We aim to dispatch goods within 5 days of receiving your order. We will make every effort to deliver within the time stated on our website but we will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery. If the original delivery date cannot be met, you will be contacted by Sharpham Dairy and offered the option to cancel your order.
Courier and costs
Last despatch date for Christmas delivery is the 21st December for next day delivery on the 22nd (except Scotland which is two day delivery).
Despatch will then recommence on the 27th December for next day delivery on the 28th (except Scotland which is two day delivery).
Standard Delivery timings
Our standard delivery days are Tuesday to Friday – Please note: any orders placed after 1 p.m. on a Thursday will be delivered on Tuesday of the following week.
We offer a Saturday delivery service. Order before 1.pm on Thursday and select Saturday delivery.
Once your order is dispatched, you will be notified by email. We use an overnight courier service since we don't want the cheese in particular to be in transit any longer than that. Delivery to addresses other than England, Wales and lowland Scotland may take two days.
As you know, nothing is 100% (especially when it involves roads!), and very occasionally the 'overnight' service isn't. Generally, however, there's no problem and the cheese will arrive the next day as planned.
Deliveries to more than one address
Cheese, in particular, needs to be delivered quickly. For this to be possible we need a few things from you:
An accurate delivery address – this is essential, and if an incorrect postal address is supplied we won't be responsible for any delivery problems which may follow. So it's worth taking a moment to make sure you've given us the right house number, postcode etc. And there should be someone in! So do think carefully about your delivery address.
During checkout, you can tell us a safe place where the delivery can be left – as a fail safe in case there is no-one in. Please try to keep your instructions simple, clear and brief. Please also note that if the package is left, it is at your own risk: the ideal situation is always a personal delivery address, whether this is home or workplace.
