Goddards offer FREE DELIVERY on ALL UK (including the Channel Islands) orders valued at £50 or more. Orders below £50 will attract a £2.50 Postage and Packing Charge. Orders over £100 in value will be dispatched EXPRESS at no extra cost. In most cases this will achieve a next day delivery if the order is placed before 2pm Monday to Friday. At weekends this will take slightly longer. Orders below £100 but over £50 are also sent free of charge, but use standard delivery. Alternatively you can pay £5 to have any order upgraded to Express. See details below.
If for any reason the item you have ordered is not in stock, we will e-mail or telephone you to let you know when you can expect to receive your purchase.
Orders under £50 Delivery
For orders below £50 in value there will be a charge of £2.50 for Postage and Packing. For an extra £2.50 you can upgrade your delivery to Express
Express UK Delivery for orders below £100
If your order value is below £100 and you require your items urgently we can still send them by Express Delivery. Please note that there is a £5 surcharge for this service. Please select this option on the Shopping Basket page. Whilst next day delivery may be an option, we cannot guarantee it. In particular goods ordered on a Saturday afternoon or Sunday are unlikely to arrive until Wednesday, or Thursday. However items ordered between Monday and Friday should arrive within 24 to 72 hours. We insure against loss of goods in transit to you.

Dispatch & Delivery Times
We endeavour to get your order to you as quickly as we can, at no cost to you, or at a minimal charge. Normally the delivery services we use provide prompt delivery. For standard delivery this is 3 to 5 working days, however, most carriers reserve the right to take up to 10 days, or longer abroad. Therefore, please allow 10 working days prior to contacting us about UK deliveries and 28 days for the rest of the world. For express deliveries see the grid above and contact us one day later if your item has not arrived.
Orders placed before 2 pm normally are sent on that day, or first trading day after our weekend closing. However, on odd occasions the payment clearing centre will hold up payments to us, whilst they are completing security checks. Unfortunately, these checks are beyond our control and are designed to protect both us and the consumer. In these circumstances, dispatch may be delayed until the next day.
Please make sure that the shipping address is correct as we are unable to redirect orders once they are on their way to you.

Vat Receipts & Vat Orders
All our orders are dispatched with VAT receipts.
Customers ordering from outside the European Union will receive a VAT reduction on their order at the current UK VAT rate. This is automatically applied at the checkout once you have confirmed your delivery details. If our system does not pick this up automatically, you can still proceed with your order and we will refund the VAT via your payment method manually. In this event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org stating your order number.
