What should I do if my order isn't delivered? 

We're still working on a 3-5 working day delivery time frame but we're experiencing some delays with couriers, so it may be slightly longer. We are in regular contact with all organisations in the supply chain and will notify you as soon as possible, if we are unable to fulfil an order.
