Delivery & Returns

Estimated Delivery Dates

Most delivery options will show an estimated delivery date at the checkout. Whilst the vast majority of orders arrive by their estimated delivery date, please be aware that we, and our couriers, do sometimes experience unforeseen delays. The delivery estimate shows your most likely delivery date but it is not guaranteed.Please treat your delivery estimate as an estimate, not as a guarantee.

General Information

Please be aware all Express Courier orders require a signature (or a photograph since COVID-19) upon delivery (unless you have given a safe place instruction for it to be left at your own risk). If there is no one in to take delivery and a safe place has not been selected, your parcel may be dropped off a local Pick-Up Shop and you will need to collect it from there. If a Pick-Up Shop is not available, a re-delivery will be usually be attempted the next working day. If your parcel cannot be delivered or is not collected from a Pick-Up Shop, it may be returned to us. If the order is returned to us, we will incur a return delivery charge and we reserve the right to deducted this from any refund due to you.

Small parcels, 4Kg and under can be sent to Northern Ireland with Royal Mail.

Please be aware if you have no means of off loading the pallet/s (e.g. a forklift truck) the driver is only permitted to off load the whole pallet/s using a pump truck and tail lift to the threshold of the delivery address.



If you are purchasing bags of feed, rather than bales of bedding or chops, we may be able to fit more onto a pallet than the website will allow. If you wish to order more than 20 bags, please call us to place the order. If you order online and are charged for more pallets than are required, we will refund you any overpaid delivery charge.
