Warehouse Expansion Program Update

We are Open again!

Our warehouse has now reopened but due to the ongoing work we need to anticipate elongated shipping times, so please allow 1-2 days for your orders to be prepared, either for shipping or collection.

We are on schedule and expect our new warehouse to be fully up and running by Christmas. We appreciate your understanding throughout this period of disruption. If you have any specific questions or problems please contact us as soon as possible.

Kind regards, The Contender UK Team
