How long does Colorcl take to deliver?


Colorcl is an online retailer that sells paint and wallpaper. One of the most common questions customers have is how long it takes for Colorcl to deliver orders after they are placed. The answer depends on several factors.

Standard Delivery Times

For standard delivery within the United Kingdom, Colorcl aims to deliver orders within 3-5 working days. This delivery time applies to most areas of the UK when standard delivery is selected during checkout.

Delivery Type Delivery Time
Standard 3-5 working days

So if you place your Colorcl order on a Monday, you can typically expect it to arrive by Friday or early the following week. However, delivery times can vary depending on your location.

Delivery Times by Location

Delivery times within the UK tend to be fastest for major cities and urban areas. Orders to London, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and other big cities are often delivered within 1-3 working days with standard delivery.

However, deliveries to more rural and remote areas of the UK will understandably take longer. It’s not uncommon for deliveries to Northern Scotland, Cornwall or the Channel Islands to take 5-7 working days with standard delivery.

So when estimating your delivery time, take into account how accessible your area is. The further you live from a major urban hub, the longer delivery is likely to take.

Next Day Delivery

If you need your Colorcl order faster, next day delivery is available for an additional fee. Next day delivery orders must be placed by 2pm Monday to Friday to arrive the following day before 6pm.

Next day delivery is only available for mainland UK addresses. It does not cover Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands, Scilly Isles, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight or other offshore islands.

The fee for next day delivery is £6.95 regardless of order size.

Named Day Delivery

Colorcl also offers named day delivery for £6.95, allowing you to choose a specific day for your order to arrive. This option is available Monday to Saturday, subject to the 2pm order cutoff time.

For example, if you place your order on Wednesday by 2pm and select Friday as your named day, your delivery should arrive before 6pm on Friday. Like next day delivery, named day delivery is for mainland UK addresses only.

Large Item Delivery

For large items like furniture and appliances, Colorcl offers delivery and assembly services. Delivery times for large items depend on the product.

During checkout, estimated delivery dates are shown for large items based on your postal code. This takes into account factors like product availability, courier services to your area, and demand.

Large item delivery usually takes between 3-10 working days from the date you place your order. Bulkier items can take up to 15 working days.

Click & Collect Delivery

Colorcl offers free click and collect from over 380 stores across the UK. Click and collect orders are usually ready within 2 hours if placed before 4pm.

You simply select a Colorcl store during checkout, then receive an email and text notification when your order is ready for collection. Click and collect is a fast, convenient delivery option if there’s a Colorcl store near you.

Factors Affecting Delivery Time

While Colorcl aims to deliver orders within its advertised timeframes, delays can occasionally occur due to circumstances outside of its control. Factors that can affect delivery include:

– High order volumes during peak seasons like Black Friday and Christmas. Delivery takes 1-2 days longer during peak seasons.

– Courier or warehouse delays from weather, strikes, technical issues or other unforeseen events.

– Inaccurate or incomplete address details provided during checkout.

– Customs delays for international orders.

– Delays acknowledging receipt of large item deliveries. The courier cannot deliver until receipt is acknowledged.

– Delays collecting orders from click & collect stores.

If your order is delayed, Colorcl will try to contact you to provide updates. You can also check the Order Tracking page in your account.

Delivery Type Delivery Time
