1.1 lead times - unless your item has been purchased on a Next Day service we would ask you to allow up to seven clear working days ( these do not include Saturday or Sunday) for delivery. This is measured from the time that you received an order processing e mail from ourselves. if you need your order in a quicker time frame then we ask you to purchase your goods using the Next Day Service option or to call us first to discuss your requirements on 01691 780416. Please note that once goods have been dispatched from our warehouse, we have no control over the delivery time as this is soley governed by our service partners.
