Shipping & Returns
Shipping Returns and Courier Costs
At James Hargreaves Clearance, we understand the importance of fast and affordable shipping. That's why we offer FREE & FAST standard parcel shipping* on orders over £50 within mainland Great Britain.
For heavy or bulky items, we have a TPN Pallet shipping fee to ensure your order is delivered securely. Additionally, items marked as fragile will incur a £14.99 shipping fee for added protection during transit.
To provide transparency, all shipping fees will be clearly shown on the checkout page after you enter your shipping address.
For next day deliveries, please note that the cut-off time is weekdays at 2pm. Orders placed over the weekend will be processed on the following weekday. Depending on the size of the products in your order, we work with different carriers such as Royal Mail Tracked service (24hr and 48hr), FedEx (24hr and 24hr specified daypart), and the Pallet Network (24hr) to ensure prompt delivery.
On average, orders should arrive at most locations within 2-3 working days, with many arriving on the next weekday if your order is placed before noon. Please be aware that we do not process orders over the weekend or on public holidays. We believe in giving our team time to rest and recharge, so they can provide you with the best service possible.

If you have any questions or concerns about shipping, please don't hesitate to reach out to our customer service team. We're here to help ensure your order arrives in a timely manner and in perfect condition.
*Please note that our definition of a standard parcel is an item or items that can be sent by courier and weigh under 20kg. These items should also not be fragile, as additional shipping fees may apply for fragile items.
