Delivery Information

Delivery Charges

The information on this page applies to UK Mainland Deliveries. Contact us at info@thehuntingedge.co.uk for international deliveries or look under ‘Overseas and Non-UK Shipping Charges’ below.

Our standard delivery charge is for UK Mainland 3-5 working day delivery Monday to Friday excluding public holidays. Whilst we make every effort to ensure that you order is with you within 3-5 Working days delivery dates can be affected by the time of year and weather conditions and that the 3-5 Working Days Delivery is not Guaranteed.

If you have ordered a restricted product we have a Nationwide network of Gun Shops (RFD’s) but your order will take a little longer (7-10 Working Days) as we have to make arrangements for it to be shipped to an Gun Shop/RFD in your area. The 7-10 Working Days Delivery is not guaranteed due volumes of orders, seasonal and unforeseen events.

The correct postage option will show in your basket. Exceptions to this include heavy items such as gun cabinets and high seats where charges start at £9.99.Certain items are stored at our remote warehouse and will make longer to deliver. We do not deliver to BFPOs.

When ordering, select the Shipping option that says “Worldwide Shipping (Email us for a quote)” once your order has been placed, email us at sales@thehuntingedge.co.uk with your order number requesting a shipping quote to the designated country. We will then email you back with a link that enables you to pay for the shipping.

When ordering a Firearm, Air Weapon or Silencer/Moderator

Due to changes in the law (VCR Act-Oct 2007) you have to be 18 years or older to purchase  ANY Firearm Air Gun, Co2 Gun, Suppressor, Moderator or Silencer. This item can be collected in store with the valid form of identification and your Shotgun/Firearms Certificate. Guns, Suppressors, Air Guns, Co2 Guns, Moderators or Silencers CANNOT be posted to your home address. It is illegal to send them through the post but we can arrange for your order to be sent to your local RFD (for non-local customers) via a secure courier for you to collect. There will be a cost for this service.

For customers living in Scotland and Northern Ireland, a Licence/Permit will be required to own a sub 12ft/lbs Weapon of any kind. Please clarify this with us prior to making a purchase as we will need to take sight of your Certificate/Permit before we can process your order.

For Further information email: info@thehuntingedge.co.uk

If your order is or contains a Restricted Product, such as a Shotgun/Rifle, Silencer/Moderator/Suppressor or an Air Weapon (Including CO2 BB Guns), we will contact you via email before proceeding further.

If you live out of our 60 mile delivery radius we will contact an RFD (Gun Shop) in your area and make the necessary arrangements on your behalf. The receiving/nominated RFD (Gun Shop) will charge between £15 – £25 for the handover and ID Check, but if your total order value is below £300 we will contribute £10 towards the ID Check fee by refunding £10 of the £19.99 you paid for shipping when placing your order.

This means that in real terms the ID Check has cost you just £15. If your Order exceeds £300 we will refund you the £19.99 you paid for shipping when placing your order. This means that in real terms the ID Check has cost you just £5. And you don’t have to wait for weeks to receive your order.

All orders are processed on a queue-based basis so please do give our team the time to contact you and/or process your order.

Please note that due to UK Export Laws we are unable to ship ANY Restricted Products outside of the UK.

For all Non-Restricted Products

If your order does not contain any of the Restricted Products, listed above they will be shipped via the normal channels and no further action from you or our Team will be required and an automated email will be sent to you informing you that your order has been dispatched and tracking will be sent in a separate email by the courier.

Our delivery policy is 3-5 Working Days (Excluding Saturdays and Sundays and Bank Holidays). This is not a guaranteed delivery timeline as seasonal variations such as Christmas and Bank Holidays), unforeseen events and the sheer volume of orders that need to be processed can add delay to you receiving your order.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 Restrictions and the impact the Global Pandemic has had on us all, your order may take longer than the stated 3-5 Working Days to reach you.

All orders are processed on a queue-based basis so please do give our team the time to contact you and/or process your order.

The Hunting Edge can only state that it will deliver goods to you in an approximate period. We will always endeavor to deliver within 3-5 Working Days however product availability can vary. All goods will be sent to the address given by you in your order and stated in the Order Confirmation. Please note that your goods may be sent to you in installments as availability of products can vary. You may cancel your entire order with us if subsequent installments forming part of your order are not delivered by us. Orders received by 2pm are usually dispatched the same working day.

If your delivery address is outside of the UK, you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Any such additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you. You should note that customs policies vary widely from country to country. The Hunting Edge would like to advise each customer to contact their local customs office for further information if they are in any way unsure of local duties or liabilities.

Please note that when shipping products outside of the UK, you should be aware that cross-border shipments are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. This can lead to packages being opened and re-sealed. For Christmas Deliveries, we recommend that you order by the 15th December. We will endeavor to dispatch all ‘in stock’ orders within 24 hours, however we cannot guarantee delivery on or before the 24th December as the post may be delayed in your area.

This list is not a full and exhaustive list and other reasons may apply.

Special Order Items

These are products which aren’t always kept in stock or are tailor made. Special Order Items can have extended delivery timescales so for more information please contact us at sales@thehuntingedge.co.uk for delivery estimates.

Pre-Orders

Some of our products are so much in demand that they are on a permanent Pre-Order basis.These are usually items that are going to be out of stock for a number of weeks or are in short supply. By purchasing a Pre-Order Item you are in effect paying for your goods. As soon as the item is back in stock yours will be dispatched within 24 hours where possible. On occasion the dates given can be changed by the manufacturers so we recommend contacting us once a month by email for any updates and product lead-in time.

Other products may be a new model in the range or a product that has been launched and is available to purchase/Pre-order but has not arrived in the UK yet. This is quite common in the Video Game Industry where Games are often sold as Pre-Orders on Retail websites months before that game has arrived in the stores.

The leading time of a Pre-Ordered product can vary so it is advisable that you contact us in advance before placing your Pre-Order to find out what the lead-in time of the particular product is.

The benefit of Pre-Ordering a product is that your order is guaranteed and pre-allocated to you before the shipments arrives.

Direct Shipment Products

Some products are dispatched directly to you from the manufacturer on behalf of The Hunting Edge Country Sports. These items can be bulky or heavy, or because we have a fulfilment agreement with the manufacturer.  In most cases your order will arrive separately to any other items you have ordered. If you need to return or exchange your product please return the items to us.
