Shipping & Returns
Shipping & Delivery
At The Antique Ironmongery Emporium, we stock a large range of our most popular products but it's impossible for us to stock everything.
We are busy during the week taking orders online, on the phone and at our busy trade counter. We order from our suppliers daily and have a quick turnaround for non-stocked products from most of the manufactures listed on our site.
If we have in stock all the items you ordered, we will dispatch either the same day or the following day depending upon the time of order.
If we must order the items in for you from our suppliers, we aim to dispatch usually between 2-3 days (on the product page it will give you an idea of the lead-time)
If your order contains multiple products, we will despatch all the items at the same time, the dispatch date will be determined by the item with the longest delivery date.
Orders are dispatched on weekdays (excluding bank holidays) any orders placed over the weekend will be processed at the start of the following week.
Once you have placed the order you will get an e-mail confirmation listing the items you have ordered including your delivery address and any other special delivery requirements.
When we are ready to dispatch your order, you will receive another e-mail informing you that your parcel is on its way with tracking information.
If there is a problem with your order we will contact you as soon as possible but this could be due to items being unavailable from the manufacture, if this happens we will try our best to advise you of an alternative or if you are not happy we can cancel the item and refund you the value owed.
If you require any products urgently please contact us and we will see what options are available, some of our manufactures do offer a direct next delivery service but this may incur extra delivery costs.
