Due to restrictions on sending alcohol abroad we do not deliver outside of the UK.
Through the Royal Mail services we use we are able to deliver to all UK destinations including:
Scotland, Offshore Scotland, Northern Ireland, Channel Islands, Isle of Wight.
Please note that the Royal Mail is currently experiencing delays throughout its network due to the pandemic as well as a much larger volume of items being sent through their network at this time. This is resulting in longer delivery times than usual, so if your ‘Toast’ is for a special occasion within the next 7 days, we would strongly recommend using the 24HR service or, for really urgent deliveries needed in the next couple of working days, the Guaranteed Next Day Special Delivery service.
We currently offer 3 postage options through Royal Mail.
All orders are on a TRACKED service and a tracking reference is automatically emailed to the purchaser where you can see the progress of the delivery. As part of this tracking service, you will also receive an automated email notification when the item has been successfully delivered to your recipient. We cannot offer refunds or compensation if Royal Mail are unable to deliver to the address given and it is the responsibility of the purchaser to manage the redelivery/post office collection in these rare situations.
If you provide an incorrect delivery address for your recipient and the item therefore can’t be delivered, it will automatically be returned to us approx 2 weeks later. At this point we can offer a refund for the value of the drinks or agree a credit to use against sending another ‘Toast’ out to the correct address.
If the ‘Toast’ can’t be delivered because nobody was available at the delivery address to take receipt of the box, a card will be left by Royal Mail with instructions of how to arrange either a re-delivery or a collection from the nearest Royal Mail depot.
If you have used the Tracked 24 or Tracked 48 services and your ‘Toast’ has not been delivered after 5 working days from the dispatch date, you can call Royal Mail with your tracking information on 0345 795 0950 to find out what is happening to the item.
All orders placed before 12 noon on a normal working day (Mon-Fri) will be produced and dispatched the same day. Orders placed after 12 noon on a normal working day (Mon-Fri) will be produced and dispatched the next normal working day (Mon-Fri). Please therefore note that orders placed after 12 noon on a Friday will not be dispatched until the following Monday.
A tracking service is provided with all orders including an automated email notification when the item has been successfully delivered to your recipient. Please note that our gift boxes do not fit through a standard letterbox and will therefore require someone to be at the delivery address to take receipt of the item. You can request the item is left in a safe place or with a neighbour, the details for which can be provided in the delivery notes box at checkout.
