Delivery and Returns

Delivery Charges

If everything is in stock we aim to dispatch orders by the next working day.  During particularly busy times this is not always possible but we do our best! If we are out of stock of an item we normally hold the order until  we can despatch it complete.

If you need your order for a particular date please use the drop down boxes ‘Date of Party’ on the confirm page of the checkout. If we have any problems someone from our sales team will contact you either by phone or email. Please note if you have selected the Standard Delivery option, we can not guarantee your order will arrive by the date selected, but should arrive between the 3-7 day time frame.

Please give us an address where  there is someone available to sign for the parcel, as, apart from first class mail, all other delivery methods require a signature.  If the carrier is unable to deliver and leaves a card it is the recipient’s responsibility to contact the delivery company to arrange redelivery or to collect the parcel  from the depot. If you have instructed us to leave your order i.e in the recycling box, or with a neighbour this is at your own risk. The Roman Party Shop can not be held responsible for items left on your property.

If you have not received your order two working days before your event please telephone us during office hours (Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm) or email us using our Contact Form.
