Delivery & Delivery Charges

Once your order has been received we aim to dispatch within two working days subject to items being in stock and all orders except for small packets are sent out via our Couriers DPD or APC on an overnight delivery. Please note that deliveries to the Highlands and islands including Northern Ireland take two days.  Sometimes, at busy periods, orders may take a little longer or where we are awaiting new stock but should the delivery time be longer than seven days from receipt of order the customer will be contacted by email or telephone.   Small packets are sent out via Royal Mail First Class Post.

Please note that courier companies vary in their procedures when it comes to leaving parcels for customers.  Unless you have expressly requested for your parcel not to be left in a safe place, they will often leave the parcel for you for your convenience.  Very rarely parcels can go missing.  When this happens Wares of Knutsford does not accept liability.  So please make every effort to be available to receive your goods, especially for larger orders and let us know if you are not happy for your goods to be left. 

You will be contacted by the courier company with a delivery window on the day of delivery.  If they do not leave your goods in a safe place and you are not at home the courier will send you an email, text message and / or leave a paper card at your address.  It is then your responsibility to contact the courier and arrange collection from a pick up shop or re delivery of the goods.  Wares of Knutsford is not responsible for shipping costs when goods are returned as non-delivered to us and refunds will therefore be for goods only. 

Our delivery charge is £7.95 per order within the UK Mainland so no matter how you order you will pay £7.95 delivery - no extra charges for weight or volume of your order.  The only exception to this is if you live in an area of Scotland that the courier companies deem to be 'remote'. Please see the paragraph below for detail on postcodes.
