FAQs - home delivery & collecting from store

Why can't I track my parcel?

We understand that there is an issue in the Royal Mail delivery depot where some parcels haven’t been scanned yet. If you haven’t received a tracking message yet, it is likely that your order is one of them. We have been reassured by Royal Mail that they're urgently rectifying the situation and all parcels will be scanned as soon as possible. You should receive a confirmation text later on this week so you can track your parcel.

What do I do if I’ve had a message about my parcel, but it hasn’t been delivered yet?

Please be assured that we are working with Royal Mail closely on this to make sure that your order is delivered as quickly as possible. Please check the tracking on the courier tracking site using the tracking number provided.

Can I still choose to collect my order from store?

Yes, the Click & Collect service is now available in stores. Order before 8pm to collect in store at a later date. This is subject to change during busy times or promotion periods, your nearest available store and next available date will be shown at checkout. Plus, there's free delivery on Click & Collect when you spend £15. 

Can I receive a delivery if I am self-isolating?

Yes, our drivers are posting items through the letter box or leaving packages in a safe place.

We've set-up a code system that allows our drivers to confirm when they've delivered your parcel, taking away the need for a signature. 

How will I collect my order if I'm unable to?

If you're unable to collect your order from store a family member or friend can collect it for you. They'll need a copy of your confirmation email and a store colleague will be able to retrieve your parcel. 

Will I receive updates on my order if it's delayed?

Yes. We're working hard to deliver all orders on time but if your order is delayed, we will text you to let you know. 

You can track each parcel separately using the virtual assistant available on the website displayed in the bottom right hand side of this web page.
Ask the virtual assistant 'where is my order?'. You can then enter your order number to receive your updated order information.

What do I do if an item I have ordered goes out of stock?

If an item goes out of stock after you've ordered we'll cancel the item and you won't be charged. 

If a product's not currently available online, use the check store stock tool on the product page to see if it's available at your local Boots store.
