G&T's Original Warehouse Delivery Information - Our Carriers and Delivery Times

We offer a range of delivery options, depending on the product you're buying. Find out more by clicking on the links below.

Delivery Options

Standard Delivery

Smaller Items / Low Value Orders

For smaller items or low value orders we usually use Royal Mail where possible. Second Class or First Class postal options are available when checking out. Please note there is no guarantee of delivery time with First and Second Class, so if guaranteed next day delivery is required, please use Royal Mail Special Delivery or one of our next day courier services.

Larger Items / High Value Orders

Large items or high value products are sent with one of our trusted couriers. We use Parcelforce and APC, and these orders will usually arrive within two business days.* Some products with extra large dimensions or weights may take slightly longer.

*Extended delivery times may apply to outlying areas/offshore destinations.

Express Delivery

Need your item next day? We offer next business day delivery to England, Wales and parts of Scotland, excluding Highlands and Islands. If next business day delivery is available for your order, it will be offered to you at the checkout. We also offer next day morning delivery if you require your goods urgently. Please note these services exclude weekends. Please note, next day delivery may not be available for products with extra large dimensions or weights.

Due to Coronavirus, there maybe delays on these services, with some parcels taking an extra day or two to arrive. Please note that we work with several courier companies to deliver products to you, and whilst they are doing their very best to make all deliveries on time, their 24 hour guarantee does not apply at the moment, as a result of the current pandemic.

Premium Timed / Weekend Delivery

As well as a next day delivery option, we also offer next day AM or PM delivery and pre-10am or pre-9am to most UK mainland destinations if your parcel has to be there for the start of the day. Please note these services exclude weekends. Saturday or Sunday courier delivery is available for an extra fee to most UK mainland destinations. Please contact us if you require any of these delivery options. We do not process and ship orders during weekends, so to get your order delivered during the weekend please refer to our order cut-off times below. Please note, timed and weekend delivery may not be available for products with extra large dimensions or weights.

Due to Coronavirus, these services are either suspended or have revised time guarantees.

Same Day Dispatch Cut-off Times

We aim to process and ship your order on the same working day. We do not process and ship orders during weekends or bank holidays.

Order Cut-Off Times (Weekdays)

  • 1:00pm - APC or Parcelforce
  • 4:00pm - Royal Mail

Orders placed after 4pm on a Friday or over the weekend will be dispatched on the Monday. Delivery services exclude weekends and bank holidays so please take this into account when placing your order.

Please allow time for your order to be completed to ensure payments are fully authorized before the cut-off times. Whilst we endeavour to adhere to these times, we may require slightly longer during busier periods. We will notify you if there is going to be a substantial delay in us being able to fulfil your order.

Delivery services are subject to availability in your area. If you are unsure, please contact us and we will be pleased to help you.

Text Message and Email Delivery Updates

The most common problem with home shopping is receiving the goods. We want our customers to enjoy shopping with us, and are pleased to offer email and SMS delivery updates on the majority of our delivery services.

Royal Mail Tracked™ services include an email and / or a SMS on the morning of delivery, to let you know that your goods will be out for delivery that day.

Our Parcelforce delivery services include email and SMS dispatch confirmation, another SMS on the day of delivery, and a final SMS with a 1 hour timeslot informing you when they will be delivering. The SMS messages are interactive, meaning from the text message you can opt to reschedule delivery, have your parcel left at your local Post Office, or have the parcel left with a neighbour. No need to wait in all day!

Delivery Charges

The delivery cost is calculated based on the weight of your basket. Typically orders below 2kg are sent with Royal Mail, with orders over 2kg sent courier. Certain items can only be sent with a courier due to their dimensions or value.

Royal Mail postal charges start from £1.69 for large letters and £3.99 for packets, whilst APC and Parcelforce Courier delivery charges start from £8.99 for UK Mainland deliveries. Non-UK Mainland addresses will incur a surcharge if your purchases have to be sent via courier. Please see below.
