All Recorded Delivery and Special Delivery parcels require a signature on delivery and some items will need to have somebody at home to receive if they are too big to fit through the letterbox. If you unable to accept delivery, your parcel will be held at your local delivery office awaiting redelivery or collection. In cases where this is not arranged and the parcel is returned to sender, buyer is responsible for the cost of resending the parcel to them. Overseas parcels over £30 in value will be required to pay for signed and tracked delivery.

If your parcel has not yet arrived
Orders are dispatched via the postage methods above, please see the delivery section above for Royal Mail's delivery aims.
We aim to dispatch all in stock orders within 2-3 working days and all other orders within 7-10 working days, please note once an item is dispatched the postage method selected cannot be upgraded, and we cannot affect the delivery time of your item once it has been posted.
If your parcel has not arrived within the time stated on the delivery table above, please check the following locations to locate your parcel:
- Adjacent neighbours, as parcels are sometimes left in their care
- Other members of your household, as they may have accepted the parcel on your behalf
- Any outhouses you have where a parcel may be left if it cannot fit through your letterbox
- Your local Royal Mail sorting office (not the local Post Office) to see if the item has been returned to the depot as undelivered and awaiting collection.
If your parcel is still not located at this point, please contact us and we will check that the parcel has not been returned to our local Royal Mail sorting office. If parcels are still not located within 15 working days (20-25 working days for international), we will open a lost mail investigation with Royal Mail. A replacement will be sent where possible. A refund will only be issued for lost items if we are unable to replace the order. This time frame is set by Royal Mail, not ourselves.
Please note - all Royal Mail parcels are sent via their website where they encrypt the barcodes. If a parcel is falsely stated as missing and has been received by the buyer, Royal Mail and Little Booteek have the right to take legal action. You will be asked to officially declare your parcel lost to protect Little Booteek against false claims.
In the case of items that are delayed or missing, we endeavour to work with our buyers to ensure that any issues are resolved swiftly and appreciate continued contact to enable this process. Please feel free to contact us with any problems or questions you may have.
COMBINED ORDERS: WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO COMBINE ORDERS AT THE TIME OF PACKING WHERE POSSIBLE. THIS WILL NOT RESULT IN A REFUND OF POSTAGE CHARGES AS THE CHARGE INCLUDES PACKAGING AND STAFF TIME TO PROCESS THE ORDER AT DISPATCH.
