Delivery & Returns
Delivery time and cost
All orders received by 3pm are shipped the same day (Mon-Fri, excluding Bank Holidays) from the UK. Any additional charges for customs clearances must be borne by you and we cannot predict what they may be. Free Shipping applies to UK mainland delivery addresses only. Shock Absorber normally dispatches your order the same or next working day after placing the order. It might take longer during very busy periods such as Sale. Express deliveries are always packed and despatched in priority.

How can I check the progress of my order?
Once the order is ready for dispatch you will receive an email confirmation and a second email confirmation when the order has been dispatched.
How can I track my parcel once shipped?
UK standard deliveries do not have a tracking number so you will need to allow the appropriate delivery time.
Standard delivery parcels don’t need a signature, but if they can’t fit through your letterbox a card should be left to let you know delivery was attempted, together with details of where you can collect it from / how to rearrange delivery.
Can I change or cancel an order I've already placed?
Unfortunately, at the moment it's not possible for you to change or cancel an existing order yourself. If you'd like us to make any amendments to an order that hasn't yet been shipped, please contact us.
