All our orders are shipped using Parcelforce’s 24-hour Express service. Orders placed by 15.00 Monday-Friday are usually picked up that day and delivered to you the next working day- we don’t currently offer Saturday deliveries as the cost is too prohibitive. Orders placed after 15.00 will be picked up the following working day.
If an order contains Cheese, in order to ensure it reaches you in the best condition we won’t send it out on a Friday, so it doesn’t sit at a Parcelforce depot over the weekend. We will keep it refrigerated until we pack it on Monday ready for delivery to you on Tuesday.
Elston and Son will provide you with tracking information. If you have any special delivery instructions, please write these in the Order Comments box in the checkout. Parcelforce will follow these instructions where possible. You will be able to track your drivers progress on either the website or by downloading the Parcelforce app. The app will allow you to set your delivery preferences if you will not be in to receive your parcel- we highly recommend you do this as Parcelforce cannot leave a parcel if no one is in and they have not had notification of where to leave the parcel from you.
