Delivery Time

Each product page displays "ships within" information. This is the estimated time (actual time may vary) from order received until the product is dispatched from our warehouse located in Poland. The time from dispatch to delivery to your specified destination depends on both the distance from the warehouse and local regulations at the final destination. From dispatch to delivery is usually not longer than a week. For time sensitive deliveries please reach out to our customer team on

Please note that if you placed an order for products with different dispatch times the full order will be on hold until your entire order is available to be dispatched.


Shipping rates

The shipping rate for your order is determined by the value of the items in your quote. It is calculated at 5% of the quote total, plus an additional £70 charge per order which allows us to cover all the costs relating to transport and import customs procedures. This means that all shipping to the UK is Delivered At Place Cleared (DAP Cleared).

Additional duties and national VAT may be charged directly by the local tax authorities and need to be paid separately by the customer. Should you have further questions regarding additional charges please contact your local tax office.

Standard Delivery Services

Hem schedules shipments with the contact details provided at checkout (email, phone number and delivery address). Always make sure the information provided at checkout is correct to avoid unnecessary delays for your delivery. 


Small Parcels and Normal Parcels

Parcels are delivered by GLS.

We ask you to monitor the shipment via the tracking information that is sent to you. Please check the GLS website here for further details. 

GLS will make two delivery attempts to the provided address. After two attempts, the parcel will be available for collection at the nearest GLS pick up point. It will remain available for 10 days before being sent back to the warehouse. If your shipment has been returned to the warehouse you need to contact us at to arrange a new shipment. An extra delivery cost may apply.



Hem most commonly uses Gefco as Freight forwarders. This service includes standard curbside delivery. Curbside delivery means that the courier will deliver your item(s) to the curb of your specified delivery address. This service does not include inside delivery, item assembly or removal of pallets and packaging. 

Our logistics partner will contact you before the delivery with a proposed delivery date and time frame. There will be an option to reschedule if the time frame is not convenient. If you are not available at the agreed time of delivery, your item may be returned to the warehouse. If your shipment has been returned to the warehouse you need to contact us at to arrange a new shipment.

Please note, standard freight delivery is made on a pallet. This pallet will be left with the delivery.


Cancellation & Order Edits

As soon as an order is received we prepare it for shipping (unless a later delivery date was requested). This results in a small window where changes to an order can be made. Make sure to reach out to us immediately at, and if your order has not been processed for shipment by the warehouse we will do our best to accommodate requests to cancel or edit whenever possible.
