Delivery & Returns


Standard order charge is based on delivering to addresses within UK Mainland, subject to package size and weight. Should your order require additional shipping funds we will contact you via email to advise the extra charges before the funds are taken from your card or the item is dispatched. If you require delivery to an area outside of UK Mainland they will be in line with the current Royal Mail International Services price list. The timescale for delivery will be within 2 working days.

Christmas Deliveries: last orders for UK Mainland Delivery must be placed by 3pm on 19th December so that they can be delivered by Christmas Eve. We use a national courier company who will do their utmost to deliver but we cannot guarantee against major delays such as those caused by severe weather conditions.



Each order is personally handled by one of our Web Sales team. The products are sourced and then carefully packaged before being collected by our Courier (or Royal mail Worker). R Yates & Sons Ltd prides itself on delivering a high level of customer service and will try to resolve any issues that occur.
