How will Covid-19 and Brexit affect my order?
Unfortunately, due to the increased demand in delivery services please anticipate delays in the delivery of your order as our courier services are taking extra precautions to deliver items safely and follow the local governments guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Also, due to Brexit, orders to EU countries may experience delays during Customs.
For EU and International orders, please be aware if your order exceeds the maximum value for imported goods before it is charged, you may be asked to pay for customs to receive your order, you must pay this additional charge in full. If you have any other questions regarding how Covid-19 or Brexit will affect your order, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

I am from the UAE, should I add my PO Box Address?
Yes, please add your PO Box address, we have found that some of our orders to the UAE have been rejected from the local postal services as there was no PO BOX address provided. It is therefore advised that you add your PO Box address as a precaution and to ensure your order does not get sent back to us by mistake.
Do you ship to APO/ FPO Addresses?
Yes, however we advise you to select Standard shipping at checkout as the courier for express delivery does not ship to military addresses, so it will be re-delivered back to us.
When will my order be dispatched?
Orders placed before 12:30pm on a working day will be dispatched on the same day. Orders placed after 12:30pm will be dispatched on the following working day.
Please be aware that the delivery of your order may be impacted by national holidays in the UK and in the respective country in which the order has been shipped to. Orders placed on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays will be processed the following working day.
I have ordered an item with a pre-order; will this delay the dispatch of my entire order?
Yes, all orders with pre-ordered items will be dispatched together once the pre-ordered item is back in stock. If you would like to receive the other products as soon as possible, it is advised to place separate orders for the products in stock and on pre-order.
My tracking number is not working
Please allow 24 hours for your tracking number to activate as it needs to be picked up by the courier before it is activated. For international orders, tracking may not be available at the delivery partners website as it has not passed through customs. Please wait until your order has passed through customs before tracking your order. If you are still experiencing issues with the tracking number, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name and order number.
