How will my item be sent?
Within each auction there is a section regarding delivery which will state which service your item will be despatched on. Most of our items are sent out using Parcelforce, the UK's leading Courier company. Smaller items will be posted with Royal Mail, using their First or Second Class Recorded service.
PLEASE NOTE ALL OUR COURIERS REQUIRE ITEMS TO BE SIGNED FOR.
When will you send my item?
Your item will normally be dispatched the next working day after we receive cleared payment. We will send an email when your item has been dispatched. We dispatch items from Monday to Friday, but not at weekends or on Bank Holidays.
Can i choose when my item is delivered?
Unfortunately not. All our couriers will attempt delivery within the relevant timescale, and unfortunately it is not possible to specify a morning or afternoon delivery slot.
What happens if i am out when the courier tries to deliver?
This depends which courier is used. If there is no-one in to sign for the item:
Royal Mail will usually leave a card and return the item to their depot. You can then collect the item from their depot for 1 week after attempted delivery, before they return it to us. Occasionally Royal Mail may leave the item with a neighbour. Please Note it can take up to 2 months for undelivered items to be processed through Royal Mails system and delivered back to us. To re-send items returned to us, we would require postage costs to be paid again.
Parcelforce will try again the next working day, and if they still cannot deliver it, they will leave a card and return it to their depot. You can then contact them to arrange re-delivery or collection from their depot. Parcelforce may also either leave the item with a neighbour, or at your local Post Office.
Can i get my item delivered to a different address, e.g. a work address?
When we receive your order you will receive an email from us confirming the delivery address we have received from ebay. eBay use the shipping address from the address you have set up in paypal. It is therefore vital that this address is correct. If it is not correct your should email us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org. We cannot be responsible for sending your item to an incorrect address if that is the address you have registered with paypal.
