We've made the decision to switch to DPD to handle all our typical consignments, we've found their service levels and tracking options to be far superior to other couriers.
As a result it has affected the price for economy delivery that we can offer seeing a small hike to cover the rise in cost but we consider this an acceptable increase considering the upgrade to service levels!
Free Delivery to the UK Mainland on all orders placed over the value of £75ex VAT (excludes any oversize/large consignment delivery costs)
To ensure a next day delivery, orders must be placed before mid-day. We operate from Monday to Friday, and orders placed Friday afternoon will be processed the following Monday. Orders dispatched on Friday via Next day delivery will be delivered the next working day (Monday).
All orders are typically despatched the same day - excluding Saturday and Sunday - and usually arrive 2 - 4 days after despatch.

Standard delivery is a DPD Economy Service 2-4 working day service and carries a £6.50 including VAT charge. Next Day Delivery is a 1-2 working day service for those wanting a quicker delivery and the charge is £7.50 including VAT. We do ask that you supply a telephone number if you choose this option which will be passed onto the carrier.

Delonghi Pinguino Air Conditioning Units
Due to the size/weight of these units we are forced to use an oversize consignment delivery service available with DPD freight. This is typically a 1-2 working day tracked service. We do ask for a day to prepare the units for freight so we usually find that your air conditioner will be delivered within 1-2 working days from ordering which allows for any influx of orders or delay in despatch.
