Latest Delivery Information

Our website and warehouse are currently operational until further notice. We are now shipping orders out every working day and using DPD Local as our only courier. They provide a next working day contact-free delivery service. We are only shipping out stocked product line which allows us to reduce handling times during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The DPD contact-free delivery process includes photo capture for proof of delivery. You will not be asked to sign the handheld devices and the delivery driver will take a photo of the parcel at the point of delivery.

For those who are self-isolating, DPD also have a number of options available. Once you have placed your order using DPD, you will receive tracking information with options that include: setting delivery preferences on the DPD app or leaving a note on your front door to inform DPD where to leave your parcel.

Latest DPD updates can be found on their website here.

Our trade counter remains closed since the 23rd of March as we actively follow the Governments COVID-19 guidelines.

We are reviewing our operations on a daily basis and are contactable by email: [email protected]

Keep strong. Stay safe.

This applies to orders up to 30 kg in weight, please contact us for bulk orders.
