How long will my delivery take?
The carrier will aim to deliver within 48 hours from dispatch for UK mainland addresses (excluding remote areas) when placing your order Sunday-Thursday (before midday Thursday). This is not a guaranteed delivery window, but is acurate in most cases.
Tracking information can be provided for most items; this will be sent to you by email along with your order confirmation.
Do you deliver abroad?
We are able to ship selected products abroad, but we would usually expect you to cover the costs of delivery.
Unfortunately, we are currently unable to ship products overseas when purchased via our website. To obtain a delivery quote, please contact us.
How will my item be delivered?
Smaller items will be delivered by our parcel carrier. If you are not in, you will be carded for collection at your local post office.
Larger items are delivered by a tracked 48-hour. Our very largest products (complete playgrounds and playhouses) will be palletised and require booking in on a specific date for delivery. You will be contacted in advance to arrange the delivery; please ensure that you are able to receive the delivery on that day. A small number of our spare parts are sent by Royal Mail. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide tracking details for these items.
What should I look out for?
Many of our larger items are delivered in several parts, this is because of the sizes and weights of the products.
Your order may include parts such as:
Wood packs: These are the packs that make up the wooden parts of your toy. They are constructed and packaged very carefully so that no parts should fall out.
Hardware box: The hardware box contains the nuts, bolts and screws necessary to build your toy. It may also contain accessories such as swing seats and climbing ropes. On most items, the hardware box also contains the all-important assembly instructions!
On some of our smaller playcentres the hardware may be contained inside the wood pack.
Slide: If your toy has one, this will arrive as a separate component.
Where your item is expected to be delivered in parts, we will let you know on your delivery tracking exactly what to look out for. Usually, all parts of your order should arrive in one delivery. However, occasionally couriers may deliver in split deliveries, so we ask you to kindly wait two working days before contacting us about your order.
