Delivery & Availability
Delivery of goods to Northern Ireland post-Brexit
Because of the current temporary measures governing the shipping of goods from mainland UK to Northern Ireland, we cannot guarantee next working day deliveries to any BT postcode.
Additionally, any large and/or bulky orders may require us to process them as if they were orders for export. This is because orders that can be shipped out via a “parcel only” carrier (e.g. DPD - maximum 25kg) are only partially effected by the measures in place, whereas orders that require shipping via carriers that deal with consignments are subject to additional customs checks.
As such, carriage prices for orders to BT postcodes should be considered estimates. If your order can be shipped as a small package, there should be no issues beyond a 1-2 days delay. If your order contains large or bulky items, we may need to cancel your order and contact you directly with a fully accurate cost covering the goods plus shipping.
We apologise wholeheartedly for this situation. We recognise that it is far from ideal and ask for patience from our customers during this difficult transition period.
NATIONAL LOCKDOWN DELIVERY INFORMATION
Superlec Direct remains open for business!
Please be aware that delivery times may be longer than expected and some products may not always be available. This is due to the extremely high demand that both ourselves and our transport partners are facing. Whilst we cannot accept any liability for delays, we are doing our best to make sure all goods are shipped and delivered to you as quickly as possible.
Click & Collect from our Middlesbrough branch continues to be available, however we require all customers to follow UK Government Covid-19 safety protocols (wearing masks, social distancing, hand sanitising etc.).
We will continue to keep all our customers informed of any changes to the above, please contact the Superlec team if you have any specific queries.
CABLE FOR NI AND ROI MARKET
Please note: A limited range of products for the NI and ROI market will take 2/3 working days to be delivered to NI postcodes and 10/14 working days for delivery to England, Scotland and Wales postcodes as these products are only stocked at our Ireland branch and will require stock transferring over to a UK branch.
