Who Will Deliver My Order?

For orders under 2kg will usually be delivered by Royal Mail. Unless they are items like weedkillers and pesticides that will be delivered by DHL*
For orders between 2.1kg and 100kg will be delivered by either Parcelforce or DHL*
For orders over 100kg will be delivered by Pallet Force Network*
*The time it takes to deliver your goods will be down to the delivery partners ability to reach your post code area and them actually being able to deliver the order but if you have not received your goods within 10 days of ordering, please make contact with us immediately in order for us to investigate the problem.
Are There Any Areas That You Cannot Deliver To?
