These are the standard delivery details for Attwoolls. Please read these carefully as they contain all the information regarding our delivery policy. If there are any queries regarding this policy then please get in touch with us by using our contact pages.
Delivery will be FREE FOR ORDERS OVER £100. We offer Free next day delivery (Monday to Friday), so long as orders are received by mid-day, and are being delivered to mainland UK destinations. If you live in certain locations we cannot deliver next day (2 day service only). Items must be in stock and available.
Processing your order
If we receive your order before 12.00 mid-day Monday to Friday, we try our utmost to process it that day and courier it to you that evening for delivery the following day. There are two exceptions to this; for orders processed on Friday mornings, delivery will take place the following Monday (excluding Bank Holidays). All orders placed after mid-day on a weekday will not be processed until the following working day. Orders processed on a weekend day will be processed and dispatched on the next working day. Our couriers collect from us at 3.00 p.m. every week day afternoon and deliver between 9.00 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. the following working day.
If you order an item that is temporarily out of stock, clearly it will not be processed within 24 hours. In these instances we will inform you as soon as possible that the item is not in stock and advise the date we expect it to be back in stock or, we will suggest a suitable alternative item that is in stock. If the item will not be back in stock at a time that suits you, you are always at liberty to cancel your order for a full refund. If you wish to discuss your order with one of our Website Representatives at any time please call 01452 742233 and we will be happy to assist you.
We use DPD to deliver the majority of our parcels. As part of the service we can give you tracking information, and if you wish you can provide us with a mobile phone number and DPD will send you a text on the morning of delivery giving you an estimated time of arrival. There is no extra charge for this service. We cannot send all of our parcels by DPD - if the parcel is over 1 metres long or over 30kg it has to be sent by Nightfreight, who do not offer tracking. We also use APC for a number of our parcels, they currently do not offer a tracking service. We will notify you who will be delivering your parcel.

Our courier will not normally leave a parcel at an address unless it can be signed for. We can ask them to leave the parcel with a neighbour if you need us to – please add to the comments on your order if this is the case. If there is nobody at the address when the courier arrives they will leave a calling card asking you to call the local depot to arrange an alternative delivery time and date. All the contact information will be on the card left by the courier.
