Make sure to place your orders on or before December 15th to ensure timely delivery with our standard shipping option in time for Christmas.

We aim to keep our delivery costs as low as possible, whilst still offering a very speedy and reliable Standard Delivery Service. We also offer various delivery options to meet the need for more urgent and time specific delivery.
STANDARD UK DELIVERY SERVICE: Our warehouse team are very efficient and we aim to dispatch from our warehouse the same or very next working day. Therefore, our Standard UK service offers a timely FREE option. However, a specific delivery date is not guaranteed and parcels may take longer to arrive during busy times.
NEXT DAY UK DELIVERY SERVICE**: Our Premium UK delivery service is very fast but does not have a guaranteed dispatch or delivery date. Orders received before 2pm, Monday to Friday, will be dispatched the same working day for delivery the next working day. Royal Mail 24 hour Tracked, or Parcelforce 24 hour for larger parcels, services are used. A cost effective alternative to Express Delivery for a speedy service, but where a Next Day delivery is not critical.
Please note: Orders received before 2pm on a Friday will be delivered the following Monday (excluding bank Holidays); orders received after 2pm on Friday and over the weekend would be dispatched on the following Monday for delivery on Tuesday.
It is important to note that customers living outside the UK may incur local taxes and import duties, which may involve slight delays. The customer is solely responsible for the payment of any of these additional charges that may be imposed. These local fees are not included on the Spotty Otter invoice.
* We aim to achieve our Next Day Services to most areas of the UK. However, this cannot be guaranteed to the Scottish Highlands and Islands, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly and the Channel Islands, which may take slightly longer. Your order will be prioritised and dispatched on our Express Delivery Services, and therefore you will receive your item much faster than with our standard service. However, delivery cannot be guaranteed to be the next working day.
** If Next Day Delivery is booked after Midday on a Friday, over a weekend or bank holiday, or during any announced Christmas closing dates, parcels will be dispatched on the next working day.
*** Should for any reason the effective cost of dispatching your order exceed significantly the delivery fees charged to you, Spotty Otter reserves the right to contact you to discuss the matter and on some very rare cases cancel your order.
