Here at Jack's Pet & Country we pride ourselves on excellent customer service.

We know that you don’t want to wait days for your order to arrive. That’s why we send every order within the UK Mainland by Royal Mail Second Class Post or for Next Day delivery option – APC couriers. Which means that, all being well, you should receive your parcel the following working day after it has been dispatched or within 5 days.

What’s more, any order that we receive before 12pm on a working day will be despatched on the same day!

However, although we promise to despatch your order quickly, it should be remembered that delivery is not guaranteed within this timescale and parcels can occasionally take longer to reach their destinations. Parcels sent to Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly, the Channel Islands, certain parts of Scotland, Europe and the rest of the world will usually take a little longer to arrive.

There are certain items that we are unable to post overseas and if this is the case with any part of your order we will contact you by email.

How will my parcel be sent UK mainland?

Please see below * for list of Postcodes which Our Couriers do not count as UK Mainland and therefore charge us extra.

There are two options for your postage wither Standard or Next Day.

Should the item not arrive within this time scale please contact your local sorting office to ensure that they are not holding the item for you. Please note that Royal Mail do not class an item missing until 15 working days has passed as they say it can still be delivered until this time. Replacements for undelivered orders won’t be possible until after this time.
