Notice of Possible Delays - May 2024
Due to a period of unscheduled lab maintenance and an increase in order volume, we anticipate that some orders may take approx 3-5 working days longer than normal to pass through our UK glazing lab.

Our glazing team are working as hard as possible to ensure all orders are completed as soon possible. We're currently on schedule to return to normal service in early June.

We thank you for your patience but do of course apologise for any inconvenience caused.
 

We’re committed to ensuring orders are completed and dispatched as soon as possible. The majority of our Single Vision and frame only orders are completed and dispatched within 7-10 working days*, however this timescale can vary depending on the contents of your order and any advised delays. For transparency, we've included the following production timescale estimations (quoted in working days):-

If your order has not arrived after this period, please check with your local mailing office then contact our customer services team.

When contacting us to report non-delivery, please include your order number, name and the date of dispatch. We will send you a non-delivery form that must be completed so we can use as evidence of non-receipt in our claim with our shippers.

Please note customer's own items or reglazes are sent at the customer's own risk unless we agree otherwise in writing. We therefore cannot be held responsible should these items go missing in the postal system.
