If your postcode is classed as Highlands & Islands and you require next day delivery, please give us a call on 01508 522412 for availability and prices.
What happens if I am not in to accept my delivery?
If no one is available at the property to sign for the goods upon delivery, a calling card will be left with the couriers contact details on, so you can rearrange delivery for a time that is convenient for you. If a request is made to leave the goods at the property in your absence, please note that this is just a request and is not guaranteed.
What happens if my goods are returned to you because no one was in to accept delivery?
DPD will attempt to deliver your goods 3 times before the goods are returned to sender. If no one is available at the property on each of these attempts, and there has been no contact made following the calling cards left at the property, the goods will be returned to us and a second delivery charge will have to be obtained before we can dispatch the goods again.
If your order was sent via Royal Mail, typically only one attempt will be made to deliver the goods, therefore if no one is available at the property to sign for the goods and the goods are not left in your absence, a calling card will be left with contact details on. Please note that Royal Mail will discard any goods not collected/delivered within 3 weeks.
Can I track my parcel?

However, if you have selected for your order to be delivered via DPD, on condition that you have provided a mobile number with your order, DPD will text you with a one-hour timeslot on the morning your parcel is due to be delivered. If you have not received this message, or you have not provided us with a mobile number, please give us a call and we will happily track this for you and pass on the tracking details.
