Order Processing Time
All purchase orders are dealt with in the order that we receive them. Orders for full rolls/pieces dispatch within 1-2 days, often same day for orders received early in the day.
Cut length orders take 2-3 working days to be processed, and up to 5 working days during our busier times (trade shows, high volume of cut orders, etc). When we receive an order for cut lengths, there is quite a lot of extra work involved:
- First our warehouse have to locate and pick the roll.
- Our cutting department then take the fabric from a full roll, measure it, cut it, inspect it and then re-roll it.
- The finishing department then re-package the fabric.
- The fabric then goes to the warehouse for dispatch, unless more than one cut piece is order, in which case the process is repeated.
- The more cuts, the longer it will take to process the order
This is more time consuming than shipping a full roll/piece. If you wish to receive goods urgently, we would recommend that you order a full piece/roll as we cannot guarantee that cut length orders will be processed quickly/same day.
Litmans ship all orders by by courier. Swatches and samples only are sent by Royal Mail 1st class but it is not a guaranteed service and goods cannot be tracked. If the parcel is damaged or missing, we cannot be held responsible and will be unable to send a replacement free of charge, so this service is at the customer’s own risk. Courier delivery is next working day delivery and goods sent this way are traceable via a tracking number.
