Current Delivery Status - Updated June 2020

We currently cannot guarantee the normal next day delivery service. Our provider is still offering a nationwide delivery service. However the service is subject to local disruptions.

We can request a priority service for Critical PPE supplies but this still does not offer a guaranteed next day service. Please add a note to the delivery notes section on your order and we will mark the parcel for this service.

EU and Worldwide deliveries are also currently subject to delivery lead times.
