Additional Information

Shipping Instructions

At the time of ordering you can also provide us with a contact telephone number and delivery instructions that may help our carrier once your order has been despatched. Typically, this could include leaving an order with a neighbor or perhaps in a safe place if you are not home. We will pass your contact telephone number and delivery instructions on to our carrier to aid delivery – who will then either call the contact number provided or leave a card to let you know where to find your order if it has been left, or what to do next if we have missed you. Please note the contact number you provide will not be used for marketing purposes. 

Please note we would recommend that you do not send your order to a PO Box (larger or multiple item orders sent to a PO Box address may not be delivered).
