Delivery Information

Harper’s Candles is open online as usual and we are up to date with all orders.

We are shipping normally within 3 working days – but please note that we do not dispatch candles over a period of very hot weather and instead delay for a few days so that your order does not arrive having melted.

We use DHL for all our shipping.  All parcels arrive next working day from dispatch before 3pm.  If your dispatch email is after 3pm it is likely that they will go the next collection the following day.  Please allow 2 working days from your dispatch email before contacting us if you have not received your parcel as DHL deliver into the evenings. 

We will not be attending any markets or events for the foreseeable future.

All orders will be honoured and subscription boxes are not affected.

Next working day deliveries are not currently available.

We recommend that if you are at work during the day that you arrange for your candles to be delivered to a work address or an alternative address where someone will be in to take your parcel. Our courier will attempt three deliveries and/or leave in a safe place where applicable. We are not responsible for your not being in on three separate occasions when your parcels are delivered. It costs us £4 to have a failed delivery returned to us and unfortunately we must pass this on in any refunds (don’t worry – it’s only happened once!). If you specify a safe place for your parcel to be left then we cannot accept liability. Never arrange for candles to be left where they will be exposed to wet or extremes of heat.

We track each parcel to make sure that it arrives safely.

Outlying UK areas and those customers in hard to reach addresses may take up to 7 working days.

If you experience any delivery issues, please contact us in the first instance so that we are able to deal with this for you and make sure that you receive your order.


If your delivery costs are lower than anticipated (e.g. you order 13 wax melts which weigh a lot less than 13 large tins) then we will always automatically refund you the difference on dispatch and send them using the standard delivery option.
