We thank you for your continued support and custom.

We are following the governments advice to ensure we keep our employees and customers safe during this time. Where possible, many of our employees are now working from home, and we are following high standards of health and safety in our warehouse. Drivers will also be observing social distancing practices when delivering your parcels.
For orders under €35.00 we continue to heavily subsidise postage, packing and insurance making it a reasonable €5 per order, no matter what the size!
For orders €35 and over we offer free delivery on all purchases.
Whilst placing an order, our basket page will show you an estimated delivery charge for your order. This will be confirmed for you at the final stage during checkout.
