We aim to process orders within the first 24 hours and have your items dispatched within 1 – 2 days, providing items are in stock. In many cases, and depending upon what time you place your order, orders are dispatched the same day. The range of Delivery Services we use are explained below in more detail.
Many of our products are made to order or bespoke items and these take time to produce. To give you an idea:
- Most of the British made products are made to order and lead times are usually around 5 – 6 weeks.
- House Signs, Numbers and Post Boxes have to be made to order and tailored to your details and these take around 8 weeks.

If your item is out of stock or needs to be made to order for you, we will contact you straightaway (usually within 24 hours) and advise you of the estimated lead time. You can decide whether you want to wait, cancel or amend your order.
