As we are closed on Sunday, we are unable to process any online paint orders we may receive then until our return on Monday. Therefore those orders will have an expected delivery date of 2-3 working days from the date of processing (which would be Monday).
Cutoff time: In order to qualify for Next Working Day Delivery (delivery guaranteed before 12pm), all orders must be placed by 1pm.
Please note that paints are bespoke products and mixed to order, so they require a signature on delivery. Paints cannot be left in porches/by garages/by front or back doors etc…
Orders containing different paint brands or paints along with other kinds of products can only be shipped via Royal Mail. These orders take longer time to be fulfilled because products are shipped from different locations before being dispatch to the final destination. We cannot guarantee a specific delivery time for these orders.
