Timed and Saturday deliveries
Please call or email if you required a timed delivery or a Saturday delivery. We will need to check on the best service and price options.
Place your order either using our on line shop, by email or by phone. We will not take any payment from your card until we have confirmed shipping options and charges and you have agreed on a specific option. Only then will we process payment and despatch.
Due to the variations in item cost, item volume, item weight and perhaps the need for lots of protective packing on certain items it has not been possible to set up an automated method of identifying when an alternative delivery method should be applied.
The default setting we have on this shop is a next day delivery fee of £8.50 (Interlink) and in the vast majority of cases this is the most cost effective way to get your order to you. However when we receive an order for a single hose end or some washers then we do have the option of sending the parts in a padded envelope with Royal Mail on a signed for service. In such instances we will contact the purchaser to confirm this is an acceptable change. We send out items by courier and Royal Mail on a daily basis.
If you have read our page titled 'Your Order' you will already know that no payment is taken from your card until your items are ready to be finally packed and despatched for next working day delivery (UK). This is an important feature when we discuss delivery charges. With this in mind I would like to explain what we do.
Whilst your order is being processed we will know if we can send it to you with Royal Mail and we will attempt to contact you to confrim this is acceptable. We will alter the final invoice value ( a reduction in cost) before any payment is processed from your card.
This all happens 'behind the scenes' with no fuss or affect on the service we provide.
If you have any questions or would like any detail to be confirmed please call or email Speedflow.
