When will my order be delivered?

We aim to deliver all orders within the stated lead times displayed on product pages. For some orders you will be able to specify a delivery date of your choice, alternatively you will receive a call to arrange a delivery date or an SMS to advise when your order has been despatched.

See home delivery information for more details. Bear in mind that if you've ordered a number of items, they could come in separate deliveries.

Please note that delivery of certain items to Northern Ireland will be subject to increased lead times from those shown.

Can I specify a delivery date when ordering?

If you choose an express delivery service (available on selected items), you will be offered the chance to select a delivery date. For selected larger items, after placing your order our customer service team will contact you to arrange a suitable date and time for delivery.

Can I amend my delivery date or address?

If after placing your order you received an SMS or email with details on booking a delivery date or tracking your order, you will be able to use the same website link provided to amend your delivery date.

For all other orders please contact customers services.

I have not received my delivery?

If the order does not arrive on the stated day, you can check our order tracker page, if no information is available on the status of the order please contact customer services. Please also check your email confirmation for possible separate delivery dates or carriers if you had multiple products in your order.

I have not received part of my order?

If the order has been sent in different parcels then the delivery note will detail the items you can expect to find inside. Please check the delivery notes from each part of the order to make sure you're not missing anything. Bear in mind that if you've ordered a number of items, they could come in separate deliveries. If an item is missing, please contact us with the order number and details of the missing item's. We will resolve the issue for you as quickly as we can.

Do I have to be there to sign for delivery?

Most items require a signature on deliver as we want to make sure your goods are delivered and received correctly. If you aren’t around to sign for delivery and your order qualifies, you can give special instructions during the checkout process for your items to be left with a neighbour or in some other safe place. You can, if you prefer, specify a different delivery address when you order so your items go to your work, a neighbour, or another place where you can collect them. See home delivery information for details.

Can I change my delivery address?

Usually your delivery address can be amended, however this will depend on the status of the order. If it has been shipped to the carrier and there are less than 48 hours to delivery then it will not be possible to change. If you would like your order to be delivered to an alternative delivery address please contact customer services.

Do you deliver to work addresses?

Yes we can deliver to residential addresses or places of employment. If you would like delivery to your place of work you will need to ensure that someone will be there to take receipt of the goods as the courier will deliver to the place not the person.

How much does home delivery cost?

Please see our delivery information page.

Do you deliver to PO OR BFPO addresses?

Currently we do not offer delivery to these addresses.

Are receipts sent with deliveries?

Your receipt is the address label on the parcel. The order number is proof of purchase. Keep the receipt as you'll need this if you want to return items.

Does Homebase.co.uk deliver overseas?

Unfortunately not. We deliver to mainland UK or Northern Ireland only (excluding BFPO addresses). Please see home delivery information for more details.
