TCM Own Transport Deliveries

Our last delivery day for our own transport network is Thursday 21st December.

Please note: Thursday 21st December local delivery time is: 08:00 am to 13:30pm.

Courier Network Deliveries

Our last day of courier dispatch is Wednesday 20th December.

Due to courier volumes during this time of year, it is very difficult to guarantee a pre-Christmas delivery for orders placed during this period and shipped via our courier network, we recommend planning & placing orders well in advance of our last courier dispatch day.


Delivery Information

Once your order is placed we will endeavour to pack and ship your order the very same day (if ordered before 12pm) with next working day delivery as standard. 

We ship all UK mainlaind orders via a next working day service. On the rare occasion that we're out of stock of an item or it is special order from one of our suppliers we will notify you as soon as we have received your order to advise lead times and delivery date - you of course then have the right to a refund if the advised delivery date is unsuitable. We use a next day service as standard on all orders, however we cannot guarantee your order will be delivered the next working day as we have to rely on our courier partners (if outside of our free local delivery area) to complete delivery, sometimes unforseen issues can be out of our control. 


Delivery Times

All orders are shipped via next day delivery if ordered before 12pm. This applies to stocked items only. Some items may experience lead times of 2-10 working days if the items are not in stock. We will advise upon receipt of order the approximate lead times, if any items are not in stock. Alternatively, please feel free to call us if you need an accurate lead time prior to placing your order.
