At VDC our practice is to process and despatch orders as quickly as possible. Stock permitting, orders received before 3:00pm are delivered the following working day. The carriage method chosen can make a big difference to how quickly and efficiently you receive your order. Please consider all options carefully:
You can collect from us any time between 9am - 6pm (Monday - Friday) or earlier by special arrangement.
We believe that we have finally found carriers that will provide the same high quality service as we do – so no Weakest Link!
Local deliveries (Central & Greater London) are by bike or van and are all charged at cost. Please contact our sales department for a quotation.

International Freight prices are based on weight and urgency. VDC have negotiated excellent rates with several major freight forwarders, which we pass on at cost. Consignments to mainland Europe take between 1 and 6 working days depending on the country. Clients also have the option of arranging their own collection. We can provide packing lists on request. The carriage charge for any international destination will be estimated at the time of the enquiry and may change once the order is picked and packed.
All carriage prices shown exclude VAT. Whilst VDC endeavours to maintain prices, fluctuations outside of our control do occur. In the event of this the customer will be informed at the time of ordering.
