Delivery Options

We generally send orders via either DPD Local or Royal Mail depending on the weight of the order or the location it is going to. The options available to you may vary depending on the item purchased and your location in Europe.

Delivery Timescales:

Next Working Day

Please be aware that Next Working Day delivery is a Monday to Friday service only. Orders placed after 4:30pm on a Thursday will be delivered on a Monday and orders placed after 4:30pm on a Friday up until Monday 4:30pm will be delivered on the Tuesday. Also Next Working Day is a 98% delivery rate, it is not a guaranteed service. If you require a ‘Guaranteed Next Working Day’ service you will need to contact us to arrange this, which is charged at an additional cost of £5.00.

UPS Access Point

We also offer UPS Access Point collection. UPS Access Point locations are convenient places – such as local newsagents or other local businesses – that offer easy parcel drop-off or collection. UPS Access Point locations are designed to make your life easier as they offer weekend and evening hours. This affordable service allows for you to have your parcel delivered to an access point so you can collect it when convenient for you by taking your Driving Licence or Passport with you as I.D. UPS Access Point operates throughout the UK, Europe and USA.

Royal Mail

Smaller orders or orders to the UK Islands and Highlands are generally sent via Royal Mail. Royal Mail offer 1st and 2nd class services as well as upgraded ‘Signed For’ services. Sometimes Royal Mail can be very slow so we do not recommend choosing this method if you need your packs urgently.

Delivery Exceptions:

  • We do not deliver to outside of the EU.
  • We are not able to deliver to all areas of the UK via the same methods that may be available to customers who are mainland UK.
  • Slim & Save spends a lot of money on delivery costs.  We never ever make money on delivery and all prices charged are usually heavily subsidised by Slim & Save to keep the cost down.
