UK Delivery Information

This information applies to UK deliveries only. 

We aim to do our best to get your order to you as soon as possible. We have various options available and these can be selected at the Checkout process. Delivery times are dependant on stock situation, type of product and whether the product has any transport regulations that need to be adhered to. 

 Delivery options  

STANDARD DELIVERY - We aim to deliver UK orders within 2 to 5 days from receipt of your order.  For destinations outside of the UK delivery times may be extended dependant on order destination. 
NEXT DAY DELIVERY - This is an Express Next Day Service and applies to most parts of the UK. 
An order cut-off time applies which is currently 12:30pm. A small surcharge will be applied to the standard charges.
COLLECT IN STORE - If you wish to collect from us then that can easily be arranged. We ask that you contact us first to check on product availability and opening hours.  
POSSIBLE EXTENDED DELIVERY - We hold many products in stock but some items may take longer to deliver than others. This may apply for some sizes and colours of ESD Clothing and also ESD Abeba Shoes. Larger items such as Treston ESD workbenches, ESD trolleys and  Piergiacomi depaneling machines will generally be a non-standard delivery. Do contact us for the stock situation and lead time.
RESTRICTED TRANSPORT PRODUCT -  We despatch products classed as hazardous by specific recognised licensed transport companies. This will include flammable liquids and corrosive products. Note: We do not ship hazardous liquids outside of the UK.
