Orders, Delivery and Returns Explained

Jim Lawrence delivery

How long will my order take? 

Our products are crafted in our Suffolk workshop. If your order is in stock we aim to dispatch it within 2 working days.

If items are not in stock and need to be manufactured, your order could be dispatched anywhere between 1-4 weeks depending on where the items are in our production cycle. 

Please refer to your order confirmation for the precise date that your order will be dispatched. Please be reassured that we will inform you if a delay is expected once your order is placed.

Please feel free to call if on a tight deadline and we will do all that we can to accommodate you.

How do I know my order has been placed? 

If you placed your order over the phone with us, our sales advisors will confirm all orders immediately via email.

If you placed an order on our website, you should receive an automatically generated order confirmation shortly afterwards.

If you require written confirmation, please let one of our advisers know and we can pop one in the post instead. If you are concerned that you have not received an order confirmation, please call us on 01473 828989 and we will resend it.

How do I pay for my order?

You can pay online using our secure payment service or call us to pay via card or BACS. If you would like to pay by cheque, please make it payable to Jim Lawrence Traditional Ironwork Ltd. We regret that we cannot dispatch any order unless payment has been received.

How much is delivery?

For all orders, with the exception of heavy duty products that require a pallet for delivery, a one-off charge of £7.50 per order is applied for UK mainland addresses, no matter how many parcels are involved, as long as the whole order leaves on the same day.

If you require part of the order to be sent ahead, then a separate amount for carriage will be charged. Different charges apply for heavy items, Highlands & Islands and International Orders. For more information, see  below.

Delivery is via a parcel dispatch company and does require a signature unless you have left specific instructions as to where you would like your parcel to be left. Simply let us know your preferred safe delivery location ahead of time and we will ensure the courier leaves it in this location for you. We are keen to help in any way we can to get your order to you as quickly and easily as possible, therefore please let us know of any special instructions that you may have regarding your delivery.
