Please be aware that due to the very high cost of gold and gold-plating chemicals, we do not stock pre-plated items (which ultimately may not sell). Therefore at Goldkote Precious Metal Plating UK, we plate items to order which does mean that it can take between 3-5 working days for an item to reach you. However we try our best to process & dispatch all orders within 48 hours of orders being received. From time to time we may have an item out of stock. If this is the case, do not worry, your item will be collected within 24 hours from our warehouse and dispatched to you within 3 days. Rest assured that all orders are sent to you fully-protected to ensure that nothing gets damaged in transit. If you have ordered personalised items these are dispatched within 3 working days and confimation emails are sent out upon dispatch of all orders.
All items on our website are carried in stock, but as these are plated to order, our delivery windows are designed to allow for the required gold-plating and quality control checks before being sent out to you.
We dispatch orders Monday - Saturdays, excluding Public Holidays.
Goldkote make delivery of your order as smooth and hassle-free as possible.
