What to expect on the day of delivery?
All orders will need to be signed for. Once your order has been dispatched from our warehouse for delivery, you will receive an email that will contain tracking information.
If your order is being delivered by Parcel Force and you opted to enter your mobile phone number for delivery updates, you will receive;
- Day of delivery (SMS) advising that the parcel will be delivered that day, providing the option to reschedule to an alternative day or opt for neighbour or a Post-Office collection
- Pre-delivery notification (SMS) advising customers of their one hour delivery time window
If no-one is at home, the courier may attempt to leave parcels with a neighbour. If they do not leave the parcel, they will either deliver to a post office or return it to the depot. The courier will post a card through your door with further delivery instructions if they're unable to complete delivery, or if they leave the parcel with a neighbour.
Collect in store
If you are local to any of our stores and your item is in stock, you can order online and chose to collect in store.
Simply select the ‘Collect in store’ option during checkout, choose your nearest Wex or Calumet store from the drop-down menu and we will email you to let you know when your order is ready to pick up. Orders are usually available to collect same day in Norwich and within 2 working day from our other stores. You will receive an email once your order is ready to be collected.

With the exception of the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and BFPO (British Forces Post Office) addresses, we regret that we are not able to ship to addresses outside the United Kingdom.
What if an item on my order is out of stock at the time my order is processed?
If any part of your order is not available for immediate dispatch, during the checkout process you will have the option to dispatch the available items immediately*, and dispatch the remainder of your order when they become available, or you can choose to wait until all the items are available and we will dispatch them in one consignment. If you choose to split the order we will dispatch the available items in accordance with the delivery service you request, and the remaining items from your order will follow when they become available (at no extra cost). We will contact you before dispatching any additional out of stock items.
* Orders that contain 'when bought with' items can only be dispatched once everything in the order is in stock; if you need in stock items in a hurry please place a separate order for those products.
For confirmation on stock availability prior to order placement please call us on 01603 486413.
About our carriers, packing and packaging
Following customer feedback we use Royal Mail and Parcelforce Worldwide for most of our consignments aside from large and oversized items which many come via an alternative carrier.
We always endeavour to ensure that your parcel arrives safely and in a timely manner. We take particular care to ensure that goods are well packaged and attempt to use recycled packaging and / or biodegradable materials wherever we can.
