*A minority of postcodes, including the Highlands, UK Islands, Channel Islands and Northern Ireland, do not qualify for free shipping. The exact cost of delivery is determined by your postcode. This can be checked using the tool at the bottom of this page and will also be visible before checkout.


Overweight Orders:

The maximum weight for any parcel we can dispatch is 31kg. Orders weighing over 31kg will be dispatched in 2 or more parcels (depending on weight). Based on the value and weight of your order, a service charge of £1.99 per additional parcel will be applied to cover additional costs.The fee will be visible before checkout.

This service charge applies to deliveries to postcodes in Great Britain only. Different parcel charges will apply for orders to Northern Ireland & international orders. The fee will be visible before checkout.

Summary of additional parcel charges for the UK:

Delivery Location Service charge for additional parcels over 31kg
Great Britain £1.99
Northern Ireland £5.99


Occasionally the actual weight (gross weight) of a product can differ slightly from its nominal weight due to packaging or because manufacturers have slightly higher filling weights. We use the gross weight of the product for order weight calculation.
