Post & Packaging
Our aim at The Sweet Treat Company is to get your sweets to your door as soon as is possible in the best manner possible. Whether it's your home, your workplace, or to somebody else as a treat or gift, be assured that we want you to receive your order in the best condition possible. All orders are sent out within 48 hours, (usually within 24 hours) of receipt by the quickest postal method of either packet post or first class and should arrive to you within 2-3 working days from date of postage. Please note –orders placed after midnight on Friday will be posted after the weekend, due to postal services not working weekends.
The Sweet Treat Company understand that deliveries of large parcels can be troublesome so we have investigated the size of the average UK letter box and have specially sourced packaging, so that where possible your sweets will be posted through your door and waiting for you when you arrive home, rather than being taken to the postal sorting office to wait for you to make a special trip to collect! Due to the varied sizes of letter box this service cannot be guaranteed. Better still have your sweets delivered to your work address - a delivery from The Sweet Treat Company will brighten any dull day at the office.
Our sweet and simple pricing policy for postage is detailed in the table below. Where items are purchased in multiple, such as Sherbet Dips of party bags, these count as one item. (note: this is when only 1 item is added to the bag before checkout)
- 1 - 3 items = £3.15
- 4 - 6 items = £5.25
- 6 -10 items = £6.15
- 11+ items = £5.50
As is clear from the table large orders are cheaper, if you choose standard delivery, so by sharing orders with friends, colleagues, members of your family or any other sweet treat fan – you get amazingly cheap delivery.
Please note that due to the circumstances out of our control The Sweet Treat Company cannot be held responsible for delays by third parties delivering our stock - but be rest assured that if you let us know we will do our utmost to sort out the problem and ensure it doesn't happen again.
Next Day Delivery
Please note that orders for next day delivery must be completed and received by us by 2p.m. the day before you want the sweets to arrive. A signature will be required at delivery address for all next day deliveries.
Delivery will be made by either Royal Mail special delivery or through our designated courier company. We have made this as simple and cost effective as possible, and prices are set as in the following table:
- Next day delivery for up to 6 items = £6.95
- Next day delivery for 7+ items = £9.95
For next day delivery please note that orders received on a Friday will be delivered on the following Monday. Should you require a delivery on a Saturday we can arrange this but there will be an additional charge. Please contact us at email@example.com or 01962 808343 and we will work out the cost for you.
If the products are not delivered within the estimated delivery time which we quote, please contact us by telephone or email and we will try and ensure that you receive your order, as quickly as possible. Please note that while items sent by Royal Mail usually arrive within 2-3 days, Royal Mail stipulate that only items still not delivered after 15 working days are officially classified as lost. We will make every effort to deliver within the time stated on The Sweet Treat Company but we will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery. Proof of posting is always obtained and we will assist in you making a claim for lost items.
