Q: I made an order on your website and l haven’t received it yet. When can I expect it?

A: We aim to deliver all orders in the UK within 3-4 working days, and 10-15 working days for international deliveries. International deliveries are sent by standard airmail. If you are ordering multiple books, they may arrive in separate packages. If you have any queries on the shipping status of your order, please support@laurenceking.co.uk


Q: Can I edit my order once placed?

A: Orders placed are processed at regular points during the day and night. This means that where a product is in stock, it is likely that it has already been picked and packed before we would be able to change any part of the order.

Where your order is for a pre-order, changing the order should be possible up to a week prior to publication date. We often send pre-orders out before publication date so you receive your order on the day it becomes available.

Q: Do I have to pay to return my order?

A: If it is your choice to return the product, you must cover the return postage including sufficient insurance to cover any loss or damage caused by the shipping. If the product is returned and found to be damaged, we may reduce the amount of refund.
