For more information on our Click & Collect service as well as our Fireworks stores please click here.
FREE Delivery is available to the majority of deliveries in Central England for orders over £200, and FREE delivery is available to all orders over £400 for the rest of the UK mainland. Below these two amounts the delivery is worked out based on Postcode & Order Value - To work out the cost of your delivery it is really easy, just enter your postcode in the checkout area and the 'carriage calculator' will display the price options. To qualify for delivery the minimum order value is £99.00. Remember the more you spend the less we charge for delivery, for every £100 spent we'll contribute more and you will pay less.
The cost of packaging and delivering fireworks is an expensive business due to them being classed as 'Explosives', this means we have to use specialist couriers to deliver your fireworks. To help with the cost of delivery we make a significant contribution toward the costs for you, typically orders cost well over £50 to ship out. We ask you for a contribution toward these costs dependent on the value of your order and the delivery address. Orders over £200 (for central England) and £400 (further afield, including Cornwall and Aberdeen) are shipped FREE of charge as we pay all of the delivery costs for you.

You can choose the 'Despatch Date' and we will ship the goods out that day, or the night before, and the goods will arrive within 2 working days or 5 working days dependant on your delivery postcode. You'll see this information prior to confirming your order and you'll also receive an email from us after your order is placed confirming the courier we use and the number of days it will take to arrive after your chosen 'Despatch Date'.
Please Sign for your Order. As is usual with most couriers the delivery time is not booked, and is often at a random time between 8am and 5pm. With this in mind its better if you have the opportunity to have your fireworks delivered to a business address, where there is a higher chance of someone being able to sign for them (All Deliveries must be signed for as they are classed as explosives)
Choosing a Business address for delivery is best, but its by no means essential, If you're not able to have them delivered to your place of work or a business address, and it has to be a private address, we strongly suggest that you are available to take the delivery, or if not leave very precise instructions for an alternative arrangement. For example 'leave with my neighbour', or 'leave with a specific property on the road' – You can also leave this information in the 'Notes' box in the checkout procedure and we'll pass this information on to the driver.
Failed attempts on a delivery will result in the fireworks being returned to us, in which case we have to charge again for another attempt at delivering. Along with our couriers we make every attempt to get them to you in a timely fashion and contact you where possible.
Booking deliveries for arrival on a weekend is not possible as the couriers do not deliver, only on very rare occasions. Likewise our couriers close for Christmas, so we always suggest you talk to us if you would like a delivery either just before Christmas, or in-between Christmas and New Years Eve.
Our couriers offer a very high standard of service, which is another reason for higher delivery charges. We ask them to take the upmost care with every box. You must check the cartons when the delivery is made, if there is any sign of damage please ensure you notify the driver and write this information on the delivery note very clearly before signing for the goods. Claims for damaged goods or shortfalls cannot be made afterwards if the goods have been signed for without mentioning any damage on receipt.
*there are a few postcode numbers within this range of postcodes not always covered, which vary from time to time - please use our carriage calculator for the latest information
** Sometimes the furthest ends of the UK, such as Aberdeen and the Highlands or Cornwall may require an extra day or two, our courier will always call you and confirm
