Tracking Your Parcel With DPD, myHermes and Parcelforce

- DPD, myHermes and Parcelforce offer full delivery tracking.

- If your order is being delivered by DPD, you will receive an email from DPD with your tracking number and delivery date. You will then receive a text message on the day of delivery with an estimated delivery time.

- If your order is being delivered by Parcelforce or myHermes you will receive an email from them with your tracking number. Please be sure to provide an accurate email to be notified of your order. Also please check your spam folder just in case. 

- Parcelforce is a part of Royal Mail that focuses on larger parcels. Once parcels have been dispatched out of the UK, they will be passed onto their delivery partners in the delivery country. GLS is their European delivery partner.  

- All of the couriers we use require all deliveries to be signed for, so please make sure that there is someone available to sign for your delivery. If you need to leave it in a safe place, please leave a comment during checkout with the information on the requested safe place. Safe place requests cannot be guaranteed to be followed, and may be refused for some deliveries depending on the types of items ordered such as age-restricted items.
