*Special notice:

Please note that as we are primarily a B2B supplier whereby we use our own warehousing and delivery vehicles and staff, we are proud of our 100% delivery success rate on a very large proportion of our customers orders using our own vehicles and employed delivery drivers.

Until further notice, only our warehouse based in London remains open and we can only support our 100% delivery success within the M25 made with our own vehicles for now.  

For orders outside of London and until our regional warehouses re open, we are at the mercy of our couriers and hence we could not offer a 100% guarantee for next day delivery.

In particular, please note that in the event of an order going missing or parcel damaged scheduled for a Friday delivery it would be unlikely that we would be able to recover the issue before the following working day the following week and although we do offer next day Friday deliveries nationally and that 99%+ are delivered successfully, we cannot guarantee courier deliveries especially on Fridays.

Therefore, to avoid disappointment on a time sensitive order requirement  we would always advise you to place your orders with plenty of lead time especially during the current Covid-19 crisis where couriers are overwhelmed with orders. Please consider that sometimes we are not informed of a non-delivery until 24+ hours later. For the avoidance of any doubt, we will never accept an order for a guaranteed delivery date and time unless that is within a wide delivery time window and to be made using our own delivery drivers. We will of course always do our best.

Web orders placed before 3pm on Fridays will be processed for delivery on the following week.

Please also note: Until our regional warehouses re-open, for postcodes outside of London there is a delivery surcharge of £5 per case for delivery for cases of soft drinks and beer (i.e 3 cases of beer = £15 shipping) - as the website is not currently configured to automatically charge you for this shipping you will be sent a link via email to pay the extra cost for delivery.

If you're placing an order to be shipped to another address (different to where the card is registered), there may be a delay in dispatching your order, this will allow us to carry out extra checks that are necessary before processing your order. Please note that the day of delivery is subject to availability of the stock. 

As part of our delivery policy, If the value of your basket at the checkout is £80 or more or if the shipping and billing address are different, we may ask for proof of billing i.e. utility bill or bank statement before the goods can be released.
