We cannot offer a scheduled delivery option and the goods are delivered according to the route and schedule of an independent courier service over which we have no control. The customer is responsible for providing the correct delivery address and contact information.
Unfortunately, breakage sometimes happen during delivery by courier. In these very rare cases, we would require photographic evidence of the broken items before being reimbursed for the damaged product. Please note the refunds are done the same day by us but may take a couple days to process through your bank.
Both your shipping and billing addresses can be added during the checkout process or changed by logging into “My Account”.

For the moment, due to logistical reasons with customs and rising fuel costs, we currently only ship within the Republic of Ireland. We are looking into shipping outside the country and hope to do so very soon.
That all depends on what was ordered. All items will be received together on the same day. We do our best to keep all items in one box but, in some occasions – to avoid any necessary breakages, we have had to use more than one box. Please note that if this is the case, you will only be charged for the one box (if under €50).
