Delivery timescales

We aim to dispatch all orders within 3 working days (assuming stock is available). If your order is urgent please call us on 01865 727746 to arrange an expediated dispatch.

Please note: Made to order college clothing must be ordered before the 16th of December for a Christmas delivery.

In the case of special order products designed to individual customer specifications, a delay may apply to allow for production of the item. This will be stated in the individual product description, where applicable.

The length of time an order takes to reach its intended destination will depend on the location. UK inland orders will typically arrive within 4 - 7 days of dispatch but it is likely that overseas deliveries will take 2 - 3 weeks.

In addition, please be advised that we are unable to make any deliveries during weekends (any destination) or over bank holidays (UK only).

We also offer express courier delivery which is next day delivery for UK mainland destinations, 1 - 2 days for Europe, 2 - 3 days for USA and Canada, and 3 - 5 days for the rest of the world.

Delivery destinations served

Orders can be delivered throughout the United Kingdom (including the Channel Islands), European Union, United States, Canada, Australia, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Japan, and many other international locations. If your country is not on the list of available destinations please contact us and we'll try to help.

Please note: Courier, special and international delivery must be signed for at the delivery address and cannot be left with a neighbour. If you are unlikely to be home please choose a different delivery address.

Please note: Orders for delivery outside of the UK may be subject to customs charges. 

Delivery charges

Carriage charges are based on total order weight, destination, and class of service selected. Customers may choose from standard delivery (via Royal Mail in the UK / Airmail overseas) or the faster but more expensive, private courier option which is trackable and requires a signature upon delivery.

*Standard UK delivery is free of charge (excludes Channel Islands).

Prices for the UK start at £7.95 for courier.
Prices for Europe start at £8.95 for standard delivery and £11.95 for courier.
Prices for the USA and Canada start at £8.95 for standard delivery and £14.95 for courier.
Prices for the rest of the world start at £8.95 for standard delivery and £19.95 for courier.

N.B: Delivery options offered may be limited to private courier only with larger orders and / or certain destinations. Orders weighing over 2Kg will always be sent by courier. Orders weighing more than 1Kg will be sent by courier if the destination is outside the UK.

Application of delivery charges in the basket

For unregistered customers, initially, your basket will be shown without delivery charges applied. However, during the checkout process you will be given the opportunity to specify your order's delivery destination. This information will then allow us to calculate the appropriate delivery charge to apply to your order.

Registered customers with a single 'fixed' delivery address should see their charges calculated (and re-calculated as items are added / removed) from the outset.

Those registered customers without a single allowed delivery address will need to specify the destination of their order at the start of the checkout process in order to see their delivery charges applied in the basket.

N.B: Please note that where multiple delivery options exist for a destination, delivery charges may not in fact be calculated until the point of delivery method selection during the checkout process.

Specifying a different address for delivery

If you require the dispatch of your order to an address other than the billing / cardholder's address, simply specify that your delivery address will be different from your billing address at the start of the checkout process and you will be offered the opportunity to enter / select the alternative details later in the process.

Special delivery information: Oxford furniture

Following the acceptance of your order, we shall contact you on the following working day to arrange delivery of your furniture within 14 days. The Oxford furniture is despatched on a white glove delivery service.

Customs For Non UK Deliveries

If your delivery address is outside of the UK then any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you. We have no control over these charges and can't predict what they may be.

Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact the local customs office for further information if you have concerns.

When ordering from, you're considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which the goods will be received.
