15 Minute Time Slots For Next Working Day Deliveries
For UK mainland orders placed via Next Working Day services we mostly use DPD couriers who use the DPD Follow My Parcel service. The great thing about DPD Follow My Parcel is that on top on your standard 1 hour delivery time slot given normally, you can also keep track of your parcel on the move whilst it counts down to a final 15 minute delivery slot.
On the morning of your delivery you’ll be emailed and sent a sent a text message (so make sure you include you mobile number when you checkout) giving you information on when your order will be delivered (to the nearest hour) and a link showing you a map of the driver on his route, which will count down to your door down to a 15 minute delivery slot. So no more waiting about all day for your order to arrive.
And as an added bonus you can reply to the text or email to arrange delivery on the next day if the delivery doesn’t suit.
We despatch Monday – Friday from 9.00am to 5.00pm. As mentioned above, Next Working Day orders must be placed by 3pm to be despatched that day.

Where items on your order are out of stock the order will ship once all of the orders components become available. If you would rather not wait for the remainder to come in to stock, we advise that you place a separate order for these items.
Please note: At exceptionally busy times like Christmas or in periods of adverse weather conditions deliveries may be delayed by a day or two beyond normal timescales quoted. At these times we cannot guarantee next day delivery when selected.
If you would like us to ship to an alternative address rather than your registered billing address, simply tick the box (when you are checking out) and complete the address details.
Please Note. The Billing address must be the address your payment card is registered to. PO Box addresses may not be accepted. Unfortunately for PayPal customers we can only ship to your registered billing address. This restriction is a fraud prevention measure issued by PayPal and is beyond our control, sorry.

If your delivery country is inside the European Union then your order will be subject to VAT (Value Added Tax) at the current rate.
Unfortunately goods purchased by mail order, including internet sales, are excluded from the Government’s tax free shopping scheme. We are therefore unable to provide a VAT 407 reclaim form for goods delivered within the EU that you intend to export. For more information please visit https://www.gov.uk/tax-on-shopping/taxfree-shopping
For exports to countries outside the EU although these are exempt from VAT you may be required to pay import duties by your government, you will be notified by the courier that delivers your goods if this is the case.
Some countries (including but not limited to Norway, Switzerland and Turkey) do not impose import duties on products shipped from the EU, however in some cases you may be required to pay a local sales tax; you will be notified by the courier that delivers your goods if this is the case.
We deliver to many popular destinations such as the United Kingdom, United States, Ireland, Japan, Germany, Scandinavia and France. For a comprehensive list click here.
If your goods have either been received as damaged or are missing please contact customer services immediately, either by email CustomerCare@TheSimplyGroup.com or by calling us on 0844 567 7070.
If the goods are damaged we will need a proof of the damage, either by the item being returned to us, or in some cases an image sent via email. Customer Services they can advise you on the best course of action. Once we have verified the damage we can then rectify the situation.
