Please bear in mind that we have no control over the delivery of orders once they have been handed to our Couriers, and at this busy period delivery delays may occur. We encourage you to order well in advance to avoid disappointment!
As a small business we have limited order dispatch days between Christmas and New Year, and Priority Delivery will not be available. We re-open fully from the 2nd of January 2024.
We use Royal Mail and DHL.
Royal Mail deliver Monday-Saturday (Saturday for most locations).
DHL standard service delivers Monday - Friday. Some special services are available, please email us for more information.
STANDARD DISPATCH - As we're currently in a promotional period, our standard orders are dispatched within 2-3 working days of placing your order.
STANDARD DELIVERY - These orders go out on a standard delivery service with our delivery partners and this can take 2-3 working days.
PRIORITY DISPATCH - Priority orders are dispatched within 1 working day of placing your order. These orders are prioritised by our processing team and providing they are placed before 12pm go out on the same day.
PRIORITY SHIPPING - These orders are sent on the fastest postage option available to use - 1-2 working days. Please bear in mind this is not a guaranteed next day delivery service, but will be prioritised through the postal network and will arrive sooner than the standard shipping options.
Please note: Our delivery partners offer services as a guide and not a guarantee, Mabel & Fox cannot be held responsible if we have dispatched within our time frames, but our delivery partners have not met the advised time frames.
Please keep in mind that our shipping timeframes are approximate. We cannot be held responsible for delays with our couriers - it is simply outside of our control. We rarely experience delays with our couriers, as we opt for a more premium service, but if you are experiencing difficulty then please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our STANDARD 48 hour delivery service is £4.95, or free on orders over £100.
Our PRIORITY service (24 hour and prioritised during processing) is £7.95.
Please note that our delivery partners, in some case, will charge surcharges to deliver to certain areas that they do not classify as mainland UK. For example: Highlands and Islands. This cost will be passed on to the customer to cover and your order will not be dispatched until the additional postage fees are covered.
Yes you can! Our delivery partners do this slightly differently, so please see the following for how to track your order:
Royal Mail - Once your order has been picked, packed and fulfilled you will receive a dispatch email from us. Royal Mail will email you with your tracking information and you can check your delivery status using the information they provide. Here you can chose from various options to ensure you receive your order safely. Please note that your tracking may not show it is moving until the first scan in their network (normally that evening).
DHL - Once your order has been picked, packed and fulfilled you will receive a dispatch email from us. This will contain your tracking information and you can follow the delivery progress. On the day of the delivery, you should receive an email and text from them giving you a time window and redelivery options should you not be available to accept your order.
Please note: due to the volume of orders leaving our warehouse every day, we are unable to individually track every order. Please contact us on email@example.com for further support.
When a pre-ordered product is listed on our website it will clearly be marked as ‘pre-order’ and will have an estimated time frame for when we expect stock to come in.
Please note that we will always attempt to keep ETAs as accurate as possible, but ultimately it is an estimated time of arrival for the stock and not a guarantee that it will be in by then.
Please note we have a separate delivery timeframe for all made to order and furniture orders. These are estimated timeframes - we are not in control of these dispatch timeframes as they are dispatched from 3rd parties. Please ensure you are comfortable with these timeframes before placing your order as they can be subject to delays.
We aim to be as transparent as possible with our shipping rates, so if you're wondering why our shipping charges are what they are, hopefully the following will explain.
Due to the size of our changing mats our courier choices are limited, which does mean unfortunately they are more expensive to send than you may think. We cannot be as competitive with our postage charges as the big retail giants - they receive preferential shipping rates with couriers due to the high volumes they send.
Our postage fee of £4.95 goes towards the overall cost of shipping and packaging, but does not cover this entirely.
Here at Mabel & Fox we are trying to our bit for the environment. So your order may arrive in recycled boxes from our own suppliers/deliveries. Please let us know if you would prefer a plain, unbranded box. We also use paper/card envelopes, recycled packing void and a recycled bubble wrap alternative. We encourage all of our customers to reuse these items too, or if this is not possible to recycle them.
We require a mobile phone number to be entered during checkout, this is for the purpose of enabling our delivery partners to notify you of when you can expect your order to be delivered.
Please be aware: We are unable to redirect orders once items have been dispatched. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the delivery address is correct before making payment. Mabel and Fox cannot take responsibility for a parcel going missing or being returned to sender (our warehouse) due to incorrect details being entered during check out.
Please be aware that delivery times do not factor in any possible delays caused by payment authorisation or pending payments.
You will be sent your tracking information once your order has been dispatched. Please note that it can sometimes take until the next day before tracking is shown, so don’t be alarmed if there is nothing to see at this early stage. It is the customers responsibility to use this to track the progress of their parcel and make themselves available at the time of delivery. If a delivery is unsuccessful, then there are delivery options available on the tracking link provided by our delivery partner.
In the circumstance that a delivery is unsuccessful and returned to the depot, it is the customer’s obligation to collect the order before it is returned to the sender. Our couriers will inform you of your next steps and there will be more delivery options available on the tracking link provided to you by our delivery partner. Please note: the cost of re-shipping an order is the responsibility of the customer. At this stage you have the option to cancel your order too, but any refund will be for the products only and not the cost of shipping.
