On line purchase said order before 2 pm for immediate dispatch so was hoping for next day delivery , but as soon as I had paid get a message of busier than normal so maybe a delay which indeed there was so items arrived on the Tuesday, was hoping for weekend . Very misleading sales tactic , you should be more honest about adverts wont be using you again will go to the shop instead as more reliable Dennis O’shaughnessy

Good Morning - we are disappointed you feel the delivery times weren't satisfactory, but if you please refer to the delivery information on the website, as below, it explains why you received your delivery which was placed on Friday and delivered on Tuesday rather than the next day. I hope this information clarifies this for you. Orders placed before 2pm Monday to Thursday and 1pm Friday will be delivered next working day. Orders placed after these times will be sent the following working day. The table below is a guide to when you will receive your order based on the day and time you order it. This table relates to standard delivery and standard free delivery. Any premium delivery services or deliveries for certain areas such as the highlands may be different. Friday after 1pm Tuesday by 5:30pm
All quick and easy

Helpful Report
I ordered a bottle of graffiti remover. The product arrived promptly and was securely packed. However, the top had not been screwed on securely before despatch. As a result, some liquid had leaked out over the bottle and into the packaging. Better quality control needed!
