Delivery Information

Our UK and International shipments are shared between different carriers depending on their destination and the service selected. These carriers are currently DX, DPD, EVRI, DHL and Fedex. At Supplies For Candles we ship to 100s of destination, with the aim to get your parcel to you in the most efficient, safe and secure process.

Due to the type of products we supply there are some restrictions in place, please read below to find out more information about all of our delivery methods and collection options.

Typical dispatch time for orders placed is usually 1-2 working days, there can be slight delays due to size of orders, seasonal changes and business promotions. We aim to keep our customers up-to-date when delays occur, often via the homepage of our website. Unfortunately, we cannot be held responsible for any delays once the parcel has left our warehouse.

Our delivery prices are set by our couriers and applied to cover dangerous goods, this means we have no control over the prices set.

All delivery options are based on weight, destination and type of product you are ordering, your basket will adjust to match these requirements and calculate a shipping cost for you.

Our Courier services ensure parcels are 'tracked' throughout their journey from us to you, in some instances tracking may be unavailable but we will endeavour to provide as much information as possible.

Please note that our couriers may sub-contract their deliveries, this is out of our control and is to ensure you still receive you items securely.

Late Delivery Liability

When our carriers are seasonally busy or during postal strikes or additional economic issues, it can cause delivery times to be extended. For all delivery delays outside of our control due to our carriers or postal strikes we are unable to accept liability and are therefore unable to make any refund of shipping charges where we have incurred charges ourselves from either our carrier or Royal Mail.

UK Back-Orders

If an item is not in stock, we will back order it for you. This will apply to all products, especially larger quantities of stock, this is clear displayed when selected your product size. However, you can choose to cancel the item if you would rather not wait for the back order to be sent. We ship back orders free of charge.

International Back-Orders

If an item is not in stock we may not automatically back order that item. We reserve the right to remove the item from your order and refund the cost of that item, including any applicable proportion of the overall shipping cost. If you would rather we back order the item for shipping later, we will inform you if there will be any additional shipping cost and give you the option to reconsider. Supplies For Candles is not responsible for any duties or taxes levied by customs on any International delivery.

Useful Information

Our shipping charges are weight-based, not order value based. Regardless of the value of your order, shipping will be calculated based on weight, therefore inexpensive yet heavy products may appear expensive to ship. For an estimate of our shipping prices, you can enter your country and postcode in the cart page once you've added your items to the cart, and this will show you the shipping price before you pay.
