Thank you for visiting www.frederickschocolates.co.uk. Your support is more important to us than ever and we thank you for shopping on our website. The following are the terms and conditions that constitute our Shipping Policy.
Shipment processing time
All orders received prior to 6pm are processed the next working day. The exception to this are our handmade chocolates and products which may take longer than a day to process due to the fact we make these items fresh. There will be notes on the products this applies to. During this 2nd lockdown we are processing orders 7 days a week. Once lockdown is over, orders received on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays will be processed on the following working day.
If we are experiencing a high volume of orders, shipments may be delayed. Please allow additional days in transit for delivery. If there will be a significant delay in shipment of your order, we will contact you via email or telephone. During lockdown the delivery times may take longer due to demand but if you need something urgently, please contact us on 02380231100, leave a message on the answerphone facility with your name and number and someone will contact you to discuss your requirements.
Collection from Store
If you choose this option, you will need to collect from our store in Southampton Fredericks, The Marlands, Civic Centre Road, Southampton, SO14 7SJ. This is the only collection location currently available. Once your order is ready for collection you will be contacted by email with a time slot. Please do not arrive before this time to allow for the safe collection of your order. Further instructions will be given to you on the email.
If you are within the following postcodes areas you can choose to receive local delivery. Orders received by 6pm Monday to Friday will be delivered the next working day. Orders received after 6pm will be processed with the next working day’s orders.
