UK deliveries

If your order is received before 3:00pm (Monday to Friday) and is in stock it will be dispatched that day and may be delivered the following day.

Due to the low cost of a lot of our goods we are not able to ‘hide’ the cost of delivery in the price of an item. However we charge delivery at a sensible price that reflects what it costs us to send an order. If you live on the UK mainland and don’t have any Perspex in your order it will cost £3.95 (£4.74 including VAT) if you spend less than £40 (£48 including VAT).

Delivery is free on orders of £40 or more (£48 including VAT).

If your order is over £50 in value or more than 1kg in weight and shipping to the UK, then it will be sent on a guaranteed next working day courier service (signature required. Note: Some remote areas take two days). Otherwise it will be send by first class mail. All orders to customers with account facilities that are over £20 will be sent by UPS.

If you are ordering in the UK and you know you're not going to be in to sign for your goods you can have it delivered to an address of your choice. Simply specify a different address during the checkout process.

You can see more details of charges in the table below.
