The pandemic continues to cause disruption to delivery networks, please bear this in mind when considering delivery timeframes.
Furthermore, we are currently running with a reduced staff in order to ensure social distancing in the workplace:
Standard delivery orders (e.g. Royal Mail 48 and free delivery options) are being dispatched on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only
Wherever possible, express delivery orders (e.g. DPD next day, Royal Mail 24) will be dispatched same day if placed before 2pm Monday to Friday
UK Delivery Charges
We have a simple and transparent scale of delivery charges.
Standard Great Britain Rates
- £3.48 for small parcels (usually Royal Mail 48)
- £6.84 for orders over approx 2kg (usually DPD)
- Free for orders over £75.00 (usually DPD)
Highlands, Islands and BT Postcodes
- £3.48 for small parcels (usually Royal Mail 48)
- £14.40 for orders over approx 2kg (usually DPD Two Day)
- Free for orders over £125 (usually DPD Two Day)
Orders containing certain cleaning fluids, chemicals and batteries and orders containing more than two aerosols will always be charged at the DPD rate for your location, because Royal Mail will not carry these items.
All rates quoted here include VAT. You will have the opportunity to review all delivery charges prior to completing your purchase on our website.
UK Delivery Times
We pride ourselves on our rapid service and aim to dispatch all orders promptly so you should receive yours within 3 working days. If for some reason your parcel doesn't arrive within 10 working days, please contact us.
If you select standard delivery, smaller orders are sent via Royal Mail 48 while orders weighing more than 2kg or worth more than £25 may be sent via DPD (a tracked service) or Royal Mail Tracked 48. Most orders are dispatched within 1 working day of being placed. Orders placed between Friday afternoon and Sunday are usually dispatched on Monday.
We also offer a fully tracked express delivery service for most UK postcodes. Express delivery orders will be sent by Royal Mail Tracked 24 or DPD (depending on size) and will usually arrive next working day if ordered before 2pm. However, if it is very important that your items are dispatched same day, you may still wish to call us to place your order. Normal express deliveries take place Monday to Friday. Note that we usually cannot dispatch same day if your order is placed after 2pm, but you are welcome to call us to check. Delivery time on the express service is usually 1 working day from dispatch.
DPD Saturday delivery is also available for most UK postcodes.
None of the delivery time frames we quote are offered as guarantees of service - they're simply good-faith estimates based on our previous experience with our chosen carriers.
We will send an email confirmation when your order is dispatched. So please make sure you give us a working email address when you checkout. Please do not give us a 'forwarding' email, as these invariably do not work because they fail the sender policy framework. If you're sure you placed an order with us but have not received a confirmation email, it is probably because you made a typo in your email address or because our messages are being caught by your spam filter. In this case, you are very welcome to contact us to double-check. If you also provide us with a mobile phone number, the courier will send you a text on the day of delivery to indicate an approximate delivery time. (This does not apply to smaller orders dispatched with Royal Mail 48 on the £2.99 rate.)
Returns & Cancellations
If for some reason we have delivered the wrong goods to you or if they are damaged or defective we will make every effort to sort the problem out. Please make sure that your returns arrive back at Physical Sports Limited in good condition. To arrange to cancel an order or for goods to be returned to us, give our sales office a call on 01943 662155 or email email@example.com

The Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 may give you certain rights to cancel your order for any reason. We are obliged to give you access to information on your right to cancel in a durable medium.
