  • Delivery Times

    As delivery times vary depending on where you are across the world we thought it would be helpful to show below the different timings by region:

    Location Delivery estimates
    United Kingdom2 to 3 working days/ Next day delivery*
    Europe4 to 7 working days/ 1 to 2 days express
    USA and Canada5 to 10 working days/ 2 to 3 days express
    Rest of World7 to 10 working days/ 2 to 4 days express

    * If your address is in a remote part of the United Kingdom e.g Highlands and Islands, then please add an extra day to the delivery times quoted.

    Please note that during periods of exceptional demand e.g Sales and Promotions, particularly when these coincide with UK public holidays, there may be some delay to the timings quoted. We endeavour to minimise these delays and keep customers informed where there are exceptional delays.

  • Where is my order?

    Once you have placed your order and received a confirmation email, we aim to ship within two working days, though during periods of exceptional demand and around the time of UK Bank Holidays this processing time can sometimes take slightly longer.

    When we despatch your order you will receive a shipping notification email with a courier tracking code.

    If it has been several working days since your order confirmation, or you didn’t receive one for an order you placed – please get in touch with our Customer Services Team.

  • How can I track my shipped order?

    When we despatch your order you will receive a shipping notification email with a courier tracking code which allows you to follow your delivery.

    Please note, some countries, the extent of tracking is far reduced. This is down to the local networks in specific countries e.g. Russia and Canada.

    To track your order:

  • Value-added tax & Import duties

    For orders with shipping addresses outside of the EU, VAT will be removed from the final total payable.

    For orders shipped internationally, we will declare the pre-tax value of the package in GBP, and the recipient will be responsible for any duties and other charges due, rather than Christopher Ward.

    Please note all international shipments are subject to cross border inspections by customs authorities. Customs policies vary from country to country and so to be absolutely clear we recommend you contact your local customs office for further information prior to placing your order.

  • Will you under-report the value of my international package?

    No, by law we are required to state the correct selling price of the item purchased. If we under-declare this value, and it is picked up by customs, both the sender and the recipient will be liable for fines.

  • Which countries do you deliver to?

    We deliver worldwide from the UK with the exception of the following countries:

    • Cuba
    • Iran
    • North Korea
    • Sudan
    • South Sudan
    • Syria
    • Crimea
    • Nigeria
    • Ukraine
  • BFPO (British Forces Post Office) Shipping Information

    We are able to ship to our customers serving in the British Forces and living at a BFPO address - just ensure you have the correct BFPO number and/or the appropriate postcode, where necessary. Although initially shipped via a Royal Mail service, please note that we are unable to provide any kind of tracking information for orders to BFPO addresses.

    Customers shipping to BFPO addresses are also entitled to have VAT removed from their order.

    If ordering over the phone with our Customer Services team, we can remove any VAT immediately. If you have placed an order online, please get in touch with Customer Services, where we can have the VAT refunded back to you.
