Here at Patrol Base we send all our packages from our top of the range Warehouse based in the UK, and send all of our parcels with specially picked couriers to ensure your parcels get to you on time and in one piece.
We offer a Working Day Service meaning our parcels will be dispatched and delivered from Monday - Friday, excluding Bank Holidays.
We aim to dispatch all packages as quickly as possible, with most being dispatched within 24 hours, though at peak times this may take slightly longer. Orders which require custom intervention, such as: Two Tone Service Jobs, Workshop Service Jobs, and Defences checks may take longer to dispatch depending on the time required to complete them.
Please note that we use third party delivery services as our couriers. Couriers deliver Monday to Friday approximately between 7am and 6pm, except for bank holidays. We do not directly control the Couriers and cannot organise a specific delivery time for individual orders, however you will receive a tracking email once your order has been collected by the courier.
Please note that delivery may be delayed by extreme weather and events, such as snow or motorway closures, or at the discretion of our Couriers. Once the package has left our Warehouse we no longer have control of the package, however we can contact the Courier on your behalf should intervention be required.
On the rare occasion that we cannot supply you with an item we will attempt to get in touch with you both via Phone and Email letting you know whats happened, and will supply you with the item as soon as stock becomes available. Such examples of this are usually caused by an item being found faulty before dispatch, or we are not satisfied with the quality of the item when inspected prior to dispatch.
Upon signing for the delivery you are accepting the order is correct and in good condition, however, we do understand that you might not be able to open your package straight away as such we allow up to 48 Hours for you to advise us of missing / incorrect items.
Please note that we do not compensate in any way for time spent waiting in for deliveries even if they do not arrive, we do however accept that in life, mistakes and circumstances happen that can unfortunately mean that your item may not be delivered on time as requested e.g. bad weather, computer error etc. If such mistakes do occur we will look to resolve the issue as quickly as possible and may also look to refund your postage charge in full.
During promotional periods we may offer Free Shipping. This is limited to UK Mainland destinations only and is valid on basket totals above £140 excluding shipping costs. All orders using Free Shipping will be sent out on standard service. To use the Free Shipping option you must select it at the checkout.
Please note that if there is no-one available to sign for the delivery and the delivery fails on 2 or more occasions then additional charges may be incurred for any further delivery attempts.
Our couriers give the option to re-organise your delivery when you receive your tracking information. Please note that if you make use of such services we cannot be responsible for lost or stolen packages as this is a third party service.

Imports and Exports
Please note, it is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure the legality of importation into their own country.
We have lots of experience with exporting around the world, and are familiar with most laws, though these could change at any time, so always check with your local authority before ordering.
If we spot a problem with your order which requires confirmation we will always hold the parcel, though we cannot accept or hold any responsibility whatsoever for goods ordered which are then seized by Customs Officials or Airport Authorities in the UK or any other Country.
If goods are seized, destroyed, damaged through inspection or confiscation in any instance, we accept no responsibility and will offer no form of refund, replacement or credit.

We will issue any refunds only once the products are received and checked by ourselves.
