All orders be delivered as soon as possible, whilst we will always try to get stocked items out within 1-2 working days of order, it may take longer if products are ordered in directly from the manufacturer and if this is the case we will keep you informed of any delays.

Delivery to mainland UK is free for orders placed with a total value of £100 or over. If your order is less than £100 then a delivery charge of £6.95 will be added to your basket unless you choose to collect your order from either our Burnley or Wakefield stores.

What happens once your order is placed?

  1. We will send an email to confirm we have received your order.
  2. Next we'll send a further email to confirm that we have dispatched your order along with the tracking information to check the progress of your delivery.
  3. All orders require a signature on delivery - if you're not going to be at home, why not deliver to a work or friends address? Alternatively you can note additional delivery instructions at checkout to leave your order in a safe place whilst you are out - this is done so at your own risk.
  4. If you are out when the courier arrives, they will leave a calling card to contact them directly to arrange re-delivery. If you do not contact the couriers, they will attempt re-delivery on two consecutive days, and failing that your order will be returned to Balmers GM and a re-delivery charge will be applied.
