Delivery Information and Returns

Shipping And Handling 

Fireworks a notoriously difficult to ship due to their hazardous nature. Therefore shipping costs can be very high, we subsidise this as much as possible. 

1. Fireworks can only be shipped to Mainland UK addresses only. Unfortunately we do not ship to The Scottish Highlands.  Delivery usually takes place during standard business hours 9am-5pm Monday-Friday.

2. Please use an address where someone will be able to sign for your order. If possible use a business address for your delivery. Fireworks have to be signed for by someone over 18 and identification may be required. We cannot leave fireworks with a neighbour.

3. Failed Delivery Attempts: If the delivery fails due to no one being present at the premises or not old enough, our courier will usually leave a card for you to get in touch to arrange a re-delivery.  They charge us for each re-delivery and we will pass this charge to you, delivery costs us an estimated £40-60.

4. Delivery Charges: This will be calculated based upon order value and the delivery postcode. Please use our delivery estimator located in the cart section.
