Delivery

Nationwide Delivery (via 24 hour courier)

Unfortunately, there is a minimum spend of £25 on all orders that require 24 hour courier delivery. 

We are able to offer delivery to all addresses in England, Wales and the Scottish mainland from Aberdeen southwards. Delivery costs are extremely high in other areas; therefore, we cannot deliver elsewhere.  Currently, we do not offer shipping overseas.

All deliveries are dispatched using our trusted 24 hour courier and require a signature upon receipt.

Packaging 

Our fresh meat produce is packed to ensure that it stays as fresh as possible on its journey to you. 

Once your products have been freshly prepared, they are wrapped and labelled accordingly.  Your products are then placed inside an insulated chill-box and covered with ice-gel packs.  The chill-box is then sealed securely and labelled with your name and address details. 

Our courier then collects your order and will aim to deliver it to you within 24 hours.  The ice-gel packs will keep your products safely chilled for 48 hours.  Feel free to re-use your ice-gel packs.  They are ideal for taking on picnics!

Ordering & Dispatch 

We are able to offer National Delivery on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.  Unfortunately, we do not offer a Saturday delivery service.

If you are in a particular hurry and need our products sooner than as stated above, please feel free to give us a call or send us an email before you place your order.  If we can get it to you sooner, we will be happy to do so.

Delivery Times

Your order will arrive anytime between *8.00am and 5.00pm on the chosen delivery day.  Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to give you an exact time for delivery. 

*This is subject to change during peak periods such as Christmas. 

Receipt of Delivery

When you place your order, you will be requested to provide 'Special Delivery Instructions' for the courier.  This allows us to inform the courier what to do should you be out when your goods arrive.

If you do not provide these details, and you do happen to be out when your delivery arrives, the courier will choose a safe place to leave your goods.  This may be in a garden shed, garage, porch or with a neighbour.  The delivery will be deemed complete, either when you receive the delivery in person, or when the delivery is left in a safe place.

Delays or loss in transit

All orders should arrive by 5pm on the requested delivery date (unless otherwise discussed).  Should your order not arrive by this time, please contact us immediately on 01282 617557 or by email; orders@nicholsons-butchers.co.uk.  We will look into the delay immediately and inform you of the situation by phone or by email.

Should your order not be delivered within one working day of the date given in the order confirmation, you will be entitled to a full refund.  Please note that your goods will be kept perfectly cool for up to 48 hours in their specialist packaging.


Local Delivery & Shop Collection

We deliver to the these areas four days a week; Tuesday through to Friday.  If you place your order by 1pm, we can offer *next day delivery.  If you place your order on Saturday, the earliest that your goods will arrive is Tuesday.

*Although we always do our best to offer next day delivery, there may be times when this just isn't possible.  If we are unable to get your order to you the next day, we will contact you to arrange an alternative delivery day, or offer you a full refund.
