When will I receive my order?

You should normally expect your UK Delivery orders within 5 working days from date of order placement, but it may often be sooner. For non-UK-Mainland orders, delivery time may be longer and therefore you should allow up to 2 weeks.

What is the cut off for next day delivery?

You must order by 2pm to guarantee next day delivery. Please note next day delivery option is only available for residents in the UK.

Will all of my goods be sent at the same time?

We will pick all your items together and ship your order at the same time. Depending on the number of sets ordered, will determine how best we package your items; however, all sets be sent in the same package.

When do you normally attempt deliveries?

Deliveries are likely to be accordance with your normal royal mail post items.

What happens if I am not in when a delivery is attempted?

If you are not in at the time of delivery and have given special delivery instructions, the courier will try their utmost to follow these instructions. If no instructions are given, the courier will leave the goods in a secure location on your property (if one can be found), and they will leave you a card to inform you where the parcel has been left. If a secure location can’t be found, the driver will then attempt to leave the order with a neighbour and a card will be left to inform you which neighbour. Alternatively, the postman will leave a card for you specifying that your delivery can be collected from your local sorting office, within a set time-frame. A total of three delivery attempts will be made, after which time the parcel will be returned to us and you will be responsible for covering any postage costs to commence the delivery process again.

How do I track my delivery’s progress?

In order to keep your postage and packaging costs to a minimum, we are using Royal Mail standard 2nd class service. We will therefore notify you once your order has been dispatched and provide you with an estimated delivery date.

Can I collect from a Doddl Store?

Doddl cutlery bought directly from us is only available online. Therefore, all orders will be posted as per the services outlined above.

Can I change my order after I have placed it?

To cancel or remove products from your order, or to change the delivery address, please contact us. If your order has not been processed we will try to accommodate the requested modification.

Who is responsible for import duties and taxes?

The customer is responsible for covering the cost of any import duties and/or taxes that may apply for their specific country.
