Chocolate Delivery

We offer a comprehensive range of delivery options for chocolate deliveries which will be offered to you in checkout and are based on the date of the order, total weight and the delivery address provided.

  • Please note there is no postal service on UK Bank holidays and they are not considered working days.
  • UK chocolate deliveries are made by either Royal Mail or UPS dependant on weight (Requiring a signature) and if no one is at the address to accept and sign for a delivery a calling card will be left with a telephone number for you to arrange a re-delivery or collection from your local Royal Mail sorting office.
  • You may find it useful to arrange your chocolate delivery to your place of work, family member or to order chocolates by telephone and request a 'Safeplace' (Standard UK deliveries only).
  • Delivery Costs are per order/delivery address and not per product so you can order as many chocolates as you like for the one delivery cost.

Secure Deliveries and Tracking

All chocolate orders require a signature upon delivery to ensure their secure arrival. A chocolate delivery will usually occur between 8am -5.30pm for residential delivery addresses and 9am-5.30pm for business addresses. Monday to Saturday. If it is not possible to accept and sign for the delivery at the address then a calling card will be left at the address advising of an attempted delivery and include a telephone number for you to call to arrange a re-delivery or for collection at your local Royal Mail or UPS sorting office (if local).

Should an item be returned because of a failed collection we can not be held responsible. No refund is possible due to the unknown holding conditions & temperatures that may possibly affect the quality of the chocolate.

We will deliver to the address as you enter it and cannot accept any liability for late or failed delivery if the address you provided is incorrect or incomplete. If you are not sure of the address you should check it. In the event that you select a business address, Chocolate Trading Company shall be deemed to have successfully delivered to its intended recipient by delivering it to the reception area at the business address and receiving a signed receipt of delivery from a duly authorised representative at that address.

We regret that we are unable to accept chocolate orders for delivery to an address containing a PO Box number, or from persons placing a chocolate order whose own address contains a PO Box number.
