Free Delivery in the UK on Everything
Sinced we launched in 2005 we have made it our mission to offer free delivery on everything in the UK*.
Whether you are buying a pack of snooker cue tips or a full size snooker table you will not pay anything for delivery. We know that you are already paying enough for your items without wanting to add additional shipping costs on top.
Our standard UK mainland economy service is free and will use a combination of Royal Mail 24, Parcelforce 24/48 and a dedicated games table team depending on the type of item.
Most items are shipped the very same day as long as we receive the order before midday.
*Some hard to reach areas in the North of Scotland and in Northern Ireland may require a surcharge or a specialist quote, especially bulky items like Games Tables, you will be emailed at the time of order if this is the case, we do our best to keep these to a minimum.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Qualify For Free Delivery?
Billiards Boutique offer free delivery on all products to the majority of the UK. Some hard-to-reach areas of the UK do carry a surcharge as the courier firms charge us this increased cost and we unfortunately have to pass this on. All standard deliveries to England, Wales and Scotland will always be free, the only time this changes is for the far north of Scotland when you are purchasing a pool, snooker or other games table. Northern Ireland, Isle of Man and on some occasions the Isle of Wight are all still free if the parcel is less than 1kg in weight. Anything above this and there will be a surcharge that we have to pass on from the courier.
Smaller items like cue tips, snooker chalk, tip tools and any package weighing under 1kg can be delivered free to the whole of the UK without a surcharge as for these items we use Royal Mail.
In June 2015 we extended our free shipping plan to include the following destinations:
Guernsey - Anything except pool tables and bulky items are now free
Jersey - Anything except pool tables and bulky items are now free
Free Delivery to Mainland Europe
In addition there is also now free delivery to the following 11 countries in Europe when you spend over £150.00, pool tables and other games tables cannot be delivered for free:
- Czech Republic
We have now also extended our free shipping to a further 11 European mainland countries as detailed below. Again pool tables and larger bulky items cannot be shipped for free. The minimum spend to qualify is £250.00 or more in a single transaction.
What Services Do You Use?
It depends on the item we are sending but generally smaller items utilise Royal Mail services, snooker cues, pool ball sets and snooker cue cases are all sent via Parcelforce or in some cases UPS, UK Mail or Yodel. All courier services come with tracking and our Parcelforce service comes with £100 worth of free insurance.
What about Pool Tables and Snooker Tables?
These items use a dedicated service that generally has to be booked, there is no overnight service available on slate bed pool tables and they generally take 3-6 weeks for delivery depending on carrier schedules and the table model.
Do You Deliver Worldwide?
The quick answer is yes, of course. In the shopping cart you can use the Shipping Calculator to get delivery quotes for a variety of international destinations. However, bulky items like pool tables and table football Tables cannot be sent internationally at the moment. We can obtain a quotation for delivery of pool tables but we have found that the cost of delivery is often close to or more than the product itself.
International deliveries are handled by Royal Mail or DPD as of January 2015. We utilise the by-road service for most of Europe on a flat-rate pricing structure up to 30kg of weight. Parcels outside of Europe still use DPD but as they are by-air we are not able to offer a flat-rate and the shipping is calculated using the volumetric weight of the parcel.
Can You Provide Some Estimated Delivery Times?
All of the times below are quoted simply as a guide; items can be quicker and they can of course be slower.
