Shipping & Delivery

We deliver to worldwide destinations via Royal Mail.

All deliveries within the UK are free.

There is a £10 charge for deliveries to addresses outside the UK.

Orders are normally dispatched within 24 hours, Monday - Friday. All UK orders are sent using Tracked 48 service, which means you can track your package from the time of dispatch to delivery at your chosen address. We use letterbox packaging, so no signature is required for delivery.

Deliveries outside of the UK will be tracked to the point of entry to the destination country. Deliveries to Europe should take 2 - 5 days, and to the US and ROW 5 - 7 days.

We are using letterbox packaging made from recycled cardboard for all Loskey orders. This packaging is designed to be posted through the average UK letterbox, which means that it can arrive safely at your destination address without the need for someone to be at the location to sign. If the address does not have a letterbox, it will be left in a safe place.

If you are ordering in the UK, there are no additional customs, duties or taxes. However, orders delivered outside if the UK may be subject to these additional charges prior to delivery at the destination address.
