WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE MY ORDER?
This depends on the size of your order. Please note we are not a normal wholesaler with simple product lines. We are liquidation wholesalers with a huge variety and volume of stocks and sometimes due to the complexity (mixture of brands and styles), there could be slight delays out of our normal shipping specs.
Parcels: Our aim is to process and dispatch all orders placed the next working day. Some parcels may take up to 3 days for dispatch depending on our order backlog.
Pallets: Up to 2 pallets will be processed and dispatched in 2-3 days, for orders above 3 pallets the same week.
Containers: Depending on your deal, we will quote you a delivery timeline… usually 7-14 days.
I HAVEN’T RECEIVED MY ORDER YET?
If you have received a shipping confirmation email but have not received your order within the estimated time, then please contact us either by phone or email, quoting your order number.
If you have not received a shipping confirmation email then this means that your order has not been dispatched. This may be due to the stock shortages or we are awaiting confirmation of payment. Whatever the delay we will contact you either by phone or email and let you know.
I WAS UNAVAILABLE FOR MY PARCEL. WHAT DO I DO?
At the time of delivery, given that there was nobody available for a signature, the courier should leave a card for you. It is then your responsibility to contact the couriers to arrange for a re-delivery.
Please note that our couriers will only attempt to re-deliver twice. If you are unavailable for the third time, you will be liable to pay additional shipping charges to arrange for a re-delivery.
