Delivery Info

Our aim is to offer the widest range of special effects products for TV, film & theatre, but sadly not all of them can be shipped by Royal Mail or our carriers. If any of the products you have chosen cannot be sent by mail order, this will be highlighted at the checkout. Please ring us, as we may be able to deliver them in our own van or you could collect from the Quicksilver Special Effects shop.

  • 1.4S & 1.4G Products can only be sent by carrier or collected from our shop.
  • Shatterglass products will only be sent by carrier at the customer’s risk.
  • Aerosols/flammable products cannot be sent by post.
  • Orders cannot be guaranteed for same day despatch as some of our products are held in storage off site. Please contact us if you need to check before ordering.
  • Orders are despatched Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays.
  • Priority delivery is one to two working days from the date of despatch from our premises and not from the time the order is placed. Priority delivery is NOT guaranteed next day. But it usually is.
  • Economy delivery may take up to a week or longer from the date of despatch and will not have any tracking information.
  • An e-mail will be sent confirming that the order has been despatched. Please note that our priority carriers will require a signature of receipt which needs to be by someone aged 18 years or over. Our carriers will only leave parcels at the address specified as the delivery address on the order.
  • Key Points (The hazard level for each product is shown in “Product Specification” on the product detail page.)
  • A small number of our products carry a surcharge because they are heavy, bulky or fragile; the surcharge will be added to your shipping cost at the basket.
