If all the items you placed on order are in stock then you should receive your consignment within two working days of receiving a dispatch notification.

If you selected any TMC customised work such as fitting DCC, weathering or renumbering, then there will be a delay whilst we carry out the work. If however you ordered an out of stock item then please allow up to two weeks for us to fulfill your order. Pre-order times may vary, please contact us for further details or consult the relevant manufacturers website for a delivery estimate. Orders being shipped outside the UK could take much longer, please contact us for an estimate. Click here for customisation lead times

You can have your orders delivered to a home or work address that's convenient for you. You can enter delivery instructions when you're placing your order e.g. "leave with neighbour in flat 1". However TMC are not liable for any parcels that are lost or stolen if specific delivery instructions are left for the carrier.

Delivery will take place between 08:00 and 18:00 and in some cases a signature may be required. If nobody is available when your parcel is delivered and there isn't a safe place to leave the parcel, the delivery driver will leave a calling card with instructions on how to rearrange delivery.

You can also use our collect in person option and visit our showroom to collect your order. 

Orders placed before 10am Monday to Thursday will be despatched the same day.

Orders placed before 10am on Friday will be dispatched the same day however may not be delivered until Monday, and any orders placed over the weekend will be delivered Tuesday if a next day delivery option is selected.
