We ship our products from a number of suppliers in the UK, EU & Worldwide. Due to the nature of shipping from different locations around the world, timescales vary due to a number of factors. These include:
- Whether or not the item has been manufactured.
- Whether the item has been granted QC approval and is ready for shipping.
- The location of the item.
- Delays caused by shipping services.
- Import/customs holding periods.
Due to these factors we ask that all of our customers email us at email@example.com before ordering. We will then be able to check the stock status of any items to be purchased. If you do not do this, we will endeavour to give you as accurate a timescale as possible for delivery but cannot guarantee a delivery timescale in line with your expectations due to factors outside our control. This will be detailed in an email to you when your item is shipped.
We are not repsonsible for any delays in the shipping/handling process, including but not limited to:
- Natural disaster
- Adverse weather
- Traffic accident

- Import/customs delays
If your items do not arrive, or arrive with damage, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to resolve the issue.

More Shipping FAQs
Due to us being situted in Northern Ireland. See below:
During negotiations the EU and UK agreed a Northern Ireland Protocol that there would be no new checks on goods crossing the border between NI and the Republic of Ireland (ROI).
The protocol aims to:
- avoid a hard border between NI and the ROI
- make sure of the integrity of the EU’s single market for goods
- facilitate unfettered access for NI goods to the GB market, and the inclusion of NI goods in free trade agreements between the UK and third countries
As a result of the protocol, NI has in effect remained in the EU's single market for goods (England, Scotland and Wales have left the EU's single market for goods).
This allows goods to flow to and from NI to the ROI and the rest of the EU as they did while the UK was a member of the EU, without customs checks, tariffs or new paperwork.
