We subsidise our postage and packing costs to keep our prices as low as possible and we offer FREE Next Day Delivery as standard on all orders over £50! For orders under £50 there is a charge of £4.95. There might be a surcharge to pay if you live in a more remote region. Packets sent by post cost £3.49.
Items sent via Next Day Delivery to addresses in the mainland UK usually arrive the following working day. Items to more remote areas may take longer.
While we typically ship orders the same day or the following working day, we are unfortunately unable to guarantee that orders will arrive the following working day. We use a next day delivery service as our standard service and subsidise the cost to provide a better service for a lower price, but unfortunately delays do sometimes occur.
We can only offer next day delivery on orders on items we currently have in stock. If your order contains a "special order item", this means we'll need to order it from a supplier and there will be a short delay in shipping it to you. Our website has live stock reporting, so you'll be able to see if an item is in stock when you order, and you'll be given a delivery estimate if not.
Yes, we'll keep you informed via email of when your order is dispatched and you'll get a tracking code which allows you to see where your parcel is. Just login and check the Order Tracking page. We're also happy to help via telephone or email if you need additional information on your order.
If your order is being sent to a home address the courier will try to deliver it on three separate days. If your order is being posted to a business address, when someone is more likely to be present during work hours, they'll only attempt delivery once, so please bear this in mind if you're having your order shipped to your workplace.
If you're not in, or don't answer the door when the courier arrives, they'll pop a card through your letter box and let you know that they've attempted delivery. You can either re-arrange delivery with the courier or collect the item directly from your nearest depot.
First of all, we'd recommend logging into your account and checking the tracking system to see where your parcel is. This will tell you whether it's been dispatched by us (we dispatch most orders on the same day, unless you have elected to have it delivered on a specific date), whether it's currently at the depot or whether it's in a van en route to your house already. The tracking system will also tell you if the courier has previously attempted delivery, or if it's already been signed for by someone else. If you think there's an issue with the delivery of your order, please contact us and we'll be more than happy to help.
We pack orders as securely as we can to minimise the likelihood of damage during transit, but sometimes parcels do get dropped by couriers en route, resulting in the odd breakage. If something in your order is damaged, please contact us with the details within 24 hours of delivery and we'll be happy to arrange collection and replacement as quickly as we can.
We have a checking system in place to ensure that customers receive the correct items, but sometimes humans make mistakes. If you've been sent the wrong item, or the wrong number of items, please drop us a line and we'll help you out as quickly as we can at no further cost to yourself. (If you want to return an item for some other reason, please see our returns information page for more information on how we can help.)
Our couriers charge us more to send items to certain more remote areas (including Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, the Scilly and Channel Islands, and certain parts of Scotland, such as the Highlands) so there is a small additional cost for delivery to these areas. Areas of the UK with an additional charge include: AB30-56, IV, HS, KA27-28, KW, PA20-49, PA60-78, PH17-26, PH30-50, ZE, IM, BT and TR21-25. There's no extra charge for deliveries to the Isle of Wight.
If your order is over £50 you qualify for our free shipping offer, but will need to pay a surcharge of £6.99. If your order is under £50, you will pay £4.95 plus a £6.99 surcharge for parcels.
We always put as much as we can into a single box to keep postage costs down, but some larger orders need to be sent as more than one parcel. In these cases, the surcharge needs to be paid on each parcel in the order, so you would pay £11.99 for each parcel included. We subsidise these costs to help keep them as low as we can.
We are able to deliver to most places. Prices for non-UK deliveries start at £12.99 and vary according to the number and size of the parcels and the delivery destination. Please see our Overseas deliveries section for more details on typical delivery charges. If your country is not listed here, we can probably still ship to your address. Please contact us with details of your intended order and we'll provide a quotation.
Yes. Unlike many other online retailers our website features live stock level information, allowing you to see which items we have in stock. When you order an item that's marked "in stock" it will usually come directly from our warehouse. Only a few items are sent directly from the supplier and aren't physically kept in our warehouse.
One or two larger products, are purchased to order, and if you order one of these items you'll see a delivery estimate for the item on the product page at the time you place your order. If you order one of these products, it may result in a short delay in the delivery of your full order. We'll keep you informed via automated email as to when your order is complete and ready for dispatch.
Swell denies any liability for any consequential loss caused by damaged or faulty items, delay in dispatch or delays by carriers. In the unlikely event of a delivery not arriving on time, any extra delivery charge will be refunded. However we cannot accept any liability involving third party contractors and would advise that no arrangements be made for installation until you are in receipt of your order.
We can deliver to almost any country. Our standard surcharges are listed below and are payable for each box in your order. If no surcharge information is listed for your country, the order will be sent via air and the cost will depend on the size and weight of the order when packed. Please contact us using our contact form or call us on +44 161 351 4700 and we will give you calculate the charges for you.
If you've purchased an item from overseas and wish to return it, you'll need to cover the cost of shipping the item to us and any return postage costs.Albania: Contact us
