Here at Alan Paine, we’re keeping a close eye on how the coronavirus pandemic develops across the globe. As the situation unfolds, we’re committed to prioritising the wellbeing of our employees and customers.

Our website is still operating as usual and we continue to ship worldwide via UPS. There are currently a number of delays across some European countries due additional COVID-19 checks and unprecedented demand. We are advising that these orders will take an extra 3 days for delivery. Thank you for your patience.

We pride ourselves on impeccable service but anticipate deliveries and other queries may take a little longer than usual. We kindly ask for your understanding and patience while we prepare your order for delivery. This is to ensure that all of our team members, as well as customers, remain safe. We will update you once your order is ready to be shipped. Please do not hesitate to contact our customer service team at sales@alanpaine.co.uk with any questions—they’re standing by ready to help. Like everybody, we’re doing our best under trying circumstances and ask you to bear with us.
