Delivery & Returns

Standard Delivery

Our standard delivery is a next working day service.

Note: A working day is classed as Monday to Friday. Saturdays and Sundays are not considered working days. The Next day service is an estimate not a guarantee. We will send your parcels out on a 24hr service but sometimes delays in the delivery network are unavoidable.

Please note that your order must be placed before 4:30pm to be despatched on the same day.

Extended delivery times of up to 4 days apply for a small number of UK postcodes for items posted on our inland services. This effects the following postcodes:
Scottish Highlands (2 days) – G83, GY9, AB31-56, IM (all), IV (all), KA27-28, KW0-KW14, PA20-78, PH15-99
Scottish Islands (2-4 days) – HS1-9, KW15-17, ZE (all)

This is not an exhaustive list. You may find that when you choose your delivery method, the ‘estimated delivery date’ may not reflect the delay for the above postcodes, however this is an estimated date unfortunately not a guaranteed date. Please contact sales@firstaid4sport.co.uk or call us for a confirmation.

If we deem your delayed delivery as avoidable you may be entitled to a refund of the difference of the next day premium and the standard delivery charge (if applicable) as a gesture of goodwill.

Next working day delivery has a flat fee of £5.95.

3 Day Delivery

For our 3-day delivery service, we use Royal Mail and Courier delivery services. Standard delivery usually takes up to 3 working days from the despatch date. Postage and packaging costs are dependable on the weight of the product(s). Please note that standard delivery may take longer than stated if circumstances beyond our control disrupt postal services. 3 Day Delivery does not include Special Goods or Dangerous Goods delivery methods (see Delivery Policy below for more details). Standard delivery has a flat fee of £3.96.

Free Delivery

All orders using standard delivery to the UK mainland over £60.00 will not be charged for delivery unless an alternative service is selected by the customer. Note that standard delivery excludes Special Goods, Dangerous Goods, and Aerosols.

Special Goods, Dangerous Goods, and Aerosols

Please note that the Civil Aviation Authority places restrictions on the number of aerosols that can be sent and the services that we use to send these. Aerosols cannot be dispatched by air so regrettably, we are unable to deliver these products to Northern Ireland, Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man, and Ireland. Some of our first aid kits contain aerosols in their contents so please check carefully.

If your basket contains an aerosol, your order will be sent by UPS.

If your order includes an aerosol and the parcel is returned to us due to the prohibited item, Firstaid4sport is not responsible for the delay or for refunding the postage for prohibited items. If this affects your delivery please contact us on 0808 169 9985.
