Orders placed on after 1:00 pm on Friday, Saturday or Sunday will be shipped on the next working day to ensure the quickest possible transit time.

In certain circumstances, we may be able to arrange same-day delivery for our London based clients or indeed collection from our Notting Hill office. To organise this please call our office on 07973 615379 to discuss possible arrangements.

We use insured special delivery by the Post Office or courier service to ship goods within the UK.

We will fully insure any pieces that are sent to you up until the point that they are signed for. Please ensure that someone is available to sign for the delivery.

If your order is returned to us because the postal service could not deliver to you because there was no one available to receive the parcel, then any repeat delivery cost charges may be your responsibility. Shipments will be made on receipt of full payment.

We will deliver your order to the address you give us. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to make sure that this delivery address is correct.

If you decide to change the delivery address you have submitted please contact us as soon as possible via phone or email. We are not responsible for additional shipping costs if the order has already been shipped. We may also not be able to recall your order once it has been shipped.
