Delivery Details & Costs

Lord & Butler Model Railways processes and ships orders 5 days per week throughout the United Kingdom only using Royal Mail and leading couriers*. 

Delivery to any mainland UK destination should be a maximum of 2-3 working daysǂ after an order is placed, depending on stock availability. Please allow an extra working day delivery for deliveries outside of the UK mainland or Scottish Highlands (includes Northern Ireland, Channel Islands, Scottish Islands, etc).  We will generally try to ship consignments on the same working day for orders placed before 12.00pm.

All deliveries are sent using Royal Mail Parcel Services, on a “signed for” service, at fixed costs (see "Delivery Costs).

On very rare occasions, Lord & Butler Model Railways may choose to use a third-party courier for orders of excessive weight and this service may incur an extra charge.  This scenario is extremely unlikely.

If you not received your parcel within 5 working days please contact our customer service department. Please note Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays (in relevant EU countries) are not working days so please allow for this before contacting us.

You will be required to sign for your parcel when it is delivered. If the order contact (or no suitable recipient) is not present at the requested delivery address when the shipment arrives, the delivery agent should leave a card for you to arrange an alternative delivery date or collection from the nearest depot.

If for any reason you have a query regarding the delivery of your order, please email our customer services department or call +44 (0) 29 2066 7225.

Please be aware that customer service representatives are English speaking only. Please remember to include your Order Number (if known), your full name and postcode when corresponding by email.
