A delivery service to make your life easier
By working with our delivery partner DPD Local, we’re utilising the latest technology to make your delivery on time, securely and at your convenience. We want you to be in charge of your delivery to make sure that it is safely delivered, with the minimum of inconvenience to you.
Information you provide
Accurate information is the key to success. When ordering online, please make sure that you enter your postcode accurately. By including your mobile number as well as your email address too means we can notify you by email or text of the anticipated ‘one hour’ delivery window.
Order processing and shipping notification
We will both confirm when your order is being processed and then confirm that your package has been shipped so you will know when your bear has started their journey to their new home with you.
Convenience for you
You will not be required to wait in all day for a parcel. A personalised text message or email will be sent to you advising you of the date and time of delivery. If the date is not convenient, you can choose to reschedule delivery for a different day if required.
If you’re out for the delivery
You will receive a text message and email on the day as soon as your package is out for delivery with a ‘one hour’ delivery window.
SMS/email messages for calling card deliveries
SMS and email calling card notifications will be sent to you, providing you with speedier notifications when a calling card has been left at the delivery address.
