Delivery Information

CHRISTMAS DELIVERY INFORMATION

To make sure you receive anything you might be buying in time for Christmas, we recommend that you purchase any item needed before the 12 pm cut off time on Wednesday the 19th of December. Any orders which are placed after this time will still be sent out via next day delivery but we can not guarantee that they will make it to you before the 25th of December.

The last day/time we will send out any orders placed after the above time will be 12 pm on Friday the 21st of December. Again these are more than likely unable to make it to you before the 25th unless you have selected a Saturday delivery slot. Even with Saturday delivery selected DPD cannot guarantee that this service will be fulfilled around the hectic Christmas period.

After the 21st of December, orders which are placed will be processed as normal and sent out via DPD on Thursday the 27th of December.

Please also note that Torne Valley and DPD are closed on Tuesday the 1st of January and therefore orders placed after cutoff time on Monday the 31st will not be processed and posted until the 2nd of January 2019. 


Please note that the delivery information outlined below only applies to orders that are placed through the website. Local delivery via one of our vans for orders placed in a store will be charged at the amount specified by the branch.

Orders to be delivered on the next working day MUST be placed BEFORE 12 PM. Orders placed after 12 pm are not guaranteed to be shipped in time for next day delivery. Orders placed after 12 pm on a Friday, any time Saturday or Sunday will be processed on the following working day to be delivered the next working day.

If you have any more questions regarding our shipping costs please feel free to contact us.
