Most of our products are supplied direct from stock and will be delivered by our couriers - UK Mail and The Royal Mail 1st Class Post. ChristmastimeUK™ aim to achieve delivery of 98% of its parcels in the United Kingdom within 48 hours.
From experience, we do realise that carriers come under immense pressure in the build up to Christmas, especially in the London area, and from time to time there are unavoidable delays. Usually, this only means a further day and in the worst scenario, three days. It is worth remembering this problem, if you are trying to order a product to be delivered to you by a certain date in the run up to Christmas. We will make every effort to deliver orders within the delivery option requested at the time that the order was placed. However, we cannot guarantee this and we will not accept responsibility if your order is delivered outside this time.
ChristmasTime UK™ realise that if you have ordered a "premium delivery service" with us, that it is our responsibility to get the goods to you within the selected time frame. If the goods fail to be delivered within the allocated time, ChristmasTime UK™ will refund the full amount paid.
All goods ordered will be delivered within 30 days of receiving the order. If we cannot deliver within this time, ChristmastimeUK™ will inform you and arrange another time for delivery. If another time cannot be agreed ChristmasTime UK™ will offer you a refund.
We always send you an email to the address that you submitted during the order process to inform you of the despatch of your goods. This will contain a consignment number which can be used to track your parcel.
You can pay by American Express, Visa or Master Card uring SagePay or PayPal or in some cases by cheque.

During your purchase your information security is assured by SagePay and Pay Pal.
In order to offer you an efficient service, we need to collect some information from you. We need your name and address to know where to send your order and your credit/debit card details, including card number and expiry date in order to obtain payment for the goods that you have ordered.
