Frequently Asked Questions

Orders, shipping & tracking

How long does delivery take?

We work hard to fulfil orders as quickly as possible and normally quote up to 10 working days for new orders, (typically most deliveries arrive within 3-7 working days).

How are HOTBIN's shipped?

We use DPD for all our UK HOTBIN deliveries. For smaller orders including spares and accessories we use Royal Mail 2nd class postage (these can take from 5 to 10 working days).

Can my delivery be left safe?

Yes, a signature is not required upon delivery. If you are likely to be out when the delivery is made and wish to provide us with a ‘safe place’ or a ‘deliver to neighbour’ option, we can pass this information onto our couriers DPD Local. Instructions can be left during order checkout. Orders with specific delivery instructions (eg. 'leave round back') are left at the customers own risk.

Goods damaged on delivery?

HOTBINs are shipped in durable, heavy duty corrugated boxes to ensure that your product arrives in excellent condition.

Should you notice damage after the delivery has been signed for (or left safe), please contact us on 0808 168 8499 or and we will rectify this for you.

Please ensure all original packaging is with the product.
