We aim to dispatch all non-coral stock items within one working day of receiving a customers order.

Corals will not be dispatched until we have received confirmation from yourself that the proposed delivery date is acceptable to yourself. Customer delivery date confirmation must be received no later than 1pm the day before delivery. We know that fast delivery is important to you, we use commercial carriers and we rely on you to be available to accept courier deliveries. For coral deliveries we use an overnight courier service and for all other items we use either Royal Mail first class delivery or Royal mail recorded, 1st class delivery.
