Loss or Delayed Item Claim Process
We cannot guarantee delivery in the periods specified. However, if the order remains undelivered for a period of 20 working days (International) or 10 working days (UK) following the date of dispatch, we will either process a refund of the order or alternatively dispatch the order again. Once this time period has expired we can raise a claim with our carrier Royal Mail. More information on Royal Mail's claim process can be found here. This waiting period requirement is specified by our carrier Royal Mail, and we cannot raise a claim prior to this unfortunately.
In order to raise a claim for a lost package, we ask you to fill out a short form, and complete a few checks. Through this process, we can ensure that your package is not waiting for you anywhere.
Please download and fill out the lost parcel claim form below. Please read the form and complete the checks prior to filling it out:
Please check and fill this form prior to contacting us. You can request support using our contact form here!
Once received we will ensure your claim is processed and submitted within 48 hours. Please accept out apologies for any disappointment caused by the loss of your items
Please note, there are exclusions from the quoted waiting periods as follows:
Russia & Brazil - Due to complex customs import procedures, delays are very likely in this region. Orders shipped via Royal Mail are subject to a delivery period of up to 25 working days. We can only raise a lost claim after this time period has expired.
Shipping Lithium Batteries
Tighter shipping regulations introduced in 2017 relating to the shipping of battery products have forced us to make some changes to the way that battery containing products are shipped. We cannot currently ship "loose" batteries, or batteries not contained in equipment via any air services (including Royal Mail Airmail, and DHL Express services). To use these services, the battery must be contained within or connected to an electronic device, and there must not be more than 2 cells (Royal Mail), or 4 cells (DHL) per shipment. We have therefore placed quantity restrictions on items that contain batteries. You will not be able to checkout with these services if "loose" batteries, or more than 4 battery containing products are in your cart.
Lithium batteries are defined as Lithium Polymer, and Lithium Metal (Coin Type) batteries.
UK and EU shipments to the following destinations can be made via a ground service (DHL Domestic, or DHL Economy Select), and there are no limits on quantity for any batteries, or battery containing products. However, they must be shipped via a DHL ground service.
