BREXIT DISRUPTION – Latest Delivery Update


BREXIT DISRUPTION – Service Update – 08.01.21

Due to Brexit, there have been significant changes that we, along with our delivery partner have had to make to allow us to get your orders to you.

We have encountered some unforeseen issues with the additional customs data requirements which has placed extra pressure on our turnaround and delivery times meaning that any orders placed from Saturday 2nd January 2021 have been delayed.

We are very sorry if your order has been affected due to this situation and we’re working hard with our carrier to get your parcel to you as soon as possible. The tracking link in your dispatch email will provide the most up to date status of your order.

For any new orders placed, please be aware that due to this situation your goods may take a little longer to reach you. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.
