Here at BKS, we ship orders worldwide. The majority of our orders are despatched on the same working day as the order is placed, if this is not possible then it is despatched the next working day, all orders are picked and ready to send within 24 hours (subject to payment).
We send all box orders via Next Day courier who have depots all over the country. The orders are sent overnight ensuring you receive the parcel the next working day before 4pm (this excludes bank holidays). Please note that although we book all deliveries on a next day service this cannot always be guaranteed due to delays beyond our control, especially during peak times of year such as Christmas.
We recommend placing orders before 12pm to ensure the best chance at getting sent the same day. We always operate on a first come, first serve basis. This does not GUARANTEE your order will be ready to ship the same day, it entirely depends on how busy we are. As we always prioritise orders on a first come, first serve basis it will not always be possible to get your order picked before the next working day.
If you have any special delivery requests i.e. to leave the parcel with a neighbouring shop then please make sure to contact us directly so that we can add them to your order.
Unfortunately we do not offer drop shipping at this time, we only delivery direct to yourselves. If you need an alternative address such as your home or alternative store etc, we are more than happy to help. However we do not drop straight to your customers.
