Online Delivery & Returns
At Housing Units, our aim is to provide you with the lowest cost of delivery and the highest quality of service within the UK. Our delivery costs are calculated at the checkout page and are based on the post code you entered into your shopping basket and the weight and size of the items being delivered.
Courier Parcel Delivery Service - Smaller Items
Smaller items are delivered by DPD, our national parcel courier service partner, who will contact you to confirm your delivery by text giving you a one hour delivery window.
If the time is not convenient, you can use the text to change the delivery date or have the parcel left safely with a neighbour.
Where possible please supply a mobile phone number so you can receive the text message from the courier company or in case we need to contact you about your order.
Details of our delivery charges for smaller items are as follows:

Next Day Delivery - Smaller Items Only
For next day delivery order online before 12:00 noon Monday to Thursday. Online orders placed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be delivered the following Tuesday. Any online orders placed on a Bank Holiday will be despatched on the next working day.
Although we aim to deliver next day, on rare occasions, some items may take longer to deliver, for example to the far north of Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Off Shore Islands can take up to 3 working days to be delivered.
During peak shopping times we cannot always guarantee Next Day Delivery. If we are unable to deliver your product the next day we will ensure you are informed as soon as possible and will make every effort to deliver the following day.

We offer FREE UK mainland delivery for ALL orders over £1,000.
Orders containing large or heavy items but which are under £1,000 are charged based on your postcode.
