Returns & Order Information
Track My Order
At each stage of the order process we will send you an email to keep you up to date with the status of your order:
- Fulfilled - your order has been despatched in full from our warehouse
- Partially Fulfilled - part of your order has been despatched. We will despatch the rest of your order as soon as we receive the out of stock items
If your order has been partially delivered this may be due to us dispatching some items from various locations and therefore separate deliveries.
Why hasn't my order been sent yet?
Most products are normally in stock, however, occasionally some items may be out of stock. Information as to whether a product is in or out of stock and how long it may take to be despatched can be found on the product page just above the 'Add to Cart' button. As soon as the product(s) arrive we will despatch them and send an email to notify you of this.
Orders can take a few working days to arrive depending on which postal option you have chosen. You can check how long each delivery option is likely to take on our Delivery Information Page here
Can I Change or Cancel my Order?
Once you have placed your order we are normally unable to make changes.
If you would like to purchase further items, you will need to place a new order for these. If you need to change the delivery address on your order please contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately. In such a circumstance, however, we are unable to guarantee that we will be able to make the requested alteration, as the order may have already been despatched by the time we read the email.
