Christmas Delivery

Still time! For guaranteed Christmas delivery, order before UK: 21st Dec (Wednesday), International: 12th Dec (Monday). For all UK orders made after 20th Dec, please select our special delivery upgrade at checkout. International orders made after 12th Dec may still arrive, but are not guaranteed. These dates are those as advised by Royal Mail for our level of expedited shipping business contract, however, are likely to be adversely affected by Royal Mail's CWU members' strike action and are subject to change. We'd very much encourage you to order as early as possible to not disappoint - we hope everyone receives their orders in time for Christmas and will do our best to fulfil as quickly as possible. If your parcel is delayed after being successfully dispatched within the advised timeframes, we unfortunately can only apologise for the delays on behalf of Royal Mail, all way out of our control.

Extended returns: All orders made from our official webstore after 1st Dec are eligible for extended returns until 15th Jan (Sunday) to cater for Christmas gifting. Please note, if you've purchased an ANCHOR & CREW from one of our trusted partners or stockists, your order will be subject to their own (extended) returns policies and please consult their published information for further details.


We endeavour to dispatch all ANCHOR & CREW orders on the very same working day if your order is placed before 4pm GMT & BST. All items are dispatched within a 100% recyclable, sealed and padded package, and also come with a white fabric pouch and one year warranty card. If your purchased item is worth over £50.00, you will also receive a collectable ANCHOR & CREW tin along with the pouch. Thoughtful and personal, we'd like the opening of your package to be a little experience.

You will be notified via email at all stages of the checkout process when your order is confirmed as successful and when we have dispatched your order. If you choose to checkout via one of our alternative payment options of PayPal, Apple Pay, Amazon Pay or Google Pay, you may also receive a second confirmation email (please check your junk email folder).

UK Delivery

Every UK order of in stock item(s) is dispatched the same working day using Royal Mail Recorded Postage as standard regardless of the item's size. At ANCHOR & CREW we like to make sure our customers come first and so our standard Recorded option is above and beyond the typical Royal Mail First Class, enabling a degree of postage insurance, basic tracking and a signature-on-receipt. Your item(s) should arrive to a UK address within 2-3 working days (in 99% of occasions, except The Highlands and Channel Islands) and the Royal Mail Recorded Postage is entirely FREE if you spend over £20.00 on your order, or £5.00 as standard if less.

Do you want your order to be guaranteed for the next working day in the UK? With an upgrade at checkout to Special Next Day Delivery, your in stock item(s) will be shipped the same working day and definitely arrive the next working day before 1pm. This method provides extensive postage insurance, detailed tracking information and a signature-on-receipt, and costs £5.00 extra.

International Delivery

For all international shipping addresses, our International Courier Delivery service is entirely FREE if you spend over £51.00 on your order, or £5.00 as standard if less.

For all EU orders, there are no extra import duties or taxes to pay. In accordance with new EU laws effective 1 July 2021, our checkout will charge your local EU country tax rate and all applicable taxes will be paid as part of your ANCHOR & CREW checkout process rather than at the time of importing your delivery.

For all non-EU international shipping addresses, taxes are not charged within your checkout and additional taxes may be required to be paid to import your delivery. Many countries have thresholds in which deliveries under their set values are tax and duty free. If you do not know your country's import thresholds, please check with your local authority for more information.

We can ship to virtually any address in the world. We work with all of UPS, TNT, DHL and Royal Mail, and will choose the most appropriate delivery provider for the final destination address. Provision of tracking and signature-on-receipt will depend on the destination country and their customs officer policies. We work hard to secure our delivery network and ANCHOR & CREW delivers to Europe, USA and Australasia frequently.

VAT Refunds on International Delivery

All VAT charges are automatically discounted at checkout should you be purchasing from an international address - you do not need to do anything other than proceed through the checkout process.
