Fireworks Shipping & Delivery Information

We want to make sure you have all the information you need about our delivery process so that you can enjoy your fireworks safely and on time.

Why Is the Delivery Of Fireworks So Expensive?

At Top Shotter Fireworks, we recognise that transporting fireworks, categorised as explosives, involves unique challenges. Within the UK, a limited number of specialised couriers can handle such deliveries, preventing us from using standard delivery services like Hermes, DPD, or UPS. This specialisation leads to higher shipping costs compared to regular items. Ordinarily, the cost for us to send any order starts from anywhere between £50-70. Nevertheless, we endeavour to alleviate this expense for our customers by subsidising a portion of the delivery fee, with the final charge varying based on the order value.

Recent modifications to UK Firework Regulations, particularly regarding the transport of hazardous goods, along with a substantial increase in diesel prices, have resulted in heightened costs for transporting outdoor fireworks. To lessen the financial burden on our customers, we have absorbed the majority of these increased expenses.

We are committed to offering exceptional service and work diligently to keep delivery costs as low as possible, understanding that they may seem high. Should you have any enquiries about delivery charges, please feel free to contact us.

Please note that we only deliver within Mainland UK. For shipping to other locations, we kindly ask you to reach out to us for further assistance.

Customers are responsible for ensuring that someone is available to receive the delivery, as failure to do so may incur additional charges for redelivery.

We also require that an adult, aged 18 or over, be present at the delivery address to accept the fireworks for safety and regulatory compliance.

Shipping Times:

We process orders Monday through Friday, and we do our best to ship all orders within 1-2 business days of receiving them. During peak seasons, such as the Bonfire Night and New Year’s Eve, shipping times may be slightly longer due to increased demand.

Firework Shipping Methods:

We use a Hazardous Goods delivery company who specialise in the transportation of Fireworks. Standard Delivery typically takes 3-5 business days to arrive. Please note that shipping times are estimates and may vary depending on your location. Please ensure that when you enter your delivery address in our secure web form and that there will be someone aged 18 or over to receive the delivery. The Delivery company will take photographic evidence of an ID upon delivery. The delivery company will attempt a max of 2 times to deliver the order – upon then it will be taken back to the delivery depot. Additional charges may apply upon further attempts.
