Placing an order with us is safe, straightforward and simple. Here's how it works:
See something you like? Simply pop it in your basket.
You can do this right here on our secure website, or give us a call and we’ll do it for you!
We accept Visa, Mastercard & American Express credit cards and Visa Debit cards. We also accept Paypal.
For all contact info and addresses you may need, check our contact details.
Most orders placed before 5PM (Monday-Friday) are dispatched from our warehouse that very same day (subject to stock availability and any security checks) via Royal Mail or our couriers, City Link.
Personalised orders, and products that are 'drop-shipped' (sent directly from the supplier) generally require a few extra days, due to the immediate production time and delivery considerations.
Orders placed after 5PM are processed and dispatched quick-snap the next working day.
Please allow a couple of extra days delivery time for orders to Scottish Highlands & Islands or Northern Ireland.
During times of peak seasonal demand (for example Valentine's Day, Father's Day, and especially Christmas) there may be a slight delay in the dispatch of your order, so please check our homepage for details and allow extra time for delivery.
Please note that couriers cannot deliver orders to PO Box addresses - it's nothing personal, it's just really hard to squeeze the box through that tiny slot.
If you would like to be first in line to order a new product, or something is currently out of stock (and you desperately need it in your life), you can place a Pre-Order to ensure you’re in the queue. Or just leave your email and we'll send you an Email Alert when the product is back in stock.
Pre-Orders ship via our £1.95 delivery service (UK only) as soon as they're available, although if your order is eligible for free shipping, this will apply to your Pre-Orders too.
For International Pre-Orders, variable rates apply depending on location and order volume.
When you get to the Checkout we will take your payment and delivery details but we will only charge your payment card once the goods are ready for dispatch from our warehouse.
In the event that you order items that are in stock as well as pre-ordered items, we will only charge your card for the in-stock items and the Pre-Orders will be charged and shipped separately. In this event you will receive separate order numbers for each pre-order.
So your basket's full of Fireboxy goodness, and now you just want your stuff.
It's always a good idea - wherever possible - to choose an address where someone will be available during the day (e.g a work address), as this ensures a nice and simple delivery.
Here's a few things to consider when choosing your delivery address:
Royal Mail: If you are not available when the postie calls, they will leave a calling card (with all the relevant information) and take your order to the local delivery depot. You can either collect it from there or call to arrange for re-delivery. For a small fee they will even deliver it to your local Post Office for you to collect, if that is more convenient for you.
Courier delivery: During checkout you can provide ‘leave safe’ options. That way, if you’re not available when the courier arrives they will leave the parcel safely in the area you indicate, or you can specify that they DO NOT leave safe. If for some reason the delivery fails, they will automatically try again the next working day, and then hold your order at the local depot. Make sure to provide us with your email address when ordering and we'll keep you up-to-date with live tracking of your order.
International courier options and procedures may vary.
Free Delivery - with UK orders over £50
Our Free delivery service will generally be with you within 5 working days - so if you order on Monday, you should get your order by the following Monday, though occasionally this can take a little longer so please allow up to 10 working days before contacting our Customer Service team.

We endeavour to dispatch all orders from our warehouse within 2 working days.

Import Tax: Delivery outside the EU may be subject to local import taxes, which are your responsibility where they apply.

As part of our award winning customer service, we believe that you will be delighted with your product but there may be occasions where you feel it necessary to return an item. We aim to keep the process as simple as possible. These terms do not affect your statutory rights.
You can return a product hassle-free, within 30 days of the date on which you received it and we will refund you any money which you have paid us for that product. The product needs to be in an ‘as new’ condition and complete with all packaging and components. Please contact us by telephone on 0800 044 5010 (UK) / 0044 20 33683410 (International) or email (at email@example.com) to inform us of your wish to return the goods and we will allocate you a Returns Number.
Please click on the following link to print out your returns form.
If you cannot print the returns form, please include a separate letter with your return including your order number, returned items, reason and requested outcome.
You remain responsible for the cost of returning the items and we recommend you use a secure delivery method which requires a signature upon receipt (such as Royal Mail First Class Recorded Delivery). This insures you for the cost of the items being returned, as in the rare event of the parcel going missing you are responsible for the returned products until they reach us.
If you return a product to us that is not in an ‘as new’ condition we reserve the right to return the product to you, or refund you in firebox.com gift vouchers rather than credit your payment card.
Certain products and services are excluded from this returns policy, including food/perishable items, personalised products or those made to order. These items cannot be returned for a refund unless faulty.
If you receive an item from us which is faulty, which you did not order or for any other reason which is our fault, please contact us by telephone on 0800 044 5010 (UK) / 0044 20 33683410 (International) or email (at firstname.lastname@example.org) to inform us within 30 days of receipt and we will arrange a refund or replacement.
We will provide you with a returns form and advise you how to send the item back to us; usually this will be by Royal Mail FREEPOST though for larger items we may require a courier to collect them from you. For International Returns, we will usually arrange for a courier collection at no cost to you.
If we ask you to use our Royal Mail FREEPOST address it is important to obtain a proof of posting certificate from your Post Office and retain it until we confirm receipt of your returned order.
For help returning items more than 30 days after purchase please contact us by telephone 0800 044 5010 (UK) / 0044 20 33683410 (International) or email (at email@example.com) for more information.

Father Christmas let you down? Unwanted Christmas presents? Keen to send something back, but too busy celebrating and stuffing your face with festive cheer? Worry not.
If you purchase something from our site for Christmas and the recipient doesn't have the taste to realise a) how great both you and your present are or b) the possible benefits of owning more than one of it/them, then you can send the product back to us for a refund as long as the product is unopened and in perfect condition. You must advise our customer service team before the 15th Jan and we must receive it back in our warehouse before the end of the month. Recipients can send their gifts back directly and we can offer them a Firebox.com gift voucher matching the value of the initial purchase.
This applies to any order purchased between the 15th of October and the 25th of December, which falls outside the normal 30 day guarantee.
We welcome all feedback about our service and we aim to deal with any problems or difficulties experienced by our customers quickly, fairly and with a smile (when appropriate).
