Standard Delivery Details (Non-Xmas)
With our fully computerised stock management system and our very experienced personnel, within minutes of placing your order before 4.45pm Mon to Fri, it is being processed. Our carriers collect from us throughout the day ensuring that we keep our quoted delivery timeline. Lyco and our delivery partners, FedEx, understand that a prompt and efficient delivery service is what you expect from us.
Delivery times are usually Next Working Day (Monday-Friday) for stocked items or 7-10 days for non-stocked items, subject to availability. This will be confirmed to you once your order has been received.
Next Working Day (Monday-Friday) delivery is available on (in stock) orders placed before 4.45pm on Monday to Friday. Orders placed after 4.45pm on a Friday will be delivered on the following Tuesday with the exception of Bank Holiday weekends where delivery will be on the Wednesday.
Tracking Your Order
Once your order is on its way you will receive an email confirming that it has left together with a consignment number from Fed EX and a link to allow you to track your order.
Your package will be delivered to the address given at the time of order and will require a signature unless you have requested otherwise. Our carriers will aim to deliver your order before the end of the day. Most will arrive by mid-day, less than one working day after it is placed.
Should you miss the carrier for any reason, FedEx UK will leave a card advising of the further options you can choose to ensure successful re-delivery. By logging onto uk.fedex.com/redelivery or calling them on your local depot telephone number shown on the card, you will be able to let them know which option is most convenient to you.
In the unlikely event your order does not arrive on time contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can also be reached on 0843 3177820. (Business Rate). We can contact the carriers on your behalf and find the reason for the delay. Additionally we can provide proof of delivery where required giving the name of whoever signed for it.
Installing your Products - Booking An Electrician
You may have decided that you would like to arrange a contractor to install your purchases.
We advise that you do not book your electrician until you have received and checked your order. Unfortunately we cannot be responsible for any charges from contractors in the unlikely event that your order is delayed, not suitable for your application or damaged.

What do I do if I receive damaged goods?
Lighting products by their nature are fragile. Our carriers are used to handling fragile goods on a regular basis and we are confident that our robust eco packaging will prevent any damage to goods on their way to you. However, sometimes accidents happen and we will be happy to help with replacements and returns if you do find you are in receipt of damaged goods. Please can you report any damage within 24 hours of receipt of delivery.
See our Returns Policy for further information on how to request a replacement or return goods to us.
