Delivery Information

At Little Cherry we know how important it is to receive your parcels quickly and efficiently, especially when working to a deadline such as a party. To keep things simple, we offer a choice of Royal Mail (for smaller orders) or Standard Large Parcel service (for orders over 3kg) and a Next Working Day tracked courier service if you need your order in a hurry. All our charges are based on the weight of your order and your delivery address. Orders sent by Next Working Day are tracked and will require a signature.

We dispatch all orders as quickly as possible and our aim is to package all orders received by 12 noon on the same day, ready for dispatch. This will not always be possible during very busy periods but we guarantee that all orders are dispatched within 2 working days. Orders placed with our Next Working Day service can be placed up to 1pm and will be dispatched on the same day for delivery on the next available working day (Monday - Friday).This service can also be used if you want a delivery to arrive on a specific day (not weekends!) Just add your preferred day to the comments section at the checkout.

We try to keep our delivery costs to a minimum and they do include postage, packing materials and VAT. We do not subsidise postage by increasing the price of our goods.
We also keep the important issue of packaging at the forefront of our mind and none of our products are over-packaged. We package your products in recyclable boxes We use recyclable and biodegradable materials inside our boxes such as cornstarch protective chips.

We do also reuse protective packaging and boxes that we are recycling from deliveries into us (which may contain plastic bubblewrap or polystyrene chips but better to reuse than throw away!).  Please do your bit and recycle all packaging once you have received your goods.

Deliveries inside the UK

Standard Royal Mail is charged depending on the weight of your order, as follows:

  • Very small and light orders (under 200g) start from only £2.95

  • Parcels over 3kg in weight will be sent on a Standard Large Parcel service
  • FREE UK mainland shipping (excludes Highlands and offshore locations) is available on orders over £200

  • We will deliver your parcel on the following working day. There is also a Saturday delivery option. Standard Next Day Orders placed after 1pm on Thursday and before 1pm on Friday will be delivered on the following Monday.

  • This service is not currently available for the Scottish Highlands and Islands. 

Please ensure that you are available to take delivery of your items as we require a signature on receipt of goods for ALL deliveries sent by courier unless you have specified a safe place. Our couriers are happy to leave your parcel in a safe place (pop a note in the comments section and we will inform our couriers of your preference).  If this is not possible, why not have it delivered to your work address or to your neighbour? We do not accept responsibility for late delivery if your parcel cannot be delivered due to nobody being available to sign for it. Couriers will leave a card if they have been unable to leave the parcel in a safe place and you will need to rearrange delivery direct with the courier company. We are also unable to accept liability for late delivery due to circumstances beyond our control such as severe weather or heavy traffic congestion.

*Deliveries outside of UK mainland locations will be charged at a higher rate.

Deliveries outside the UK

We are happy to supply countries outside of the UK but are unable to take responsibility for goods in transit. Your delivery may also be subject to customs charges over which we have no control, and which must be borne by you. All deliveries are tracked from collection to delivery for peace of mind - once your order has been dispatched, we will email your tracking number and details about where you can track your parcel.
Although our International Couriers are very reliable, they do not guarantee delivery times. Delivery outside the UK normally takes 3 - 5 days.
Our International Delivery Tariff is split into three zones, as follows:

  • Zone One – Republic of Ireland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Denmark, France, Germany and Monaco.
  • Zone Two – Italy, Portugal, Greece, Corsica, Spain and Balearic Islands
  • Zone Three – Austria, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland

For deliveries outside of these zones please contact us for a quote.

Customs Information

When ordering goods from Little Cherry for delivery outside of the European Union, you may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied once the package reaches your country. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from Little Cherry, you are considered the importer and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods.

Your privacy is important to us and we know that you care about how information about your order is used and shared. We would like our international customers and customers dispatching products internationally to be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.

Also, we may provide certain order, delivery and product information to our international carriers and such information may be communicated by the carriers to customs authorities in order to facilitate customs clearance and comply with local laws.If the order is a gift, the package is marked "Gift" but the cost of the item is still stated on the customs form. Customs authorities require us to state the value of the gift item directly on the package.

For further information, please contact your local customs office.

Delivery times are based on orders being received before 12 midday. Orders received after midday will normally be processed for shipping on the following working day. Working days are Monday to Friday and exclude all local and national holidays (everybody deserves a holiday!).

We pride ourselves on our quality of service and keep our customers informed every step of the way, so please don't hesitate to give us a call if you require any assistance at all.

Returns Policy

We hope that you are fully satisfied with your order but you can return it to us if not. We do offer what is effectively a FREE sample service for most of our tableware range as returns of these items can be expensive and it is not very eco-friendly to transport goods up and down the UK! Please use this service if you wish to check items before placing an order.

Under the Consumer Contracts Regulations (June 2014) you have the right to cancel your order for a full refund. We are sorry but we are unable to refund postage and packing costs, unless goods are deemed to be faulty (not fit for purpose).

Unless you notify us within fourteen days of receipt we are not obliged to accept a return of unwanted or incompatible goods, except where they are faulty. We reserve the right to offer a replacement of faulty goods. We will not refund goods which are not faulty after the fourteen day period.You must return goods to us complete with all relevant packaging and seals intact, in re-saleable condition, at your own cost. This does not affect your statutory rights.To ensure goods reach us safely we advise you to use recorded delivery and arrange insurance against loss or damage. We cannot accept liability for returned goods that are lost or damaged in transit.

All refunds will be made within 14 days of us receiving notice of cancellation and return of the goods.
