Shipping & delivery | Gin Box Shop
A BIT ABOUT SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
- Thank you for taking the time to look at our shipping costs. As a potentially valuable customer we like to be as transparent as we can about our shipping.
- We aren’t as big as some of the other drink oriented e-commerce sites but we try and be as competitive as we can on postage costs.
We use Parcel Force because they can offer a next day delivery service. (If you place your order with us before 12pm on any working day)
Parcelforce Standard - £6.95
Parcelforce Priority - £7.80
Parcels over a certain weight (6.5kg) and/or size will have different charges due to packaging specifics - These charges are calculated at checkout.
PLEASE NOTE that items sent by Parcelforce Standard / Priority are NOT guaranteed to arrive within estimated delivery time frame at checkout, and no compensation can be offered for items which do not arrive within this time frame, although of course we will here you out if you have a complaint... for example, if the delay is siginificant we will of course reimburse your postage or ameliorate the situation in some way.
ALL ORDERS MUST BE PLACED BY 1.30pm TO BE SHIPPED SAME DAY.
Temporary alterations to this schedule may occur at any time, for instance if we are low staffed or our courier make temporary alterations to their own shedule of collection.
Such temporary changes will be reflected in both the very top header on our home page and on the shipping calculator at checkout and as such these should be considered the single source of truth.
Please note our shipping is based on a working day delivery service. Saturday delivery is unfortunately not all that cheap for us, and we don't mark it up, so if you would like tracked Saturday delivery, it's an option, but not the cheapest one.
For example, as per the details above: a Priority order placed after 12pm on a Thursday would be processed on the Friday and best case scenario would be expected for delivery on the following Monday. This example would EXCLUDE Bank Holidays when the order would be processed on the first working day opportunity and delivered in line with this working day delivery principle.
