At Bulk Wholesale Sweets, we've made our delivery charges as simple as possible. We use the reliable couriers DPD to deliver packages to you. They're quick, they let you know when you need to be in, and they take extra good care of your sweets! We aim to process and despatch all orders within 2-3 working days (it's usually less than 24 hours though!). We are closed on all bank holidays so no orders will be despatched or delivered on these days. Once your order has been collected from our warehouse by our couriers, it will then be delivered the following working day to your delivery address. Please note that orders outside of mainland UK may take 2-4 working days to deliver and international orders may take even longer but we will clearly show delivery dates to you.
You will receive a despatch notification via e-mail stating when your order will be delivered once it leaves our warehouse. Please note: Express delivery guarantees that you will receive your order the following working day after we despatch it from our warehouse. We can't guarantee that this is a "next day" delivery service from when the order is placed although we always strive to despatch orders as quickly as possible.
Please ensure that your delivery address is entered correctly (including the postcode) as we use an automated system to create our delivery labels. This will ensure that your order is delivered to the correct location without any issues. As delivery addresses are not checked by our team, we can't be held responsible for any errors made by the couriers relating to incorrect addresses being given.

Unfortunately, certain postcodes with the UK aren't included by our couriers as mainland UK. The prices are calculated as a fixed rate provided to us by DPD. Please enter your postcode into our delivery estimate box on the basket page to receive a delivery quote. The postcodes affected are AB36-38, AB55-56, FK17-21, IV1-39, IV52-54, IV63, KW1-14, PA21-40, PH19-26, PH30-41, PH49-50, HS1-9, IV40-51, IV55-56, KA27-28, KW15-17, PA20, PA41-49, PA60-78, PH42-44, ZE, BT, HS, JE, GY, IM, PO30, PO31, PO32, PO33, PO34, PO35, PO36, PO37, PO38, PO39, PO40, PO41, TR21, TR22, TR23, TR24 and TR25.
Please note that the above postcodes listed are a two-day delivery service so express delivery will take 2-3 working days and standard delivery will take around 3-5 working days.
It is vital that someone is at your delivery address to sign for your order. Our couriers can deliver between 7.30am to 7.30pm, Monday to Friday. This excludes bank holidays. Deliveries can be made to both business and residential addresses. If they are unable to deliver to your address because no-one is present to sign for it, it will be returned to the nearest depot and you will be notified and asked for further instructions on how to have the delivery re-attempted. If arrangements for delivery are not completed in 2-3 working days your parcel will be returned back to us; this will incur a further delivery charge if you wish to have the parcel resent. If there are any special requirements regarding your delivery address, please ensure that you inform us of them before you place your order as a surcharge may incur.
Please note that we don't use refrigerated transport. Please bear this in mind when ordering goods such as chocolate which may be vulnerable to damage through exposure to heat. We are not liable for damages such as this during transport.
