DELIVERY & POSTAGE
Orders are processed and dispatched Monday to Friday only.
UK delivery time will depend on the type of service you select. We use Royal Mail and APC to dispatch our parcels but please note that we cannot accept responsibility for failed deliveries if no one is at home to receive them. If you are unable to accept a delivery, please be aware that it may be returned to the depot and a card left. Royal Mail guidelines state that 48HR Tracked and non-Tracked items should arrive between 2-3 working days.
We will always obtain a proof of posting. Whilst delays are frustrating and we fully sympathise, Apatchy Ltd cannot take responsibility for delays to your order once it has been dispatched.
You will receive a confirmation email no later than 24 hours after receipt of your order. We maintain real time stock levels, however during busy periods there is the possibility of some items not being available. If this happens, we will inform you in the confirmation email along with an expected delivery time. If the expected delivery time is not to your satisfaction, you will be entitled to cancel your order.
All queries and emails will be answered within 48 hours on working days.

If you are not in to receive your parcel, it may be returned to the depot for redelivery as this is a signed for service. This service is available from Monday to Thursday only.

Apatchy offers international delivery DDP as standard with DHL International Express at a flat rate of £25 (equivalent in local currency). If you would like to speak to us about international delivery, please contact us on +44 (0)1279 718133 or email us at email@example.com where we would be happy to help.
Apatchy is pleased to announce that it operates on a DDP (Delivered Duty Paid) basis. Sometimes goods may be subject to delays - due to customs or weather. The customer is responsible for providing any information required by customs to ensure the goods are cleared. In the instance of items reaching you, we cover all fees, duties and taxes to ensure the order is delivered DDP. In the instance that this reaches an area where no Sales Tax is payable, not chargeable, or is charged at a different rate, then no reduction is given for the change in Sales Tax and the price is as seen.
ROYAL MAIL STRIKES
Due to upcoming Royal Mail strikes, there will be delays to deliveries so we advise ordering early where possible. The strikes are planned for the following dates:
- TBC (2023)
Whilst there will be ‘normal’ postage days after these dates, Royal Mail expect there to be delays.
For Royal Mail 48hr, please allow for more time when ordering near the strike dates as delays are expected.
Unfortunately these delays caused by the Royal Mail strikes are beyond our control so all we can do is advise you to order early where you can.
