We do not guarantee it will arrive next working day as this is entirely down to TNT and beyond our control. In our experience the vast majority of consignments shipped on a next working day service will arrive next working day.
Carriage charges vary according to the goods purchased. We can only deliver to UK addresses. We will deliver the goods to the boundary of your delivery address and you should arrange for people to be available to take delivery of the goods.

If you fail to take delivery of the goods on the delivery date, TNT will re-deliver on the following day. We reserve the right to charge you for the extra delivery. We will notify you, prior to arranging a new delivery date, if a delivery charge will be incurred. Do not employ a tradesman based on estimated delivery dates. Ownership and risk in the goods will pass on delivery.
