Delivery

 

How long does delivery take?

We guarantee that item(s) ordered before 3pm on weekdays will be dispatched the same day. If you place your order upon a weekend, then your goods will be dispatched on the next available working day.

There are two shipping methods available:

  • UK Mail - This is a guaranteed next working day delivery service
  • Royal Mail 1st Class Recorded Delivery - Although Royal Mail state that delivery can take anything up to ten working days; we generally find these orders are received within 1-2 working days

International orders generally take 5-7 days though we can express the order for an additional charge. Please e-mail us at [email protected] for further details.

Disclaimer: In the exceptionally rare case that your next day delivery has been delayed though no fault of our own Magicbox may refund the delivery charges depending on the circumstances. This decision is at the discretion of the management. Due to the fact that even though these services state next day, Magicbox do not guarantee this fact, since the guarantee is held by the shipping company and the actual delivery of this item is out of our hands once it has left the warehouse.

 

How much is delivery

We offer free guaranteed next working day delivery on all orders over £40. This applies to UK mainland orders only, placed before 3:00PM on a working day. Orders under £40 are charged at £3.75 for Royal Mail First Class Recorded Delivery or £5.00 for a guaranteed next working day service. The postage for International orders is automatically calculated on line and varies depending on the size and weight of the items ordered. Simply add the item(s) to your basket proceed to the checkout and select your country. Or feel free to e-mail us at [email protected]
