European Deliveries:

Since the completion of Brexit, we are no longer able to offer European Deliveries.

Delivery Schedule:

Delivery of your products should be made within 2-5 working days of the dispatch date confirmed in the email confirmation. If an item is out of stock you will be notified and given the option to hold the order till the item is in or you will be able to cancel the item with a full refund of that product.

You will receive e-mail confirmation when your order has been despatched. If the item is via Royal Mail please look out for the package as it may be too big to fit through a letterbox and may need to be collected from your local Post Office or Royal Mail Depot.

If the order has been despatched via DPD or UK Mail you will receive a consignment number, which can be used to track the order online at

Please use the DPD or UK Mail tracking service or contact your local Post Office or Sorting Office prior to contacting Homecare Essentials about the non-delivery on your order.

We occasionally use a delivery option known as "Insight", this is where we will utilise Whistl couriers to transport your order by road to your local area where the package would be handed over to Royal Mail for the final "to the door" delivery. When this occurs, you will receive a tracking number for the Whistl portion of the journey which will culminate at the local area Royal Mail delivery depot for your postcode. The tracking will then be updated to reflect Royal Mails acceptance of the package and will read as " With Royal Mail for delivery".

Non-Delivery of items must be reported to us no later than 14 days of the expected delivery date.

Failure to notify us of a non-receipt of order within 14 days of the expected delivery date may result in any claim being invalid.
