Can I change or cancel an order?

Once your order has been accepted into our warehouse we are unable to make any changes as we want you to receive your order as soon as possible, therefore we process all orders through our warehouse immediately which makes it very hard to change the order once you’ve placed it and it has been accepted.

However, you can cancel your order within 30 minutes of receiving your order confirmation.

The quickest way to cancel would be via “My Orders” section on the website and choose the order you wish to cancel.

Alternatively call our Customer Service team on 0330 900 2200 Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm. We do not recommend using email to do this.

If your order has already been dispatched, and cannot be cancelled, please return to us, following our Returns procedure. See “How to return an item” for details on how to do this.
