Delivery & Shipping

Vintage Farmhouse Antiques delivery information 

We are continuing to dispatch your orders from Vintage Farmhouse Antiques as usual, within 1-2 working days Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays).

Deliveries may take a little longer currently, due to delays caused by driver shortages in the courier companies, due to the pandemic. We thank you for your patience and continued support, which is greatly appreciated.

    UK courier delivery flat rate £5.95 (Free when you spend over £75

    This is the actual real charge we get billed by APC for an under 1kg mail pack. We pack all items in large protective parcels and do not try to skimp on packaging. This ensures your items are delivered in one piece.

    We also use one of the larger UK courier services, as we have found them to be very reliable. Despite this no UK courier offers insurance for glass or china shipments, so we understand the responsibility of delivering your order safely is ours. That's why we don't try to ship by post or small parcels and charge a standard courier fee.

    FREE UK courier delivery when your order value exceeds £75

    We will cover the delivery costs for customers spending over £75 on goods in a single transaction and being delivered within the UK.

    We are working very hard to ensure that we are able to get orders to you as quickly as possible, while at all times maintaining social distancing and following current government guidelines to keep you, our delivery partners and us safe.

    All vintage and antiques on this site are in stock in our UK warehouse for immediate dispatch, and will usually be dispatched within 1-2 working days Monday to Friday (excludes bank holidays). We do not dispatch on weekends.

    Orders that are received before 1pm Monday to Friday  (excluding bank holidays ) will usually be dispatched the same day for delivery within 1-2 working days. This may be slower currently. Orders received over the weekend are usually dispatched on Monday.

    While most of our UK deliveries are arriving quickly, Covid-19 measures and courier company staff shortages may slow some of the courier service delivery times, so please allow a little extra time for your delivery from us. We thank you for your patience and continued support
