Our charges

Groceries

20% of your grocery value, plus VAT (Toulouse, 25% plus VAT)
Minimum charge: £20 plus VAT (Toulouse, £25 + VAT)

How do we calculate our charges?

Our charges for the delivery of groceries are based on a percentage of the value of the shopping we are delivering. They are calculated at the single rate of 20%, plus VAT, of the total cost of shopping shown on the delivery sheet, with the sole exception of our most Southerly French drop, in Toulouse, which is calculated at the rate of 25%, plus VAT.

For example, if you spend £100 on your shopping and we charge you 20% of the total cost of your shopping, you would pay £20 plus VAT @ 20% (£4), which is £24 in total for your delivery.

Minimum charge

Please do note that a minimum charge applies on all grocery deliveries. This is equivalent to the charge on £100 worth of shopping. So, for most customers, our minimum charge is £20 plus VAT. For Toulouse customers only, the minimum rate is £25 plus VAT.

Payment

Payment is required on delivery and can be made by either cash or cheque. We do not currently accept  credit or debit cards. On-line payment can be accepted, by prior arrangement only.

You can pay us in either Sterling or Euro, but please note that we calculate our charges based upon exchanging Sterling with Euro, typically 10-15 centimes different from exchanging Euro with Sterling.

All transactions are subject to our standard Terms & Conditions, available here.

Finally

Do remember that most supermarkets offer promotional savings that can easily offset our delivery charge, so look for their deals online now!
