Delivery Information


UK Deliveries

If your item is in stock, Big Game Hunters dispatch all orders the same day if your order is placed before 12pm on working day (Monday - Friday excluding bank holidays).

Once your order is dispatched from our warehouse, you will be notified by email, using the email address you provided when placing your order. You should receive tracking infomation for your order via email, or text and email if you have provided us with a mobile number.

We will choose the courier service we consider to be the most suitable depending on the size and weight of your order.

Very small items (under 2kg) tend to go with Royal Mail, items under 30kg and under 1.2m in length are sent using UK Mail. Anything large and bulky will be sent using XDP Express. The courier service we use does not affect the price you pay unless you are in one of the areas in the table below.

Unfortunately there are some areas that our couriers cannot deliver heavy and bulky items to. If this is the case, we will contact you to see if you have an alternative delivery address or refund you in full.

What if I am out when it is delivered?

If there is an occasion where they attempt to deliver your order and you are out, usually they will leave a card or send you an email to notify you that they have attempted delivery.

That card and/or email will have instructions about how to arrange redelivery or in some cases, if you can arrange to collect the order (from the sorting office for example).

You can also keep up to date with your order using the tracking information we email to you.

Delivery Times

We offer two delivery options, these are:
- Standard delivery
- Next day delivery*

If you choose standard delivery you can expect your order within 2-3 working days unless you are told otherwise. On many occasions these can arrive within one day from dispatch but this is not a guaranteed service.

There are certain large items such as pool tables which can take up to 10 working days as these come on specialist delivery services from external suppliers.

Please talk to one of our customer service advisors if you would like to delay a delivery, or have a date you would like the order to arrive. We cannot guarantee exact day, but can delay the order for one week for example if you are going to be away.

*Please Note: Currently, our Next Day Guaranteed service can only be requested by calling our Customer Service team on 01865 392 439 and paying the relevant surcharge.
Next Day delivery is only available on working days and is not available for Scottish Highlands and Islands, Isle of Man, Southern Ireland and the Channel Islands. Some areas of Scotland, the Isle of Wight and the Scilly Isles may have restrictions on orders which can be delivered next day (large, bulky and heavy items are restricted as well as some Scottish postcode areas).

Out of Stock Items

Most items that are out of stock will be available for pre-order. This will show where the add to cart button usually is, and in most cases will show a back in stock date. Please note that these dates are subject to change, and in extreme circumstances product restock dates can be delayed. We endeavour to notify all customers if products will be delayed. In the unlikely event your item is out of stock, and the website has not been updated to show this, you will be notified immediately and given an estimated date for when the item will be available. At this point you can choose to cancel the order, and will be given alternatives to the product you have chosen. If a suitable substitute is not found, then you can cancel the order and receive a full refund. We aim to keep all our websites as up to date as possible but appreciate your patience where items are not updated immediately.
