Delivery Promise

All orders are normally despatched to the delivery address that you supply within 10 days of receipt. If an item is temporarily unavailable for any reason or has a longer lead time, then you will be notified of the revised despatch date and given the opportunity to cancel your order. The Africa House use Royal Mail first class postage up to 2KG in weight. We would prefer customers to use Royal Mail Signed For Delivery so that orders can be traced.

For Christmas shopping, we urge all customers within the UK to use either Signed For Delivery or Special Delivery services to guarantee safe delivery. These option sare both available in the shopping basket postage selection options.

If you opt to use Royal Mail First Class mail we cannot be held responsible for the safe receipt of your order. In the UK any orders in excess of 2kg's will be sent by Parcelforce 48 hour service unless you specifically request an alternative means of delivery. Your credit card will be debited prior to despatch of your order.

* Parcelforce delivers parcels to UK mainland addresses up to 2 working days from dispatch. For Northern Ireland and all other UK Isle addresses 3/4 working days.

Delivery to countries other than the UK is available. Rates are stated in drop-down menus available in the shopping basket section of the check out process.

Supply of Goods

It should be noted that many of the items sold by The Africa House Limited are handmade.
