Deliveries & Returns Section


The following Terms and Conditions relate only to new customers registering online. If you are an existing customer, please sign in to view the Terms & Conditions that relate to your own account.

We have a range of delivery options to suit you - just tell us where and when you want your items and we'll do our very best to get them to you.


We can deliver to your home, your office, or to a friend, relative or next-door neighbour. If ordering online you can set up an alternative delivery address. If ordering by post just write on the coupon "Please deliver to" and the alternative name, address and post code. If ordering on the phone tell our advisor and they will take the details from you. We have the right to refuse to deliver to a third-party address.

If you order online and select standard delivery, you may see a myHermes ParcelShop delivery option. ParcelShop is a group of convenience stores (like Spar or Londis) who have signed up with Hermes to offer this service. ParcelShop accepts the parcel for you and holds it until you are ready to collect.


You can choose how quickly you would like to receive your items. Before you commit to buy, we'll let you know the delivery charge for your order. We add the charge to each order you place, even if you place multiple orders in one day and receive your items in the same parcel. The delivery times below assume that the items are in stock. It may take longer for some items to arrive - like heavy furniture, large TVs, personalised items or things marked with an asterisk * in the catalogue, which are sent directly by the suppliers. They will need a valid daytime contact number for delivery.

Standard Delivery

We aim to deliver your items in 3-5 days.

Next Day Delivery

We can offer Next Day Delivery on orders placed up to 9pm in certain areas depending what you are ordering and your chosen delivery address. If you order online, we calculate the order cut-off time for you when you enter the checkout. If ordering by phone, just ask the advisor for the details. If ordering before noon on Saturday, you'll receive your delivery on Sunday. If ordering before noon on Sunday, you'll receive your delivery on Monday. If ordering after the cut-off, you'll receive the delivery a day later. Orders placed on a bank holiday weekend will generally be delivered on Tuesday. For more about deliveries around Easter and Christmas, please check our website or give us a call.

Nominated Delivery

This allows you to choose a day and a preferred time slot for your delivery. You can choose Morning (up to 1pm) or Afternoon delivery. We'll make every effort to deliver in the timeslots but cannot guarantee this.

Sunday Delivery

We offer Next Day and Nominated Delivery on a Sunday.

Direct Express Delivery

If you order online we may be able to offer this service for items sent directly to you from our supplier. If you select this option the supplier will aim to deliver your items within 2-3 working days if you order before 5pm. If you order after this time delivery will be 3-4 working days.

We make every effort to deliver goods on the day we specify. But we cannot guarantee delivery on that day nor can we accept any liability for out of pocket expenses, costs, losses or any other expenses due to failed or late delivery.

Supplementary delivery charges - Expensive or larger items may cost more to deliver. Next to these items in the catalogue, you'll see a symbol showing the delivery price.

Out of stock items - If you order an item that is out of stock we may send you your second choice item or a carefully selected alternative of equivalent quality and price.

Missing items - In most cases, orders you place will appear on your next statement, if you haven't received an item that appears on it please let us know as soon as possible. We'll assume that you've received an item unless you tell us within 56 days of the original order date.


Need to return something? Here's some helpful information.

Before returning an item, please read about returns in the "Your rights" section.

Please complete the returns part of the advice note that came with your order. This helps us understand why you are returning the item and helps us provide your refund quickly.
