Which courier do you use for home delivery orders?
We only use DPD for all of our home delivery orders, simply because they offer a fantastic range of services, including DPD Predict and DPD Pickup. You will receive an email and text message (if you provide us with a mobile number on your account) as soon as your parcel is out for delivery, along with a one hour delivery window that can be tacked in real time so you know exactly when your driver will be arriving. Alongside a range of options if this one hour time slot isn't convenient for you.

Click and Collect Only Items
A selection of products on our site are only available for collection in store, and cannot be selected for home delivery, for example, frozen food items, live reptile food and some bulky items. Any items that are only available for collection in store are clearly flagged as being a "Store Only" item. Once at the checkout stage, if any of these items have been added to your basket you will only have the option to collect from your local store. Any products that you require for home delivery will need to be processed as a seperate order.

Normally we need 2-3 working days after you have placed you order to get your products picked and prepared for dispatch. When your order is ready to be sent out to you, your card will then be charged for the total amount of your order.
