Delivery Policy


At Strangford Incubators we ensure a very quick and efficient process from order to delivery. Once we have received an order, a confirmation email will be sent to the customer outlining their purchase. We will then endeavour to dispatch the order the same working day (if before 1pm Monday – Friday UK & Ireland) or the following working day at the very latest. Confirmation of dispatch along with tracking details will then be sent to the customer so that they can check on the progress of their delivery.

Strangford Incubators aim to provide our customers with the best delivery options available which is why we are excited to offer a free delivery option for orders over £100!
